The Alpine Project Alpine Bass Clarinet KONTAKT
The Alpine Project came about from a realization about the state of free sample libraries. While there were many free samples in the public domain, there were hard to find, and in varying hard to use formats.

The Alpine Project collects the best public domain musical instrument samples, and combines them with clever scripting and effects in NI’s Kontakt. The result is great sounding free sample libraries that can find a place in the beginning and professional composer’s studio.

The Alpine Project libraries

French Horn — This French Horn Sample Library is based on samples from the University of Iowa Music Instrument Samples. It is very playable and simple to use. But most of all, it has a great sound. The dynamic range of the instrument is very large, due to the modeled dynamics.
English Horn — This English Horn Sample Library is based on samples from the free Eddie’s English Horn Soundfont.
Bass Clarinet — This Bass Clarinet library uses samples from the University of Iowa MIS.

The libraries are available for download for Kontakt 5 or higher (full version).

HeadlessBuddha Clapless Buddha KONTAKT HeadlessBuddha Clapless Buddha KONTAKT
HeadlessBuddha Samples has announced Clapless Buddha, a free sample pack.

I’ve never found a cool claps sample library and have always had to record the clapping myself. I mean real hand claps. There’s plenty of drum machine claps sample libraries around. This was my main motivation to record these 65 one shot samples. I don’t like recording claps every time.

Do you always clap your hands the same way, with that perfect sound? I don’t. I suck at hand clapping and I screw the recordings every time. I needed this thing probably more than you do. Either way you can take it home for free.
Here’s the thing: these wrong claps may also find a place on your music like they sometimes do on mine. If you don’t want the "wrong” ones, there are quite a few perfect ones! It’s quite easy to make it sound like a crowd clapping or applauding, or use it like a drum machine, a clap ensemble, or whatever.

Yeah, it was recorded through tape, but it’s not as extreme as we usually do. This time we’ve left (most of) the processing to you.
Enough talk, have a listen!

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.
