Maleventum 2 is an incredible, unique Kontakt Instrument inspired by ethnic flutes from ancient native American pre-Hispanic cultures. Following the popularly acclaimed Maleventum 1 based on Viking war horns, we’ve collaborated with Nomada Ceramica, a collective of musicians and instrument makers from Argentina, committed to faithfully reproduce flutes from the Aztec, Maya and Incas civilizations of over 3000 years ago.

We’ve recorded a staggering amount of original Aztec flutes and whistles, double flutes, rare panflutes (Antara Nazca), death whistles and statuettes (Estatuillas), Tlapitzali (a typical Andine instrument), didgeridoos, war trumpets (known as ‘Trompeta Moche’, a tiger-headed instrument with a peculiar sound), and a one of a kind whistle called Vasija Silbadora (‘Whispering Vessel’), which uses an hydraulic system made of two vessels to create an eerie, evocative, creature-esque call.

All these instruments are literally unique pieces based on the archeological finds in Quimivil, a region in Argentina which hosts one of the most significant sites of the old Incas civilization. The collection also includes samples from Kaval, a shepherd flute typical of Romania and Turkey, with an unique sounds that fits the epic genre very well.

The result of this massive work of sampling is a collection of flute phrases, animal-esque flute wailings, dissonant flute trills, hi pitched whistle screams, hunt calls, playable legato flute instruments, textures and pads and much more.

Each sound and instrument contained in Maleventum 2 instantly evokes scenes of forgotten ages, aboriginal armies and warriors, arcane shamanic rituals, epic battles, uncontaminated landscapes, and legendary spirits evoked by mystical cults.

Maleventum 2 is for TV, film, games composers and sound designers looking for unique, carefully crafted sounds to enrich their compositions. It fits particularly well the epic genre, with specific regard to fantasy and dark age movies. It will be a very useful tool to provide plenty of inspiration for horror and thriller composers as to producers of dark electronic music and ambient.

Maleventum 2 is NOT an expansion of Maleventum 1. It’s a brand new library based on totally different sounds and instruments, which can be used independently from Maleventum 1. Please have a look at the video demonstrations at the bottom.

20 KONTAKT INSTRUMENTS: PHRASES, SOUND FX AND LEGATO FLUTE INSTRUMENTS
Maleventum 2 features a total of 20 Kontakt instruments: they’re organised in 2 different kind of .nki with different look and functionalities.

16 MPE compatible Kontakt instruments based on flute phrases and one-shot SFX, which allow you to turn any sound in a playable pad or texture. There are over 250 snapshots and 85 MPE Multis, where you can combine the phrases samples with pads and textures. If you own a Roli Seaboard, Maleventum 2 has been scripted to create evolving, rich hybrid phrases and pads by blending the layers and simultaneously controlling a vast amount of parameters at your fingertips. Maleventum 2 can be also used in standard MIDI and it’s compatible with any MIDI controller.

The 16 phrases and sfx instruments include ethereal cinematic flute phrases, Aztec panflutes and whistles, aboriginal hunt calls, spiritual flute phrases, flute screams and dissonant stabs, death whistles and didgeridoo droning backgrounds. By using the looping function (independent for each sample) you can turn any phrases or SFX in an evocative playable instrument by looping the tonal regions within each phrase.

4 playable legato instruments of Antara Nazca (PanFlute), Flauta Globular (Shell Flute), Tlapitzali (Incas Flute) and Kaval (Romanian/Turkish overtone flute), including a legato ornament functionality (for Tplapitzali Flute and Kaval flute), an additional layer of playable textures and a playable set of background droning sounds.

MPE COMPATIBLE (PHRASES AND SFX INSTRUMENTS)
MPE is the acronym of MIDI Polyphonic Expression. It is a specific MIDI technology which enables multidimensional instruments (for example Roli Seaboard or Haken Continuum) to independently control multiple sound shaping parameter for each individual note.

Maleventum 2 supports MPE: you can easily MIDI map Volume, Low/High Pass Filter, Sample Start and Loop Length in the 16 phrases and SFX instruments by using the Mapping screen. All of these parameters can be controlled per note, allowing you to create custom patches of rich, evolving end expressive pads and melodies from over 290 phrases and SFX , 67 textures, 85 MPE Multis and 250+ Snapshots. To discover more about the MPE implementation of Maleventum 2, please consult our free manual.

Maleventum 2 is compatible with any MIDI controller, you don’t necessarily need an MPE-compatible one and you can map the aforementioned parameters to the MIDI CCs of your controller.

TRANSFORM PHRASES AND SFX IN PLAYABLE INSTRUMENTS
The 16 phrases and SFX instruments in Maleventum 2 feature two functionalities called ‘Extend’ and ‘Loop’. With ‘Extend’, you can select a sample and extend its range to 4 octaves on the virtual keyboard, with ‘Loop’ you can loop the tonal region within the sample and transform it in a long, sustained playable element. ‘Loop’ can be turned on/off and individually set for each phrase or SFX sample. Moreover, by using the Mapping Screen, it’s possible to easily control the offset and loop length for a given sample, so to introduce continue variations and avoid the ‘static’ feeling that might result when the same sample is played chromatically along the keyboard.

In the phrases and SFX modules, you have independent control of Volume , Pitch, Volume Envelope , Filters and Loop for every individual sample.

Moreover, with the useful Global Tuning function you tune ALL the samples to the same root key with just one knob, which turns very useful for more minimalist and aggressive compositions such as trailer music.

PLAYABLE LEGATO FLUTE INSTRUMENTS
Maleventum 2 also features 4 playable legato instruments, 3 of which based on meticulously sampled original Native American flutes and another one on Kaval, an overtone flute peculiar of the shepherd tradition of Romania, Moldavia and Turkey. They are meant as realistic ‘translations’ of these unique and rare instruments in the digital domain, which capture some peculiarities of the iconic Native American sound and Epic genre.

By using the ‘Ornaments’ button, you can introduce slight variations within the legato phrases to further increase the realism and detail of these instruments.

The 4 legato instruments also allow to add a further layer of organic tonal textures, which have been obtained with a number of sound design techniques applied to the original sounds. This can open interesting possibilities of sculpting the sound in a variety of ways, experimenting interesting blends, and more generally adding a more modern character to these instruments.

Expect these instruments to sound raw and primal!
The legato instruments do not feature MPE.
