Freebies for Native Instruments Kontakt

99
Native Instruments Kontakt

Native Instruments Kontakt comes with a huge sample library, featuring well over 1,000 instruments spanning a wide range of styles.

If that’s not enough for you, there are also many free Kontakt instruments available for download on the internet.

In the list below I have collected some links to free Kontakt instruments. Let me know if anything is missing and I will add it to the list.

Not free, but you can also pick up some really cheap Kontakt libraries up at VST Buzz.

Thanks for the links. Just wanted to mention that http://www.store.precisionsound.net/ has some quality freebies. I don’t work for them, but have purchased in the past and was very satisfied. Here is a list of the free stuff:

Cretone TT Free!
Koestler Rigoletto Free!
Red Grand Free!
ToysToysToys Free!

There’s a few freebies that work in Kontakt at http://www.store.precisionsound.net/redgrandinfo.php
There’s one called Koestler Rigoletto that is pretty amazing.

The response so far has been great. I discuss the potentials of sampling and release original instruments every week.

Hi,

you forgot free soundbanks from Soni Musicae : the 2 best free harpsichords available, probably the best free diatonic accordion, and a little house organ (not the best, I admit)… And my own grandfather’s clock !

Here it is :

Thx for the new and working Depone-link.

The sample78 link gives me an error: “The Squarespace account sample78 is not currently available.”

The Modular samples link gives some great synths. Not without any problems though. The 6GB Korg Z1 zip is corrupt (downloaded twice), but winrar got the files out anyway. For most of the synths, the kontakt instruments needed a batchrepair to re-find the samples. Some fiddling (I don’t know if that’s correct english) needed, but do-able.

It would be awesome if you might perhaps tell us which of these libraries (if any) are compatible with the free Kontakt Player.

Ronnie
Ronnie

Probably none… Kontakt Player compatibility is a premium, so I doubt any freebies include a license to use it in the Player version. If I find one that is compatible I will make sure to explicitly mention it.

There’s a bunch of broken links but all in all, a lot of free stuff to try out!

In the interest of paying it forward, here’s 10 free EXS24 files I created last year.

And 20 Kurzweil files I made from samples of vintage gear owned by myself and a buddy of mine.

Sennheiser just released DrummicA, a free 8GB drum kit with an excellent sound (very dynamic) and Kontakt user interface. You do have to register to use it, but it is a free download, and it’s compatible with Kontakt Player 5 as well as the full Kontakt 5. I think they did this to demo how well their microphones capture drum sounds.

It used to be a free library http://rekkerd.org/erik-ekholm-releases-free-cinematic-sound-library-for-ni-kontakt/

VG Trumpet soft is a Bb trumpet that has been recorded and programmed as a very high quality Kontakt Instrument with a custom graphic interface http://www.vgtrumpet.com/free-demo/

Thanks Vladimir. I tried it, I found this library quite good. Almost exactly
what I was looking for, the realistic trumpet with natural-sounding
vibrato. As for me, this timbre resembles magnificent Till Bronner’s
trumpet!

Hi there,
Does anybody know the libraries for Kontakt that can be used with digital wind instruments, such as AKAI EWI or Yamaha WX11?
Of course, I tried different libraries, “Kirk Hunter Studios Concert Brass”, “Andante Brass”, “Embertone trumpet”. I found them good enough in quality. But the disappointing fact is their too large size, sometimes exceeding dozens of gigabytes. Also breath control is not always possible to fine-adjust.
Would really appreciate some feedback from your side on my difficulty :-)

The best that I have found are from VG Instruments, VG Trumpet.
