Rhythmic Robot WurliBeat sample library for NI Kontakt

Rhythmic Robot has released WurliBeat, a Kontakt sound library featuring the smooth groove and mellow chilledfulness of the Wurlitzer Swingin’ Rhythm.

WurliBeat is a Kontakt recreation of the rare Wurlitzer Electronic Swingin’ Rhythm preset rhythm machine. The Swingin’ Rhythm is an early analogue rhythm unit intended to accompany Wurlitzer’s organs, and features five preset rhythms in combination with four one-shot kit pieces (kick, brush, block and cymbal) plus a Snare kit piece that can either be one-shot or continuously rolled. The onboard rhythms are typical of the 50s era, and comprise Waltz, Latin, Foxtrot, Teen and March, which features the rolled snare prominently.

Rhythmic Robot WurliBeat
WurliBeat has a creaky, slightly crackly, varying analogue charm that can add a dose of real vibe to ambient, nu jazz, trip-hop, New Age, ambient house and other laid-back musical styles.

WurliBeat features

  • 24-bit multiple samples, randomised on playback for analogue feel.
  • 5 preset rhythms which sync to DAW host tempo and can be combined.
  • Inbuilt compression and era-appropriate convolution plate reverb.
  • Level trim and pan position controls for each kit piece.
  • Photo-realistic user interface.

The sound library is available to purchase for £5.95 GBP.

Gospel Musicians releases Neo-Soul Keys 3X for Kontakt 5 FREE Player

Gospel Musicians Neo-Soul Keys 3X

Gospel Musicians has announced the release of its Neo-Soul Keys 3X sample library for the Kontakt 5 Free Player by Native Instruments.

Neo-Soul Keys 3X is an upgrade to the original Neo-Soul Keys. Unlike the original Neo-Soul Keys which only featured a Suitcase Mark I EP, the new 3X adds a dirty Stage Mark I and a Wurlitzer emulation. More importantly, we added a ton of mechanical noises to add grit, dirt, and realism to your EP experience. Our number one goal was realism and to give you the most organic experience ever in an EP library. We went to great lengths to make sure that if you could not take your heavy electro-mechanical instrument to your gig, or session, then our EP library would be the next best thing. A heavy amount of detail, thought, and programming went into this library as it boasts almost 8.0GB of sample data using Kontakt 5′s new scripting engine and features. The details make a difference and you will clearly hear the meticulous amount of detail that went into sampling every nuance and mechanical noises necessary for a complete EP experience!

We have also added the new Mark I Stage electric piano version for the Yamaha Motif XS/XF keyboards. This version has all of the knobs that are on the Kontakt version assigned to 8-different sliders for the Yamaha Motif keyboards. This gives you a lot of power, flexibility, and realism. Our goal was to make sure that the Stage EP would sound exactly the same as the Kontakt version. For the XF, you can load your EP in the Flash boards andload one time and it stays in memory.


Introduction to the new interface of Neo-Soul Keys 3X.

New in Neo-Soul Keys 3X

  • 2.5GB of NEW Sample Data – 8.0GB Uncompressed) @ 44.1kHz/24-Bit – 12-Velocity Layers.
