Native Instruments publishes Kore 2

Kore functions as a controller for the VST and Audio Unit plug-ins and can be used as a standalone application or as a plug-in in combination with any compatible sequencer. Kore also ships with a hardware controller that includes a USB 2.0 or audio / MIDI interface.

Among the changes to the new system, Kore 2 incorporates a sound library based on NI’s onboard instrument engines.

The new sound library includes 500 specially designed, studio-quality KoreSounds, each offering multiple sound variations, covering all relevant musical styles and genres. The built-in engines are Absynth, FM8, Guitar Rig, Kontak, Massive, and Reaktor.

Kore 2 is priced at $ 559.
