Rhythmic Robot Kontakt instruments hand-built from the dusty relics of the past
Rhythmic Robot has launched its website, offering a range of sample libraries for Native Instruments Kontakt.
Rhythmic Robot is a small enterprise making Kontakt .nki instruments. Our mission is to take the technology of yesterday and bring it sparking and crackling back to life on our laboratory bench – before capturing its essence, bottling it in Kontakt .nki form, and sending it out for you to play with. We sample characterful old vintage gear, and we also build our own Kontakt soft synths from the unlikeliest components – like stacks of Stylophones, or a humming wall of malfunctioning valve signal generators…
Our hand-crafted Kontakt instruments are built on meticulously recorded 24-bit multisamples of authentic old kit. On top of that, we add extra functionality like giving old-school drum machines velocity switching, pan pots, and individual level controls, or making monosynths polyphonic. We wire in the tools you need to tame the sounds or rough them up: tube distortion, compression, bit-crushing lo-fi effects and lots more are right at your fingertips. And finally we wrap the whole thing up in a custom interface so you can tweak away to your heart’s content. We love our dusty old boxes, and hope you will too.
Rhythmic Robot sample libraries are available to purchase starting at £3.95 GBP.
