Precisionsound Andes 25F

Precisionsound has launched Andes 25F, a virtual instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt and Logic EXS24.

The Andes 25F looks like a Melodion but it’s really a high-pitched panpipe organ with a sound between a panpipe and an ocarina. Instead of reeds, this instrument has pipes. It’s clear and sweet voice is great for contemporary acoustic music yet also suits medieval styles. Our scripted version for Kontakt 3+ offers ways to play and tweak the instrument beyond its natural limits.

  • Individually sampled notes, key up and down noises, and release samples.
  • 4 round robins.
  • 400 stereo 24-bit WAV samples.
  • Playable range of C3 – C6 inclusive, extended from the natural range of F3–F5.
  • 1 program for NI Kontakt 3+ with scripted performance controls and GUI.
  • 3 programs for NI Kontakt 2+.
  • 3 programs for EXS24.

The library is available for purchase for $29 USD. A DVD version costs an additional $9.95 USD. All formats are included. Requires full version of Kontakt.

Precisionsound releases Jetstream: sound design workstation for Kontakt

Precisionsound Jetstream

Precisionsound has released Jetstream, a sound design workstation for Kontakt.

Packing a library of environmental, electronic and mechanical loops into a single instrument, Jetstream generates a diverse array of ambiences, drones, sweeps and hits.

Users can layer and transform sounds with multiple filters, extensive modulations, and creative impulse responses. Custom mastering effects are built in for shaping tone, space, and dynamics.

Precisionsound founder, Lars Westin, said: “Jetstream makes sound design for music and media fast and intuitive. It’s easy to create stunning sounds for any project, from airy textures to spooky strikes, naturalistic environments, and even chromatic synths.”

Jetstream is the brainchild of Iain Morland, a sound designer for film, theatre, games and virtual instruments, and whose credits for Precisionsound include the Sonic Laboratory and Exosphere sound effects libraries.

Jetstream features

  • 50 original sound loops (254MB).
  • 32 unique impulse responses (29MB).
  • Intuitive colour-coded interface for sound design.
  • 65 professionally designed presets.
  • 44.1kHz 24-bit stereo WAV throughout.

Jetstream for Kontakt is available as a download for $39 USD. Requires the full version of Kontakt 3 or above.

Precisionsound releases Analog Performer SFX

Precisionsound Analog Performer SFX

Precisionsound has introduced Analog Performer SFX, a suite of electronic sound effects ranging from glitchy blips to screaming rips, noise strikes to harmonic ripples, laughing androids to alien birdcalls, all created with analog hardware.

The library was crafted from exclusive performances by Phil Thornton on his vintage Moog Source synthesiser, complemented by his Korg MS-20/MS-50 modular system and Korg SQ-10 analog sequencer. A bonus suite of remixed effects pushes into further sonic terrain, including sweeps, risers, and hybrid textures.

Precisionsound founder, Lars Westin, said: “Analog Performer SFX will add colour and chaos to your productions. The combination of synth programming and live improvisation gives this library an unmistakable character – hovering between vintage sci-fi and futuristic electronica – that can’t be matched by software synths or computer-based sequencing.”

Phil Thornton is a best-selling ambient artist whose production and performance credits include Sinéad O’Connor, Arthur Brown, Hossam Ramzy, and Expandis.

Analog Performer SFX features

  • 385 raw synth sounds (709MB total).
  • 155 hybrid remixed sounds (586MB total).
  • 1.26GB uncompressed size.
  • Individual sounds from 300ms to 1m25sec in duration.
  • 44.1kHz 24-bit stereo WAV throughout.

Analog Performer SFX is available to purchase for $49 USD.

Precisionsound releases Multimonica II sample library

Precisionsound Multimonica II

Precisionsound has announced the Multimonica II, a sample library featuring a vintage analog synthesizer that combines vacuum tube synthesis with a fan-powered reed organ, and is equally at home in electronic and acoustic music.

The Hohner Multimonica II was designed by the German engineer Harald Bode in the mid-1950s. A predecessor to the Clavioline tube synthesizer, the Multimonica II combined vacuum tube synthesis with a fan-driven reed organ.

We sampled both the synthesizer and organ sections of the Multimonica II, capturing every setting and register for each note on the original instrument. After fine-tuning and seamlessly looping the samples, we rebuilt the Multimonica II within virtual samplers for use in your music.

For the synth section, you get the true sound of the analog instrument with huge improvements in control and stability, way beyond what’s possible with the real thing.

Multimonica II features

  • 205 stereo and 350 mono 24-bit WAV samples.
  • 8 multisampled synthesizer settings.
  • 5 multisampled accordion-style registers.
  • 2 programs for NI Kontakt 3-5 with scripted performance controls and GUI.
  • 14 programs for NI Kontakt 2.
  • 20 programs for Logic EXS24.
  • 13 programs for SoundFont.
  • The total size of the library compressed is 345 MB.

Multimonica II is available to purchase for $59 USD (CD/DVD backup for additional $9.95 USD or/and digital backup for $3.95 USD). All formats are included when you buy Multimonica II.

Precisionsound releases Naeshult Table Piano for Kontakt & EXS24

Precisionsound Naeshult Table Piano

Precisionsound has released the Naeshult Table Piano, a virtual instrument sample library for Kontakt and EXS24.

These so-called table pianos, or piano harps, were made in Småland in the south of Sweden from about 1880 until 1929, when the manufacturing plant was burnt. During this period there was a use for self-playing instruments in schools, churches, and other groups. You could call them “sing-along machines of the 1800s”. Naturally, the demand declined in conjunction with the introduction of gramophone records.

Now, a hundred years later, Precisionsound have taken this limited but charming contraption and made it a flexible and playable instrument for software samplers. Their aim was to honour the instrument’s original characteristics – the clapping of the clubs, the sonorous sound of the strings coming out of the box.

Naeshult Table Piano features

  • 459 stereo 24-bit WAV samples.
  • Chromatic string samples.
  • Percussive hammer samples.
  • Mechanical crank samples.
  • 4 programs for Kontakt 2.
  • 1 scripted program for Kontakt 3+ and above.
  • 4 programs for EXS24.
  • 1.50 GB total uncompressed size.

The sample library costs $49 USD.
