The Hand Pan! (9 EUR) by SampleHero is your chance to have a truly awesome and inspiring instrument for literally a fraction of the price.

If you are looking for inspiring, niche string sounds to add splashes of color and realism to your music, this instrument is for you.
Blossom (26 EUR) by Audiowarp is inspired by old tapes in the attic, the golden age of analogue synths worn down by the hands of time and a true love of pushing the boundaries of what analogue can do.
It is the result of years of recording, re-recording and twisting countless numbers of vintage synths to produce something truly unique that has become Audiowarp’s trademark sound.
Paying homage to artists such as Mogwai, Grails, Explosions In The Sky, Tame Impala, Deftones and of course Boards Of Canada, the results are mesmerizing and unlike any sounds heard before.
Glass Hand Drums (6 EUR) by Sonic Zest sits between percussion and melodic instrument, a Kontakt library that captures the beauty and quirky nature of these instruments.

Vector X Bundle (24 EUR) by Synth Magic is a custom instrument based on the legendary mid 80’s Sequential Circuits Prophet VS synth, recreated for Native Instruments Kontakt 5.
The sound of the Prophet VS was different from the usual analogue polysynths of that era and was notable for its use by many film score composers (including John Carpenter).
This bundle features a huge library of inspirational sounds and samples taken directly from Synth Magic’s very own Prophet VS.
Vermon by Synth Magic (18 EUR) is based on the rare Vermona Piano Strings synth, the interface for this Kontakt instrument goes way beyond original hardware.
Synth Magic sampled their rare Vermona Piano Strings synth and also created a heavily processed version using valves, distortions, filters, tape and ensemble units. So, Vermon comes with both a clean and true to original hardware sample set, and a heavily processed sample set…
The result is a highly usable and unique collection of sounds that will be able to find a place in most styles of music.
Platter (9 EUR) by Rhythmic Robot possibly is its gnarliest, grungiest instrument yet. It a kind of bastardised string synth hybrid, taking as its starting point a variety of synth waveforms but reimagining them as built into a vinyl-based replay machine.
If a Solina and an Optigan were abandoned in an attic for fifty years and had babies, this is what they might sound like…
Tubes & Wires (9 EUR) by Rhythmic Robot is a huge, rusting hulk of a synthesizer, smelling of Bakelite and hot valves, glowing and humming and breathing.
This is a synth that wears its vintage credentials on its sleeve: dusty, crusty, growling and screaming, it’s a world away from today’s squeaky-clean digital world.
Volt II (18 EUR) by Castle Instruments is packed with deeply sampled and highly playable sounds including hard hitting and gritty bass sounds, ethereal pads and strings, arpeggios, distorted other-world textures, alien atmospherics and dreamy uplifting chordal synths.
