Cinematique Instruments Rytmik KONTAKT FiXEDRytmik is an inspiring beat engine that delivers a very rich and unique collection of sounds and beats for massive cinematic percussion, cue scoring, electro, hip hop or industrial. It is a great tool for instant rhythmic inspiration which provides endless flexibility to find a unique language for the music you’re writing.
Rytmik is fed by over 200 drum and FX sounds that we have carefully collected and specially created. Special attention was paid to massive booms and organic ensemble as well as to urban and unique sounds used for chasing cue or as ghost beats and finally to long FX sounds for creating wide and deep textures.
WHAT IS RYTMIK?
Rytmik is an inspiring beat engine that delivers a very rich and unique collection of sounds and beats for massive cinematic percussion, cue scoring, electro, hip hop or industrial.
Technically speaking, Rytmik is a 32-step sequencer with up to 24 individual tracks, which gives you great flexibility and variation simply because of this large number of tracks. The sequencer is fed by over 200 drum and FX sounds that we have carefully collected and specially created. We have paid special attention to the massive booms and hits that are the result of multiple layering of many individual percussion sounds – these sounds are actually rather often ensemble hits. But we also concentrated on creating urban and unique sounds that can be used for chasing cue or as ghost beats for music productions. And finally, we have taken care of long FX sounds that offer the possibility to create wide and deep textures.It doesn’t take much imagination to imagine what would come out when mixing all these sounds.
RECORD YOUR BEAT
A special and so far unique feature of this sequencer is the possibilty of recording notes! Press play, then record and you hear a click. Now Rytmik records everything you play. This is a completely new approach to software beat machines and produces completely different results than if you have to enter everything by mouse – which is also possible!
As said, Rytmik does not fire audio files or loops. Rytmik is based on a sequencer that plays every single beat in real time. This “open system” of a sequencer gives you access to your beat at any time, both in the changes of the individual beats and in the tempo and expression of it. There are 2 ways to play the beat. Either you press the play button or you play C4. But you are also free to play individual tracks separately in your own combinations. But you can also just play with single sounds live to beat. This is a great way to play rhythm with many variations
Finally the real-time shape option, already known from Marble, gives the beat infinite flexibility to edit the beat in real-time to your music.
But if you don’t want to program your own beat and want Rytmik to suggest a suitable beat for you, with its large number of beats Rytmik always provides enough material for you, so that you don’t have to go to the mixer or sequencer. And to make sure that you always find the right sound or beat, we have built in many suitable search filters, so you can quickly find exactly what you have in mind.
As we said, by trying out this huge amount of beats, Rytmik is a great tool for instant rhythmic inspiration to find a unique language for the music you write.
THIS IS WHAT YOU GET
You get 350 instant beats divided in 50 main themes, 65 production beats, 55 chasing cues, 145 score patterns and 45 textures from electro/hip hop to scoring/cinematic and industrial. By using the 3 selection filter ‘Style’, ‘Energy’ and ‘Color you can easily narrow down your result.
You get massive booms and percussion ensemble hits, but also regular bass drum, toms, snares, cymbals and ethnic drums as well as urban and electronic sounds and unique fx slices.
The combination of organic and electronic sounds provides endless flexibility to find a unique language for the music you’re writing.
No Audio Loops
All beats are real-time generated by a 32 step sequencer with up to 24 tracks. This gives you access to your beat at any time, both in the changes of the individual beats and in the tempo and expression of it.
That is unique – never heard of live recording into Kontakt. Sying so, you can create or edit/ add your beat by pressing a recording button! Surely you can traditionally draw your notes into the grid.
Beat Fragments Playing
That is unique – To create the greatest possible variation, it is also possible to play all parts of each beat individually as your “own” beat.
You are able to shift either the entire beat or individual tracks forward or backward.
Rytmik plays its beat by pressing a key or a play button. You can also play individual tracks/ fragments of the whole beat separately – an excellent feature.
Each track can be displayed in big-size format with lots of options.
You get the option to fill completely a single group (5-7 tracks) directly with sounds that are arranged according to a special themes like ‘Bass Drums’, ‘Accoustics’, ‘Low End’, ‘Hits’ or ‘Tonal’ etc.
Real time sound shaping
That is unique! Free programmable behaviour of lots of fx paramters such as velocity, volume, reverb send, LoFi, distortion and low or high pass filters – all controlled by free assignable controller. And guess what? This works in real- time.
You can load or save your own beats on external destinations.
WHAT THE OTHERS SAY?
Jacob Shea (Planet Earth): Rytmik is an incredibly deep and powerful percussion playground. Loaded up with beautifully sampled drums from every genre, you can generate complex and innovative patches within minutes. If that wasn’t enough, the “Shape” page gives you further control over the entire sound of the percussive arsenal. It’s truly one of a kind!!”
Serj Tankian (System of a Down): This is really a very rich and unique collection of sounds for electro/hip hop/scoring/industrial etc. Rytmik is a really quite a diverse Kontakt drum library with cinematic percussion, heavy layered beats and all kinds of useful sounds for scoring. I really love how fast you can switch between the presets too. Good work!! I love it
Theodore Shapiro (Mitty, Ghostbusters): Rytmik is a beautifully programmed and inspiring beat creation library. The combination of organic and electronic sounds provides endless flexibility to find a unique language for the music you’re writing.
Another wonderful library from the good folks at Cinematique!
David Newman (Ice Age): This is really awesome. Completely original sounds and ways to manipulate it. It’s FANTASTIC!!!!
