THE KITS

The kits are the foundation that gives Konkrete 3 its unique sonic range and power.

A vast array of techniques, recording sessions, synths, gear and tools were used to create this unrivalled sonic palette of 5000 sounds.

Each of the 92 kits contains 61 sounds - that's a full 5 octave keyboard to explore.

THE SPIRIT OF CONCRÈTE

Inspired by Pierre Schaeffer and Musique Concrète of the 1940s, the philosophy of KONKRETE is to collect both acoustic and electroacoustic sounds and "abstract the musical values they potentially contain"

The sampler is the modern equivalent of the tape manipulation used in those days, and is the ideal tool for sonic exploration.

When placed in the grasp of KONKRETE, the simplest percussive knock can be pulled and shaped a thousand ways, giving an infinite palette of new drum sounds.

EUCLIDEAN BEATS

An exciting way to generate complex beats, based on Euclidean mathematics.

No matter how many steps or hits in each individual pattern, they will always be evenly spaced across the bar.

Assign some controllers and jam: you can't put a beat wrong.

FOCUS MODE

Play any sound from the 61 in the kit

Hit 'Focus Map'

The sound is instantly mapped across the whole keyboard :play a bassline or even a full melody.

Total creative flexibility.

SHAPE + MODULATE YOUR DRUM SOUND

The Konkrete 3 interface is packed with knobs and modulation side-faders : every single sound in every kit can be independently edited,
modulated and warped into something completely unique to you.

Each parameter can be modulated using velocity or LFO side-faders, and there are 3 full AHDSR envelopes to shape each sound.

BEAT SHIFTER

A Step Sequencer With A Difference.

Make Beats That Move.

Snares That Dance Around The Hi-Hat, Bass Hits That Really Jump Around.
