Native Instruments has released its' latest collaboration with musician, producer and inventor, Tim Exile. The release is entitled "FLESH" and it allows the user to create production elements like basslines and melodies using rhythmic material. The FLESH utilizes advanced algorithms to transform the source material thru re-synthesis. Like the previous Tim Exile & NI collaborations, "The Finger" & "The Mouth", FLESH is powered by Reaktor. Using the Reaktor engine, FLESH is able to create complex grooves and riffs out of the original sample. When asked about the creation of flesh, Exile had this to say: "The concept for FLESH came to me when touring with my custom looping, beatmaking, and improvising instrument that I built in REAKTOR," says Tim Exile. "I was missing a way to make harmonic and melodic material in a live, improvised scenario. I wanted something that would empower me to create expressive and dynamic sounds which fit in perfectly with whatever was going on at the time."

FLESH is compromised of 4 different engines, plus fx and modulation. The 4 engines each have a unique purpose that allow the producer to tailor the sound to their liking. FLESH can take your sample and turn it into a lead instrument or a sub bass for example. The FLESH features 4 global macro controls for live tweaking as well, which is ideal for live performance.

Perhaps the most unique detail about the FLESH is that it is the first developed by Native Instruments with the Kontrol S-Series keyboard series in mind. FLESH is optimized for NI's revolutionary keyboard series utilizing Light Guide to provide tight visual feedback, highlighting sounds and samples, and sequenced harmonies. Native Map® automaps parameters to the eight control knobs on the KOMPLETE KONTROL keyboards. Users can also save presets – including samples – and recall them in real time.

FLESH is available now for $99 and can be used with both REAKTOR 6 and REAKTOR 6 Player. Check out the full press release and links below for more information.
