AudioThing has announced the release of Bells, a sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt.
As the name suggests, Bells is a collection of samples derived from many different kinds of bells.
After visiting Pontificia Fonderia Marinelli in Agnone, Italy – the largest bells company and one of the oldest family-owned businesses worldwide – we started collecting many different kinds of bells, including: an Agnone souvenir bell, three different cowbells, a hotel desk-bell, a Perko fog bell, and a classic school bell.
All the bells are made from different materials such as bronze, brass, and iron, and we sampled them with different articulations and techniques to provide a wide range of sounds.
