Vibe XXL Hip Hop Horns WAV KONTAKT
XXL HIP HOP HORNS is a virtual instrument created for Kontakt 5.5 and above, designed specifically for Hip Hop producers, DJs, and beat-makers who want to add Royalty-Free solo horn hooks and horn section hooks to their productions.

XXL3X features all of the most popular types of horn elements used in Hip Hop, including:

• XXL Super-Heavy Horn Section Hooks: a collection of horn lines and hooks played by a massive-sounding horn section featuring tuba, bass trombone, and two bari saxes. Also includes a playable instrument patch so you can create your own XXL hooks.

• Horn Section Hooks: live-played horn lines and hooks in a variety of Funk, Soul, and R&B styles, played with a deep swing-feel so they sit right in the groove.

• Solo Horn Hooks: a huge collection of solo horn licks, squeals, and FX, ranging in style from Jazzy to Funky to just plain crazy. Includes solo bari sax, tenor sax, trumpet, and flute.• Scratched & Programmed Horn Hooks: funky turntablist scratch-loops and programmed loops created from solo and horn section samples.

• Sampled Hits, Chords & FX: a collection of stabs, chords, and long notes with a funky, lo-fi vibe...

Important: Funky Syncopation and "The One”
When you start using XXL3H, you’ll notice that some of the loops in this VI seem to start late. That is, there’s a second or two of blank space (silence) before the actual horn-loop can be heard.

This is not a mistake. It’s actually the way some of the loops in XXL3H are supposed to play.

The reason is that not all the loops in XXL3H are supposed to start "on the one". Some of the horn lines and solo licks start later, which gives them a funky, syncopated feel. This is a horn-arranging technique that was used in many old school R&B and Funk horn lines, and is still used today in most types of modern Hip Hop and R&B.

The XXL3H GUI
The XXL3H Kontakt GUI features a set of easy-to-use controls and effects that allow you to make loops and one shots sound like they were sampled from an old vinyl LP - or not, if you prefer a cleaner sound.

The GUI controls are:

•TREBLE - increases (turn to the right to) or decreases (turn to the left) the amount of high end.

•BASS - increases (turn to the right to) or decreases (turn to the left) the amount of low end.

•TAPE SAT - adds tape-style compression to the mix

•LO-CUT - cuts low-end, making the loop or sample sound more like an old lo-fi vinyl record.

•VINYLIZER - adds sampled vinyl noise and dirt. Use the button to turn this effect on or off.

•TUNE - raises pitch (turn to the right) or lowers pitch (turn to the left), in half-tone increments.

•REVERB - controls the amount of the type of reverb you select.

•SELECT - a drop-down menu that lets you choose one of 10 quality Convolution Reverbs, ranging in color from super-clean to dirty and funky.A Note About Multi-Colored Patches & Keyswitches
Red keys indicate patches that have Keyswitches. These keys can be used to trigger different articulations, including as sustain, staccato, stabs, and fall-offs.

•Multi-Colored keys are used in patches that have two or more types of polyphonated samples. The different key-colors make it easier to see where each group of samples begins and ends.

Vibe Funk Force 5 WAV KONTAKT Vibe Funk Force 5 WAV KONTAKT
FUNK FORCE 5 is an outstanding product created by VIBE, a new indie label and subsidiary of FUNK/SOUL PRODUCTIONS - producers of over 30 best-selling sample CDs and Virtual instruments.

FF5 is a virtual instrument created for Kontakt 5.5 and above. You will need the full version of Kontakt to use this product.

FF5 was inspired by the great soundtrack music featured in so many classic 1970s-era Cop Shows and exploitation movies - like Shaft, Super-Fly, Coffy, Baretta, Starsky & Hutch, and many more. The music of this era remains as popular as ever, and can still be heard in many modern R&B and Hip Hop productions, TV shows, and the movies of Quentin Tarrantino and many others.

Now, those soulful, gritty, retro-funky sounds are available for you to use, Royalty Free, in a single Kontakt instrument - played live by the Funk/Soul Brothers, a group of professional studio and touring musicians who have been playing old school R&B, Funk, Soul, and Jazz for over 40 years. 

Funk Force 5 contains 15 massive song-kits with 781 loops, plus bonus drum, congas, and wah-guitar loops and one-shots - 1.37 GB of uncompressed wav data in all.

