Glossy Cinematic Pads & Pulses For Kontakt

US Riot Audio releases Candyfloss      05/04/24

Riot Audio has released Candyfloss, a virtual instrument for Kontakt designed to easily produce glossy ambient/cinematic pad sounds. here's the details in their own words...

Based on a category-based sound architecture (Body, Granular, Texture), Candyfloss is a sample-based virtual instrument for Native Instrument's Kontakt 6 that is tailored to producing pads with rich, complex high frequency elements. It draws on 60 organic sounds processed through various forms of granular treatment as a basis for musical sound design. Although technically a sample library, Riot Audio says the architecture and resulting sounds are more reminiscent of a synth.

Candyfloss's pulses, pads and other sounds combine glistening high frequency pearls, frothy mid-range rasps and grainy streaks with close-mic'ed acoustic instrument drones and washes inside an engine that allows for extensive time-based modulation and motion.

  • Custom sound design engine based on three sonic categories (Body, Granular, Texture).
