Kinetic is a PC program especially designed to create Electronica, Hip Hop and Dance music. Kinetic combines a simple, intuitive click-and-groove sequencer interface with genuine Roland® instrument sounds--sounds alone worth ten times Kinetic's $79.95 MSRP. Electronic music beat creation is now accessible to everyone, regardless of musical experience do to the hundreds of professionally recorded patterns that come with it.
I liked the simple way you start composing a song. I would first select an instrument or group of instruments, like a Roland TR-909 kick or TR-808 Side stick, and then a style of music from hundreds of music patterns. The ACID format loops in the Content Browser will inspire you to get busy.
There are five basic building blocks in Kinetic: Patterns made up of MIDI notes or audio called Groove Clips--you can tweak these sounds with the on-board effects processor; Patch is a synth sound with effects--there are over 400 different sounds; a Part represents a patch plus pattern combination and Parts can be MIDI or audio that you place anywhere you want in the song; Grooves are 16 parts that play together but you can mute or solo part(s) and add empty space; and Songs, which can contain up to 64 grooves arrange by you in the Song Arranger window.
Add audio recording to your tune by connecting Kinetic to Cakewalk Home Studio, SONAR or any other Rewire host application. For more information visit www.cakewalk.com; or call 888-CAKEWALK.
