Indiginus releases Bar Chimes for Kontakt

Related: , , , Posted in news on Oct 24, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Indiginus has launched Bar Chimes, an instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt 4 and 5.

Indiginus Bar Chimes

Our versatile Bar Chimes sample library allows you to play sweeps, or glisses, in real time, rather than relying on pre-recorded performances. You can also use the automated GlissMaker, where you can adjust the speed and strength of your sweeps.

If you want to play melodically, the included Bar Chimes Celesta sounds enchanting! Or disturbing. You decide.

The library is available for purchase for $15 USD. It is also included in the Brio Percussion Ensemble library. Requires the full retail version of Kontakt 4 or 5.

Versilian Studios releases Tubular Bells

Versilian Studios Tubular Bells

Versilian Studios has announced Tubular Bells, a sampled instrument for Windows.

Tubular Bells, otherwise known as Orchestra Chimes or Orchestra Bells, are a member of the percussion family often used to emulate the sound of church bells. It’s use is broad- everything from “epic orchestral” to concert band music and more.

This particular set has been deep-sampled to provide excellent playability and reasonably good sound quality, certainly good enough for any project. There is a very large dynamic range on the instrument, allowing it to ring out above the orchestra as it truly would, or sink behind quietly to just accent the flow of the piece. The chimes’ delays were recorded up to 10 seconds; pressing down the sustain pedal will unleash the full resonance of the chimes.

Tubular Bells features

  • c. 1 1/2 Octaves of chromatic sampling.
  • 2x Borrowed RR and 5 Velocity Layers.
  • Compact GUI to minimize screen space.
  • Faux Vibrato effect for spooky music.

Tubular Bells for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) is available to purchase for $10 USD.
