Sonokinetic has launched Toll, a collection of historical bells for Native Instruments Kontakt.
Way back when, when Sonokinetic was in its infant stage, we recorded two carillons and turned them into a simple kontakt instrument. Ever since, we have felt the urge to revisit that, and do it with the knowledge and experience we have gained over the past years. That time has come, and this time it is not just a carillon, but a large collection of different sized bells, from various periods and places of origin.
Each hit on these bells will spark a very unique and authentic sound that can only be generated by pure weight and age. Sonokinetic sampled historical valuable bronze cast bells as old as a 1000 years, proceeded through the ages of innovation in bell casting and tuning and ended in our time of hi-tech computer calibrated pitch perfect bells, and sampled all of those with great attention to detail, preserving their original tails of up to 30 seconds.
- 1 patch Kontakt 4 and Kontakt 5, 4 Main Bell categories:
- Carillons: two Carillons, played hard and soft.
- Historical Bells Collection: 15 European Original Bells from 14th century to 20th century.
- Silk Road Bells Collection: 13 South East Asian Ceremonial Bells 10th century to 19th century.
- Tower Bells Collection: 3 Tower bells, including the Saint John’s Cathedral bells.
- 4 matching Impulse responses “Chapel”, “Cathedral”, “Temple” and “Summit”.
- Kontakt Convolution Reverb.

Sonokinetic has released Carillon, a free sampled instrument for Kontakt.
Sonokinetic sampled two original 17th century carillons. Two, one octave bell systems in two velocity layers. Since you can only play hard and soft on these instruments we’re bound to only these two dynamic spectrums.
But we feel this instrument has a very original and authentic sound. Since all these instruments are tuned in an old tuning system we had to tweak the sample a little to make ‘m fit better in our modern contemperd tuning system. The big Carillon was originally build in Antwerp in 1635. The small Carillon was build in 1724 in Amsterdam. Both bell systems have been placed in the main church towers of these cities. After WWII these carillons have been moved to a museum. Which gave us the best acoustic environment to record these unique sounds for you.

- Two kontakt 4.1 patches: Carillon big & Carillon small.
- 70 wave files. 48kHz / 24 bit.
- 207MB content.
