Music Services - Drumasonic v1.5 KONTAKT SCD [AudioP2P]

Music Services Drumasonic v1.5 KONTAKT SCD AudioP2P | 8.10.2011 | 3.03 GB

As the name suggests, DRUMASONIC represents a high-end approach: In sampling one of the best, modern and universal sounding drum kits along with some of the finest snare drums, hihat, ride, crash, china and splash cymbals, no sound-altering devices have been employed. All the signals have been converted with high-end equipment directly after the preamps at 96 kHz, 24 bit. The goal was to provide the discerning musician, sound technician or producer – in the sense of authentic drum miking – a variety of phase-compatible, freely combinable and distributable signals out of two distinct recording rooms. Instead of delivering pre-defined sounds or tons of patches, DRUMASONIC addresses its focus on tonal authenticity, signal purity and mixing flexibility.


►A modern drum set and some of the finest cymbals, pristinely recorded in two distinct, punchy sounding rooms – Damped Room and Large Room.
►Unprocessed signals which have been extensively phase-optimized, perfectly cut and velocity-mapped with additionally developed software tools.
►Microphones: 5.0 Surround, Overheads A/B, Room M/S, Trash, Close mics, Bass Drum inside/outside, Snare Drum top/bottom – freely mixable and routable.
►Comprehensive Snare resonance and HiHat concepts, freely assignable Mapping, Velocity, Tuning, MIDI controllers.
►High performance, state-of-the-art KONTAKT4.2 engine, intuitive user interface.

DRUMASONIC runs on all current Mac and PC systems with about 3.5 GB of free hard disk space (download edition with lossless compressed 44.1 kHz/24 bit samples; representing 8 GB uncompressed) as stand-alone application as well as AU, VST and RTAS plug-in. With the purchase of DRUMASONIC, you qualify for a cross-grade offer to the full version of KONTAKT 4 by Native Instruments.

DRUMASONIC 1.5 New Features:

►Mixer presets can now be saved to a file or loaded from a file, within each room.
Comprehensive re-design of the options page:
►New “Random Velocity” control for randomly adding or subtracting values to or from the current velocity value within a user-definable range.
►Six new “Random Pitch” controls for randomly pitching up or down any instrument within a user-definable range.
►New mapping functionality: up to eight keys can now be assigned to each articulation (instead of one). There are mapping presets for various e-drums systems. User presets can now be saved to a file and can be exchanged between both rooms.
►Extended HiHat triggering control: the user can now define an individual MIDI CC value range according to each “Openness Level” for accurately controlling the openness/ sensitivity of the HiHat.
►New snare “WiresOff” triggering options: releasing or engaging the snare wires is now possible with any MIDI controller or with a customizable keyswitch.
►The “Panning” of the grouped close microphones is now adjustable according to each Crash Cymbal and each Tom.
►New “Decay” function: the volume decay time can now be shortened separately for each instrument and microphone category.

Analogue Drums - Plastique Analogue Drums [Kontakt]

Analogue Drums - Plastique Analogue Drums 
| Kontakt | 1.68 GB

Plastique is a hard hitting rock kit with tone and punch for miles. This kit will drive a classic rock track with authority and add flavour to fusion and pop pieces.

The kit itself is a vintage 1970s Ludwig Vistalite in Bonhamesque configuration and tuning, including two vintage Ludwig Supraphonic snares and Paiste 2002 cymbals. The kit was sampled in a big room with plenty of character imparting an expansive sound on these samples. As usual we've used nothing but the finest gear to capture the kit, including Neumann mics, a vintage Neve desk, API and Chandler preamps and a roll of 2" tape.

Sonic references: Led Zeppelin, John Bonham, Them Crooked Vultures, The Dead Weather, The Raconteurs, The Secret Machines, Thunder

Round robin: each velocity layer contains 6 round-robin samples, played randomly to ensure realistic performances.

Multi-sampling: each key contains up to 8 velocity layers for expressive detail. Hihats are extensively sampled for convincing realism with 7 articulations (tip, tight, closed, loose, semi-open, open, pedaled).

Kontakt instrument interface: with separate volume and panning controls for individual drums, overhead mics, and room mics.

Sensitivity control: increase the sensitivity of the kit for more subtle performances or leave it set to full dynamic range for rock and heavier numbers.

Presets: for quickly dialing up sounds.

