Sonokinetic has launched Accordion, an accordion sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt.
The accordion is an instrument that has been on our ‘to do’ list for quite some time. The instrument can provide you with a very nice ‘couleur locale’ whenever you need to give a song that French twist. The accordion brings a breath of fresh air and evokes feelings of romance, passion and nostalgia.
As with other Sonokinetic instruments, we focused on getting a ‘real’ sound instead of a ‘perfect’ sound, as you can hear from the demo tracks skilfully created by our demo composers. We are very proud of the finished product and believe that it will empower lots of people to make MIDI recorded accordion tracks that sound like they were played under a bridge along the river Seine.

Sonokinetic has announced the release of Delphi, a historical ancient Greek ensemble sound library for Kontakt.
For centuries our modern muse has been based on the early Greek arts and theaters. With “Delphi,” Sonokinetic’s goal was to capture this “cradle of music performance art.” They teamed up with renowned, Greek classically-trained vocalist Veronica Iliopoulou and reconstructed many of the authentic instruments of the period, thus creating a sample set that was truly “lost in time.” Delphi covers a broad range of ancient texts and phrases from Greek Tragedies and Dramas by Sophocles and Aeschylus.
This unique peek into a forgotten world of poetic power provides tools essential for recreating that ‘Mythological’ sound.
Vocals: Songs: Seikilos Epitaph, Stasimon From Orestis (oldest notated music anywhere found in the world), Dionysus Chants (Dionysus séances improvisations). Dramatic performances from Sophocles’s and Aeschylus’s ‘Agamemnon’, ‘Choeforoi’, ‘Eumenides’ and ‘Electra’ (theatre performance and cinematic whispered) and natural breath simulation samples.
Temposynced & ITM based grouping and mapping for all melodic performance elements. Available for Kontakt 4 Time Machine 2 and Kontakt 5 with Time Machine Pro.
