Motion Cinematic Grooves Adds Inspiring Rhythms For Scoring in Kontakt

This hybrid scoring tool is designed to give composers inspiring rhythmic soundscapes that will immediately add drive and impact to cinematic compositions.

News reaches us of a new Kontakt cinematic library from Olajide Paris, a composer and producer who has been the guiding hand behind several critically acclaimed libraries for the likes of 8Dio, Impact Soundworks, Audio Imperia, and Private Labs Audio. 

Motion Cinematic Grooves for Kontakt is "a cinematic, hybrid scoring tool designed to give composers instantly inspiring rhythmic soundscapes that will immediately add drive and impact to cinematic compositions". Here's what the creator told us about it. 

"Motion consists of more than 1000 organic rhythms created from electric violin, contrabass, and electric bass, put through extensive sound design processes. All rhythms are tempo-synced and freely transposable to any key via keyswitches. Many grooves come in major, minor, and power chord variants. Though sourced from those three instruments, the sounds have been suitably mangled and stomped on, resulting in audio elements akin to anything from broken muscle car engines, to rhythmic chalkboard scrapings and the sonic pounding of ion propulsion systems sending alien vessels hurtling through space. The results of this sound design are truly inspiring, and make both perfect starting points and final finishes to scores and soundscapes alike.

The library is built in a modified version of the open-source Photosynthesis engine for Kontakt which features extensive effects, modulation, and rhythmic control for nearly infinite possibilities.

The Engine

  • Main Engine: allows for blending up to three layers of sound and provides basic filter modulation;
  • A keyswitch enabled FX engine, allowing the addition of editable Lo-Fi, Screamer, Distortion, and Jump FX to truly make your sounds unique and pump with life;
  • Rhythm Engine: Add your own rhythmic delicacy with the step sequencer, and drive up the sense of movement with the on-board LFOs for panning, gain, pitch, and filters;
  • Output Engine: Controls further stereo, transient, EQ, and compressor effects.

Quick Specs

  • 1,116 Samples

  • 48khz/24bit
  • Requires full Retail Version of Kontakt 5.5.2 or higher (Not compatible with free Kontakt Player)
