Cinesamples releases CineBells for Kontakt

Cinesamples has announced CineBells, a sound library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Cinesamples Cinebells

Here we present a focused, tidy collection of intimately-recorded, overdub ready, pitched happiness. A sizable 10GB (at compressed NI NCW) collection of pitched bells, dulcimers and keyboards specifically designed to construct tonal groove elements. For years we’ve been subjected to typical cinematic grooves composed of various small percussive elements; sticks, logs, shakers, claves, tambourines, finger cymbals, and other unpitched toys – yet there was an obvious lack of pitched counterparts.

Partially inspired by the tasty tonal percussion overdub tracks on Radiohead’s “No Surprises” and Green Day’s “Wake Me Up When September Ends,” we set out to produce a library which could easily camouflage itself in any track of any genre. Aside from applying the production techniques of modern sampling, we had to take special care taming these incredibly verbal instruments; especially the mallet keyboards as they have the power to drown out an entire orchestra in a hall setting.

Using a combination of instrument treatments, mellow mallets, small pencil condensers and elite Class-A outboard gear (Lexicon PCM 91, Avalon 2055 EQ, Waves L2 Hardware Limiter, Manley Variable Mu), we were able to capture an incredibly usable mix. You will hear a tremendously clean signal featuring perfectly smooth transients, transparent highs, warm mids and tastefully rolled-off lows, with just enough ambience to prevent sterility. We’ve also included true mono; a single microphone (not a faked, stereo fold down) as it would be used in 90% of these types of situations in the studio. We have captured an authentic and familiar sound – that your client will hopefully feel rather than notice outright when they hear your cues.

CineBells features

  • 12 patches of unique and useful instruments.
  • 2 Mix Options.
  • High-Quality Signal Chain:
    • Lexicon PCM 91
    • Avalon 2055 EQ
    • Waves L2 Hardware Limiter
    • Manley Variable Mu
  • 9.97 GB – NCW Compressed.
  • Multiple Dynamic Layers, Round Robin Articulations.
  • Requires Full Version of Kontakt 4.2.3 or higher.
  • Produced by Mike Barry, Mike Patti, and Dan Negovan; Programmed and Scripted by Blake Robinson; engineered by Brian Dixon.

CineBells is available to purchase for the introductory price of $99 USD (regular $129 USD).

Cinesamples releases Piano in Blue for Kontakt

Cinesamples has released Piano in Blue, a grand piano sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Cinesamples Piano in Blue

We were provided a unique opportunity to preserve an important piece of musical history in its final days. Word had come to us that the historic Clinton Recording Studios in midtown Manhattan was forever closing its doors, destined to be transformed into a modern condominium complex.

One of the many treasures contained therein was this particular Steinway Model D Concert Grand which used to live in the Columbia Records 30th Street Studios. The CBS 30th Street Studio, “The Church” was perhaps the most influential recording studio of the 50’s and 60’s producing dozens of legendary albums in various genres.

Of those recordings this piano played a critical role in two albums which are still considered among the finest recordings of all time. First being the original Glenn Gould “Goldberg Variations,” the most critically received classical album of all time. Four years later came Miles Davis’ “Kind of Blue” which forever altered music.

In 1981 Columbia closed its doors and this piano was brought to Clinton. In addition to the grand two of the original Columbia Nuemann U49 microphones made the journey also. These were two of the five (or six) microphones originally used on the Kind of Blue date. We were fortunate enough to sample this special grand using these two original microphones.

Piano in Blue features

  • 1949 Steinway D via Neve 8078 Console.
  • 8 Velocity Layers Sampled Chromatically.
  • 9300 Samples.
  • 3 Microphone Positions.
  • Close/Vintage – 2x Neumann M49 near the lid.
  • Mid – 2x B&K 4007 at the tail of the piano.
  • Far – 2x Sennheiser MKH20′s in the hall.
  • 2 Processing Paths (Tape; Direct in).
  • Studer A800MKIII 24 Track Analog Tape Machine.
  • Programmed by Sam Estes; scripted by Greg Schlaepfer; recorded by Tim Starnes.

Piano in Blue is available to purchase for the introductory price of $99 USD (regular $129 USD).
