Packed with the potential to create sounds that range from “delicately emotive” to “ominously intense”.

Pristine recordings of woodwinds, choir, percussion, guitars and other acoustic instruments make up the multi-sampled material that sits at the heart of Sequis. When layered together, this creates dynamic and complex textures that can easily drive a key onscreen moment or serve as a backdrop for other instruments to sit atop.
NI and Orchestral Tools recorded each instrument with a plethora of articulations – from trills and flutters to ricochets and echoes – that work together with the onboard sequencer to form interesting musical ideas.
The 16-step multi-track sequencer has a simple interface but offers a broad set of controls that let you add swing, triplet patterns, accents and more. NI combines this with built-in effects – including reverb, filter and delay – to help you quickly conjure up ideas that sound close to finished.
To get you started quickly, Sequis includes 200 presets that show off its range – from “delicately emotive” to “ominously intense” – right out the box.
Sequis follows last year’s release of Arkhis sample library for Kontakt, a pack focused on creating “screen-ready” atmospheric scores through a rich variety of sampled acoustic instruments.
An introductory promotion for Sequis prices the instrument at $149 (usually $199) and there’s also a bundle deal that includes Arkhis for $249 (usually $299).
