Native Instruments Heavyocity Damage KONTAKTtorrent
I love the interface of Aeolus Duet for its ability to scale the engine and the number of parts with a single pedal switch; many of the other libraries I have tried had either engine branching that made it more difficult to scale and control, or did not give you full control over the number of parts by simply clicking on the desired object. Additionally, the library is priced a bit high, but its quality and polish is worth it. Concerto Analog Opus 1 gets points because it has a great interface that allows you to lay out your sounds in useful ways and includes plenty of classic guitar sounds, as well as strings, brass, and percussion. With such a wide variety of sounds available, this library is a must buy. Seismic Studio samplepack contains 5 massive brand new instruments that are some of the most dynamic, expressive samples I have encountered; the UFO Guitar, Waterfall Guitar, Tectonic Guitar, and others, are all super high quality and extremely playable. The drums and instruments are stunning, and the new landscape library is also excellent; my only complaint is the extreme 16-bit/44.1K sample rate, although I suppose few users will be using this music in higher bit-depth audio.
Kontakt Player is a new flagship Kontakt instrument by Native Instruments that costs $25, but looks more like a virtual instrument rack than a typical Kontakt instrument. Each instrument has control over each of the ones that follow. It also lets you control up to 16 instruments simultaneously. Sounds come from four different libraries, all of which allow you to really create music that feels both real and unreal. The sounds are very diverse, and the interface provides a comfortable and intuitive way to layer together many instruments. There are three ‘effects” sections, as well as 11 category-specific effects, and you can control all this from the score display or from the function keys.
the sample libraries are a set of carefully crafted orchestral and music-oriented libraries. they include: orchestral samples, drum kits, percussion samples, modular, synthesizers, other and vocoders. they are all processed, quantized, and meticulously mixed to provide you with a vast collection of sounds to choose from. they can be played with the kontakt 5 engine or the kontakttorrent application.
stroke is the successor to the popular stroke instrument. like its predecessor, stroke is a fast and easy way to create awesome-sounding synth sounds. it has two major benefits over other similar samplers. first, it can load multiple drum kits and apply them to individual instruments. this is a huge benefit when you are working with a large ensemble. second, stroke has a unique feature called transpose. this is a powerful tool that allows you to change the transpose of the instrument at any time. this opens up a wide range of possibilities.
kontakt has given native instruments a huge advantage. it is one of the most popular sample libraries for kontakt. it is also one of the most frequently used libraries for native instruments’ own tools. it’s a boon for all of us.
native instruments is a premium manufacturer of music software and hardware. the company was founded in germany in 1992 by steinberg in a small office and has since grown to be a world leader in music technology.
overall i am very impressed with this library. there are a huge number of instruments, and the presets are designed to work well on a variety of genres. the most impressive thing is that with a little practice, you can achieve a sound that is perfect for your needs. with a little tweaking it can be the perfect solution for almost any scoring needs. i am looking forward to exploring this library in more detail.
