Glass — Kontakt Player

Explore a world of undulating and evolving looped textures in 4 instruments. Each instrument comprises of 16 selectable sound sources – analogue basses and pads, studio recorded acoustic strings and woodwinds, deep modular synths and granular processed sound design

A simple user interface invites the composer or sound designer to layer, modulate and sculpt the sound material using the eclectic selection of on board filters and effects. Glass is designed to bring texture and movement to your music, inspiring new ideas without getting lost in complex menu systems
