Lunaris 2, Unparalleled Pads
For those seeking the best pads instrument on NI Kontakt, Lunaris 2 is the top choice.
For years, Lunaris has been the industry standard for synth pads. Lunaris 2 continues this legacy, focusing solely on pads, and pads only. From analog pads to digital pads, string pads, cinematic pads, 80s-inspired pads, immersive ambient pads to everything in between.
Explore deep space pads that take you to the outer reaches of the cosmos, rewind back to the 80s for some technicolor fare, and lose yourself among crystalline wavetable textures that sparkle like starlight.
Lunaris 2 makes it easy to mix and match sound sources for instantly gratifying results. Sculpt and morph between the synth pads using the XY pad.
Whether you are a composer, electronic musician, or sound designer, Lunaris 2 packs enough to satisfy the most demanding of users, while providing an intuitive interface for those who prefer to just pick a preset and play.
Compared to its predecessor, version 2 improves and expands with sample drag and drop import, a freshly redesigned and larger interface, and the core sounds library is now brimming with over twice as many sound sources.
You will also find new effects, new features, and 530 presets (all pads!) created by fourteen world-class sound designers, including Venus Theory, Electric Himalaya, Echo Season, Bigtone, Stephan Baer, Michael Oakley, Yuli Yolo, Gahrn Audio, Lauge, Amphilium, Adam Pietruszko, S1gns of L1fe, State Azure and of course, Luftrum.
Users of the original Lunaris can upgrade to Lunaris 2 for $39. Lunaris 2 installs side-by-side with Lunaris as a separate product, therefore you can keep both instruments if you prefer.
Lunaris 2 is 13.7GB, made for and licensed to the free Kontakt Player, so you do not need the full version of Kontakt to use Lunaris 2. It will load without limitations in the free Kontakt Player or the full version of Kontakt v6.7.1 or later. No other software or purchase is required to play Lunaris 2. It can be loaded directly into any DAW, including Ableton Live, Logic, Reaper, Bitwig and Cubase.
Lunaris 2 is fully NKS compatible and is installed directly in Native Access. Just enter the serial key, click install, and Lunaris 2 will be downloaded and installed on your system.
