Infekted combines the previously released Starburst with another 3 collections of sounds designed with a virus TI. This is a stunning collection bringing 542 Multi-Sampled Instruments to Kontakt. To get the most out of Kosmos Infekted you should have the full version of Kontakt 5.3, although there is support for Kontakt 4 with a few features missing. The Kosmos scripts for Kontakt are currently made up of 2 types of instrument:

Kosmos Full

KosmosFrontThe Kosmos ‘Full’ script emulates a classic 2 Oscillator Synthesizer where the Waveforms are comprised of all the samples in the Release. The synth has 2 Layers each with a selection of 6 filters, 3 LFOs assignable to Filter, Pitch and Volume of each synth layer. The effects section has Tempo Synced Delay, Reverb and a Modulator which is selectable between Flanger, Phaser and Chorus. There are 3 envelopes, one for the Amp of each layer and the third for the Filter Cutoff. Aftertouch and the Modulation Wheel can be assigned to various parameters. There is a sophisticated Randomize system at the local section and the global level with an adjustable amount. The Kosmos Full scripts are great for creating complex unique pads/sounds on the fly with ease. More Info

Kosmos Single

Kosmos-Sequencer-1-4-FrontThe ‘Single’ script is a trimmed down version of the Full Kosmos script tailored to work with a single sampled Instrument. In comparison to the Full script, these instruments are loaded into RAM (as opposed to using DFD) which enables the addition of a Sample Start Offset Knob. The star of the show however is the Advanced Sequencer which has 8 individual  ‘instances’ which can be switched on the fly via a set of midi note triggers. Each of these instances has 7 sequencers, one dedicated to pitch, one dedicated to Velocity, and the other 5 are freely assignable to a large array of destinations such as Note Length, Sample Start, Cutoff, Resonance etc… All sequences are synced to the Pitch Sequencer tempo by default but they can also have an independent tempo setting and they all have their own step size. Each of the 8 instances can also have different Destinations selected which really opens up creative freedom.

There is also a series of real-time triggers for manipulation tempo and Pitch on the fly which truly makes Kosmos a creative improvisation tool when added to the ability to switch Instances on the fly. The octave where the triggers reside can also be set whichever Octave you prefer.

Finally there is also a Scale Remapper which allows retuning sequences based on the root note that triggered them, so for example C key can be forced to C Minor whereas the D sequences can be forced to D major. This is a great way of breaking away from the traditional transposed sequenced sound when required. Sequencer Info

These videos should give a very good idea of some of the possibilities Kosmos/Infekted offers:

The Samples

Each Virus preset was designed over a series of months to be musically useful for the most part, so there is nothing particularly wild. There are plenty of succulent basses, leads, pads and everything in between which makes Infekted a superb electronic music workhorse. The intention was to build a rompler type collection of base instruments to feed the Kosmos Synths. Inside Kosmos the randomization can be used to quickly create unique and varied sounds, each section has it’s own default/randomize buttons, as well as the ability to be included/excluded from the global randomizer.

    • 6 Pole Low Pass
    • 4 Pole Hi Pass
    • Ladder Low Pass
    • Vowel
    • Phaser
  • 3 Tempo based LFOs
    • Each LFO has the following Destinations:
      • Filter A
      • Filter B
      • Volume A
      • Volume B
      • Tune A
      • Tune B
    • LFO 1 Can be set to Freeform Mode (Doesn't Retrigger on a new note)
    • LFO 2 can modulate LFO 1 Frequency
    • LFO 3 can modulate LFO 2 Frequency
  • Reverb with adjustable amount and Reverb Time
  • Tempo Delay with adjustable Time
  • Modulator with a choice of 3 effects:
  • Flanger at 10 different speeds
  • Phaser at 10 different speeds
  • Chorus at 10 different speeds
  • Saturation
  • Drive/Distortion
  • LOFI Mode – 12bit / 26.0 HZ
  • Gentle Limiter
  • Bass Cut
  • Adjustable Pitch Bend Range -12 > +12
  • 3 Envelopes - a Volume Envelope for each Synth and a Filter Envelope each with:
    • Shape
    • Attack Time
    • Hold
    • Decay
    • Sustain
    • Release
  • Randomization Amount which determines how aggressive Randomization is for most parameters
  • Mod Wheel has individual assignments for:
    • Vibrato Amount
    • Filter Cutoff A
    • Filter Cutoff B
    • Resonance
  • Aftertouch has assignments for
    • Filter Cutoff A
    • Filter Cutoff B

  • Global Randomize enable for each section to decide whether the section should be randomized.
  • Polyphonic Sequencer with 3 sequencers
    • Play/Pitch sequencer
      • Decides which Notes will play, and additionally their pitch.
      • The 1st 5 notes are for octaves only actual Pitch/+1/+2/-1/-2 like a classic Arpeggiator
      • This is followed by an Octave in Semitones so that melodic sequences can be made
    • Velocity Sequencer
      • Determines the Velocity of Each played note
      • Has an independent Step Length so that Poly-rhythms are possible
      • Because each Synth has separate assignments for Velocity→Amp & Velocity→ Cutoff, interesting Filter and Volume effects can be created
    • Note Length Sequencer
      • Changes the note length of each step up to 2X the current step size
      • Has an independent Step Length so that Poly-rhythms are possible
      • For best results turn the AMP Envelope/Filter Envelope Release times to a lowish number so that you can hear the results clearly
