THE BENDS is the second 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 it features a collection of all things metal - gongs, cymbals, gamelan, triangles, and miscellaneous household items, struck, scraped and bowed while being immersed in water. 

THE BENDS Highlights:

30 patches of otherworldly pitch bends, underwater rhythms and hits make for a very evocative library for the adventurous music creator.

750 samples (up to a minute long) recorded at 24-96 kHz with contact and stereo microphones.

Each patch allows for much manipulation with pitch, echo, reverb, shaping, arpeggiator and stutter key.

Rhythmic patches are bpm'd.

Most patches have velocity sensitivity assigned to the mod wheel. This gives even more flexibility in shaping rhythms when ARP (arpeggiator) is switched on. 


An array of metal gongs, cymbals & plates played while being immersed in water.

24bit 96kHz Multisamples (750 samples)

1.4GB Core Library (0.7GB via lossless compression)

Note: Requires Full Version Kontakt 5.3.1 or higher

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.

Sample Diggers In The Field Vol 1 WAV Sample Diggers In The Field Vol 1 WAV
In the field Vol 1 is a comprehensive sample library of field recordings, found sounds and SFX.

The sounds were captured from many locations around the world such as Mauritius, Greece, Spain, Turkey and the UK.

The sample library features many natural impact sounds that include smashes, crashes, drops, door bangs and creeks. The pack also includes sounds from nature such as bird song, oceans waves and long natural ambience recordings. Some of the samples are over a minute long and have many sounds within them that can be cropped out. You will also find animal samples, motors, traffic, household, water and a plethora of natural percussion sounds, which all can be used in music production, film and game audio.

There are 3 folders included in the pack. You get the raw recorded sounds that have only been levelled and faded, then you also get some produced SFX created from raw sounds and out-takes that were not included. As a bonus you also get 26 Sci FX.

There were a few different microphones used to capture the recordings in the library. Coil microphones are used to record interference from laptops, televisions, WIFI routers and any other electrical devices that gave off an interesting sound. Hydrophone and contact mics were also used to collect water sounds and unusual scrapes on metal and wood.

There are over 1.3gb of samples included, all recorded at 24bit, 44.1khz. All the files are named, so there easy to search in your favourite DAW or sampler.

The pack was created by sound designer and producer Danny Modular and the demo track was produced by Atma.

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).
