unEarthed Sampling has launched Interplanetary, a new sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt featuring cinematic tuned glass bowl multisamples.
Inspired heavily by scores like Interstellar and Solaris, Interplanetary features cinematic multisamples taken from an antique glass bowl which have been turned into something otherworldly.
For this instrument unEarthed Sampling struck the bowl with fingers, sticks, and mallets and each patch not only contains 6 round robins, but has also been carefully tuned to give you maximum flexibility as a composer. The 16 patches cover a wide variety of playing styles including the tuned struck patches mentioned above as well as ethereal pads and even a couple of patches derived from bowing the bowl with a cello bow. For an added bonus, there is also a low and hard hitting multisampled analogue synth bass patch which is good for under-laying these instruments (or the instruments / libraries of your choosing).
Interplanetary is available for purchase for the introductory price of £7.99 GBP. Requires full version of Kontakt 18.104.22.168 or higher.

unEarthed Sampling has released Hammer-On, a cinematic ambient electric guitar instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt.
The Hammer-On technique is usually utilized to bridge notes together… or for killer solos. For this library it is the sole articulation used and played on a Stratocaster which has been cleanly recorded and multisampled. There are no loops here (save for one patch), each patch contains meticulously recorded and mastered multisamples as played on a Strat. As this sort of play style is normally not showcased, it gives this instrument a very unique sound and timbre not found anywhere else.
Consisting of 13 patches, Hammer-On can sound soft and sweet, creepy, or up tension in an action scene. If you play in the higher ranges it can even sound ethnic, similar to a dulcimer. The GUI (or “unearthed verbamp 80″) has controls for EQ (bass, mid, hi), reverb (a huge hall convolution reverb), and attack. The attack and EQ knobs can drastically alter the sound and vibe of each patch.
Hammer-On is not your average guitar library. It does contain multisampled electric guitar patches, but it is aimed more squarely at cinematic and video game scores than producing authentic rock ballads.
Hammer-On is available for the introductory price of £7.99 GBP for first week (regular £8.99 GBP). Requires the full version of Kontakt 22.214.171.124 or higher.

unEarthed Sampling has launched Spaceology, an “Orbital Sound Module” for Native Instruments Kontakt.
Spaceology contains 13 patches derived from the actual NASA recordings recently released into the public domain (This instrument set is in no way endorsed by or affiliated with NASA).
You’ll get creepy pads, ethereal tempo synced pulses (one of which is derived from the infamous Sputnik signal), as well as a Mission VOX patch which contains 22 choice bits of dialogue from NASA missions and various radio beeps and static one shots mapped to the lower octaves. All of the samples utilized were meticulously remastered and cleaned for maximum clarity for both sample quality and archival purposes.
The sample library is available from Sampleism for £6.99 GBP.

unEarthed Sampling has released Tension Hits 2, a sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt.
Where STH focuses on soft tension filled hits from unlikely sources, TH2 focuses more on in your face loud and epic impacts. All of these impacts come from unconventional sources such as chairs, tubes, stage hits, doors, sticks, metal shelves, and candelabras. unEarthed Sampling even recorded ensemble stomps on the stage which sound “HUGE and epic”. There are no loops or phrases here, these are all multisampled recordings meticulously recorded via a matched pair mic set.
All of the samples were recorded in a large old hall built in the late 1800s. The hall is featured in the GUI art by Glyn Lloyd. All of the patches (save for one of the two stomps patches) feature 4 X RR.
The GUI features some easily tweakable controls to really change the sound of each of the patches. These tweaks include Attack, Release, Lo, Mid, and Hi gain knobs, and the indispensable pitch knob. The toggleable covolution reverb makes these sound huge and they even included 13 easily selectable impulse responses.
The library is available for purchase for $25 USD.

unEarthed Sampling has announced the release of Forgotten Songs, a virtual instrument for Kontakt featuring cinematically mangled vinyl recordings.
Atonal Chaos. Ligeti and The Monolith from 2001 go hand in hand… if you’re next score is in need of a similar tone and some creepy atonal pads and drones, Forgotten Songs is for you! If you’re familiar with classical pieces from Gygory Ligeti such as Lux Aeterna… then you already know what to expect with FS. This sort of ever evolving creeptastic choir vibe is the sound we were after for the library… albeit a bit more synthetic in tone.
Through stretching, tweaking, maming, destroying, and processing various clips from old public domain vinyl recordings from the 1930s, we have achieved it. The end result is extremely creepy as some of these pads have a 10 or 20 second buildup stemming from insanely stretched choir or orchestra sounds.
Forgotten Songs features
- Awesome PADS and AMBIENT material stemming from public domain vinyl recordings from the 30s.
- Atonal Choir patches, Drones, Pads, and Staccs.
- Perfect for Sci Fi, Horror, Chillout, and Ambient music.
- Looped and unlooped patches.
- 25 Kontakt Instruments.
- Highly (and easily) tweakable GUI (incl. attack, eq, and convolution reverb controls).
The library costs £11.99 GBP / $20 USD. Requires full version of Kontakt 4.2+.
