Spitfire Audio has announced the release of Sable Volume 2, a string library for Native Instruments Kontakt.
Spitfire are delighted to release the hotly anticipated second volume in our detailed new String library. Volume 2 contains the Violin 2 section (providing you with a smaller totally different group of violinists, sat in a different position to give you a true orchestral spread), Viola and Bass sections, and between volumes 1 and 2 you have an incredibly beautiful and dynamic, responsive collection of players.
Each section is fully controllable individually, and is recorded with 7 mic positions, through rare and classic mics in one of the greatest recording studios in the world, through Neve ‘Montserrat’ mic pres and then on through the Neve 88R onto tape, and finally through Prism converters into Protools at 96k. We present the library in Kontakt 4.2.4 and higher format (FULL VERSION OF KONTAKT REQUIRED) at 48k, 24bit.
The sample library is available to purchase for the introductory price of £299 GBP until May 14th, 2013 (regular £399 GBP). Prices ex VAT.
Hammered Acoustic Guitar (HAG) is the result of “playing” an Ibanez AE acoustic guitar with drum sticks and brushes. In order to make it punchy and powerful we used two steel strings and tuned them to same pitch. This way we could maintain a slight modulation of the sound, a beat frequency.
But we did not stop after recording single notes. In fact, we have expanded the concept and did additional recording sessions dedicated to percussion and effect sounds. Especially the FX content is heavily processed and offers great material for musical sound design. Check out the special features of each package in the tab menu below. Also, you shouldn’t miss to take a closer look at the patch list.

Samplephonics has released 909, a multi-sampled drum hits sound library.
The Kontakt version of Samplephonics 909 comes with a custom sequencer.
Expect to find over 4000 24 Bit Wav samples, meticulously sampled through two inputs, one clean, and one through a Thermionic Culture ‘Culture Vulture’ to provide some real analogue tube warmth and extra beef!
This sample library is available to download with a deeply scripted sequencer for Kontakt 5 (please note the full version of Kontakt 5 is required to run this and the instrument only works in demo mode with the Kontakt Free Player.) Create, copy, paste and edit patterns and even play live. We’ve kept many features true to the original (and added a few more necessities) and we believe this to be the closest software equivelent to the real thing.
Take your music back to it’s roots and inject some truly authentic drum samples into your next production. The 909 is back!
