Fluffy Audio has announced Aurora, a cinematic and hybrid instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt, featuring dozens of soundsets, loadable through an internal browsing system.
AURORA enables you to layer up to 5 different soundsets to make complex sounds on the fly. AURORA features a new engine that enables the user to experiment modulation on different parameters: you can, for example, automate the cutoff of a filter with a step modulator to simulate a vibrato.
Every soundset in AURORA provides some of the versatility of a classical synthesizer combined with the quality of sampled wave sets. We carefully sampled lots of different acoustic material like timpanis, toy pianos, bells, self-made instruments, hand made percussions and, for long soundsets, we used a custom chain of sound design tools to realize soundscapes, drones and pads from acoustic and synthesized sources.
4.2 GB Sample library (compressed in Kontakt’s NCW Format).
3.227 Samples (44Khz/24Bit).
200+ NKI Presets.
More than 150 unique sound sources (multisampled instruments).
Build your unique patches by layering up to 5 layers of sound sources.
Total control over the sound sources.
Arpeggiator and Polystep modes.
13 different modulators avaiable for complex sounds that can change at specific time intervals or on user’s input.
Synced Delay, Step Modulator and LFOs.
5 different modulation shapes for LFOs (SINE, SAWTOOTH, TRIANGLE, SQUARE and RANDOM).
Unique chain of custom effects.
18 unique Convolution IRs.
The library will be released on October 20th, 2013. An introductory price of $169 USD / 125 EUR (regular $199 USD / 149 EUR) is available until October 31st, 2013.
Fluffy Audio has released My Log Drum, a free primitive sounding percussion instrument for Native Instruments Kontakt.
My Log Drum features 2 different playing “beaters”: mallet and fingers.
The log drum, also called Slit Drum, is an idiophone usually carved in wood or constructed in a resonant wooden box. On the surface there are some woodden tongues that can be struct to play a simple melody.
Our instrument is a “vintage” version of the most common log drum in commerce. It was used for years before we could get our hands on it. Some toungues were not perfectly in tune, and there was a small crack on a tongue that made the instrument to “sizzle” on strong beats. But… we felt its sound lovely and authentic and we hope you will enjoy its sound too.
My Log Drum is a free download for Kontakt 4.2.4+ (full version required).
Fluffy Audio has introduced My Vibes, a deeply sampled vibraphone sound library for Native Instruments Kontakt.
With 3 different mallets, 2 mic positions, 6 layers for short articulations, and 3x round robin, it is one of the most accurate vibraphone libraries ever. The user-friendly interface allows you to customize the sound of the vibraphone to fit in different musical contexts.
In real mode My Vibes reacts like a real vibraphone, while in piano-like mode you can play the vibraphone like a piano.
My Vibes features
1.6 Gb NCW compressed sample pool.
2 different mic positions.
3 different mallet types.
3 velocity layers layers for long articulations.
6 velocity layers for short articulations.
3x Round Robin.
Equalizer, Reverb with custom IRs.
Full velocity control.
Simple Attack/ Release controls.
2 different playing modes.
Fast load/switching between mics and mallets.
The sample library is available to purchase for 69 EUR / $89 USD.
Fluffy Audio has released My Piano, an upright piano sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt.
My Piano is a warm upright piano sample library for Native Instruments’ Kontakt designed for cinematic soundtracks, intimate jazz and classical impressionist-like music. There are special and unique controls for different parts of the piano, for the internal resonances, pedal sound and there’s even a knob to put some random noises into the recording.
The samples were taken with AudioTechnica AT4060 tube microphones, with NEVE preamps, to ensure the highest quality and warmth. The pedal resonances are handled separately, as well as the overtones and the body resonance of the piano, to allow the user to have a complete control over the piano sound.
My Piano features
1.70 GB installed (compressed with in NCW format).
24 bit / 44.1kHz stereo (scaled from 192Khz).
More than 6 velocity layers per key.
Sympathetic Resonances and Pedal Resonance control for maximum control over instrument warmth.
Release Samples included.
Equalizer, compressor, reverb and special Position Controls to fit the piano in every mix.
Complete control over velocity response.
Self Masking for polyphony control.
Decay controls for tuning note fading to you needs.
Separate pedal down resonances and pedal noise control.
Special Piano Body IR for realistic emulation of the internal resonances of the piano body.
Nice occasional crackles knob to emulate the realism of a live recording.
The sample library is available to purchase for 59 EUR / $69 USD.
Fluffy Audio has introduced AudioTrap, a plugin which is able to capture a small chunk of audio from your favourite DAW and play with it in a number of different ways.

Low CPU utilization.
Sampler mode for playing melodies from a single captured sample.
Slicer mode for constructing time cuts, breaks and stutters or to create variations of a rythmic pattern.
Intuitive UI for effective usability.
ADSR Filter for amplitude envelope control.
Engine Optimized with support to SSE2 instructions.
