A Kontakt Plug-in or Standalone Application for the Mac and PC
The playback software that Serafine FX Tron uses is Sonic Reality’s “Infinite Player” expandable “library” module which resides inside either the (free) Kontakt Player 4 from Native Instruments or the (optional) full version of Kontakt 4. You simply authorize the Infinite Player with NI’s service center and from there on you are a simple drag and drop away from adding more Sonic Reality Infinite Player/Kontakt format sounds to your virtual instrument set up. Using Kontakt as its engine, the Infinite Player-based Serafine FX Tron works either stand alone for the Mac or PC or as an RTAS, VST or Audio Units plug-in for products such as ProTools, Cubase, Logic and other compatible DAW applications.
Each sound in Serafine FX Tron can instantly be called up and manipulated in many ways. There are four different modes of playback.
The default mode is to play the sound forward (“forward” mode) but you can also play any sound backwards simply by selecting the “reverse” mode. If you want to turn any effect into an unpredictable exciting harmonic synthesizer then you can choose “formant” mode and for experimenting with the engine’s convenient time stretch capabilities there is the final “Time Stretch” mode for fitting a sound into a scene or doing creative grain-style synthesis.
In this page there is also a “Sample Start” which is controlled by a midi keyboard’s modwheel (or midi CC knob). With this you can instantly dive into any point in the duration of the sound and then by hitting the “lock” button on (white) it makes that the new start point of the sound for that patch. You can also choose to have the pitch tracking on or off and even set the sound to trigger upon release of the midi note for advanced interactive performance effects.
The Amp Page
This page offers a variety of control over the amplitude of the sound from simple volume and pan to an ADSR sound shaping envelope to velocity/dynamic response from a midi controller.
The LFO Page
Bringing in fun experimental synth features such as LFO modulators is a welcome addition for any sound designer. A variety of different waveforms and parameters can modulate Amplitude, Panning, Pitch or Filter.
The FX Page
Serafine FX Tron has a wide variety of built-in DSP effects to instantly process sounds with and providing an infinite range of sonic results. Here in this section you have insert effects such as:
-Filters (Multi Mode)
-3 Band Parametric EQ
In the Auxiliary Sends and Output Mixer Inserts there are even more DSP effects on hand including a powerful Convolution Reverb which allows you to drag and drop an impulse response from a scene or field recording and match the ambience between the effect and the dialog or other sounds in the scene.
All of these features can be tweaked easily by any user and saved back with infinite variations without losing the original factory settings. Sounds can be layered together as “Multis” or they can be individual “Instruments” with unique sonic qualities that can make someone wonder how you got THAT sound. This is why the entire Sounds for Film category for the Infinite Player is a treasure chest of creative sources for any producer or composer.
