The Rock and Pop Collection contains 108 pitched instruments plus 20 drum kits featuring a vast range of percussion sounds from Disco to World Music, of which you can play up to 32 at once. It includes all the sounds you'll need to write rock and pop music, from guitars, keyboards and drums to horns, strings, and even a Hammond B3 organ. The collection has been created in partnership with Sonic Implants and Native Instruments, who are among the world's leading sampling companies. It includes well-known instruments such as a Fender Stratocaster guitar and Rickenbacker bass; multiple samples are provided for many of the instruments, with different styles and tones so you can get just the sound you're looking for. The Rock and Pop Collection integrates seamlessly with Sibelius 4 via a special version of the acclaimed Kontakt sample player from Native Instruments. This gives you a range of adjustable parameters , including reverb, brightness, tuning, and other audio characteristics, so you can control the sound of each instrument individually. You can even export an audio file to create a CD of your music, or convert to an MP3 file.
