Ambius 2: Systematik
Ambius 2: Systematik is a multi-layered morphing atmospheric synth engine with advanced arpeggiation, groove driven filters and tons of adaptive features. It's built on over 4.5 GB of organic content from instrumental, vocal and environmental sound sources.
Ambius 2 provides a broad collection of richly nuanced flavors to freely layer, blend and reshape into an endless range of percussive, tonal and textural elements. The powerful user interface combines flexible performance shaping controls with a wide pallet of special effects. And the built-in tempo-locking step-sequencer lets you drive not only the integrated filters and LFOs - but nearly any parameter in the GUI, all on the fly without missing a beat.
The foundation of Ambius 2 is in the layer building concept, which allows you to combine a range of tuned percussive attack samples with a broad variety of richly detailed sustaining elements. Each layer is equipped with independent parameters and can be swapped out on the fly through the GUI or with CC/host automation. We then take it a step farther with the Instrument Designer presets, with up to 6 independently evolving and dynamically responsive layers.
You can also transform Ambius 2 into a groove-driven monster, with our proprietary tempo-locked filtering and LFO based parameter automation system. A pair of 32-beat step-sequencer graphs let you freely draw resonance and cutoff values from one step to the next, with time divisions from whole notes to 128ths. Lowpass, Highpass, Bandpass and Vowel filter types are included.
Parameter changes are smoothed to prevent ugly zippering, yet you can still dial in ultra-tiny time-signature divisions and extreme filter settings. Whether you want it gnarly and screeching or warm and mellow, Ambius 2 does as your heart desires. You can also assign just about any parameter to each step sequencer table with the simple right-click/cmd-click learn function whenever that table is running. Or even skip the filter stage and simply use it for tempo-synced CC parameter control by choosing the “Thru” filter type. Other features include free/syncable tremolo oscillator, full EQ shaping, dozens of our custom convolution reverb impulse and of course, our "Uberpeggiator" advanced arpeggiation system.
It's at atmospheric synth at heart, but Ambius 2 allows you to blur the line between cutting leads, pulsing grooves and organic textures.

The Kontakt 5 presets in this library are designed for the full retail version of Native Instruments Kontakt 5.1 or later. Owners of Kontakt 4 (version 4.2.4) can still use the Kontakt 4 presets we've included in this library, but they lack some tempo-synching, time-stretching and other newer engine features. Kontakt is an industry-standard advanced virtual instrument / software sampler platform. Learn more about Kontakt by Clicking Here
Check out screenshots of our custom graphical user interface for Kontakt in the image gallery above. They provide a wide range of sound shaping parameter controls, each one totally automation-ready in your host environment or Kontakt's stand-alone mode.
This is a standard Kontakt open-format library, so the free Kontakt Player doesn't support this open-format Kontakt library. However, the sample directories are fully accessible to allow user customization, import and mapping into other wav-compatible software, sampler and synth formats.
The special Libraries tab doesn't support this open-format Kontakt library, but you can use the standard File browser tab, or import this library into the Kontakt database and Quickload tools for easy navigation, loading and organization.
