POWER ON DECK
With a single click, add swank and brazen boldness to epic elements with Collision FX instant sidechain power mods on the main display. Destruction, Shimmer and Depth, the first level of Collision’s custom crafted controls that give composers and designers instantaneous power over expression, timbre, res filter and low end dynamics.
Modify the sidechain input envelope with ADSR controls at hand and gain instant access to modify pitch and reverse waveform direction all from the main tab. Simply dial in the amount of effect to apply you’ll be creating vastly different sounds as you go.
Capturing a cinematic mixing style can be challenging particularly when faced with precisely scoring impacts, hits, sweeps, risers and transitions. Collision FX delivers allowing you to conveniently slot your Collision FX sounds and cinematics into your mix in real-time using the Sculpting Desk that includes ready onboard 4 band parametric EQ.
2-pole legacy filters for HP and LP provide frequency filtering and flexibility to clean up or heighten selected bands, all while the solid state modeled bus compressor helps you stay in control of extreme dynamics. Easily preview and compare all your effects changes with simple toggle controls.
For every parameter of every effect you’ll enjoy immediate and powerful access to envelope modulation, LFO modulation and step sequencing modulation (often used for mod. and tempo sync). The interactions and variability you create are almost limitless and alone, Collision FX multi assignable modulation schemes could by themselves keep you busy in “ultra-creative mode” for hours and hours.
Totally proprietary linear envelope generators deliver precise control over how effect parameters interact with samples. The custom LFO, also assignable to any effect parameter, features multiple wave shapes including random, and inversion (polarity). For the adventurous, Step Sequencer modulation assigned to multiple effect parameters creates interactions unique, unpredictable and of epic cinematic proportion.
DIMENSIONS OF SPACE
Quickly add spatial dimension, ambience and sonic secret sauce to your creations with custom convolution impulse response reverbs, 190 of them! These exceptional reverbs take you on a journey of dimensions beyond basic auditoriums and rooms, the convolution reverbs contained in Collision FX are powerful for creating spatial and ambient overtones with Collision’s unique sample bank. Every reverb effect is precisely controlled by modifying standard early reflection and late reflection parameters.
It’s one of our favorite approaches to getting a little extra… “Un gros coup de cul à la fin,” (a kick in the arse) pardon our French. Try building your sounds and cinematic elements only to add the convolution reverbs at the last step. You won’t be disappointed as Collision FX comes through with the perfect compliment to your audio arsenal.
COLLISION FX – AN NKS-READY PLUGIN
What is NKS?
Now you can eliminate the hassle and tedious trouble of configuring control surfaces. With Collision FX and NKS-ready devices, you gain instant expression and real time control over parameters that bring a custom experience to every performance.
Instantly Making Music
Instantly selecting Collision FX software presets and shaping sounds directly from the surface of your favorite NKS-ready hardware accelerates your creativity and speeds your production.
Empowering Music Makers
Because Collision FX is an NKS-ready plug-in, it’s set up to make use of the production empowering Smart Play features in the KOMPLETE KONTROL and MASCHINE software – including touch strips, scale mapping, chord sets, and the powerful arpeggiator. Collision FX and NKS enable you to perform with your KOMPLETE and MASCHINE hardware like never before.
At Sound Yeti, we use Native Instruments own S-series keyboards (S-61) and MASCHINE with KOMPLETE KONTROL software in our everyday production sessions. No question that NKS-ready plugins offer a clear advantage to those that are seeking to remove technical barriers to creativity and real-time performance dynamics.
Intuitive, Seamless Interaction
Native Kontrol Standard (NKS) is an extended plug-in format used by leading virtual instrument developers like Sound Yeti. Developed by Native Instruments, NKS enables intuitive, seamless interaction between plug-in instruments and KOMPLETE KONTROL S-Series keyboards and MASCHINE hardware. No one knows a software instrument’s most important parameters better than the instrument’s designers.
Manufacturers using the NKS standard carefully design and integrate the mappings, tags, and performance of their instruments control surfaces to react with the feel of a custom instrument via NKS – bringing you better control, expression, and experience with your favorite NKS-ready software instruments.
