Native Instruments Komplete 10 – Video Tutorial Week w/ Matt Cellitti: Ep 5. Kontour Tutorial

“Kontour is a fantastic addition to the Komplete library. It was designed by Native Instruments’ founder and creator of Reaktor, Stephan Schmitt.

The synthesis architecture of Kontour revolves around three main concepts: phase modulation, wave-shaping, and feedback. Phase Modulation is very similar to Frequency Modulation (i.e. FM synthesis) and has the effect of distorting the phase of the waveform, thereby changing its shape and harmonic content.

This synthesis style was famously integrated into the classic Casio CZ-series synthesizers and their Phase Distortion technology.

Overall, its a very useful synth capable of getting a wide range of sounds. Its easy to create your own sounds with, but also incredibly deep for expert sound designers too.” -Matt Cellitti

Stay tuned all week for Komplete Week, a different tutorial video each day dedicated to Native Instruments Komplete 10.
