Zero-G Altered States for Kontakt
Altered States provides over 4 GB of world-class uniquely creative rhythm loops, instruments & samples produced by multi award winning sound designers Ian Boddy, Cuckooland, and others. Conceived as a soundtrack composer's dream library, it's the product of thousands of hours of extremely organic, unique, ultra-creative, and virtuoso sound design.
Altered States is a wonderful and inspiring sample library featuring a vast and unique palette of sounds from out of this world, that will inspire you for years to come. With around 3500 .nki instrument patches and thousands of unique source sounds in WAV format, the diversity and flexibility of this remarkable resource simply has to be experienced to be believed.
In the rhythm department of this enormous library, there are thousands of loops and all are presented either in sliced format or timestretch format (via the KONTAKT/INTAKT instrument patches which use either the NI Beat Machine feature or the NI Time Machine feature), so they will automatically sync to your songs, and you can even use KONTAKT or INTAKT to apply sound-shaping to each slice if you wish.
Altered States has been created by integrating the contents of all of the following 10 highly-acclaimed Zero-G products into one mind-bogglingly powerful library:

Users of NI KONTAKT or NI INTAKT please note:
The Altered States library is presented with instrument (.nki) patches. As regards any loops within the library, they can be automatically synced to tempo via Beat Machine or Time Machine controls. The Beat Machine programming has loops divided into their individual hits (slices) so they can be played at a wide range of tempos without change in pitch or audio quality. It also allows you to give each hit individual settings for pitch, playback direction, pitch envelope, amp envelope, distortion, delay, and more; a MIDI file of each loop can be easily exported so that groove, accent, and feel can be manipulated in any host sequencer.
IMPORTANT: This is not a Rompler of Plugin - with this version you will simply be downloading the Altered States SAMPLE LIBRARY in WAV format which you can use with any music software - you DON'T get the NI "Intakt Instrument" interface - but everything has been set up in KONTAKT patches which you also get, so if you have NI KONTAKT then all the instruments are already programmed, mapped out and playable.
Please note: You must have a full version of Kontakt to use the Kontakt files in this product. This product will not work with the free demo version of Kontakt.
