Tonehammer Waterphone KONTAKT DVDR-DYNAMiCS
Tonehammer Waterphone KONTAKT DVDR-DYNAMiCS
We decided to sample this instrument deeper and more creatively then ever before in the history of samples. The best current water phone libraries contains approx. 180-200 samples, which is less then 1/15 of the Tonehammer Waterphone, which contains a mighty 2,903 samples recorded with a variety of bows, a huge set of mallets, metal devices, hands and other contraptions. 

The library also contains a variety of more experimental patches, including boiled water at four different temperature levels, hydrophone recordings (underwater microphones in the waterphone), magnets on waterphone tines and filling waterphone with metal nails and other goodies. The sample library simply covers all thinkable and unthinkable type of articulations and we can proudly state we sampled the living soul out of the waterphone. All playable mallet programs contains our standard 10 velocity layer - 10 round robin for maximum playability. In addition Waterphone contains a bonus set of waterphone ambiences (note: Kontakt 3 only) made by Steven Tavaglione (Instrumentalist and Sound Designer; Wall-E, American Beauty, CSI, Supernatural and 100s other movies/shows/games).

Tonehammer Anti Drum Vol.2 KONTAKT DVDR-SUNiSO Tonehammer Anti Drum Vol.2 KONTAKT DVDR-SUNiSO
AntiDrum 2 is a follow-up to our popular Anti-Drum I. This time we wanted to push the bar even further into the realm of abstract percussion and musical exploration. This library is the ideal creative toolbox for experimental sound and music design. The library contains 3866 samples and 71 different instrument patches that each represent a unique texture. The library contains a variety of instruments recorded in one of our signature halls, including boom whackers, PVC pipe percussion ensemble to flower vases, glasses, rainsticks, soda bottles. The library also contains a variety of even more unconventional instruments ranging from human beats through a cellphone (10 round robin and 10 velocity layers), stop watches and a compressive patch made from a severe food poisoning that we call: "the human trumpet".

Tonehammer Alien Drum Vol.1 KONTAKT DVDR-DYNAMiCS Tonehammer Alien Drum Vol.1 KONTAKT DVDR-DYNAMiCS
The Alien Drum (aka Hang Drum – trademarked by Pan Art) is a unique tone based percussion instrument, which is almost impossible to come by, since there is only one maker in the world and less than 1000 drums in circulation. The instrument has a soft, sorrowful, melancholic tone to it and is a perfect companion for emotional or ambient type of scores. The Tonehammer Alien Drum is unique in the sense it was recorded at an average of 15 velocity layers and with 10 round-robin repetitions pr. layer/note, so you will never experience any repetition in the articulation.

We used custom microphone set-ups to capture the delicate resonance both inside and outside the drum, since the resonance defines the true sound of the drum. Additionally we sampled multiple playing techniques with fingers, palm, slaps, hand brushing and the back-side of the drum, which has the similar properties to the Udu. Multiple versions of all multis allow for a variety of ways to switch or fade between articulations while playing.

Tonehammer Alien Drum Facts:
Single finger tap on all 8 notes (including ding): 12 – 20 velocity layers, 10x round-robin 
Single finger mute on all 8 notes (including ding): 12 – 20 velocity layers, 10x round-robin
Fingertip ping on all 8 notes (including ding): 12 – 20 velocity layers, 10x round-robin
Palm slap on all 8 notes (including ding): 12 – 20 velocity layers, 10x round-robin
Sound Hole thumps: 12 velocity layers each, 10x round-robin
Sound Hole edge pings: 8 velocity layers each, 10x round-robin 
Hand Brushes included in finger tap patches: 3 styles, 5-9 velocity layers each, 10x round-robin
Articulation switching multis (sustain pedal, cc22, midi channel or modwheel fading/switching)
All multis in standard 8 note and full-range chromatic tuning versions
1/4 sized Low-Memory versions of all multis (slightly fewer velocity layers, 4x round-robin)

Suspended Cymbals is a sample library for Kontakt 4 and above that features 5 premium crash cymbals with 5 articulations each, including:

Side hits.
Modwheel controlled rolls.

Recorded with 3 microphone positions, 4 velocity layers and 4 round robin. All samples normalized to 0db, resulting in 128 volume steps, giving a much natural sound and feel.

The best feature on the library is being able to control the roll intensity with the modwheel. No more time-fixed samples which are very hard to sync with your track. With Suspended Cymbals you can control or play the rolls yourself.

On the mixer section you can mix each microphone position and apply convolution reverb with any of the 30 provided impulses, highpass and lowpass filters and envelope with attack, hold and decay.
On the settings section you can control the volume of each articuation separately, round robin repetitions, dynamic range, muffling time, velocity curve and voicing.

The cymbals: Zildjian Custom Session Crash 16", Zildjian Avedis Custom 18", Zildjian Dark Medium Thin 18", Paiste Masters Dark Crash 18" and Istanbul Mehmet Traditional 18".
We want this library to become the go-to for suspended cymbals, you'll find everything you need. It won't go any better than this!
Wavesfactory W-TubularBells KONTAKT-SYNTHiC4TE Wavesfactory W-TubularBells KONTAKT-SYNTHiC4TE
Tubular Bells, or Orchestral Chimes, are musical instruments in the percussion family. Each bell is a metal tube, 30–38 mm in diameter, tuned by altering its length. It rarely plays melody, mostly a bass that brings out some color but sometimes has some solos or solis, often very simple.

4 different mallets:

Hard = hard plastic.
Sharp = metal.
Soft = felp.
Thin = thin metal.

Up to 12x round robin (repetitions), 2 microphone positions (close, far). AKG-414s placed near the instrument, and a Neumann binaural microphone placed 3 meters away. You can crossfade between the two position right in the GUI.
Note damping, round robin reset and extended note range controls using keyswitches.

This is a must have in your orchestral template, no other library will give you this crystal clear sound, options and functionality. 
PureMagnetik MalletPak One MULTiFORMAT PureMagnetik MalletPak One MULTiFORMAT
MalletPak One is a collection of 13 multisampled marimba instruments. It was recorded in a reflective room with a pair of Shure KSM32s in an ORTF configuration to capture the wide stereo field of the instrument. Four different mallet types were used with multiple hits for round-robin triggering and several velocity layers each.

A violin bow recorded for each marimba bar creates an eerily textured patch with infinite sustain. A hybrid patch combining mallet strikes with the bowed texture allows you to mix between articulations. The Logic, Kontakt and Ableton versions include a massive program that includes all 4 mallet types for easy switching during a performance or recording. Additionally, there are several synthetic patches using the marimba as sound source to create unique new musical tones.

MalletPak was produced in collaboration with artist Richard Lainhart.
