Synth Magic has released P8000 for Kontakt 5.2.1 and higher (not the free Kontakt player). This is the story in their own words...
The Korg Poly 800 and DW8000 are quirky and interesting 80's poly synths that can produce very interesting sounds.
P8000 is a custom instrument for Native Instruments Kontak 5 featuring a library of sounds and samples from our very own Poly800 and DW8000 synthesisers.
We have sampled a large collection of custom samples from both machines (2.8GB of samples compressed to 1.5GB using NI's lossless compression) and placed them all under the control of the custom user interface, so you can easily sculpt your own Poly800/DW8000 inspired sounds! There are lots of presets provided to get you started and see what P8000 is capable of.
P8000 has a beautiful and easy to navigate custom user interface for quick and easy access to all waveforms. P800 comes with a large collection of presets and there's also plenty of synth sounds, Bass, Experimental radiophonic workshop sounds, all the poly800 DCO waveforms(and all footages), abstract tones, arpeggio's, MULTI's, which are all easily tweaked via the user interface
The user interface has a full effects section including: Arpeggiator, Phaser, chorus, MIDI sync delays, free delays, tape emulation, saturation convolution reverb etc. All samples are loaded at once and easily selected from the user interface.P8000 will provide you with a wide range of musically inspiring presets and MULTI's that should get your creative juices flowing.
P8000 will fit into most musical genres from: Ambient, elctronics, Boards of Candada type tracks, Dance music, abstract electronica, experimental music, Chillout, Space Disco/NU-Disco, Kraut Rock, Soundscapes etc.
