Native Instruments Thrill - 1.1 - a performance instrument for playing spine-chilling atmospheres, clusters, and hybrid textures.

  • Score in realtime with smart XY tension control
  • 1,038 productionready orchestral and hybrid sound sources
  • Design clusters with unparalleled depth

THRILL is a performance instrument for playing spine-chilling atmospheres, clusters, and hybrid textures.


An indispensable scoring tool for big-screen soundtracks, game scores, sound installations, or live theater productions, THRILL’s all-original content features orchestral recordings and hybrid sound-design based on ambiences, custom-built instruments, voices, pitched metal, synthesized drones, and more. Two main sound types – atmospheres and tone clusters – are morphed and modulated with hands-on control, creating rich intricate layers that evolve and increase in intensity.


Create your own sound sets by combining 1,038 source sounds with X-Y-controlled modulation effects, different blend modes, custom clusters, or effect convolution. Personalize every detail manually or use the randomize feature. Then perform and modulate your sounds and experience a completely new way to design and play cinematic textures and builds.


THRILL’s cluster designer offers a level of depth never before available in a virtual instrument. There are 145+ diverse and editable cluster voicing presets. Clusters can be built from scratch, with up to eight voices at definable intervals, fine-tune control, pan, and volume. Use the X-Y pad to build your cluster in real-time and choose from three dynamic modes – Glide, Add-on, and Parallel.


THRILL’s X-Y control offers unparalleled fusion of sound design and performance. X intelligently crossfades the selected sounds while Y builds the energy and anxiety, as the sources and assigned parameters move through layers of tension. THRILL is also ideal for trackpad or tablet control, for a real-time scoring experience like no other and an unprecedented level of sound-to-video interaction.

With authentic orchestral and cinematic sounds and an unrivalled performance system, THRILL offers hands-on creativity, and a fast workflow, customization options, and ease-of-use.
