KORE 2 is a hardware/software system of truly inspirational capabilities. Encompassing a huge array of exceptional, immediately production-ready sounds, a unique work-flow optimizing interface and a new, seamlessly integrated controller; KORE 2 lets you find, play and tweak sounds – in no time.
New in KORE 2:
-Integrated Audio Engines
KORE 2 includes the audio engines* from REAKTOR, MASSIVE, ABSYNTH, FM8, KONTAKT and GUITAR RIG providing a stunning selection of premium sounds (see below).
- 500 KoreSounds®
500 unique, production-ready KoreSounds® have been specially created for KORE 2 using the integrated sound generators, effects and advanced MIDI tools arpeggiator, step sequencer and MIDI player), incorporating ingenious routing and layering. Plus, 400 effect KoreSounds® are included, based on the integrated NI audio engines and the internal effects, making KORE 2 an extraordinary effects unit.
Through the combination of high-end sound generators with the unique potential of KORE 2, the on-board sounds boast an unparalleled level of detail and depth.
The focus has been laid on universally applicable yet innately tweakable sounds, instruments and effects. Useful parameters of every on-board sound have been individually mapped to the KORE Controller, allowing for highly detailed editing. Playing and customizing sounds has never been this easy and musical.
- Sound Variations and Sound Morphing
Any KoreSound® can encompass up to 8 sound variations - 8 articulations of one sound enabling you to emphasize varying settings and nuances as part of the musical flow. The 500 on-board sounds have been specially programmed with over 3,000 variations.
The real innovation is the ability to morph sounds between their respective sound variations. For example, a KoreSound® can start as a bass-heavy MASSIVE sound, morph into a crystalline FM8 pad, gradually distort (through the addition of a GUITAR RIG effect) and finally dissolve, (through the addition of a delay plug-in) in a haze of reverb.
There are practically no limits to how sounds can be morphed. Virtually any parameter of a KoreSound® can be set as a sound variation. Internal mixer settings, volume/pan/send settings, MIDI information, audio and effect parameters as well as the sound settings of the plug-ins can be saved with a sound variation, thus making them available for morphing.
Whether smoothly morphing between sound variations with two of the KORE controller's rotary dials or switching between variations with the eight controller buttons – both processes can be automated in the audio host.
The newly remodelled, radically simplified user interface has been specifically tailored to optimize and accelerate workflow.
New In KORE 2:
- Create faster, work smarter
The new Sound Matrix lets you combine KoreSounds, plug-ins, effects, MIDI file players, step sequencers, arpeggiators and even entire performances in any combination. Simple drag and drop operation in one unified interface for all file types minimizes the time spent managing files and maximizes creativity.
Want to fuse an ABSYNTH pad with an FM8 lead sound and pattern delay? Combine an appregiator with a REAKTOR sound? Trigger a KONTAKT drum kit with a MIDI player?
KORE 2 handles all elements (whether KoreSounds, plug-ins, effects, performances or MIDI modules) in the same way and using just one interface. Making, manipulating and working with sounds and plug-ins becomes direct and intuitive as never before.
- Complexity made easy
The entire sound architecture has been condensed in such a way that any number of mixer structures, including audio and MIDI routing can be nested inside each other, while simultaneously retaining maximum clarity.
The topmost level in the KORE interface is also the simplest, allowing an immediate, musically intuitive approach - even highly complex KoreSounds are incredibly ease to use. Through double-clicking, the user can access KOREs deeper levels, enabling increasingly profound sound manipulation.
- Uniform operation in plug-in or stand alone mode
Organize your entire KORE rig for playing live, use performance presets** to switch between sounds, channel settings, effect parameters and more. KORE 2 now offers the same powerful features, whether in stand alone or plug-in mode.
- Flexible MIDI Routing
MIDI control data from the MIDI file player, arpeggiator, step sequencer or any other MIDI generating plug-in can now be routed - in the same flexible way as audio - to any number of sound destinations. For example, use a REAKTOR sequencer to trigger ABSYNTH sounds.
- Flexible Aux Routing
Creativity without bounds – in KORE 2 an unlimited number of aux channels are now at your disposal. Send the output of individual plug-ins to their own individual channels, or for further processing to other channels. Aux channels are created dynamically.
