Sonokinetic has released Toccata, a pipe organ sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Sonokinetic Toccata

Sonokinetic presents “Toccata”. The largest and most epic instrument of all! This instrument will literary blow you out of your socks. Weighing over 1 ton, constructed from over 1500 pipes, it has inspired the best composers for centuries. From J.S Bach to H. Zimmer all composers have been captured by the sheer power and intoxicating volume and tone colours of the pipe organ.

This collection of clean recorded pipe organ samples has been intensively tuned and tweaked and de-noised to the utmost extent. Now working like a Swiss watch, this instrument will give you a wide range of colouring options due to its ingenious programming of 20 registers for the Kontakt sampling engine. Recorded at the Bartholomeus Basilika in The Netherlands this library will bring the raw power of this massive pipe organ to your keyboard.
