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.

Video Tutorial: How to Make Mic Level Controls in Kontakt + FREE BOWED NAGOYA HARP SAMPLE
In this video, I find out what happens when you play a Japanese Nagoya Harp (Taishogoto) with a violin bow! In the process, I demonstrate how to make microphone volume level control knobs.
The Plucked Nagoya Harp Library (with 3 mics, velocity layers, round robins, etc.) is still available for $10 here.
The completely different but related Bowed Nagoya Harp Kontakt Library that I created in this video is available for FREE here.
Intro to Kontakt Scripting: Adding your First Knob + FREE KONTAKT INSTRUMENT
In this video, I cover one of the most basic aspects of Kontakt scripting: creating knobs to control instrument parameters. In particular, I use this occasion to add a lowpass filter with cutoff and resonance knobs to a Korg Volca Keys sample library (FREE). This video is a great starting point for anyone looking to get into KSP scripting.
The new Korg Volca Keys Kontakt instrument is available for free here.
