Humanworkshop releases 3 free Kontakt instruments
Humanworkshop has released 3 free sampled instruments for Kontakt.
Kontakt was envisioned as a ‘new-breed’ software sampler, the original version pushing for a stable interface to work with pitched musical sound. Some say that Kontakt’s main focus was interface design, enabling musicians to quickly and painlessly create their own instruments based on sampling sound sources.
In version 3 options are almost limitless. We have tweaked single shot samples into complete chromatic pad instruments and bad ass sounding synth leads.
I thought it would be nice to share some instruments I made during testing of ksp scripting. (check the fancy backgrounds!)
Humanworkshop Kontakt instruments
- AnaSynth, a beast that might be reminiscent of (chris) Clark type-o stuff. With step sequenced parameters for extra control.
- ArabFlutist, basically a flute that is tuned in Harmonic Minor. It does not matter what key you hit, it will always play in the key of the scale.
- PadMeister, a true pad meister. Moody, maybe even creepy!
The Kontakt instruments are available as a free download from the Humanworkshop website.
