MrTheBigMan has released Dust: Skanner, a free sample library featuring soundscapes and drones made with the Skanner Reaktor ensemble by Native Instruments.

But it went below the radar for some as it became another Reaktor monster with a learning curve.
Not for MrTheBigMan.
This new package contains some of the best sounds this synth has to offer across pad sounds that would make users of Padded Cell cry and multi-samples recorded meticulously to bring you some of the best premium sample sounds for free.

100 pad sounds over 32 bars.
10 Bass sounds sampled at c1-c4.

Total of 612 samples, 720 MB content.
