BOCS (Boards Of Canada Synthesis) is a Kontakt sample pack consisting of ten pads inspired by the electronic duo Boards of Canada. It’s refreshingly different compared to previous efforts from various sample packs and vst synths.

The reason why?

These sounds have been created via the methods used by the group themselves. Vintage analog synths, 4-tracks, valve amps even VHS recorders were used to create a sample bank more authentic than anything we’ve heard before.

These sounds have a dirty, dusty, and dream like quality just like that elusive Boards of Canada sound. Weighing in at just under 1 gig you can be guaranteed a truly professional sound to use for your next stunning track.

BOCS Volume 1 Sample pack requires the fully working version of Kontakt 5 to work. The purchased download consists of 10 Kontakt NKI files.

August 30, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

embertone_changerhu

Embertone has launched Chang Erhu, a deep sampled erhu instrument for Native Instruments Kontakt.

The erhu is a two-stringed, bowed musical instrument. It may also be called a “southern fiddle”, and sometimes known in the Western world as the “Chinese violin” or a “Chinese two-stringed fiddle”. It is used as a solo instrument as well as in small ensembles and large orchestras. It is the most popular of the huqin family of traditional bowed string instruments used by various ethnic groups of China. A very versatile instrument, the erhu is used in both traditional and contemporary music arrangements, such as in pop, rock, jazz, etc.

Our Erhu can create profoundly expressive and beautiful music, and it’s also sooooo much fun to play. Its flexibility and out-of-the-box sound is undeniable! …and we don’t think there’s a virtual erhu out there to match it!


Chang Erhu features

  • True legato programming with 2x true round robin.
  • Bow Change, Slurs, Portamentos.
  • Custom Kontakt scripting by Andreas Lemke.
  • Control over vibrato speed and intensity.
  • 3200+ recorded samples.

NanoMod 8-bit – free instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt

August 8, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

rr_nanomod8bit_thumb

Rhythmic Robot has launched NanoMod 8-bit, a free instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

NanoMod 8-bit is a simple but versatile Kontakt synthesiser based on vintage 8-bit polysynths, featuring an “intelligent” interface that allows the user to adjust multiple parameters with single controls. It is offered as part of the KVR Developers’ Challenge 2014.

NanoMod 8-bit brings the simplicity of Rhythmic Robot’s NanoMod interface to bear on the crusty, gritty, aliased sounds of classic 8-bit synthesisers of the early to mid 80s. Using source waves taken from vintage Ensoniq hardware and a front-end incorporating convolved Wasp and MS20 filters, this NanoMod is aimed squarely at big, powerful polysynth sounds – everything from warm and evolving pads to screaming leads.

The library is a free download, released as an entry to the KVR Developer Challenge 2014.

OSA (Old School Arps) for Kontakt

June 24, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

726334_orig

CL-Projects releases OSA (Old School Arps) for Kontakt 5.1 and higher.

Here’s what they say: “Imagine yourself in a cellar, filled with vintage synthesizers and analog sequencers, flashing lights, knobs and faders everywhere, playing Berlin School electronic music. If you don’t have any of that equipment to your disposal, this library is the next best thing. It tries to bring some of that sound and feeling to your home and studio by supplying vintage arpeggio patches.”

The Berlin School electronic genre of music was first made in Berlin in the 1970s, hence the name, by electronic music artists like Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schulze and Ashra. Typical for this type of music are the evolving, atmospheric and hypnotic layered sequencer textures. The sound consists basically of ambient elements combined with short, repeating sequenced runs of notes, which gives the music a rhythmic element.

OSA is a Kontakt 5 library aimed at this genre of electronic music from the 1970s and 1980s and consists of vintage arpeggios, and a few modern ones too. Inspired by musicians like Jean Michel Jarre, Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schulze, Michael Hoenig and countless others.

Library Features:

  • For Kontakt 5.1 and higher (Full version).
  • 24-bit 44.100 kHz ncw samples.
  • 50 different waveforms per oscillator.
  • 24 samples per patch, 12 per oscillator (76 notes).
  • Velocity and Aftertouch responsive.
  • 6 folders containing a total of 151 patches.
  • Patches divided into Straight, Triplets and One Shot (separate folders).
  • 4 Effects: Reverb, Delay, Chorus & Phaser.
  • Time and Speed parameters sync to Host tempo (Delay, Chorus and Phaser).
  • All parameters on 1 page.

Price: £19.99.
