Altered States provides over 4GB of world-class uniquely creative rhythm loops, instruments & samples produced by multi award winning sound designers Ian Boddy, Cuckooland, and others. Conceived as a soundtrack composer's dream library, it's the product of thousands of hours of extremely organic, unique, ultra-creative, and virtuoso sound design.
Altered States is a wonderful and inspiring sample library featuring a vast and unique palette of sounds from out of this world, that will inspire you for years to come. This goldmine of creativity is absolutely massive (over 4 Gb in total, with around 3500 .nki instrument patches and thousands of unique source sounds in WAV format). The diversity and flexibility of this remarkable resource simply has to be experienced to be believed.
In the rhythm department of this enormous library, there are thousands of loops and all are presented either in sliced format or timestretch format (via the KONTAKT/INTAKT instrument patches which use either the NI Beat Machine feature or the NI Time Machine feature), so they will automatically sync to your songs, and you can even use KONTAKT or INTAKT to apply sound-shaping to each slice if you wish.
Altered States was originally created when the contents of all of the following 10 Zero-G products (all of which scored either 4 or 5 stars in review in Sound On Sound magazine) were integrated into one mind-bogglingly powerful library:
- Zero-G Ambient Volume 1
- Zero-G Ambient Volume 2
- Zero-G Cuckooland Unhinged
- Zero-G Cuckooland Ghost In The Machine
- Zero-G Cuckooland Asylum
- Zero-G Cuckooland Ambience
- Zero-G Malice In Wonderland
- Zero-G Fields of Motion
- Zero-G Junk Percussion
- Zero-G Dream Zone
- Zero-G Ibiza Chillout
The re-programming, conversion, and organisation of this vast product was expertly carried out by IAN BODDY, one of the UK's leading synthesists, and was designed to be as user friendly and logically creative as possible.
