  • Instruments Cow Horn Play Track 36 sounds included $29

    Cow Horn is a traditional Finnish musical instrument constructed from the horn of cattle. In Finnish language it has many names, including sarvi, paimensarvi, lehmänsarvi, and sarvitrumpetti. Similar Nordic instruments include the Swedish kohorn and the Norwegian kuhorn.

    The recorded cow horn had two finger holes. Without covering any finger holes, we got a note C#. Covering one hole made a note D, and covering both finger holes made a note D#.

    We recorded long and short notes, and then expanded these to cover some lower and higher notes. Legato, portamento and vibrato was added via script.

    Cow Horn was recorded with two microphones, Neumann TLM 103 and Sennheiser MKH 8040, and you can choose your preferred one. We captured 36 samples with 3 round robins.

    This jouhikko was tuned in E-A-D. As there are different tunings, including the traditional A-D-G tuning, the virtual jouhikko has many options to cover those.
    We recorded long notes, staccato, spiccato, pizzicato and tremolo, from A4 to C#5, and then expanded these notes to cover some lower and higher notes. Legato, portamento and vibrato was added via script.

  • Where words fail, music gains its power. Now bringing together the soulful intimacy of our premier Felt Piano, LO•KI; the elegant delicacy of our mysterious Concert Harp, HA•PI; and the vintage analogue warmth of our Electric Piano, RO•KI. Use them together to compose unique melodies emerging from these extremely emotional and simple-to-use lyrical instruments. Previously released individually and as a duo, with the new GLOW Bundle, all three are now offered together at a reduced price.

The latest addition, our Electric Piano RO•KI, lets you switch between the raw DI signal or the warmth of a vintage style amp with 20 velocity layers. All three instruments feature the GLOW knob, which turns their sounds into mysterious, ethereal soundscapes with shimmering tones and enigmatic ambiances. All with a single rotation.

    [Note: This product requires a FULL version of Native Instruments’ KONTAKT. The free Kontakt player is not sufficient, as it only runs the instrument in DEMO mode.]

  • Cinematic/Trailer Instruments Beautiful Bells Vol 1 Play Track 1000+ sounds included, 253 mins total $109

    Beautiful Bells Vol 1 contains the solo ringing of 76 swinging bells, recorded in 43 churches, cathedrals, abbeys, basilicas and chapels across France, and 15 peals of multiple bells, called plenum, with unprecedented quality. Most of the sounds were recorded inside bell towers.

    Swinging bells are struck by a hanging clapper. They have a natural pitch modulation due to the Doppler effect, and a timbre modulation due to varying orientation. They produce a deep and lively sound and are mostly used to announce masses, religious holidays, weddings and funerals.

    Every bell size is represented in this library, from huge bourdons (bells whose pitch are below C3) weighing several tons to small chapel bells weighing around 20 kilograms. You will find bells founded from 16th to 21st century with a great variety of timbres and tunings. The sounds are sorted by note, from D2 to F5.

    By sorting the solo sounds by location, you can recreate authentic bell combinations. You also have the freedom to create any custom combination or use the sounds as instruments in musical scores.

    All the sounds in this library were recorded in bell towers or as close as possible to provide great sonic precision and optimal signal-to-noise ratio.

    Over 12,000 kilometers were traveled during six months to get you one of the most exhaustive swinging bell sound library ever recorded.

    • A total of 91 sounds recorded across France
    • Contrains the peal of 10 bourdons (below C3)

    • Metadata with detailed information about each bell

  • For Old Broken Piano we have recorded an old piano manufactured in the 1940s by the brothers Manegold. It has not been maintained and tuned for decades, giving it a unique, dark and nostalgic sound character.
    The instrument was recorded with a Sennheiser MKH 8040 Stereo Pair connected to a Sound Devices 702T.

    MKH 8040 are microphones with extended frequency response up to 50.000 Hz, which is great if you want to further process, re-pitch or stretch audio files.

    Rather unconventional approaches were used to „play“ the piano: Not a single key was touched! It was performed using a violin bow, various mallets and sticks, kitchen utensils, sticky tape and bare hands. The casing of the piano was partly taken apart to get direct access to the strings and the interior components of the instrument.

    A wide array of interesting sounds have been achieved by bowing, scraping or hitting single and multiple strings or parts of the wood body. For longer resonances, the sustain pedal was pressed down during almost all recordings.

    Old Broken Piano is a collabration between SampleTraxx and german sound designer Sebastian Emling.

    This library is the ideal companion for any professional sound designer, trailer or film composer.

  • We carefully sampled one of the most iconic string machines from italian manufacturer Elka. The instrument is quite simple, since it has only two sounds that can be eventually combined to create a third one. And that’s it. But it’s more than enough to make your music iconic!

    The recordings were made at 48KHz and 24 bit resolution, so you’re good to go with cinematic projects too.

    We sampled each note chromatically, so every single note from the original instrument is there, no pitch shifting. We also sampled the sounds combination, so the third sound it’s sampled as it comes out the original keyboard.

    The interface on the original instrument is extremely simple and basic, but all the controls are implemented in “Cellotron 1976”. We added two effects for added flexibility and sonic possibilities, but we tried to keep the simple controls wise, to fit in the spirit of the original instrument.

  • Victorian Pump Organ is our new steampunk-inspired Kontakt library made in collaboration with Stuart Keenan from Glitchedtones. With 50 different patches including sound design, drum kits and foley, this instrument is perfect for musicians and sound designers to make everything from sea shanties, period style music from the 1800s and early 20th-century all the way to EDM tracks and horror/atmospheric scores.

    Stuart Keenan from Glitchedtones faithfully captured a Victorian Pump Organ (built-in 1865, Canada) at a studio in Newcastle with 4 different microphones positioned for treble, bass and stereo room mic perspectives. Our Audio Craftsmen meticulously edited the samples and programmed 50 patches and integrated them into our Kontakt interface giving film composers, music producers, sound designers and game developers a vast array of options to create music and compositions in various genres.

    There are 9 main patches including 3 melodic patches, 4 chord patches and 2 foley patches with the organ adjusted at different stops. We also recorded genuine major, minor and complex chords helping people with less knowledge in music theory to write songs and chord progressions. We also covered foley patches with keys, squeaks and pedal sounds to add an essence of natural character.

    Our in house composers built additional designed patches which include; Harp like arpeggiators, ethnic instruments such as the harmonium all the way to electro leads, game boy organs and dubstep inspired basslines. We even manipulated samples and built patches for metal and rock music. 

    We have included patches for a variety of circumstances like abandoned church organs, space generators and creaky room voices. We have also included low subsonic impacts and rumbles to add weight to your sounds and music. Some of the patches like glorious arp, telephone arp, tweeting birds, drunken organ, sea shanty organ, harmonica and cathedral hits are ideal for adding texture and interest.

    Our user-friendly Kontakt interface provides a variety of controls that encourage experimentation within the patches. We have included a mic mixing section with ADSR where you can adjust the levels for treble, bass and stereo (multiple mics) if you need to add more width to the mix. The built-in Arpeggiator and Step Sequencer are great for generating hundreds of variations in seconds.

    We hope that you will take the opportunity to try out this fascinating and timeless instrument.

    Kontakt 5.8.1 or higher is required.

    NOTE: This library does not run in the free ‘Kontakt Player.
