ModWheel Biscuit Tin Guitar KONTAKT
ModWheel Biscuit Tin Guitar KONTAKT
The instrument that MODWHEEL has sampled for their Biscuit Tin Guitar library is a one off, hand crafted by Steve Roche. Steve has been making tin guitars and other odd instruments for many years for use in his soundtrack work with Plan 9 and live with the bands he performs with.

This particular instrument is a 4 string fretless with open G Banjo tuning (D G B D). For sampling purposes the range of the instrument has been extended down to the E below the D of its natural range.

The instrument is fitted with a pickup and was recorded both acoustically as well as through a vintage Fender Twin Reverb amp.

As an acoustic instrument the Biscuit Tin Guitar has a wonderfully unique sound that is caught somewhere between a Dobro and a Banjo. The electric version can sit anywhere between clean and a tin can being dragged behind a car, depending on your taste.

What You Get

35 Kontakt patches both acoustic and electric, with finger and plectrum Performance. Keyswitches operate the different note options i.e. Long, Short, Mute, Semitone Slide Up and Hammer Off. There is also dynamic keyswitching to aid performance with several velocity layers and at least 3 round robins. An FX panel on each patch gives the ability to adjust the sound to further suit your requirements.

The instrument has also been used for its percussive possibilities and there are several percussion kits and BPM'd rhythm patches.

In addition there are a number of patches that play arpeggios and song patterns from a single key.

Ilya Efimov Fretless Bass KONTAKT-MAGNETRiXX Ilya Efimov Fretless Bass KONTAKT-MAGNETRiXX
This library is a detailed emulation of a hi-end 5-string "studio custom” fretless bass from the famous Canadian company F-Bass. We recorded 12 dynamic layers for each fret of each string with different playing techniques and articulations. 

The three right hand positions in one patch: normal, soft, jaco. Additional articulations - allow you to conveniently and quickly edit your midi notation or play in real-time. We have minimized the use keyswitches, making the instrument simple and intuitive to use. A sophisticated algorithm to select strings in real time, automatically selects the natural bass guitar left-hand position on the fretboard. Manual string and position selection are also available.

The library’s repetition keys make it easy to play realistic ostinato bass-lines. FX glissando will allow you to introduce new musical "colors” to your bass guitar parts. Multiple legato types are changed automatically, depending on the first note played.

Included, are several Legato modes, Open String mode, Chord Detection mode and X-note mode; for the convenience of composers and arrangers!

Beautiful Darabuka Drum Library V.1.1 Lite MiDi EXS24 KONTAKT Beautiful Darabuka Drum Library V.1.1 Lite MiDi EXS24 KONTAKT
This is a sample library of a beautiful Darabuka that I’ve received as a gift and thought it would make a great addition to use in my projects, especially since I’ve sampled certain articulations that I mostly use. This Darabuka was recorded with 4 dynamic layers per articulation and with 2 dynamic layers for the rolls. I haven’t recorded any RRs, but you’ll find that there are enough articulations and velocity layers to create a fairly realistic performance with it.

The Darabuka was captured in mono using the AKG 420 Perception microphone, which really brought out the clarity of the instrument while retaining the body. I’ve included a MIDI file performance using the instrument, which will give you an idea of how to use the instrument.

I’ll be further expanding on this instrument in the future by recording lots of Round Robins than I originally did, more articulations, and a couple more mic positions. In the meantime, please enjoy using this simple but articulate instrument!

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)
