Native Instrument’s FLESH is “a fun and innovative performance synth that turns anything you feed it into an electronic symphony”.
FLESH is a new REAKTOR Instrument created by producer, musician and inventor Tim Exile. FLESH lets you upload up to 12 samples which will be analysed by FLESH so that the sound can be transformed into curves and triggers that are sent to four audio engines for re-synthesising new sonic material. These four engines work specifically on changing the sonic character of sounds, transforming samples into monophonic sequence or lead, chords, or sub-bass frequencies.
FLESH augments your music to form dynamic basslines, riffing melodies, throbbing pads, and more. The instrument is intended to provide producers with a way to enhance their live sets or to experiment with fresh sounds for original productions.
Creator Tim Exile said: “The concept for FLESH came to me when touring with my custom looping beatmaking, and improvising instrument that I built in REAKTOR. I was missing a way to make harmonic and melodic material in a live, improvised scenario. I wanted something that would empower me to create expressive and dynamic sounds which fit in perfectly with whatever was going on at the time.”
FLESH has been designed so that it’s easy-to-use and fun to create new sounds from your original samples whilst retaining the original samples qualities. You can also edit and alter the sounds with an effects section and a modulation page.
FLESH is the first REAKTOR Instrument designed from the ground up to get the most out of the KOMPLETE KONTROL S-Series keyboards. Color-coded control octaves on Light Guide make it easy to see keyswitches – even on a dark stage. FLESH also uses the Light Guide to provide tight visual feedback, highlighting sounds and samples, and sequenced harmonies. Thanks to Native Map, parameters are perfectly pre-mapped to the eight control knobs on the KOMPLETE KONTROL keyboards. Plus, you can save presets – including samples – and recall them in real time.
