Paper Stone Instruments has announced the release of Bounce, a free instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt.
‘Bounce’ is one of the most unique elements of ‘Creative Junk’ our organic percussion suite, created from everyday objects that were carefully selected for their tone and character.
Exercise balls, basket balls, table tennis balls, footballs and others were recorded using 3 mic positions in our Cinematic live room.
The fun begins by switching ‘Global’ to ‘Local’, which allows each note to be sculpted individually, meaning each bounce can have it’s own mic position/level, pitch, pan and filter setting.
If you enjoy this freebie, please check out the full ‘Creative Junk’ collection where you will find a goldmine of unique hits, quirky transients and inspirational tones sub divided into the following nkis: Gamelan, Kit, Industrial, Jugs, Bottles, Transients, Foley.
Bounce is available to download from Sampleism.

Paper Stone Instruments has launched Creative Junk, an experimental and tuned percussion collection for Native Instruments Kontakt.
The Instrument was recorded in the revered Studio 2 live room of Paper Stone Studios, Nottingham, England, using purely audiophile quality signal paths. Our most ambitious, comprehensive and versatile offering to date, Creative Junk is a goldmine of unique hits, quirky sounds, and inspirational tones, all multi-sampled in our converted cinema auditorium live room.
“When I’m writing I’m always looking for inspirational sounds, I want sounds that haven’t been created by conventional instruments and seek out unusual or abstract objects to manipulate and sample. I wanted to create a collection of these objects that would be sampled with multiple mic positions, and give them an interface that would allow each sound to be tuned filtered and sculpted independently of one another.” -Sam Brown Paper Stone Studios
