Mahmoud Altaf releases free Egyptian Darabuka Lite for Kontakt & EXS24

Mahmoud Altaf has announced the release of Egyptian Darabuka Lite, a free darbuka instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt and Logic EXS24.

Mahmoud Altaf Egyptian Darabuka Lite

This is a sample library of a beautiful Darabuka that I’ve received as a gift and thought it would make a great addition to use in my projects, especially since I’ve sampled certain articulations that I mostly use. This Darabuka was recorded with 4 dynamic layers per articulation and with 2 dynamic layers for the rolls. I haven’t recorded any RRs, but you’ll find that there are enough articulations and velocity layers to create a fairly realistic performance with it.

The Darabuka was captured in mono using the AKG 420 Perception microphone, which really brought out the clarity of the instrument while retaining the body. I’ve included a MIDI file performance using the instrument, which will give you an idea of how to use the instrument.

I’ll be further expanding on this instrument in the future by recording lots of Round Robins than I originally did, more articulations, and a couple more mic positions. In the meantime, please enjoy using this simple but articulate instrument!

Egyptian Darabuka Lite features

  • Kontakt Full v5.3.1 or higher (For Kontakt Version, Kontakt PLAYER version is NOT available).
  • Logic Pro 9 or higher required to run the EXS24 version.
  • 4 Dynamic Layers per Main Articulation & 2 Dynamic Layers per Roll & Hit.
  • Contains 12 samples in 44.1 / 24 bit Mono WAV & NCW lossless compression format.
  • 4.33 MB download size.

The library is a free downloat at Mahmoud Altaf.

Precisionsound Andes 25F

Precisionsound has launched Andes 25F, a virtual instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt and Logic EXS24.

The Andes 25F looks like a Melodion but it’s really a high-pitched panpipe organ with a sound between a panpipe and an ocarina. Instead of reeds, this instrument has pipes. It’s clear and sweet voice is great for contemporary acoustic music yet also suits medieval styles. Our scripted version for Kontakt 3+ offers ways to play and tweak the instrument beyond its natural limits.

Andes 25F features

  • Individually sampled notes, key up and down noises, and release samples.
  • 4 round robins.
  • 400 stereo 24-bit WAV samples.
  • Playable range of C3 – C6 inclusive, extended from the natural range of F3–F5.
  • 1 program for NI Kontakt 3+ with scripted performance controls and GUI.
  • 3 programs for NI Kontakt 2+.
  • 3 programs for EXS24.

The library is available for purchase for $29 USD. A DVD version costs an additional $9.95 USD. All formats are included. Requires full version of Kontakt.

Puremagnetik releases Kardoni ARP Omni sound library

Puremagnetik Kardoni

Puremagnetik has released Kardoni, a sample library of programs that delivers the legendary ARP Omni Mk2 right to your desktop.

As one of the most prolific and versatile “stringers” of the late 1970s, the ARP Omni has polyphonic Violin, Viola, Bass and Cello waveforms. It is split into 3 sections: Strings, Synthesizer and Bass synth – all simultaneously available.

To emulate the original synthesizer, a restored ARP Omni was expertly recorded, voice by voice, and reverse engineered for Ableton Live, Kontakt and Logic. It even includes the famous chorus, phaser and hollow waveform sounds.

The Ableton Live and Logic versions come with individual “Voice Modules” libraries alongside sound designed programs. The Live version gives you additional controls to shape and construct the individual voices, hollow waveform and chorus/phaser selections – just like on the original.

The Kontakt version of Kardoni includes a completely reverse engineered Omni emulation. All from within the Kontakt UI, the string voicings, hollow waveform, phaser, chorus, bass and synth can be tweaked to complete your retro synthesizer satisfaction!

Kardoni is available in Ableton Live, Kontakt & Logic formats, priced at $15 USD.
