• Intelligent Woodwinds Motion Engine

• Powerful & Intuitive Design
• Dynamic Randomization with Instant Results
• A Woodwinds Instrument Like No Other
• Playful, Epic & Cinematic
• Infinite Results
• Instant Woodwinds Rhythms
At the time of this publication, there does not exist another instrument that can let you play FOUR short-sample Woodwinds sections (flutes, oboes, clarinets and bassoons) at the SAME TIME. But wit Kinetic, you get the entire Woodwinds section in one instrument. That means you get a separate timeline for each section. Each timeline contains 64 note or rest events and can be divided into up to 4 "regions". And you can have each timeline play a different pattern whether you hold down a single note or chord!
Choose from 30 fun-to-play presets. And if you really want to get wild, you can choose any of the same 30 presets for each section separately. That means you could have the flutes playing the "Superman" preset, the oboes play the "Terminator" preset, the clarinets play the "Xmen" preset, and the bassoons play the "Cap. America" preset ALL AT THE SAME TIME! And of course, any or all of these patterns can be edited.
You can also load "perpetual motion" patterns that include very useful accents. These accents can be based on every 2, 3, 4 or 6 events. Additionally, you can set whether the accents are subtle, moderate or dynamic.
Kinetic Woodwinds contains 2 piccolos, 2 flutes, 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bass clarinets, 2 bassoons, and 2 contra bassoons. And each note can be "tightened or broadened".
Recorded at the First Presbyterian Church, Santa Monica where A-list Los Angeles-based orchestras record and perform.
