8Dio releases Ukulele Bundle for Kontakt

Related: , , , Posted in news on Aug 11, 2014 - comment 0 comments

8Dio has announced the release of the Ukulele Bundle, comprising the Ukulele Solo and Ukulele Strummer instrument libraries for Native Instruments Kontakt.

8Dio Ukulele Bundle

The Solo Ukulele contains over 2.200 samples and we recorded the Uku in great details, including hundreds of natural fret and release noises. In addition we also recorded natural strum samples, so you can play chords with natural true strum sounds. 8Dio Ukulele Solo comes with 15 core patches divided into Fingered, Thumber and Morphed categories. The fingered category was recorded with dedicated four-finger position for realistic sound for advanced playing styles (ex. arppegiations) – whereas the thumbed category has a slightly softer sound, which gives the Ukulele a somewhat softer, warmer character. The morphed category contains the Ukulele mixed with other instruments (ex. Grand Piano, Tonal Percussion and other modified instruments designed to match the character of the Ukulele.

Ukulele Strummer is the follow-up to our Ukulele Solo library. The Ukulele Strummer contains over 4.734 samples spread across 13 different chord types and 13 common rhythm types. All the chords and rhythms can seamlessly be blended using our x-legato technology. The X-legato system allows you to combine any chord and rhythm at any given time giving you an infinite amount of combinations. In addition the Ukulele Strummer is a round-robin based strum library, so even if you trigger the same chord/rhythm multiple times – you will get natural subtle variation. The Ukulele Strummer also contains chords in perfect 5th – allowing you to shape virtually any chord by combining it with our Ukulele Solo library.

The Ukulele Solo and Ukulele Strummer both contains our new CHAOS FX 3.0 system, which contains a variety of additional FX controls, including macro controls, filter, EQ, bit-crusher, distortion, new stereo delay and two separate convolution reverbs, Transform and Reverb. Transform adds experimental convolutions to your arsenal and Reverb contains a collection of superior impulses in case you want more traditional reverb. Everything comes integrated – one click away from your mastery.

The bundle is available for purchase for $149 USD.

Particular-Sound releases Abstract Grooves 2 for Kontakt

Particular-Sound has released Abstract Grooves 2, an element loop collection made mainly out of granular samples using Native Instrument Kontakt.

Particular-Sound Abstract Grooves 2

Every loop was recorded in 24-bit/44.1kHz and sliced in the Kontakt Sampler to use them in your tracks.

Add your own kicks, snares or claps to the loops without changing the loop itself, this is possible because we left the space free in the element loops.

To make the package complete, we made 75 Multis. Multis are layered Loops using the engine from the Kontakt Sampler by adding different effects.

Abstract Grooves 2 features

  • 150 Main Element Loops (WAV Format).
  • 75 Multis.
  • Requires Kontakt v5.3.137 or higher.

The library is a free download, as part of the KVR Developer Challenge 2014.

Rhythmic Robot releases NanoMod 8-bit for Kontakt

Rhythmic Robot has launched NanoMod 8-bit, a free instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Rhythm Robot NanoMod 8-bit

NanoMod 8-bit is a simple but versatile Kontakt synthesiser based on vintage 8-bit polysynths, featuring an “intelligent” interface that allows the user to adjust multiple parameters with single controls. It is offered as part of the KVR Developers’ Challenge 2014.

NanoMod 8-bit brings the simplicity of Rhythmic Robot’s NanoMod interface to bear on the crusty, gritty, aliased sounds of classic 8-bit synthesisers of the early to mid 80s. Using source waves taken from vintage Ensoniq hardware and a front-end incorporating convolved Wasp and MS20 filters, this NanoMod is aimed squarely at big, powerful polysynth sounds – everything from warm and evolving pads to screaming leads.

The library is a free download, released as an entry to the KVR Developer Challenge 2014.
