Most Kontakt Instruments Require the Full version of Native Instruments Kontakt 6.
This years Group Buy explores the Wavetable Oscillators introduced with Kontakt 6. The aim is to explore different approaches to utilizing them in interesting ways. There will also be over 1000 unique Wavetables developed exclusively for the Group Buy which are Serum compatible. There will also be a couple of Midi Instruments as well as an Euclidean Drum Machine.
This is the 4th annual Kontakt Group Buy and the process is that products are developed as the Group Buy progresses. Some are still just ideas and may adapt depending on feedback, many great ideas have influenced the Instruments in previous years.
Made with a Virus TI, a Novation Peak and various other Synths. The Wavetables are compatible with anything that can use Serum Wavetables and are used by all Wavetable Synths included in this Group buy.Serenity

A powerful Motion based Wavetable Synthesizer that uses 28 XY Sequencers that can be recorded.
An advanced Dual Wavetable Synth with a powerful Modulation Matrix and an Advanced Arpeggiator with Wavetable Sequencing.
300 New Wavetables added to all Wavetable Based Products. Created with Single Cycle Waveforms sampled from an Elektron Digitone. Also fully compatible with Serum. Wavetable Instruments also updated to include them
This synth introduces newly developed interpolated LFOs/Sequencers. Features a single Wavetable with Drag and Drop support and 4 LFO Sequencers.
Midi Based Euclidean Sequencer.
|7||360||✗||Midi Loop Effect
This will be based on something like a Midi Delay with different ways of affecting the Midi Throughput.
This will be a Euclidean style Drum Machine. The sounds will probably be created with the Peak and Digitone.
Simple Drum Module for using the EUC Drummer Sounds.
|10||510||✗||Gravity Wave WT
An adapted version of Gravity Wave which will use Wavetables and the new Kontakt 6 FX.
- The Products offered may change throughout the Group Buy as it progresses, the Group Buys are an Organic Process and subject to Evolution!
- Hopefully all products will be completed as each level is reached. This was true last year, but there is 3 months work involved.
- Note that the above table and unlocked products are edited manually and so may not immediately change when a level is reached.
- Everything up to Level 4 is ready to go.
Serenity is a Dual Wavetable Synth engine. Each Synth has a dedicated AHDSR Envelope for controlling Volume, Filter Cutoff, Wavetable Position, Wavetable Shape and Wavetable Harmonic. There is also an LFO with 30+ Shapes which can be assigned to those parameters.
The FX Section includes the new Kontakt 6 Replika Delay supporting direct control of all Modes and Parameters, and the new Hall/Room Reverb algorithms.
There is a tuned Global Randomize with adjustable Amount and Probability, plus each section can be set to be included or excluded from Randomization. It excels at creating unique Pads. The Default System uses a user defined template to create a basic Preset by clicking the ‘D’ Buttons.
Kinetic uses 4 Synthesizers and 29 XY Recordable Sequencers to create unique and complex Sounds. To Record sequences, click Record and select a Nodule, Play a Note and the XY movement will be recorded.
Kinetic includes the new Modulation, Delay and Reverb Effects introduced with Kontakt 6 as well as Drag n Drop Support for Wavetables.
There is Microtonal Scale support with a large selection of Scales to choose from and a dedicated Browser.
Equilibrium is a Dual Wavetable Synth which includes an extensive Modulation Matrix which makes it a Modulation Monster! The Sources available are 4 LFOs, 2 Envelopes, Velocity and Key Position.
There is an Advanced Arpeggiator which has dedicated Sequencers for Wavetable Position and Shape, as well as a Sequencer that can choose between Wavetable Harmonic, Cutoff, Resonance and Filter Decay.
There is Microtonal Scale support with a large selection of Scales to choose from.
The Randomization System allows loading and saving Profiles with an overlay for deciding which of the Matrix controls will be used as well as Amount and Probability settings. This means it can be used for subtle Randomization as well as extreme as you want .
