The Alpine Project has announced the release of Alpine Oboe, a free solo oboe Kontakt instrument based on samples from Sam Gossner’s VSCO CE.

The Alpine Project came about from a realization about the state of free sample libraries. While there were many free samples in the public domain, there were hard to find, and in varying hard to use formats.

The Alpine Project collects the best public domain musical instrument samples, and combines them with clever scripting and effects in NI’s Kontakt. The result is great sounding free sample libraries that can find a place in the beginning and professional composer’s studio.

Alpine Oboe is a free download for Native Instruments Kontakt 5 (full version).
