NI Play Series: HYBRID KEYS v2.0.2 KONTAKT
This is not your typical keyboard instrument: HYBRID KEYS blends sampled pianos, synthesizers, mallets, and more, adding creative effects to produce completely new sounds. Spark inspiration with extensive presets, then have fun building your own hybrid instrument by blending sounds and adjusting unique controls – dial in some dirt, add reverb, or go lo-fi with tape warble and noise. By generating unconventional textures, you’ll find new, creative ways to integrate keyboard parts into your mix.
The Sound Editor page lets you modify the individual sound sources (A/B) – giving you access to tuning, filters, panning, and envelopes.
Customize the effects chain of any preset with the Effects Editor. Quickly swap out effects using the dropdown menu, or change the order via drag-and-drop.
Quickly generate ideas with a flexible 16-step sequencer. You can also modulate up to six assignable macros such as filter or distortion.
Edit the assigned macro controls, control parameter ranges, change macro mappings and create your own custom controls from one dedicated page. The coloured macro dots give you visual feedback on your mappings for maximum ease of use.
Customize the instrument your way from the Settings page. Edit key ranges, adjust velocity curves, and more.
The main page of the instrument gives you a simple interface designed to help you focus on playing. Quickly tweak sounds using the six assignable macro knobs.
