Whoosh: A new Sound Effects Instrument for Reaktor

The good people at MeltedSounds.com have been in contact to announce their latest instrument designed for Reaktor. Whoosh can create some very cool sound effects from whistling winds to granular fx.  

Whoosh is a true sound design instrument and enables you to create breath taking whoosh and pass-by effects. It is possible to precisely design sounds varying from whistling wind whooshes to air ripping engine pass-bys or completely over the top granular sci-fi effects.

The included doppler effects engine was designed from ground up to physical model the acoustic phenomena of an object that approaches, passes, and recedes from an observer. The individual playback engines, the source mixer and doppler engine can be manipulated in synchronized connection to each other. This makes it possible to playback the desired sound effect at different durations while remaining everything in perfect sync.

Whoosh comes with an extensive onboard sample library licensed from leading sound effect recordists. It includes categories like wind, fire, metal, water, engine and explosion effects. 

Whoosh is built for Native Instruments Reaktor 5.8 or later - (Player not supported).
