Berlin, November 3rd, 2010 – Native Instruments today introduced THE
MOUTH, a unique performance instrument and sound processor designed by
electronic artist and musical innovator Tim Exile. Based on powerful
REAKTOR technology, THE MOUTH generates intriguing melodies and
harmonies from any audio signal on the fly, easily turning vocals, drum
loops and other sources into rich electronic textures and highly
original sonic mayhem.

 THE MOUTH is the second instrument collaboration between Native
Instruments and Tim Exile, following the notorious keyboard-controlled
effects processor THE FINGER, and originating from the same custom
REAKTOR-based live setup that is at the center of Tim Exile's
boundary-breaking stage performances. Equipped with automatic pitch
detection and intuitive harmonizing controls, THE MOUTH provides an
unlimited array of expressive and inspirational synthesizer, vocoder and
talk box-style sounds and effects with a distinctive electronic
character, offering new and original ways to enrich an audio signal or
even turn it into something entirely different and unpredictable.

THE MOUTH offers separate "Pitch" and "Beats" modes for tonal processing
of all kinds of audio material, enabling anything from auto-tuning
effects to unexpected chord structures and arpeggiated melodies. For
flexible harmonization, musical scales can be either preselected or
triggered in real time from a MIDI keyboard. The input signal can be
seamlessly mixed and replaced with the output from separate "Synth",
"Bass" and "Vocoder" sections, complemented by an additional "FX" path.
Each generator section offers a convenient preset matrix with additional
editing options, while eight global performance controls make it easy to
tweak the overall sound in a spontaneous and intuitive way.

THE MOUTH is based on the latest REAKTOR platform, and can be used with
the free REAKTOR PLAYER and in the full REAKTOR 5.5 software, both as a
standalone processor and as a plug-within a DAW or music sequencer.

THE MOUTH is available for download purchase in the NI Online Shop for
$79 / 69 EUR.
