"Browsing the instruments is quite an adventure, unique & unusual indeed." from the rekkerd.org review, read the full review HERE
often when I use one-shot samples, I would like to have them play
higher or lower without changing their duration and/or having them slow
down or speed up. That gave me the idea for this
set. The set contains 101 sounds and over 2500 chromatically
mapped samples (205 MB). The complete list of programs is
Available in wav, sfz, Cakewalk Rapture and Native Instruments Kontakt 3 formats.

Native Instruments Kontakt 3 version with 211 instruments. The first 101 instruments correspond to the programs of the original version. The other 110 make use of Kontakt 3 features. I mainly combined the samples in various creative ways: layers, velocity layers, cycle groups and random groups. I did not use much the filters or the FXs as I preferred to design dry presets and let you apply processing and/or filters as you like. But still there a few instruments with filters and/or FXs. Please refer to the text files included with the demo for the complete list of the instruments and more details.
IMPORTANT: the instruments files are for Kontakt 3 only and will not work with previous versions of Kontakt.
Simple demos, featuring 1 sound each:
Demos with layered or multiple sounds:
All the above examples feature original unprocessed sounds and can be realised with any of the versions available. All are dry, no processing, except where noted.
Kontakt 3 versions, note that the MP3s in the first table were made with the now discontinued Emulator X2 version and those in the second one with Kontakt 3. I left the first table because the EMU X2 and K3 versions are sonically similar and almost interchangeable. No external processing.
Rapture version, and these are specific to the Rapture version, no external processing. One program per demo except where noted:
