Native Instruments introduces RISE & HIT
Berlin, April 16, 2014 – Native Instruments today released RISE & HIT –
the first instrument dedicated to creating thrilling tension and
suspense with build-ups and climactic hits. RISE & HIT uses an extensive
range of over 8 GB of exclusively recorded and studio-produced sounds.
An easy-to-use interface offers detailed editing with integrated effects
and mastering tools for endless sound design capabilities. RISE & HIT
runs in KONTAKT 5 or the free KONTAKT 5 PLAYER.
Central to RISE & HIT is its extensive sample library of
expertly–produced sounds. From a full orchestra and heavily processed
field recordings, to other-worldly synthesized and hybrid sounds, the
library offers an incredible range of sonic material found nowhere else.
Over 4000 samples are used in 700 single-layer and 250 multi-layer
pre-designed sounds for creating hair-raising build-ups consisting of a
swelling “riser” and a shorter, climactic “hit”. Each sound comes in
four separate lengths to drastically alter the rise length, plus a
transient “whoosh” hit option easily match any score without losing
sound quality along the way. Up to four sounds can be layered at a time
to create highly complex textures.
RISE & HIT offers sound designers a comprehensive toolkit with an
intuitive interface for quick workflow and results. All features are
easily accessible through tabbed panels and can be customized within the
instrument, saving time and sparking inspiration at every step of the
creative process. Readily available are a wide selection of effects to
add character and radically alter sounds. Reverb and delay add sonic
depth, while 26 custom filters allow quick frequency design for when
inspiration strikes. 29 spatial, dynamic, and distortion effects, offer
advanced control of sound stage, size, and texture.
For further customization, RISE & HIT boasts an integrated modulation
engine designed to fully automate layer parameters. Though preset
modulation curves are available, parameters can be adjusted using
envelopes, for pinpoint accuracy and vigorous results. Once a build-up
is ready to be finalized, a suite of additional mastering effects such
as compression, saturation, and equalization can be applied to fine-tune
Key to the conception and production of RISE & HIT was sound master Uli
Baronowsky of Galaxy Instruments. Already a trusted NI partner, Uli now
brings his proven mastery of high quality sampling and sound
reinforcement to the immense sonic variety found in RISE & HIT.
RISE AND HIT is available now at the NI Online Shop for $149 / 149 € /
£129 / ¥ 17,800. It runs in KONTAKT 5 and the free KONTAKT 5 PLAYER.
