NI THRILL 1.1 Kontakt Library
THRILL 1.1 is a performance instrument for playing spine-chilling atmospheres, clusters, and hybrid textures.
Crossfade between two selected ‘Thrills’ on the X-axis. Control their ‘Thrill Factor’ on the Y-axis.
Fine-tune the sound sources with fade controls, mic selection, pitch control, and envelopes.
Browse and preview the 1,038 original source sounds by category and character.
Customize the sounds with five modulatable effects types, each with dozens of presets.
Sculpt further with 4 band EQ and modulatable convolution reverb.
The master page offers EQ, saturation and compression, and curve selection.
1,038 original sources
An indispensable scoring tool for big-screen soundtracks, game scores, sound installations, or live theater productions, THRILL 1.1 all-original content features orchestral recordings and hybrid sound-design based on ambiences, custom-built instruments, voices, pitched metal, synthesized drones, and more. Two main sound types – atmospheres and tone clusters – are morphed and modulated with hands-on control, creating rich intricate layers that evolve and increase in intensity.
Create your own sound sets by combining 1,038 source sounds with X-Y-controlled modulation effects, different blend modes, custom clusters, or effect convolution. Personalize every detail manually or use the randomize feature. Then perform and modulate your sounds and experience a completely new way to design and play cinematic textures and builds.
THRILL 1.1 cluster designer offers a level of depth never before available in a virtual instrument. There are 145+ diverse and editable cluster voicing presets. Clusters can be built from scratch, with up to eight voices at definable intervals, fine-tune control, pan, and volume. Use the X-Y pad to build your cluster in real-time and choose from three dynamic modes – Glide, Add-on, and Parallel.
THRILL 1.1 X-Y control offers unparalleled fusion of sound design and performance. X intelligently crossfades the selected sounds while Y builds the energy and anxiety, as the sources and assigned parameters move through layers of tension. THRILL 1.1 is also ideal for trackpad or tablet control, for a real-time scoring experience like no other and an unprecedented level of sound-to-video interaction.
With authentic orchestral and cinematic sounds and an unrivalled performance system, THRILL 1.1 offers hands-on creativity, and a fast workflow, customization options, and ease-of-use.
