An announcement was made today by Native Instruments that KORE 2, the second generation of its multi-functional host system, is now available in stores.



This new version expands and rectifies the concepts introduced and laid down with KORE's seamless integration of any software instruments and effects into a unified architecture, dynamic realtime parameter control, and complete sound access functionality. At the same time, KORE 2 expands its role by directly integrating powerful sonic capabilities with a comprehensive included sound-library based on integrated NI instrument-engines.

It still remains an open platform for all software instruments and effects. In addition KORE 2 now also includes its own powerful sound capabilities, realized in an exceptional library of 500 specially designed studio quality KoreSounds(R), each with multiple sound variations, addressing all relevant musical styles and genres. The ready-to-use sound arsenal is based on the integrated engines of ABSYNTH, FM8, GUITAR RIG, KONTAKT, MASSIVE, and REAKTOR, and offers highly focused, musical sound forming capabilities.

Kore2 Suggested retail price: $559 - €499.


It was also announced by Native Instruments the release of KORESOUND PACKS, a new line of low-priced high-quality sound packs for use in KORE 2

In reality KORESOUND PACKS are sound collections that grant musicians of various genres to exclusive expand the sonic scope of KORE 2, taking full advantage of its integrated sound-engines and the sophisticated sound-morphing, control and sorting/categorization features of the system. Four different KORESOUND PACKS are immediately available, with more to come in the near future.

Each sound in every KORESOUND PACK comes with uniform parameter mapping for the high-resolution KORE controller, allowing users to fine-tune and tweak every sound quickly and intuitively. Up to eight pre-assigned sound versions for every preset also offer extended tonal depth and variety, and a complete set of musical attributes for the powerful KORE sound browser makes it easy to integrate the sound collections into an existing preset library.

all the available at the time of this writing KORESOUND PACKS are “Best-Of” selections based on existing sound libraries of several acclaimed NI products. This includes “Best of MASSIVE”, featuring 200 KoreSounds taken from NI’s powerful next-generation wavetable synthesizer; “Best of REAKTOR Vol. 1″, a selection of cutting-edge electronic sounds from some of the most popular and unique REAKTOR ensembles; “Synthetic Drums Reloaded”, an assortment of 10 highly contemporary electronic drum kits; and “‘57 Drawbar Organ”, a gathering of sample-based sounds that constitute a legendary tone-wheel organ, complete with individual drawbar controls.

KORESOUND PACKS Suggested Retail Price: $59 - €49 . You can download them from the Native Instruments Ni Online Shop.
