Best Service Extended Classical Choir Keyswitched KONTAKT
Best Service Extended Classical Choir Keyswitched KONTAKT
This is a custom crafted version of the choir library, heavily modified to be more useful in a modern sampler like Kontakt. It's an old library (very hard to find now, too) but extremely useful because it has consonants sampled individually (such as T, P, K, and Tzz) as well as uncommon singable consonants (such as Mmmm, Rrrr, and Zzzz). It is best used to "punch up" your favorite choir by overlaying syllables and consonants to help enunciate whatever your choir is already singing. The flexibility of this library to create any word you want is pretty good, just add your own reverb to blend it in with your choir library of choice.

Up to now, people have always simply done some kind of automatic conversion from Akai CD to Kontakt, which technically works, but the library simply isn't very user friendly because you end up with 100's of .nki files with parts of an instrument spread among several .nki files. Even worse it's usually hard to figure out which instrument to use because some of them are left or right channel only, or mono converted, or a short looped version to save memory, or any of a dozen other things that are simply a waste of time in a modern sampler. This particular version was painstakingly created (by hand!) over two days in order to eliminate all that confusion, and was carefully planned out to be the most user friendly version available; About 95% of what you will need when using this library has been placed into a single .nki that has been setup with keyswitches. Going even further, a custom script was created to display the keyswitch layout while you're using the instrument so that you never get lost or have trouble finding what you need. 

Additionally, everything has been compressed to .ncw so the footprint is smaller, and a .nicnt + wallpaper have been created so that you can simply add the library to Kontakt without the hassle of manually creating your own library file. If you are in the habit of creating your own library files it is recommended to make sure that the SNPID number doesn't conflict with something else you've already added into your library.

Mystic is the second in the Photosynthesis line of Kontakt libraries, an ambient cello library aimed at film/game composers, producers, and musicians who need otherworldly pads and soundscapes, unique cello articulations, and creative instrument effects. 

Mystic is derived entirely from nearly 6 hours of cello recordings, processed and twisted into over 120 beautiful Kontakt instruments. Alongside the processed instruments are raw solo cello articulations. This isn't a standard cello library, so there's no legato or staccato patch, but rather unique playing styles like artificial harmonics, harmonic tremolos, sustained ricochets, sul ponticello, harmonic glissandos, and more

Mystic includes 127 Kontakt .nki instruments, and a 2.25GB library of samples in .wav format (sound designers rejoice!). It's powered by the free Photosynthesis Engine, which allows extensive control over shaping the sounds, and is designed to make importing your own samples and creating your own instruments easy.

Requires the full version of Kontakt 5.1+

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.

Synthetic Instruments (SI-KTK) is a CD-ROM library with 43 waveform sets and more then 250 individual synthesizer instruments. SI-KTK will work in Kontakt version 1.2 and up. SI-KTK's instruments are true subtractive synthesizer programs, taking advantage of Kontakt's synthesizer engine, filters and modulation capabilities. Carefully prepared and unfiltered audio spectrums has been programmed and sampled, using an Analogue Systems 5-VCO modular and a Waldorf Microwave XT. The instruments were made by combining the audio data with parameter and filter tweaking - inside Kontakt. 

To form the instrument sounds and characteristics, Kontakt's filters, modulation routings are extensively utilized. Key velocity, pressure and modulation wheel are programmed for huge articulations. Amp and filter ENV parameters, controlled by key velocity, increases the sense of physical instrument behavior and feel.. 

The instruments are named by their sample set labels plus an indication of their styles - Bass, kbd, ld and pad. A wide mix of warm analogue style and ice cold digital modes. Evolving sounds, oscillator syncs, deep spacious pads, synth basses, detuned VCO patches with extreme saturation. But also chord friendly, thin and discreet instruments, suitable for piano style playing.

NEW PATCH LIBRARY for Omnipshere 2 by Laurent Veronnez aka Airwave. 

159 Patches

60 Mind Blowing Multis - these sound like a fully produced album or sample library sample - BUT you can dive into the components and EDIT them! We updated the library with separate Drum Menus (Bass Drums, Snares, Claps and Hats!) and more cool Multis that will make your CPU processor melt. Well, actually we made "LITE" versions of many mulits for those that need a more CPU friendly version of many Multis. WARNING: Some of these Multis are Massively CPU HUNGRY. We decided to keep them in the library because they are very cool and inspiring but be aware your computer might not play a few of these without audio "challenges".

26 New Airwave Effect Rack presets (including a wonderful reverb preset that sounds nicer than just the standard Reverb in Omnisphere) 

160 Rack Presets from PlugInGuru (this library will soon be included with every Omnisphere library - so you might already have it - consider it bonus content.)

As of August 4, 2015 this Omnisphere library now includes the files in folders for Omnisphere version 1 AND a .omnisphere file for Omnisphere version 2.1. This library also includes all of my V1 bonus presets for the EG, Arpeggiator and the Effect Racks. There are READ ME files for helping you with installation if needed. Thank you again!
