- Many customisable effects presets
- Native Instruments Komplete Kontrol and Maschine ready
- Samples at 44.1kHz/24-bit.
With the included browser call “multi core browser” you can load different audio material that is looped, if you feel lucky you can use the randomizer button to have the engine select the loops by chance. That way you can create a wide variety of sounds which are new every time. You can also select the theme of the loop by selecting one or many categories.
I would recommend that you select one or two loops you like and add the remaining loops based on your need or taste. You can always change the whole complete sound by using different effects per loop including reverb, delay, filters, distortion, and additional ones. Or you apply mastering effects to all loop cores.
RHYTHMOLOGY strength is the dynamic functionality that is at your control. There are so many dynamic elements that allow you to tweak, change, bend and mangle that the sample to create your own sound.
One limitation of Kontakt is that you cannot easily add you own library of samples to be used by RHYTHMOLOGY. This is an issue of Kontakt that I did see with other libraries which addressed it by providing a skeleton where you need to load and define samples in a very manual way. I however hope that RHYTHMOLOGY will be expanded by the vendor through expansion packs to further increase the value of RHYTHMOLOGY.
With the Random button in the library you can randomize all played loops and effects used. The randomize button was used in other Sample Logic product like Arpology,
Cinemorphx, Morphestra 2, Cinematic Guitars Organic Atmospheres, GAMELAN, and CINEMATIC GUITARS INFINITY, where it does provide a great way to create new sound and combination of sounds even through randomly applied effects.
Selecting, mixing and matching the rhythmic sounds is done through an intuitive user interface which is aimed to help you to be quicker in creating new sounds and music elements. Loops are split into rhythmic segments, which you can further manipulate.
