Native Instruments’ KORE will change the way you produce and perform. As the world’s first Universal Sound Platform, it integrates all your software instruments and effects into a single, unified interface. KORE gives you total control of your sound and instant, hands-on access with a real analog feel.
The groundbreaking fusion of software and hardware makes using instruments and effects easier than ever before, allowing you to spend more time concentrating on your music.
KORE – the perfect synthesis of soft and hardware.
Start Thinking in Sounds
KORE introduces KoreSound, a universal sound format that shifts the focus from individual instruments toward the sound itself. This new format allows you to manage all the presets for all your software instruments. These are then categorized in the powerful database according to specific musical attributes, making them far easier and quicker to find, recall and use at a future date.
The KoreSounds themselves can consist of single instruments or complex sounds created using multiple instruments and effects. The format also stores additional information regarding keyboard splits, layers, individual controller assignments, output routings and more.
The KoreSound format offers a further benefit: KoreSounds can be easily transferred between any sequencer and system, and between studio and stage, making set-up hassles a thing of the past.
Every single preset included with all the NI instruments, more than 10.000 in total, have been pre-configured and categorized with a variety of musical attributes and individual controller assignments, making the combination of KORE and NI KOMPLETE 3 outstandingly powerful. Just search the database for an instrument type, keyword, timbre, style or mood and you will be playing and tweaking the desired sound within seconds.
KORE is a plug-in. KORE is a host. Within a sequencer-based studio environment, KORE acts both as an audio host and as a plug-in. In its role as host, KORE unites all your NI and third party VST and AU instruments and effects into a single interface. It is then itself loaded into your sequencer as a VST, AU or RTAS plug-in, giving you a standard user interface, powerful database and instant, hands-on access to all your instruments and effects.
Master Your Performance
KORE also marks the introduction of an extremely versatile and capable performance platform with a wealth of advanced live features that finally allow software instruments to truly come of age within a live situation. Sophisticated layer and split configurations based on any combination of instruments and effects can be created and recalled easily. A powerful Performance Manager allows for seamless, on-the-fly transitions between different scenes and sound sets – either manually, pre-programmed or remote-controlled. The combination of these features with the high-resolution, interactive controller deliver a dynamic experience and let you to stay focused on your performance.
