Welcome to the Play Series MELTED VIBES online manual. Read this user guide and learn how to make detuned and wonky pop, trap, and R&B music in KONTAKT.

As part of the KONTAKT Play Series of instruments, MELTED VIBES brings detuned melodies and warped grooves to your sonic palette. MELTED VIBES offers 150 tweakable presets for producers looking to add a signature melting character to their sound. From detuned basses, swaying pads, wonky synths and bending leads, these custom presets are ideal for extra wavy pop, trap, and R&B melodics. Sounds are twisted and bent with morphing textures that make full use of MELTED VIBES' powerful sound engine. There are also numerous ways to add your own character, from effects and sequenced modulation, to the custom-designed Melt dial — whichever your approach, there is huge sonic potential to explore.

MELTED VIBES aims to balance intuitive, performance-focused control with nuanced sound design. The macros offer quick and dynamic control over the synth engine, enabling you to effortlessly shape presets and customise your own sounds. For those who wish to go deeper in sound design, you will find powerful sound editing tools and custom effects chains that offer further control and inspiration. MELTED VIBES also contains an analog-style sequencer that can produce chords, arpeggios and melodic, rhythmical patterns. Ultimately, these tools aim to empower you in your own sound creation!
