Over 440 GB’s of every sound you’ll ever need. It doesn’t matter what genre of music you make, Komplete Ultimate 10 is about the only package you’ll ever need. It includes industry standard Instruments and samplers like Kontakt, Reaktor and Battery, and over 17,000 different sounds, all with the highest pedigree (Native Instruments). And it all arrives on its own Hard drive.
An evolved step sequencer
Using the 16 pads placed on the front of the unit, you can create patterns intuitively while actually hearing and seeing the sounds. You can use the pads as a keyboard to realtime-record phrases, and also perform step recording by entering the pitch and rhythmic value one note at a time. The patterns you create can be used in alternate forms as you perform by taking advantage of the "step jump" feature inherited from the volca series, or by changing the "last step" to vary the length of each part. There's also a "motion sequence" function that lets you record knob and button operations and use them in the pattern that you create. Either drums or synths can now be assigned to each of the 16 parts (i.e. the 16 pads). For example you could create complex rhythms by assigning drums to all of the 16 parts.
Intuitive beat making with the Trigger pads and Touch pad
Familiar from the kaossilator is the "touch scale" function that lets anyone perform without wrong notes, just by moving a finger across the touch pad. The trigger pads that were popular on the taktile are also provided, making it easy for anyone to create phrases intuitively. The trigger pads can also be used for drum input. Settings allow you to switch velocity on/off.
A hybrid synth engine with sampling and modelling
KORG created a synth engine for the Electribe sampler that's perfectly designed to maximize your creativity. In addition to a sampler sound engine that lets you use your own unique and original sounds (samples), there are also several types of analog modelling sound engines that are great for creating synth basses and pad sounds. There can be up to a total of 999 pre-set and user samples, and a maximum of 270 seconds of sampling time (calculated as monaural) can be used. The unit is shipped with numerous drum, rhythm/phrase loops, and hit samples included. (collaborations with Sample Magic, Loopmasters, Prime Loops are included)
Modulation can make sound-creation more complicated, but we've made it easy by condensing it down to three parameters: simply select a template that specifies an effect and its target, and then adjust the speed and depth of the effect to suit your taste.
Advanced use of samples with Time Slice and Resampling functions
The "Time Slice" function detects attacks within the phrase and slices it appropriately, allowing you to play the phrase at the desired tempo without significantly affecting the sound. Sounds within a sliced part can also be used separately by assigning them to steps or parts. You can even apply an effect to a sample, and then resample it while using the knobs to vary the pitch or modulation.
