Sonokinetic releases Grosso for Kontakt & Kontakt Player

Sonokinetic has announced the release of Grosso, a virtual orchestral instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt and Kontakt Player.

Sonokinetic Grosso

With Grosso, Sonokinetic BV is changing the paradigm for orchestral phrase-based instruments… again! Before our Minimal library, the level of control, whilst retaining the authentic sound that live recordings bring to the party, was unheard of. We have gotten so much positive feedback on Minimal that a ‘sequel’ was unavoidable. Mere sequels is not what we do though at Sonokinetic, so if you look at what Grosso brings to the table, you will see an evolved entity that is a homo-sapiens to Minimal’s homo-erectus.

We have conceived this instrument from the ground up, using parts of the Minimal engine and reimagining many other things to accommodate for the added flexibility Grosso brings to the table. The main difference, apart from the obviously upbeat nature of the recorded material and the addition of a choir part and a taiko and non-melodic percussion section, is that we split out the orchestral sections into more parts. Strings and choir are split in low – mid – high, woodwinds and brass into low and high, percussion into taiko and more traditional orchestral percussion. All of these elements have been carefully composed to work well with all of the others, resulting in millions of possible combinations of sounds.

Grosso features

  • 6 Instrument patches covering Strings, Brass, Percussion, Woodwinds, Choir and a Dynamic builder tool for transitions composing.
  • Including Timestretching and tempo syncing using Native Instruments Time machine Pro 2 & Sonokinetic’s Intelligent Tempo Mapping.
  • 44.1kHZ – 24bit and 16bit NCW format (36.000+ samples each).
  • Royalty and copyright free.

The library is available for purchase for a three week introductory price of 249.90 EUR (regular 299.90 EUR). Prices excl. VAT.

Sonokinetic releases The Carnival for Kontakt

Sonokinetic The Carnaval

Sonokinetic has announced the release of The Carnival, a virtual barrel organ instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Ever since we recorded and produced ‘Carousel’ several years ago, we’ve been hearing so many positive reactions about it, and about the need for ‘couleur locale’ like this. Loving Carousel as much as we do, we decided to do an encore, a sequel if you wish. We infused this new instrument with a lot of the things we’ve learned and perfected over the years. Our scripting mastermind Ken Black added an ingenious script to glue it all together and make it feel and play as it should in proper Sonokinetic fashion.

For the recording we went back to Hilversum in the Netherlands and booked the same studio we used for Celesta. We teamed up with A.W. de Vogel, who comes from a long lineage of prolific organ-men in the lowlands. He brought along two of his most cherished barrel organs, a small hand operated one, and a larger one powered by an electric motor, that we barely got through the studio entrance.

The Carnival features

  • 470 MB sample pool, 850+ samples (44.1 kHz, 24-bit NCW format).
  • Big and Small organs with 4 registers respectively.
  • Organ percussion and sampled Tremolo for the large organ.
  • Octave Doubling.
  • Automatic Tempo-synced trills (major and minor).
  • Tempo-synced runs in 5 scales.
  • ‘The Carnival’ Bespoke Reverb.
  • Sampled Bellows Noise.
  • Custom designed interface.
  • Open Kontakt format for complete user customisation (Kontakt 4.2.4 or 5 full version only, NOT compatible with the free Kontakt Player).

The library is available to purchase for 69.90 EUR.

Sonokinetic releases Güzin for Kontakt

Sonokinetic Güzin

Sonokinetic has announced the release of Güzin, a sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt featuring female Turkish vocal performances.

We have worked with Miss Güzin Degismez before, in our very first vocal library ‘Tigris and Euphrates’ and have been in contact with her about doing another project ever since.

As no other, Ms Degismez knows how to blend the traditional music of her culture into cinematic atmospheres that instantly invoke emotion and lively imagery. For this project, we recorded all new material, based on ‘moods’ and, in contrast to Tigris and Euphrates, these are all tempo synced and we’ve recorded all material in two tempi, to be able to employ our ITM tempo mapping system, making sure the recordings will always stay within acceptable stretch ranges. Of course, you can turn off ITM if you’re looking for that overstretched sound as an effect.

All is recorded in Istanbul by our trusted producer Ceyda Pirali, who played live percussion during the recording session to accompany the mood and set the stage for Güzin to perform freely and without the robotic constriction of a clicktrack, while still providing us with tempo sync-able material.

Güzin features

  • Kontakt 4 & Kontakt 5 patch spanning 6 different moods, each in two recorded tempi.
  • Automatic BPM group selecting (HOST slave).
  • Tempo synced by time machine.
  • Use of Sonokinetic Intelligent Time Machine functionality.
  • Kontakt 5 with Timemachine Pro settings (64Bit).
  • 3400+ samples. (1,36 GB sample content).
  • all samples is 24 Bit 44.1 kHz AIFF format.
  • Royalty and copyright free.

The library is available to purchase for 49.90 EUR. Requires full version of Kontakt (Kontakt Player not supported).

Sonokinetic Celesta

Sonokinetic has announced the release of Celesta, a virtual instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

One of our personal favorite instruments of all time, the Celesta (or Celeste), has been capturing people’s imaginations for centuries and will continue to do so for many years to come. The instrument really has a magical sound and every time we happen to cross paths with a real one and open the lid it amazes us how inviting this instrument is to play.

Of course, most of them are a bit off pitchy, the keys don’t always react the way you’d want them to, but that adds to the beauty. You cannot force this instrument where it doesn’t want to go but it’ll always take you in an interesting direction.

Celesta features

  • 3.1 GB NCW compressed sample pool, 4000+ samples.
  • Three velocity levels.
  • Separate samples for Sustain pedal on and off.
  • Multiple round robin samples.
  • Celesta Reverb.
  • Three Microphone positions.
  • Custom designed interface.

The Celesta library is available to purchase for 49.90 EUR. Requires full version of Kontakt 4.2.4 or Kontakt 5.

Sonokinetic Yiddish

Sonokinetic has released Yiddish, a sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt featuring traditional Jewish female vocals.

Sonokinetic specializes in in-depth musical history heritage exploration since 2008. With “Yiddish” we fulfill our premise to capture part of the Jewish music culture and complement our signature sampling line with this very recognizable musical style.

This library is a very specific and authentic representation of its promised title, a niche in ethnic music that hasn’t been covered in sampling before. With “Yiddish”, Sonokinetic BV is very proud to present to you a continuation in our proven concept in vocal cinematic performance sampling. You can expect the same dedication to high-end sample quality, software performance, instrument handling and documentation that is present in all of our vocal products. This collection will fulfill your professional media-scoring needs when working within this thematic color, style or genre. We hope you will let this breathtaking musical performance and dramatic cinematic vocal fx collection inspire you and show you new compositorial ways.

Yiddish features

  • 4 main categories in traditional Yiddish style: Traditional Songs, Improvisations, Poems and Effects.
  • Automatic BPM group selecting (HOST slave).
  • Tempo synced by time machine.
