In this video, we explore how you can use Kontakt 6’s Creator Tools to automatically map samples based on their pitch and volume.
We’ve created a Kontakt template that should be perfect for people trying to build piano instruments in Kontakt. The basic idea behind the template is that it it should allow you to build a piano instrument in Kontakt 5/6 without doing much scripting. Check it out!

We’ve made a new Kontakt scripting tutorial in which we show how to work with piano samples. Topics covered: distinct samples for sustain and non-sustain, release triggers, and pedal up/down sounds.
In this video, we explore the power and simplicity of Ableton Live’s built-in Sampler instrument. In the process, we take the Box Violin sample we released two weeks ago and create an Ableton Sampler version of it.
Apple has a new sampling plugin called Sampler; it comes as part of Logic 10.5. In this quick video, Dave Hilowitz gives the new plugin a spin, and uses it to create an EXS version of our Box Violins Sample Library.

In October 2019, Dave Hilowitz built a Box Violin out of a paintbrush box. Well, we’ve finally gotten around to sampling it, and today we’re releasing the resulting sample library for free.
We’re releasing a new sample, Banjo Ukulele, today.
Last week, Jon Meyer released in his fantastic Soft Drums library. In this video, we tinker with his samples–adding hi-hat “choke groups” to his kit.
