PRODUCT INFO

 

REVOLUTION-CRE8 LITE is a full featured Reversing Virtual Instrument that utilizes 2 layers of sample synthesis making it one of the most unique and capable reversing sample library instruments available anywhere. REVOLUTION-CRE8 LITE works in stand-alone mode as well as all plugin formats across Mac and PC via the free Steinberg HALion Sonic SE Player. There are no restrictions and it will never time out. It is powered by our CRE8 Engine that aims to be simple, intuitive and yet powerful and capable. We want everyone to be able to experience what our instruments are capable of without demo restrictions.  

KEY FEATURES:

 

  • DUAL LAYER REVERSING SAMPLE ENGINE.

  • PHRASE LOOPING - Play any phrase with a length as short as a 8th note or as long as 8 Beats and it will loop in reverse automatically.

  • NOTE VALUE KEY SWITCHING - Reversing Layers 1 and 2 can have their note values key switched independently in real-time.  For example Layer 1 can be set to a Whole note while Layer 2 can be set to Half or Quarter notes creating complex and interesting reverse poly rhythms.

The instruments are: Acoustic Guitar 12 String and Electric Piano 2.
