ARIA Sounds Colossal Toms KONTAKT DVDR
ARIA Sounds Colossal Toms KONTAKT DVDR
ARIA Sounds are proud to present "Colossal Toms", an ensemble of eight separately playable toms, with tunings from large and deep to high. One of the things that really makes this library stand out, easy to use, and realistic, is that we tried to max out the velocity layers, so each hit has up to 127 different, separately recorded dynamics.

This means, on top of the fact that you virtually eliminate the problem of hearing one sample twice too soon, creating an artificial sound, but you can obtain extremely realistic performances. A loud section can be easily scaled down in dynamics, due to the fact that there are so many velocity layers - see the upcoming demos for examples of this.

The instrument is also compatible with both version 4 and 5 of Kontakt, and comes with a close mic position, and hall mic position. Each drum has been played with varied techniques, including soft mallets, sticks, sticks with newspaper on the drum, rims, hands, brushes etc.

Click each of the drum icons on the interface to load and unload that particular drum. Unloaded drums will appear on the keyboard interface as black, and loaded drums with active samples will be shown as blue keys.

ARIA Sounds Surdos And Snares KONTAKT DVDR ARIA Sounds Surdos And Snares KONTAKT DVDR
The latest installment in our percussion section boasts over 6GB of sample data, with maxed out (127) dynamic layers for full realism, and an extremely controllable sound and soundscape with various techniques. Epic Drums VST Library for Kontakt 4 (Full Version) and above - consisting of an ensemble of eight separately playable, differently pitched toms.

ARIA Sounds are proud to present "Surdos & Snares", a percussion ensemble consisting of three snares and three surdo drums, all placed in the displayed formation (screenshot below), and reproduced faithfully, so you can play these drums, and they will sound in these positions.

We have absolutely pushed the variation and authenticity to the limit with this library. There are 127 dynamic layers per hit/technique/key in these drums, which provides even more benefits than the obvious lack of repetition, or the dreaded "machine-gun effect".

Say you record/play in a performance with this instrument, and then possibly go into the MIDI data and tweak a few hits' dynamics to get the performance how you want it... and then decide the general feel needs to be either louder or quieter.

As there is a smooth gradient from bottom to top in terms of dynamic layers, dragging the entire velocity data of the track up and down will completely transform the performance, as opposed to just moving the MIDI data through a few dynamic layers, and primarily relying on simply lowering and raising the volume of certain samples. In our demo videos, you can see this in action.

The instrument is also compatible with both version 4 and 5 of Kontakt (the full version, not the free Kontakt Player - the paid version of Kontakt only), and comes with a close mic position, and main stage mic position.

Each drum has been played with varied techniques, including soft mallets, sticks, rims, hands, different brushes.

Click each of the drum icons on the interface to load and unload that particular drum. Unloaded drums will appear on the keyboard interface as black, and loaded drums with active samples will be shown as blue keys.

AudioThing Wood KONTAKT-MAGNETRiXX AudioThing Wood KONTAKT-MAGNETRiXX
 
Wood is an organic material, found in plants, and used for many purposes such as making musical instruments. Many wooden instruments are idiophones, instruments where the vibration of the material itself is the main source of the sound. Following this concept, Wood is a sample library made by sampling hits, collision or effects with wooden tools (sticks, claves, boards, drums, castanets, bowls and so on). The samples are then processed into different instruments ranging from tuned/untuned percussions, drum kits, hits/noises to sound textures and sound effects. Wood features 17 instruments and 4 multis using 278 stereo samples with many round robin and velocity layers. Four standard effects are accessible from the custom performance view: Saturation, Rotator, Delay and Reverb.

ARIA Sounds Hybrichord Vol 1 KONTAKT DVDR ARIA Sounds Hybrichord Vol 1 KONTAKT DVDR
The Vol 1 of Hybrichord is our first exploration into what we can really get out of a normal piano, and the initial results are fantastic. Using various means of getting the instrument to vibrate, including wiring the instrument up, using magnets, electric current, etc.

We managed to create some fantastic organic sounding sonic landscapes. The user interface has controls to allow you to shape and sculpt some of the sound to your liking for use in your music. Of course, we have also included a variety of more well known experimental techniques, including picks, plucks, bows, hammers, drumming, screws in the strings etc. 

This library contains over 4 GB of excellent cinematic content, recorded at 96KHz, 24-Bit.

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)

ARIA Sounds Pipe Organ (KONTAKT) ARIA Sounds Pipe Organ (KONTAKT)
Includes individual stops, combinations, real release sample length control as well as octave extension controls - for Kontakt 4 and above (Full Version)


We are proud to present our sampled pipe organ, a magnificent huge church organ where you can virtually pull out the stops in the interface, choosing between a fantastic selection of stops, combinations and tuttis. Ranges of each stop will be shown on the keyboard when activated, pedals low, and manuals higher, plus optional octave extention controls, just like on a real organ. There is also the option to reduce/extend the length of the release samples, depending on whether you want that huge grand organ sound in a large space, or a cleaner more crisp and defined sound.
 
We chose to also sample some optional combinations and tutti sounds, as well as individual stops, due to the fact that the way sound interacts and moves around in a room when the stops are pulled out together, is not faithfully enough replicated when individually sampled and layered digitally.

The church organ sampled here contains 2GB of magnificently engineered sound, by a top class organ, and was recorded at 96KHz, 24Bit. The stops and sounds available are listed below.

Pedals:
Open bass
