Slate + Ash Auras v1.1.0 KONTAKT screenshot
Audioz | 27 Jul 2020 | 8.10GB
AURAS is an exploration of the realm of musical sound that is formless or indefinable in nature. These sonic sculptures can be shaped and controlled using MIDI keyboards and controllers, including MPE (Midi Polyphonic Expression) technology such as the ROLI Seaboard or Haken Continuum, which have the ability to mould the sound per note whilst playing.

As well as exploring the curated sound world of the AURAS patches, new sonic landscapes can be created and customised using the COLOURS environment. Simple assignment of sound shaping parameters to any MIDI sliders, knobs or controllers makes designing completely unique performable textures easy and quick.

The sound world of AURAS focuses primarily on abstract and impressionistic textures and rhythms. It is influenced by the styles of composers and artists who blur the boundaries between sound design, orchestration and music. John Luther Adams, Ben Frost, Ingram Marshall, Tim Hecker, Ian William Craig, Machinedrum and William Basinski were all reference points for a library that explores the manipulation of sound as if it were an energetic field or aura of sonic texture that constantly shifts in shape and colour.

Deeply programmed MIDI control enables this concept to be played with intuitively and expressively. Unlike the way a regular sample library gives a strictly defined and static snapshot of a sound, AURAS allows the shapes and forms of each sound to be played with in a dynamic and unique way.

A wide variety of sounds were recorded as material for the sound design, with an emphasis on capturing performance and movement rather than a vast array of multi-sampled notes. Strings, synths, winds, field recordings, percussion and more were used as source material that was processed using a number of techniques and effects to create a sonic landscape that ranges from soft and fragile to complete chaos.

+ Compatible with MIDI keyboards, MIDI controllers, ROLI Seaboard, ROLI Blocks and Haken Continuum
+ Approx 9GB samples compressed
+ Runs in the free Kontakt 6.3.2 Player or full Kontakt 6.3.2 or higher

Sounds fantastic, thanks Decibelle.
Need more midi controllers than just the modulation dial on my Keystation to truly take advantage of its abilities though. Can't afford a Roli though.

Just love this library! I noticed that all the patches by default are set to "+ group" (ie omni) in Kontakt, regardless of the midi channel it's loaded in. I know how to edit the patch and fix it but I wondered if there is a way to do this more efficiently instead of doing patch by patch?

installation keeps failing on me... any help would be appreciated
If it ain't loud? I don't wanna hear it!

it works with winzip for dungus but for me winzip tells me corrupt ... i will try otherwise with winzip
and redo with keka that I had left after an hour of decompression.
Maybe walk with keka but don't be in a hurry.
count more than an hour of decompression time with keka.
