About KORE 2
The completely revamped KORE 2 music production system makes finding, creating, playing, and tweaking sound easier than ever. KORE 2 integrates 6 Native Instruments audio engines and comes with 500 production-ready sounds, sound variation, and morphing; a completely new operating concept; redesigned controller; and innumerable further innovations. KORE 2 is focused on turbo-charging workflow and freeing creative impulses.
KORE 2 stands for unique sound”in no time. Transform your computer into a Super Instrument”find, play, combine, and create sounds with unparalleled speed, power, and ease.
Production-ready sound library
KORE 2 produces an ocean of sound right from the start by integrating the most powerful Native Instruments audio engines with more than 500 KoreSounds included. Furthermore, KORE 2 is infinitely expandable with any Audio Unit/VST-plug-in.
Fast and easy access to sounds
KORE 2 makes finding the desired sound a breeze”simply choose its musical characteristics in the new and expanded KoreSound Browser or use the text search function.
In KORE 2, software generated sound acquires the tactile feel of hardware. The KORE Controller's high resolution, touch-sensitive controls guarantee tangibly direct analog-style sound manipulation.
New in KORE 2:
Integrated Audio Engines
KORE 2 includes the audio engines from REAKTOR 5, MASSIVE, ABSYNTH 4, FM8, KONTAKT 2, and GUITAR RIG 2 providing a stunning selection of premium sounds.
500 unique, production-ready KoreSounds have been specially created for KORE 2 using the integrated sound generators, effects, and advanced MIDI tools arpeggiator, step sequencer, and MIDI player, incorporating ingenious routing and layering. Through the combination of high-end sound generators with the unique potential of KORE 2, the on-board sounds boast an unparalleled level of detail and depth.
The focus has been laid on universally applicable yet innately tweakable sounds and instruments. Useful parameters of every onboard sound have been individually mapped to the KORE Controller, allowing for highly detailed editing. Playing and customizing sounds has never been this easy and musical.
Sound Variations and Sound Morphing
Any KoreSound can encompass up to 8 sound variations”8 articulations of one sound enabling you to emphasize varying settings and nuances as part of the musical flow. The 500 on-board sounds have been specially programmed with a wealth of variations. The real innovation is the ability to morph sounds between their respective sound variations. For example, a KoreSound can start as a bass-heavy MASSIVE sound, morph into a crystalline FM8 pad, gradually distort (through the addition of a GUITAR RIG 2 effect) and finally dissolve, (through the addition of a delay plug-in) in a haze of reverb.
There are practically no limits to how sounds can be morphed. Virtually any parameter of a KoreSound can be set as a sound variation. Internal mixer settings, volume/pan/send settings, MIDI information, audio, and effect parameters as well as the sound settings of the plug-ins can be saved with a sound variation, thus making them available for morphing. Whether smoothly morphing between sound variations with two of the KORE Controller's rotary dials or switching between variations with the 8 controller buttons”both processes can be automated in the audio host.
Create faster, work smarter
The Sound Matrix lets you combine KoreSounds, plug-ins, effects, MIDI file players, step sequencers, appregiators and even entire performances (consisting of multiple KoreSounds) in any combination. Simple drag-and-drop operation in one unified interface for all file types minimizes the time spent managing files and maximizes creativity.
Want to fuse an ABSYNTH pad with an FM8 lead sound and pattern delay? Combine an appregiator with a REAKTOR sound? Trigger a KONTAKT drum kit with a MIDI player? KORE 2 handles all elements (whether KoreSounds, plug-ins, effects, performances or MIDI modules) in the same way and using just one interface. Making, manipulating, and working with sounds and plug-ins becomes direct and intuitive.
Complexity made easy
The entire sound architecture has been condensed in such a way that any number of mixer structures, including audio and MIDI routing can be nested inside each other, while simultaneously retaining maximum clarity. The topmost level in the KORE interface is also the simplest, allowing an immediate, musically intuitive approach”even highly complex KoreSounds are incredibly easy to use. Through double-clicking, the user can access KORE's deeper levels, enabling increasingly profound sound manipulation.
Uniform operation in plug-in or standalone mode
Organize your entire KORE rig for playing live, use performance presets to switch between sounds, channel settings, effect parameters, and more. KORE 2 now offers the same powerful features, whether in standalone or plug-in mode.
Redesigned KORE 2 controller
Redesigned KORE 2 controller has undergone a redesign; many details have been improved and fine-tuned to work in total harmony with the KORE 2 software. Diverse functions of both modules can be controlled in real time with the hardware controller including patterns, loop length modulation, velocity, note length, and more.
Flexible MIDI Routing
MIDI control data from the MIDI file player, arpeggiator, step sequencer or any other MIDI generating plug-in can now be routed”in the same flexible way as audio”to any number of sound destinations. For example, use a REAKTOR sequencer to trigger ABSYNTH sounds.
Flexible Aux Routing
Creativity without bounds”in KORE 2 an unlimited number of aux channels are now at your disposal. Send the output of individual plug-ins to their own individual channels, or for further processing to other channels. Aux channels are created dynamically and are displayed only when needed.
12 new premium effects”among them unconventional and inspiring tools such as cabinet saturator, pattern delay, and grain shifter. Additionally, all KORE 1 effects have undergone improvement with some additional features added. In total, 32 integrated effects are at your disposal.

The context-sensitive helper is integrated within the interface. When moving the mouse over an element an explanation of its functions will be displayed.
Menus and helper are available in English, German, Spanish, French, and Japanese.

Native Instruments has seen good results in its compatibility testing with Windows Vista 32-bit. NI products generally operate without specific problems or limitations under this operating system. However, Windows XP is currently still recommended for professional music production due to its proven reliability and compatibility, especially for a productive environment where these aspects are crucial.
Windows Vista 64-bit is currently not recommended by Native Instruments for professional music production due to a lack of compatible applications and hardware drivers. Native Instruments will continue to evaluate the Vista 64-bit platform and further developments regarding relevant third-party music production software that are interoperable with NI products.

This recording software is amazing! It's compatible, and user friendly! There are so many functions of the programs themselves that you can use! Buy this, and you won't regret it!
I bought this bundle as the first purchased set of soft instruments to add to Logic 9 after reading several reviews and listening/watching many demos and trying the software at our local store. There are a ton of instruments here and it will take me a while to really learn them. Reaktor in particular looks very complex. I can report here on setup and install. Everything installed seamlessly on my MacBook Pro per the included instructions with no problems or need to call for tech support. I am running in 64bit and Kontakt is compatable, but the rest are 32bit. Because of this, I had to initiate Logic in 32bit mode so that it could detect the 32bit instruments the first time. After restarting in 64bit, the 32bit instruments show up as plug-ins and work fine. As stated, no issues with install and all the plug-ins are working. Kore 2 could find all of the libraries and access the entire suite. Now I just need time to learn...
