Sampleism intros LS Small Percussion free Unusual Percussion for Kontakt by LS Samples

LS Samples LS Small Percussion

Sampleism has announced the release of LS Small Percussion, a free percussion Kontakt library by LS Samples.

Hey there! This is my first publicly available sampled instrument – and it’s a freebie! The LS Small Percussion library for KONTAKT 4.2.4+ contains three more or less unusual percussive instruments: A set of premium maple and hickory drumsticks, an original african shaker, and a rusty old iron plate treated with a hammer.

Thanks to a little KSP scripting, each instrument has a custom UI, multiple velocity layers, and up to six customizable Round Robin samples. The sticks even have an entire second sample pool for extended realism. These instruments are great for sound design, and may just come in handy for when you need that little extra bit on your percussive ventures…

LS Small Percussion
LS Small Percussion with custom Kontakt interface.

LS Small Percussion features

  • 16.7 MB zipped, 52 MB unpacked.
  • 180 single samples, open .wav format (+30 unused samples).
  • 48 Khz @ 24 bit.
  • 3 instruments, 4 .nki s (for Kontakt 4.2.4 and up).

The sample library is a free download for registered Sampleism users (registration is free).
