Cinematique Instruments has announced the launch of its new website, including two new free instruments.
We are glad to announce the relaunch of our website.
The new site has a strong and cool design and works perfectly on desktop computers as well as on mobile machines. Now, everything is cleanded up and spacious. Besides, as a bonus we are offering two more free instruments!
The free Junk Drum (Toy Drum generator) and Guiro instruments are available to download for Native Instruments Kontakt.
Sonic Mechanics has launched Classic Guitar Licks, a compilation of loops, including a custom Kontakt 4 instrument and Stylus RMX compatible Rx2 files.
The pack is bursting with authentic guitar flavour and the loops cover a multitude of guitar playing styles and rhythms. Included is a custom Kontakt instrument allowing for easy on the fly remixing of the chopped loops to cover all genres of music.
For this project the SM team enlisted the help of a professional guitarist who created and worked with the team to produce a unique loop collection.
The collection comprises of 140 Kontakt instrument files, 140 Rex2 files, 140 processed Wav loops and 140 clean Wav loops.
The sample pack costs £24.95 GBP. Individual formats are available starting at £14.95 GBP.
Big Fish Audio has released the Vintage Vibe sample library, a collection of multi-sampled instruments that captures the great retro sounds of classic Rock, R&B, Soul, Funk, Country, and Jazz tracks from the 1960s and 1970s.
The list of instruments ranges from rare, collectible, and even one-of-a-kind pieces to cheap knock-offs and banged-up stuff found in junkyards. Instruments weren’t included just because they were rare or expensive. Instead, they were chosen because they sounded cool, and had a unique character: a “vibe” that’s often absent from the “meticulously recorded, “pristine” sampled instruments of today.
The drum sets in VINTAGE VIBE are live and open: snares crack and ring and toms thunder, untamed by gates or compressors. Keyboards were sampled clean and through old amps, yielding sounds ranging from “classic” to “borderline psychotic” (see the Filthy Wurlitzer patch). Basses and guitars were set-up to replicate a variety of retro sounds and styles from many musical genres. And for good measure, we even included a psychedelic staple of the late 1960′s, the electric sitar.
The sound library is available for Kontakt Player 5 and as a ReFill, priced at $199.95 USD.
Sonokinetic has launched Accordion, an accordion sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt.
The accordion is an instrument that has been on our ‘to do’ list for quite some time. The instrument can provide you with a very nice ‘couleur locale’ whenever you need to give a song that French twist. The accordion brings a breath of fresh air and evokes feelings of romance, passion and nostalgia.
As with other Sonokinetic instruments, we focused on getting a ‘real’ sound instead of a ‘perfect’ sound, as you can hear from the demo tracks skilfully created by our demo composers. We are very proud of the finished product and believe that it will empower lots of people to make MIDI recorded accordion tracks that sound like they were played under a bridge along the river Seine.
Time+Space has announced it is now shipping ProjectSAM’s Lumina, a sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt.
ProjectSAM is well-known for its ensemble recording concept, and this third volume in the critically acclaimed Symphobia series trumps this with even finer arrangements.
The warmth and beauty of orchestra and choir performing together has been captured in stunning, playable ensembles. Moreover, Lumina is packed with superbly orchestrated textures covering the full spectrum of fantasy and mystery. Refined with grand piano, harp and percussion, these recordings are truly luminous.
Lumina’s solo and guest instruments range from legato woodwinds, such as oboe and clarinet, to a beautifully sampled Celtic harp, tin whistle and a full bell tower! The library also pays homage to the playful world of cartoons with dedicated ensembles and phrases for careful tiptoeing and tongue-in-cheek suspense.
Of course you will find ProjectSAM´s popular Dystopia section, too, with all-new sound design based on Lumina’s samples.
Lumina is available to purchase on a USB stick from Time+Space, priced at RRP £840 GBP / €995 EUR (inc VAT).
Prizm Audio has released Selected Tones, a collection of 51 Kontakt 5 instruments created using sounds from the Electronisounds sample vault.
SampleScience chose his favorite multi-samples and enhanced them with Kontakt’s built-in effects and sound shapers. Almost all of these multi-samples were taken from real, hardware analog synths.
The result is 51 Kontakt instruments covering various types of tones including: genuine analog basses, resonant pianos, spacey synthetic atmospheres, cut through leads, textured pads, vibrant ethnic instruments, rich organs, deep electric pianos and more!
This is a collection of sounds suited for the discerning electronic music composer.
The sample library is available from Sampleism for £9.99 GBP.
