Orange Tree Samples releases Paradise Marimba for Kontakt

Orange Tree Samples has launched Paradise Marimba, a marimba instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Orange Tree Samples Paradise Marimba

Paradise Marimba was developed in collaboration with Chris Poehler of Lujon Audio. The marimba in this library was specifically selected for its warm, full sustain. The lowest two octaves of the marimba were additionally sampled with softer bass marimba mallets as an alternate option to the standard mallets. These bass marimba mallets are designed for ambient, cinematic music.

Paradise Marimba accompanies Orange Tree Samples’ Pure Jazz Vibes sample library, also recorded at WaterSound Productions, in Studio City, California. As with the vibraphone library, Michael Aarvold engineered the session.

Paradise Marimba features

  • 3.9 GB of 24-bit samples.
  • Up to 11x round-robin with four dynamics, chromatically sampled.
  • Playable rolls.
  • Separate close, mid, and far mic signals.
  • Alternate bass marimba mallets, muted hit articulation.

The library is available for the introductory price of $79 USD until until September 30th, 2014 (regular $99 USD). Requires full retail version of Native Instruments Kontakt 4/5.

Spitfire launches Producer Portfolio series of Kontakt libraries

Spitfire Audio has announced the launch of its new Producer Portfolio range of sound libraries.

With Spitfire’s existing orchestral and definitive ranges, we’re very proud of the “impression” that the hall at Air studios gives, but it’s not right for every application.

With this new range, we have recorded in smaller spaces, close, mid range and room perspectives with carefully positioned, fine, ‘A class’ mics and pres to give you the raw materials you need to make these sounds your own, and at an affordable price.

Spitfire Producer Portfolio

Producer Portfolio features

  • Analogue Foundry #1 Pylons – A definitive collection of phrases, squeaks, bleeps, hits and FX from their enormous selection of classic vintage synths.
  • Kitchenware #1 – Metal – Sampled from 12 specially selected (with a variety of both simple and complex harmonic sonority) bowls, jugs and cups, this new sound-set will provide you with hours of inspiration.
  • Frank Ricotti – Marimba – Ricotti Marimba features 7.6 GB of compressed content from over 11,700 samples, over 24.5 GB samples in WAV format (this losslessly compresses very efficiently in Kontakt!)

The libraries are available to purchase at a 20% introductory discount until December 4th, 2013. Requires Kontakt 4.2.4 or higher, full version.
