Native Instruments KORE Virtual Instrument Sound Platform fuses sophisticated software with a highly advanced hardware controller to form a single versatile and powerful platform for total plug-in control. KORE is a host that can load any VST or AU plugin and run them standalone or as a plug-in within your favorite sequencer.

As a host for software instruments and effects, KORE unites all your VST and Audio Units plug-ins into a single, uniform graphic interface. Thanks to the controller, you get instant, hands-on access to your sounds with an analog feel. As a plug-in you can load KORE with your favorite VST, Audio Units, RTAS, or DXi plug-ins then insert them into your sequencer. In standalone mode, KORE is capable of powerful, seamless, and intuitive live performance. KORE opens the doors to a whole new world of sonic creation allowing diverse combinations of sounds, instruments, and effects with hands-on control.

Use one interface
KORE unites all Native Instruments and third-party VST and Audio Unit instruments and effects into a single, clearly structured user interface, making the use of plug-ins a far easier and more musical process.

Find sounds fast
The KORE Sound Browser and KoreSound format enable you to find sounds and presets according to freely definable musical attributes, such as timbre, style or articulation. Search, browse, or filter the sound database to instantly find all the sounds that match the criteria you have specified - regardless of instrument. The search function is particularly easy. Just type in what you what, (i.e. - fat lead synth sound) and the database instantly presents the options that most closely match your terms.

Feel the software
The KORE hardware controller interacts seamlessly with the KORE software, giving you total hands-on control of all your software instruments and effects. The high-resolution, bi-directional protocol and touch-sensitive knobs with 500 steps per revolution make for a very dynamic and detailed experience. There's also a 64 x 128 pixel display that provides context-specific information. In addition to the control knobs you get dedicated inputs for two footswitches and one expression pedal plus two channels of 24bit/96kHz audio, coaxial S/PDIF output, MIDI I/O, and a USB 2.0 port for computer connection.

Make sounds portable
The KoreSound format stores a wealth of additional information—such as routings or assignments—and can handle multiple instrument and effect setups as though they were a single, simple preset. This allows sound and instrument setups to be easily transferred between different songs, sequencers, and systems without any configuration hassles.

Live Musician's Dream

By Nico

from Texas

If you are a live musician in any gender, this product will make your life on the road a whole lot easier. If you have used Reason, think of this as a universal Reason browser, where you will never have to even look at your laptop, much less your controller. You can have your sound sets ready, or load instruments from multiple plugins by just entering the type of sound. For example, if you type lead synth, KORE will load all lead synths on your computer, and you will be able to tweak them from the KORE controller itself. P.S. Logic Pro 7 does not support this product yet.
