The Very Loud Indeed Co. has announced the release of its latest Kontakt sample library, Chimaera: Mutated Pitched Percussion.

CHIMAERA is designed for speed, flexibility and ease of use. Just like the mythical creature made of the body parts of different animals, CHIMAERA is a collection of several pitched percussion instruments. However, it goes beyond just sampled instruments — it puts a formidable amount of power at the user’s fingertips, by allowing endless combinations of its 18 sound layers.

Chimaera features

  • 552 sound files at 16 bit / 48 kHz resolution in a compact 1.25 GB footprint.
  • 6 sampled pitched percussion instruments (marimba, vibraphone, steel pan, hang drum, kalimba and glockenspiel).
  • Simultaneously playable short notes and pads in each instrument module.
  • 30 highly curated presets to serve as starting points or templates.
  • Instrument modules can be activated or deactivated to save on voices and CPU power.
  • All WAV files are included, so you can use them in your DAW or other samplers.

Available for the full version of Kontakt 6.7.1 or higher, Chimaera is on sale at the introductory price of $47 USD until October 13th, 2022 (regular $79 USD).
