Based around a set of musical parameters controlled by the user, Riff Generation is designed to create complex and surprising combinations of synth-based melodies, rhythms and sound design with the press of a button.

With an engine powered by Native Instruments' Kontakt Player platform, every riff adapts to the user's tempo, key, scale and currently played note.

Perfect for song starters, ambient washes, basslines and pluck-laden pulses, Riff Generation closes the distance between the start and the finish of any track.

“…Riff Generation is one of the deepest Kontakt libraries we’ve ever seen, conjuring original melodic patterns out of thin air.” Computer Music Magazine

“We are impressed: Riff Generation shines as an innovative creative tool… Two thumbs up!”
Score: 6/6, Recommendation Award, Beat Magazine

“Never has there been such a brilliant combination of elements that allow you to quickly create the underlying rhythm and/or melody for an entire song in such rapid fashion while maintaining an almost surgical precision in control of individual parameters.” Game Shaker Award, Sample Library Review

“A touch we really like is how Riff Generation intelligently adapts to the note and scale a sequence is played in… This means that a sequence can be played across an entire song, instead of only on specific notes or chords.”
Score: 10/10, Studio.se

Riff Generation runs in Kontakt or the free Kontakt Player 5.6.8 or higher (requires a minimum of Windows 7 or Mac OS 10.10).
Riff Generation utilizes an extensive set of features, therefore, users are recommended to have an up-to-date and powerful computer/CPU for the best experience.
