Library of interactive compositions
Origins by Anello Capuano allows you to build extended, original pieces starting from organised long patterns as building blocks, live switchable sections and themes. Every theme will invite you to a different journey, a breath of fresh air for film and game work with modern mixes of authentic sounds and groove elements.
8 Themes with Switchable Sections - Every section in each theme are built by similar instruments. It allows you to build unique compositions by live cross-switching between sections and use all patterns in sections as building blocks. All patterns are always in sync with our SyncPlay tech, allowing you to compose while playing and add detailed gestures from patterns, in sync, always.
Recorded Long Patterns as Building blocks - Origins brings a big pool of recorded long patterns (up to 25 sec. each) to be used as building blocks for your tracks or to find fast inspiration and add fresh elements to your already formed beats.
All Patterns in Themes Work in Cohesion - All patterns in each section are recorded to work with each other and all sections of the same theme has a similar vibe with developing musical expression.
Modern World and Groove Music Themes - Origins content is recorded and composed by Anello Capuano and his team. Acclaimed as one of the most prominent world music multi-instrumentalist, he mixed different cultures and musical forms to create this unique library. This library fuses world, groove, jazz and other forms in a modern way.
SyncPlay - Pattern Composing Technology
Think of SyncPlay mode as a background sync’er when you are playing patterns. What happens when you normally play a sample in Kontakt (by keyboard or MIDI). It starts the corresponding sample at sample start and plays as long as you hold the key.
Now, in SyncPlay mode, when you play a sample (by keyboard or MIDI) and if there’s another sample already playing, the new sample will start playing at a synced position allowing you to compose while playing and add detailed gestures from patterns.
Master Panels & Keyboard
Play & Mod panels will help you further shape, tune and modulate the patterns to better fit into your mixes. Yellow keys are patterns to play and blue keys are tuning options and the red keys are ready to live switch sections.
What are the tuning options for Themes?
Origins themes all come with 3 native root key options, different for each theme. You can further tune the themes with the tune knob but tuning quality may differ (we recommend up to 2 semitones). About half of all patterns are percussive (non-tonal), so these can be used for all keys in your tracks.
Can Origins be used with your own tracks?
Yes, you can build complete tracks with Origins using different themes and sections or add elements to your existing tracks (see Building a Track demo).
