Native Instruments Kore Update - Fantastic Offer!

Published: Fri June 01, 2007  News Feed

Anyone buying the Native Instruments ground-breaking KORE package will get a free update to the new Kore 2 software, which will be released late in the Summer, worth £329.99 (SRP). It means you will save £100!

KORE revolutionizes the way you produce and perform. Fusing sophisticated software with a highly advanced hardware controller, each component builds on the strengths of the other to form a single, versatile and powerful entity. KORE is the world’s first Universal Sound Platform and performance environment for studio producers and live musicians.

As a software instruments and effects host, KORE unites all your VST and Audio Units plug-ins into a single, uniform interface, giving you total control of your sounds with instant, hands-on access and a real analog feel.

As a plug-in, KORE can itself be loaded via VST, Audio Units, DXi or RTAS® into your sequencer, bringing a high degree of efficiency and simplicity to your production processes. In stand-alone the powerful live performance features come into their own, making KORE master of any stage.

Never before have musicians, sound designers and producers been able to take such a creative and musical approach to sound. Never before have they had such a powerful and intuitive sonic workstation at their fingertips. KORE is the new definition of sound.
