Soniccouture has announced the release of its new sample library Moonkits, a Kontakt instrument library featuring drum sounds recorded at Konk Studios in North London, founded, and still owned by, Ray Davis of The Kinks.

Moonkits offers a journey to the softer side of the drumkit. It features 80 preset kits, each with its own groove set up and ready to drag and drop as MIDI.

Brushes, but not only for Jazz. Also rods, mallets, tea sticks: anything that mellows the attack and allows the texture to sing out.

Moonkits was intentionally recorded with extra detail at low velocites, because not every track is rock’n’roll. You don’t need to smash the kit hard. Just great touch and feel.

Moonkits features

  • 16GB Library.
  • 24/48khz stereo sampling.
  • Up to 116 velocity layers per drum.
  • Anti-repeat ’round-robin’ algorithm .
  • Brushes, rods, mallet, stick, articulations.
  • Brush sweep loops syncd to host tempo.
  • 3 Beat Tools drum sequencers with MIDI Drag and Drop: Euclidean Beats, Poly Beats, Beat Shifter.

Moonkits for Kontakt and the free Kontakt Player is available at a 30% intro discount until November 15th, 2019. The regular price is 149 EUR / $179 USD.

A free pack of 20 loops exported directly from the instrument using the Beat Tools grooves is available for download.
