Wavelore Pedal Steel Guitar 1.1 KONTAKT-FIST
Wavelore Pedal Steel Guitar 1.1 KONTAKT-FIST
The Wavelore Pedal Steel Guitar is the world's first pedal steel library to date that is fully playable in realtime. Instead of relying on pre-recorded licks and loops, the Wavelore Pedal Steel Guitar uses single-note samples with advanced KSP scripting to put all ten bendable strings of E9th tuning right under your fingers! Programmed with 8-way round-robin samples per note, this amazing instrument is rounded out with multiple amp simulations, full neck position control, two types of release samples, and a host of tweakable/assignable controls for complete flexibility.

Instrument Features:

Ten strings of E9th-tuned pedal steel guitar, totalling 1.9 Gigabytes of 24-bit samples for Native Instruments Kontakt 2 or above.

Allows independent pitch bending of all strings in nearly endless combinations, all on a single Kontakt MIDI channel.

8-Way Round-Robin sampling for natural sounding repetitions of notes and phrases.

Gives access to 24 neck positions via assignable MIDI CC#. New in Version 2.5: Position control via keyswitch or "Auto-Position Mode".

Seperately assignable controls for vibrato speed and depth.

Convolution Amp Modeling: 3 Amps with up to four reverb settings and multiple stereo/mono mic configurations.

Realtime release sample control (pick damping and palm damping).

MIDI Learn mode for all assignable controls and keyswitches.

A feature-rich, dynamic performance view with three pages of clearly organized and intuitive controls for tweaking the instrument to your taste and style.

Carefully chosen factory settings to allow unsurpassed out-of-the-box playability.

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)

Tonehammer Lakeside Organ EXS24 KONTAKT DVDR-DYNAMiCS Tonehammer Lakeside Organ EXS24 KONTAKT DVDR-DYNAMiCS
The Lakeside Pipe Organ is a part steel pipe and part electric organ that produces most of its sound by venting mechanically compressed air (wind) through resonant pipes. Each pipe produces sound of one fixed pitch, so they are provided in sets with one pipe or more per note, each set or stop having a common timbre and loudness throughout.The Lakeside Pipe Organ has multiple sets of pipes of differing timbre, pitch and loudness which the player can employ singly or in combination. The actual organ is made from three keyboards, played by the hands, and a pedal board for bass notes, played by the feet, each of which controls its own group of stops.

We carefully recorded our organ at the Lakeside Temple of Practical Christianity (Oakland, CA), with master organist Don Sears. We captured it a variety of different stop settings and combinations, allowing you to control the timbre of the organ. We recorded five different settings comparably from PP to FF. The majority of this library focuses on the classic steel pipes only, although we also opened up some of the organ's vintage electric stops for a little extra low-end reinforcement on our high 5th setting. All settings recorded at two microphone positions (close/far), so user have ultimately flexibility between 10 different organ settings. Every note was captured for up to ten seconds and all release-triggered samples were captured individually.

Additionally we realized that many other organ sample libraries use noise reduction, which gives a more polished/clinical or even garbled sound to the organ. We decided to take the opposite approach and allow all the air sounds in the library, since the "noise" is the air produced by the bellows and pipes that drive the instrument. This means that the organ has a more clearer, brighter, fuller, much more life-like and airy sound (especially in softer settings), giving it a more emotionally expressive and natural quality.

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. 
Orange Tree Samples Addons Mind Control KONTAKT-AudioP2P Orange Tree Samples Addons Mind Control KONTAKT-AudioP2P
Give your sample libraries a mind of their own with Orange Tree Samples' MIND CONTROL (TM)add-on for KONTAKT 4. MIND CONTROL maximizes KONTAKT's "instrument bank" feature, which allows you to drag entire sample libraries into KONTAKT. It introduces a user-friendly master interface to let you create rules for how KONTAKT should automatically switch between sample libraries, making sequencing or performing more convenient and intuitive. The switching can be based on simple elements like pitch, velocity, or controller ranges as well as more advanced ones, such as your own latching and non-latching keyswitches. You can even add randomness into the equation! MIND CONTROL even comes with a sample library called
"Stratosphere Electric Guitar" with which you can conduct your first experiments on. The sample library features three velocity layers, round-robin, and articulations such as palm muting,whole-step slides, grace notes, and more.
