Glockenspiel with a Raw and Colourful Sound KONTAKT
Glockenspiel with a Raw and Colourful Sound KONTAKT
Jonathan’s Glockenspiel was created by composer and sound designer Jonathan Howe.

It consists of 1 and a half octaves and features 7 sampled velocity layers for each note. Naturally it can play in the keys of C, G and F but some samples have been stretched to give you the full chromatic scale and make it a little more versatile. These have been colored red on the keyboard so you know when you are using stretched samples.

Additionally, below the playing range you#ll find some samples of dropping the mallet which you can use for some additional realism, which brings the instrument up to 101 individual samples in total!

It also has a simple reverb on/off switch, a knob reverb size, a humanizing function which you can use to randomly detune the keys and a simple 3-Band EQ.

Last but not least the library also includes a sound design patch which uses the glockenspiel samples and transforms it into a pad-like sound.

(Full version of Kontakt 5 required – not compatible with free Kontakt Player)

A Unique Bowed Glockenspiel Sample Library KONTAKT A Unique Bowed Glockenspiel Sample Library KONTAKT
The Rosinspiel is a glockenspiel that has been played with a bow instead of a mallet.

It has a very unique soft, glassy like sound and its an incredibly unusual sample library – perfect for orchestral and underscore music.

The Rosinspiel is glockenspiel played with a bow instead of being struck with a mallet. The result is an unusual, silky sounding instrument with an almost ethereal string like sound.

The staccato samples sound like a celeste with a softer attack, while the sustains sound like a glass armonica with slight bow noise. The samples are tuned to match OrchestralTools’ The Glock.

Recorded with a close mic in 24 bit Mono

The Rosinspiel was close mic’d and recorded in mono as 24bit WAVs. Each sampled sustain is held for 8 seconds or longer with three dynamics recorded for each sustain. Crossfading is controllable via the mod wheel. – The physical instrument’s range is from G3-C6. The virtual instrument’s range is C3-C6.

In total there are 99 sustain samples with 3 velocity layers and 1xRR and 155 staccato samples with 1 velocity layer and 5XRR. It comes with 3 patches – bowed sustain, bowed sustain loop (credit to Park Bench) and staccato.

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).

Micromorph Morphzilla KONTAKT AUDIOSTRIKE Micromorph Morphzilla KONTAKT AUDIOSTRIKE
 
Morphzilla is a dual layer morphing tool for Kontakt 5 with a wide range of sounds including monstrous textured drones, evolving pads, ghostly atmospheres, impacts to complex, microscopic sound design elements.

Morphzilla provides more tools for composers/producers to create unique sound patches. Field recordings, found sounds and other sound oddities have been processed to create a palette of wonky and beautiful textures, mixing organic and non organic sounds.

Combine, twist, sculpt and morph to stretch the possibilities of this unique library and create your own sonic patches. Includes dusty pads, nasty impacts to beautiful textured soundscapes and more. But this is just the start – edit the sample start of each sound, reverse and morph the samples in each menu independently, then combine and crossfade these using the modulation wheel. One patch and 2 sample menus holding 302 unique, organically cultivated and beautifully sculptured sounds.

Although these samples will sound great out of the box, there aren’t really any preset patches in here – It’s ready and waiting for you to delve in to the simple user interface and create unique instrument patches for each project. This will sound like no other sample library you own – morphing between music and sound design, it’s dark, twisted and nasty but also uniquely beautiful too. If you want to add something a little bit special to your tracks, then this library is for you.

Morphzilla is great! Such a useful tool to create atmosphere.It’s really simple to use and only takes a few minutes to grasp the basics to create unique sounds quickly.I can’t wait to use it on a project

Nicolas Signat Alive Littles V1 KONTAKT Nicolas Signat Alive Littles V1 KONTAKT
Here's your new sandbox full of toys! 88 instruments are waiting for you inside the main Kontakt patch. All samples have been recorded very close with high-end equipment (Nagra LB, KM185, Blue Dragonfly, AT4050, Rode NT4) in high definition (88.2kHz 24bit) in dry rooms. 

Every sample is 'alive' and dynamic due to 10 random robins for every recording! Our GUI gives you access to a lot of transformations and modulations, all based on velocity. You can set filters, pitch, stereo effects and panning, ADSR envelope, play in reverse, offset and volume sound by sound. 

You can choose to use random robins or not. Moreover, we added some great global effects on a second tab with a transient designer, EQ, flanger, chorus, phaser, tape saturator, lo-fi (bit crusher) and reverb. 

Features:

• 5 main patches which are presets for the whole sandbox. 
• 32 chromatic instruments
• 19 sound design patches made from the same sample pool! 

The Sound Designer patches are unique little instruments in their own right. We will try and produce some examples of these as soon as we can.

NOTE: For the full retail version of Kontakt 5.3.1.37 or above only. Will only work in 'Demo' mode if you have the free version of Kontakt Player.
