Sonic Zest has introduced The Glass Absolute Quintet, a virtual instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Glass has been used as a musical instrument for centuries. While usually filled with the finest French cognacs, champagnes and wines, the unique sound of these quintet of glasses produces a warm and haunting tone, that comes with a reverb-y and chamber like echo.

The Glass Absolute Quintet is an exciting new library, featuring the soprano sound of the Champagne Flute all the way down to the baritone of the Punch glass bowl. The glasses have been hit and resonated to give a variety of sounds, full of character.

The Glass Absolute Quintet features

  • Detailed sampling of a quintet of glass instruments: Champagne, Brandy, Burgundy, Wine and Punch glasses.
  • Both resonance and staccato expressions.
  • For staccato the glasses are available separately or layer, while for the resonance all five glasses are in a single instrument patch.
  • Instantly playable.
  • 130 MB download (315 MB when extracted)
  • 3x round robins.
  • Full Kontakt required.

The sample library is available to purchase for the introductory price of $30 USD.
