It’s a library, and also an engine that features an X-Y pad to morph between four layers
Please poke around the walkthrough video of Soundiron’s latest instrument. We’ll also let them explain it below, but to us Quadral 3’s most intriguing feature is that you can import your own samples and then morph between them.
The Native Instruments Kontakt programming developers are doing these days is getting very sophisticated.
Here’s the release:
A Sampled Synthesis & Sound-Design library built for Kontakt
Quadral 3 is a prolific audio powerhouse. Randomize your way to your next favorite electronic score using 16 brand new groups of hand-crafted atmospheric synth pads. Combine quadrants to create layered leads, iridescent ambiences, or floating textures using our newly redesigned Ouroboros modulation engine and tempo-synced XY pad. Each sound has been sculpted with care, allowing you to weave layers together into spectacular new presets with categories like Fragmented, Sleek, Cerebral, Balmy, Metallic, and Driven. We’ve also included 36 fresh wavetables, and added user sample import so you can add your own WAV files to use them as the basis for your sounds. This rocket launches with over 300 factory patches of Arps, Basses, Leads, FX, Pads, and Plucks to get you started on your interstellar journey through space and time.
Quadral 3 is a powerful sampled synthesis engine, ideal for film and game composers who need a fast workflow while maintaining their creative spark. Dive in to tweak and automate every parameter with total control, or just click Randomize to generate a virtually endless universe of fresh ideas.
The user interface is built around four separate quadrants, an assignable XY Pad, and arpeggiator system to expand your creative potential. Each layer in Quadral 3 has fully independent sound-shaping options including Attack, Release, Offset, Pitch, Pan, and more. Every quadrant has its own individual arpeggiator and filter with 39 built-in filter types.
User sample import allows you to blend your own WAV files into the engine to make each sound truly your own. Mix and shape your samples alongside our 16 categories of sounds and 36 wavetables for your next epic atmosphere.
Quadral 3 ships with over 300 Factory Presets in 6 categories, each one lovingly crafted. They can be easily perused using the Preset Browser. You can also save new patches you’ve made using the browser, or share presets with other users. Finally, don’t forget to fire up the FX rack panel and load your synth up with dozens of DSP effects, including convolution reverb with over 100 of our custom real-world and special FX spaces to perfect your sound.
