NEKTON - from the Greek: νηκτόν, "to swim"
The name plankton is derived from the Greek adjective πλαγκτός (planktos), meaning errant, and by extension, wanderer or drifter
Plankton is also a friendly Kontakt device for building beautiful, organic system music.
Like a warm ocean of diaphanous Crustacea, looping, colliding and generating harmonized polyrhythms PLANKTON is easy to use (once you get your head around it) and a quick way of creating gorgeous and unexpected results.
Each note of the sequence section has its own sequencer and algorithmic playback engine, with a suite of effects for individual sound sculpting.
A lovely, tinkly drift of oceanic systems music. Multiple sound sources, amorphous sequencers, cunning algorithms and a unique pitch/scale quantizer.
83 Custom IMPULSE RESPONSES per articulation to create natural and impossible spaces. Hybrid IR's can transform a piano into a cowbell, high hat or radio interferance. DRONE IR's add tuned Leslie organ for extra planktonitude.
'Fantastically useful, beautiful and completely mad - already using it in the new SLOW HORSES soundtrack' - Pablo and James from TOYDRUM - makers the coolest soundtracks in the biz
GLASS - hybrid celeste based instrument with 3 variations
METAL - hybrid Dulcitone based instrument with 3 variations
