Modwheel Angklung KONTAKT
Modwheel Angklung KONTAKT
ANGKLUNG is the third release in the Creative Differences series, a percussion instrument library that focuses on quality, organic percussion sounds recorded and designed for the Kontakt user.

Following in the footsteps of HUMDRUM and THE BENDS and WORLDLY GOODS it features a collection of 24 tuned Bamboo Angklung.

The Angklung is a musical instrument from Indonesia now popular throughout South East Asia. Made of two to four bamboo tubes attached to a bamboo frame. The tubes are carved to have a resonant pitch when struck and are often tuned to octaves. The base of the frame is held in one hand, whilst the other hand strikes the instrument. This causes a repeating note to sound. 

ANGKLUNG Highlights:

23 Kontakt patches of single hits, rhythms, rattles and effects.

1570 samples recorded at 24-96 kHz with contact and stereo microphones.

We're not sure what the standard Angklung set is made up of but ours has the following...

18 Angklung that have 2 bamboo rattles that play an octave apart.

6 Angklung that have 3 rattles each that play a tonic, major 3rd and a fifth. The Major chord Angklung have been kept as separate patches

The single patches have 10 round robins of both up and down playing. The up stroke plays on key release and the volume of this stroke can be adjusted using the mod wheel.

Angklung -The Bamboozler also features a few patches that aren’t bamboo derived. You also get The Bambonezler a patch made up of bones, shells and seed pods.

The Bamstonezler a patch of slate stone hits that have been tuned and will play chromatically. 

Features:

23 Patches of Tuned Bamboo Angklung

24bit 96kHz Multisamples (1570 samples)

2.58GB Core Library (1.4GB via lossless compression)

Note: Requires Full Version Kontakt 5.3.0 or higher

Tonehammer Cylindrum KONTAKT DVDR-DYNAMiCS Tonehammer Cylindrum KONTAKT DVDR-DYNAMiCS
The Cylindrum is a massive tuned percussion instrument designed using the principle of open and closed air column resonance. The instrument was constructed by Gregg Stephens with the help some rather involved mathematics, plenty of elbow grease and quite a few bloody fingers. The end result is a massive 20-foot-long tuned percussion instrument with a pitch range spanning a full 4 octaves. Overall, it sounds like a strange organic synthesizer coupled with tuned tom toms. And with deeply nuanced dynamic velocity layering and extensive round-robin variation, this instrument is truly an experimental percussionist's dream come true.

Our Cylindrum library contains three separate variations of the instrument (dry small, dry fat and wet). The small set is made from a series of 1-inch diameter PVC water pipes played by tapping fingers over one end, with a microphone positioned at the far end. The fat version is made from a series of 4-inch ABS corrugated plastic tubes with an open-ended rubber port hole, played with a ping ping paddle. Both sets were recorded in a dry studio room, giving them a full, resonant and fat tonality perfect for arpeggiated melodies and driving bass lines. The wet version is built from 3-inch ABS corrugated plastic tubes with felt mallets on a a 3/8? heavy rubber cap, recorded in an ultra-wide stereo array in a lush glass and tile hall. This slightly more distant sound and closed port delivers a much more brutal transient impact perfect for dramatic scoring and layer with other traditional percussion.

4 Main Articulations

Dry Fat (10x rr, 6-7 velocities)
Dry Small (2x rr, 20+ velocities)
Dry Fat Mute (10x rr, 1 velocities)
Wet (10x rr, 6-7 velocities)
Bonus Content

Special FX Sound Design Instruments
Atmospheric Ambiences, Pads, Drones and Synth Leads created from the raw organic Cylindrum recordings.
Tonehammer Clack KONTAKT Tonehammer Clack KONTAKT
The theme and purpose of Clack! is pretty simple. We wanted to capture as much sharp, bright, warm, tonal wooden impact percussion as your heart desires. We captured several bamboo poles, bamboo logs, a whole pile of claves, woodblocks, clappers, box drum, and other assorted wooden implements that epitomize the word "thwack." These elements are specifically ideal auxiliary elements for orchestral composition and epic film/tv/game soundtrack scoring. They also are vital elements in Latin music and hip hop, as well as very useful percussion building-blocks and raw source material for experimental music and IDM.

We recorded all of these sets up-close and 90% dry, in a medium-sized hardwood and masonry percussion studio, providing just the right amount of body and liveliness. All presets include a Release knob to allow you to dial in just the right amount of room you need. All instruments were captured with 10 round-robins per velocity layer, with an average of 6 velocity layers per note. The modwheel controls the tightness of room decay in all patches that don't use the modwheel for other purposes, such as cross-fading or swapping between layers. Any patch that has "mw" appended to the nki filename also uses the modwheel for a special function.

We also included 9 unique sets of ambient drones as a bonus. We created them entirely from the original Clack sample source material, using special sound design techniques. These multi-layered sound-scapes utilize the modhweel to allow you to sculpt and morph these ambiences very expressively. The rich flavors of these custom drones range from bright and orchestral, to choral, to thunderous, to quite dark and gritty.

5"x6' bamboo logs (23 articulations)
1"x7' small bamboo poles (6 articulations)/li>
2 sets of castanets (solo and unison)
Wooden trident clapper (single notes and sustaining rolls)
7 assorted pairs of claves (7 articulations)
Classic wooden popgun
Rattle impacts (4 different rattles/shakers)
Whaledrum "cajon" (4 articulations)
Semi-tuned woodblocks (6 articulations)
Misc mallet shaft & handle strikes (2 articulations)
Clack! includes a complete set of custom controls to dial in sounds like never before. By adjusting the attack, you can round out an articulation to a soft, swelling sound. Use the offset feature and cut into the sample removing the harsh transient altogether. Adjust the Release knob to cut the sample down to a mere fraction of a second. All articulations are velocity sensitive and you can use the Swell knob to further sculpt the volume. Each articulation has been tuned to it's dominant frequency and chromatically spread out across the keys allowing this library to serve as both percussion and melody. The stepping knob provides pitch-shifting of ±48 semitones with optional key-switching for ±12 semitones.

Our Tone / FX controls give you access to a number of effects to shape the sounds further. The 3-band EQ gives you ±18db of Low, Mid and High with a fully adjustable Mid Freq. sweep from 20Hz to 20kHz. Other effects include Lo-Fi with adjustable bit-depth and sampling frequency, Flanger, Rotator, Pro-53 Filter, Delay with tempo-synch, Convolution Reverb and a Stereo Modeller. The Uberpeggiator is another powerful feature included in most Percussion and FX patches. It's an advanced arpeggiator allowing control over tempo-synched rhythm timing, number of hits, swing, repeat, pitch, scale and a full 16-step velocity table.
PdH Factory Voice of Monks KONTAKT PdH Factory Voice of Monks KONTAKT

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.
