Formation is a unique Kontakt instrument packed with over 250 amazing nki patches which include pads, atmospheres, synths and sfx with custom GUI controls and a state-of-art fully equipped arpeggiator. It comes with a 2.5 GB library of 24bit samples.
Formation is a hybrid SynthROMpler, allowing you to play either the original sampled sounds or to use them as the source for whole new synthesised and modulated sounds.
Formation adds a second processed voice to each instrument allowing you to manipulate the formant data in the voice to generate additional audio, like you would to create new sounds using oscillators in a synth, except Formant uses the sampled data from the instrument instead of an oscillator.
Added to this you can apply 4 different effects to the combined sound, and these four slots can contain any of a huge range of effects including filters, EQs, Chorus, Flanger, Convolution Reverbs and distortions. Next is the ability to send different amounts of each individual sound to 4 different Send effects and again you select from a range of different effects in each case. This adds yet more creative options to your final sound. There is also a huge amount of modulation options and the ability to add gating effects too.
Finally, there is the ARP. Like no other arpeggiator around the Formation ARP is powerful, original and quickly creates unique and compelling patterns like no other product.

Info & Quotes
"My favorite tool is the arpeggiator, which can add some rhythm and groove to your sounds. What separates this arpeggiator from others is that you have the ability to generate different patterns for different notes of a chord. In a three-note chord, for example, each note can have its own independent pattern. If you’re not comfortable or experienced using an arpeggiator, do not despair. Formation has a nice assortment of preset patterns, which can get you started. - DJ Times