The FF5 Kontakt GUI controls are:
TREBLE - increases (turn to the right to) or decreases (turn to the left) the amount of high end.
BASS - increases (turn to the right to) or decreases (turn to the left) the amount of low end.
TAPE SAT - adds tape-style compression to the mix
DISTORT - adds guitar amp-style distortion. Use the button to turn this effect on or off. 
PITCH - raises pitch (turn to the right) or lowers pitch (turn to the left), in half-tone increments.
VINYLIZER - adds sampled vinyl noise and dirt. Use the button to turn this effect on or off.
REVERB - controls the amount of reverb You can select the type of reverb you want by using the drop-down menu that can be found just below the Reverb knob.

The Song-Kits
There are 15 Song-Kits included in FF5. Each contains an entire song divided into individual instrument-loops, all of which are in the same key and tempo. You can arrange or cut-up these loops any way you like to create your own beats, hooks, rhythm section grooves, and horn section parts.

Each Song-Kit consists of 5 Kontakt Instruments: Drums, Bass, Guitars, Keyboards, and Horns. By default, all these Instruments have been assigned to MIDI Channel 1, tomake it easy to listen to all the loops in a Song-Kit at once.

If you use the default setting, you can play and record any instrument using just a single MIDI channel. In single-track (one MIDI channel) mode, you can create a mix by using each individual Instrument’s controls to adjust volume, panning, and FX as desired.
If you prefer to work in multi-track (multiple MIDI channels) mode, you can assign each of the 5 Instruments in the Song-Kit to a different MIDI Channel.

Each of the 5 Instruments in a kit features a selection of loops, organized by color. The colored keys appear on the virtual keyboard at the bottom of the Kontakt player, and are arranged as follows:
Red keys = Drum Loops
Purple keys = Bass Loops
Yellow keys = Guitar Loops
Blue keys = Keyboard & String Section Loops Green keys = Flute and Horn Section Loops

Mixing & Matching Instruments From Different Song-Kits
Besides using the Song-Kits as is, you can also mix and match loops from different Kits to create your own original grooves and hooks. Kontakt makes this easy to do, as it automatically adjusts the tempo of any instrument-patch that you load into your DAW. And the FF5 GUI makes it easy to change the key of any Instrument patch just by using the Pitch control knob.

That said, when mixing and matching loops from different Kits, there is one issue that you should be aware of. By default, all of the Song-Kits are laid out so that there is a separate key for each Instrument and each loop. But if you mix and match loops from different kits, the key-maps will overlap at times.

As long as each Instrument is assigned to a different MIDI Channel, this won’t cause a problem. But if you’ve assigned all the Instruments to MIDI Channel 1, you may find that pressing a single key may trigger more than one loop.

MPC Samples MPC Horns MULTiFORMAT MPC Samples MPC Horns MULTiFORMAT
Ever wanted to create your own unique killer horn riff? Need a haunting trumpet line or a jazzy sax solo? Sick of using unrealistic synth emulations? Turn your MPC into a virtual brass section with MPC-Samples latest instrument multisample collection, ‘MPC Horns’!

Inside you’ll find 6 multisampled brass instrument programs recorded directly from actual acoustic brass instruments - Alto Sax, Tenor Sax, Flugel Horn, Trumpet and two different Muted Trumpets.

Each instrument is fully multisampled across its effective acoustic range, with plenty of natural timbre changes from note to note to ensure your performances sound incredibly realistic.

The demo below is our arrangement of the old jazz standard, Big Mess, which uses all the brass sounds from the pack, both as solo instruments and as a complete horn section – everything is 100% sequenced in an MPC, there are no loops whatsoever. The piano and bass sounds are from MPC Keys and MPC Bass respectively.

MPC Horns is compatible with all MPCs – that means you’ll get full native keygroup programs for the MPC Software (XPM), MPC5000 (50k) and MPC4000 (AKP) and chromatic DRUM programs for all other MPCs (e.g. MPC1000/2500/500/2000/XL/3000/60).

Just load up the most appropriate program file for your MPC model and the instrument will map itself across your pads in correct note order – you can then create your own horn lines using your pads or via an attached MIDI keyboard.

MPC Software and MPC5000 programs also take advantage of the built in random layer playback features which mean all your programs sound even more realistic as each note is programmed to play back one of up to three different timbres each time it is struck!

MPC Horns is the world’s only multisampled horn collection for MPCs – available exclusively from MPC-Samples.com!

Technical Specification:

Samples: 6 multisampled horns & brass programs
Format: Contains WAV and MPC SND versions of all sounds and PGM files that auto-assign the sounds across the pads.
Compatibility: Compatible with all MPCs and all versions of JJOS

The Alpine Project Horns KONTAKT The Alpine Project Horns 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).
