A few weeks ago, Dave Hilowitz attached a slinky to his violin effectively turning his home studio into a giant reverb tank. Now, we’re releasing a free sample library based on that experiment. Check it out:
We’ve just posted a new video that shows how we make sample libraries:
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’re releasing a new sample library today: Viola Ensemble. It’s $15 for a limited time.
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.
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.
In this Kontakt tutorial, we show how to make mic level knobs using instrument busses.
The samples we worked with in this video are from the free Box Violin Harmonics library we released last week.
