When assembling the factory sound library for Collective, we turned to one of the most acclaimed artisans in the field of sample capture and voicing – Klaus Peter Rausch. Over the past 3 decades, Klaus has worked with numerous industry titans including Korg, Alesis, Clavia, Yamaha, and many more. All the while amassing a vast array of instrument samples of the highest quality specifically for use in sample playback engines. Working closely with the Tracktion VI development team, one of the largest assortments of Klaus’s instruments was meticulously reviewed, edited, and voiced to provide a diverse sonic playground for you to explore.
Collective is designed to be much more than just a high-quality sample playback engine. It is also a deeply capable synthesis platform allowing for a wide array of electronic sounds to be generated with ease. It is the combination of these capabilities that allow the sound design team – and indeed yourselves – to create ultra hi-def sounds. Layering subtle synthesis textures under real samples can produce vibrant results that mimic real-world spaces and if desired, enhance them. When exploring the electronic capabilities of the synthesis engine, you will discover a comprehensive array of features including virtual analog, 4 operator FM, filters, LFOs, envelopes, and a creative selection of FX. Collective packs a world of sounds into a single, easy-to-use, ever-expanding premium virtual instrument.

In a world full of VI’s filled with mediocre sounds touting thousands of presets, Collective is designed to be different. Over 600 factory sounds have been meticulously crafted to provide a diverse array of both real-world instruments and electronica.
