How does it work?
Create rich and dramatic atmospheres from a very small number of notes played. DRONAR automatically spreads out the chord in the mid-range, adds a root bass note, a high note and then adds evolving sound effects. The eight simultaneous different sounds are then animated with LFOs, a rhythm sequencer and arpeggiators to bring them to life.
What’s more, this sonic complexity from one hand frees up the other to expressively control dials with mouse drags or external MIDI controller knobs, and record the changes as a performance in your DAW.
What makes the Master Edition different from the DRONAR Modules?
Mix and Match - Combining the eight modules (Hybrid, Guitarscapes, Live Strings, Dark Synthesis, Cinematic Atmospheres, Vintage Synth, Brass and Metal & Glass) in one instrument means that each preset (layered live from 8 different sounds) can now mix and match thousands of raw sounds from any of the modules into endless new combinations. It’s a vast playground covering a wide range of instruments and sonic terrains waiting to be explored.
No extra software required - It's developed for use with the free Kontakt Player – so you don’t need to buy additional software to use it!
Faster - DRONAR Master Edition features a new, fast-loading, more efficient engine so they’ll be no annoying interruptions to your creative workflow.
NKS compatible - Own a Native Instruments Komplete Kontrol keyboard? New NKS compatibility makes it even easier to browse, play, and control DRONAR Master Edition. Hear instant audio previews as you scroll quickly through the hundreds of presets browsing by category and mood. Enjoy hardware pre-mapping and control the main DRONAR dials from your hardware.
The DRONAR modules offer sounds crossing a wide variety of audio territories and themes. Now combined into a total palette weighing in at over 50GB, the ability to mix and match audio provides endless sonic possibilities.
The 2,068 included presets are an excellent starting point for inspiration but DRONAR Master Edition is so much more than a giant bank of presets. Once you’ve tested a few, roll your sleeves up and go straight to the ‘Sounds’ page to start mixing and matching, or hit the Randomise button for endless interesting new combinations. Head over to the Arpeggiator page and experiment with expressive gating sequences and endless runs and arpeggios. The key is to explore and play to get exactly what you need, with some very pleasant surprises along the way.
Strings to synths, brass to glass, environmental noises and synthetic textures... you can craft a rich world of sound to take your listeners on an emotive journey ranging from terror and unease to one of calmness and tranquility. Dark and chilling atmospheres, unsettling synth-based soundscapes, ‘80s futuristic Nu Wave elements, ethereal and ambient textures, uplifting glacial tones, beautiful pads, and much much more... the variety of audio in DRONAR Master Edition is simply outstanding.
