"I have never seen such a limitless sample-based instrument!"Zardonic. Venezuelan keyboardist, DJ / composer / producer and remixer, primarily known for his heavy electronic dance music
"Transport is a brutal mashup of mayhem that makes it easy and inspiring to create all sorts of insane, loop-based beat, bass and synth parts."Tom Salta (Atlas Plug). Composer for Killer Instinct Seasons 3, Halo: Spartan Strike, Need For Speed Underground 2 & Prince of Persia.
"Transport is top notch! The bass, modular synth and “gut puncher” one shots…holy shit!!! The one shots are just the tip of the iceberg.The rhythmic synths, score percussion, and risers are visceral."Brian Trifon (Trifonic). Composer for Halo, Ghost Recon, Assassin's Creed II and many more.
Transport marks the maiden voyage of Refractor Audio brought to you by Klayton (Celldweller) as it ascends to the stars. Blast off to the outer limits of sound design with a Kontakt Instrument that gives access to over 2000 unique samples created by Klayton in the Celldweller Spaceship. Create new sonic worlds with Transport by combining 5 unique sequencers along with the Transport Probability Engine to mix, mash, and modulate them into new and exciting sounds.
How It Works
Under the hood, sits the Probability Engine. Rhythmically teleport between slices, and across multiple loops, by holding 2 or more MIDI notes. Not only does the Probability Engine randomly choose which slices and loops to play at a set rate, but it keeps track of playback, so accented notes, snares, or fills, always fall in order, should you let them.
On the surface, users have 5 sequencers to control Volume, Delay Send, Cutoff, Pitch, and Step Duration. They run on a separate clock than the Probability Engine, and can sequence in order or randomly, leaving the rhythmic, sonic and melodic possibilities without limitation.
Other features include an advanced keyswitch presets function, keyswitch pitch shifting (in addition to the pitch sequencer,) a slice repeater and stepper, velocity sensitivity toggle, and other pop-up controls for each of the 5 sequencer tabs.
In addition to the 1,400+ loops, you'll find 600+ one-shot samples comprised of drums, modular synth FX, cinematic impacts, and more.
