    How do I install TERRASTRATE?

    When you purchase TERRASTRATE, you'll receive a serial number via email. To install, you'll need Kontakt Player and Native Access, both available for free from Native Instruments. You may also use the full version of Kontakt. Once those applications are installed, enter your serial number into Native Access to download and install TERRASTRATE. This process ensures a smooth setup so you can start using TERRASTRATE without delay.

    I received an error message while installing TERRASTRATE in Native Access.

    1. Installation Failed (Mac):

    What kind of preset and sounds are included with TERRASTRATE?

    TERRASTRATE comes equipped with a rich array of sounds designed to push the boundaries of cinematic sound design. The library features categories such as Synth Pads, Organic Pads, Complex Textures, Soundscapes, and more, each crafted to provide versatility and innovation. Particularly unique are the sweeps, bends, and signature gestures, which allow for groundbreaking manipulation of organic sounds, creating textures and movements that have never been heard before. For a closer look at these unique features, check out our preset preview video, where we showcase highlights from each category, including Synth Pads, Organic Pads, Complex Textures, and more, demonstrating TERRASTRATE's full potential in creating dynamic and unique audio experiences.

    What tools does TERRASTRATE offer for tweaking and crafting sounds?

    TERRASTRATE is equipped with extensive sound design tools across three specialized pages.

    The Sample/Grain Page allows detailed manipulation of samples and grains for nuanced textural control. The Mod/Matrix Page provides a robust modulation matrix and multiple modulators for dynamic parameter automation. Lastly, the FX Controls Page offers comprehensive, selectable effects in a fixed signal chain, including delays and reverbs, to refine and enhance the sonic characteristics of your creations.

    TERRASTRATE also includes automapped sample drag-and-drop, enhancing usability by allowing users to easily manipulate and transform any wave file. This functionality ensures seamless integration of your own samples into TERRASTRATE, providing a fluid and intuitive experience for customizing and creating new sounds within the instrument.

    This level of control ensures that every composer and producer can both intuitively tweak existing sounds and build entirely new creations tailored to their projects.

    How does TERRASTRATE utilize granular synthesis?

    TERRASTRATE utilizes granular synthesis by breaking audio into small grains, which can be intricately manipulated for dynamic sound design. The mod wheel can dynamically control gestures, bends, and textures, making performances expressive. The bounds of granular can be stretched to allows for the tempo-syncing of grain playback or "density", duration or "size", and grain fade-ins/outs, transforming TERRASTRATE into a versatile pulse maker.

    Does TERRASTRATE work with any digital audio workstation (DAW)?

    Yes, TERRASTRATE can be integrated with any digital audio workstation (DAW) that supports VST, AU, or AAX plugins since it operates within the Kontakt Player. This compatibility allows TERRASTRATE to function seamlessly in DAWs like Ableton Live, Logic Pro, FL Studio, Cubase, Pro Tools, GarageBand, Reaper, and Studio One. For users without a DAW, TERRASTRATE also works in the standalone version of Kontakt Player, enabling direct performance from your system. This flexibility ensures TERRASTRATE can adapt to various music production environments, enhancing its usability across different creative workflows.

    How can I optimize TERRASTRATE to run more efficiently?

    Granular synthesis is resource-intensive. If you're experiencing performance issues with TERRASTRATE, here are a few tips to optimize its operation:

    1. Manage Samples: To free up RAM, use Kontakt's sample purge feature to unload unused samples from TERRASTRATE. This can be done from the 'Purge' option in the Kontakt interface.
    2. Adjust Effects: Reduce CPU usage by minimizing the use of delay and modulation. Turn off delay by setting the delay knob to zero and disable modulation slots if they are not in use.
    3. Monitor Voice Count: Granular synthesis can increase voice count, which may spike CPU usage. Keep an eye on the voice count in the Kontakt browser. You can reduce grain density to lower overlapping note counts, thus conserving CPU resources.
    4. Limit Polyphony: To further decrease CPU load, adjust the maximum number of voices allowed in Kontakt's settings to limit the number of simultaneous notes.

    These adjustments should help make TERRASTRATE run more smoothly on your system.