Layout: General MIDI (GM) and Extended Mapping (EX) layouts provided.

Native Instruments - Kontakt 5 STANDALONE VSTi AU RTAS v5.0.1 [Mac OSX]

Native Instruments - Kontakt 5 | STANDALONE 
VSTi AU RTAS v5.0.1 OSX | 759 MB

Once again, NATIVE INSTRUMENTS raises the bar with KONTAKT 5 — the latest version of the industry-leading sampler. KONTAKT 5 takes a bold leap forward with 37 new filters, four new on-board studio effects, updated time stretching, a new instrument bus system and more. As you will see from the newSTUDIO DRUMMER, for example, it's a deep-rooted update to the KONTAKT platform, allowing us — and you — to create even better instruments and more powerful, expressive sounds.

KONTAKT 5 delivers a number of large-scale enhancements, extending the creative power of the industry standard sampler further than ever before.

New pro effects
An authentic re-interpretation of a classic studio effect— a uniquely clean and musical 4-band EQ switchable to shelf on the low and high bands, plus two full parametric mid-bands.

Also available as a fully-fledged product in its own right, this virtual reproduction of a legendary compressor adds presence and drive without blurring the detail. Though traditionally used to "glue a mix together", it's not just for bus compression!

Another premium-grade effect, also available separately — TRANSIENT MASTER is an incredibly musical and versatile tool for re-shaping any kind of percussive sound. Make a sound hit harder, or shorten the resonance tail of a sound that rings too long. Bring instruments to the front of the mix or smooth out spikiness.

By simulating the natural, harmonic compression of analog tape, the TAPE SATURATOR adds a pleasing warmth to your sound. And pushed a little harder, it delivers a smooth, organic overdrive.

* These pro-league effects are also available as fully fledged individual products - but you have them already included here in KONTAKT 5.

37 New Filters
KONTAKT 5 enhances your creative sound design palette with 37 new, high-quality filters, developed by the creative mastermind behind MASSIVE. The range covers the whole spectrum from classic state variable low-pass filters to avant-garde formant filters, and nine of the new additions employ groundbreaking adaptive resonance technology. These 'AR' filters manage resonance peaks automatically — like an intelligent limiter inside the instrument — to avoid sudden harshness, unpleasant volume bursts, and unwanted distortion.

Vintage Sampling Modes
KONTAKT 5 offers vintage sample modes, straight from the MPC school of beatmaking. These re-create the unique sound and feel of the MPC60 and the SP1200, and are authentic enough to bring a nostalgic tear to the eyes of veteran beatheads everywhere. The algorithms used come from MASCHINE.

Advanced Time-Streching
An important addition in KONTAKT 5 is the new Time Machine Pro algorithm*, providing super-high-quality time-stretching — particularly suited to melodic and tonal material. Use Time Machine Pro for complete audio fidelity and imperceptible tempo-changes with all harmonic content intact.

The new 16- bus system introduces comprehensive routing options with integrated insert and send effects. This is a powerful tool for creating detailed effects chains within an instrument. For example, when building a drum kit, you might want to use completely different effects on the kick, toms and snare, while still sending the whole kit to a stereo master channel. Now you can.

KONTAKT 5 provides a new feature in the Kontakt Script Processor: the MIDI file player. Useful for creating instruments that can play patterns, loops and grooves as opposed to single notes. As used in STUDIO DRUMMER’s groove library, which provides over 3,500 exclusive beats and fills as production-ready MIDI patterns.

Kontakt 5 v5.0.1 Fixes:
Various crashes fixed
Activation problems with certain Kontakt libraries fixed
Audio issues at zero volume setting in Instrument Bus system fixed
Modulation behaviour of Solid G-EQ fixed
Pitch knob scaling for Time Machine Pro fixed
Library sorting issues fixed
Tempo issues with certain REX2 files fixed
Audio issues when setting send levels via KSP fixed
Delay output issues with instrument loaded into bank fixed
Other minor fixes

CineSamples - Drums Of War Vol.1/Vol.2 [Kontakt]

Cinesamples - Drums of War Vol 1 | Kontakt | 954 MB

Drums of War captures the magnitude and essence of a forgotten battle fought in a forgotten place. The trepidation that proceeds battle can be found in the depth of “Hell’s Deep.” “ Sub Boomz” echo the warmth of a call that inspired the timid long ago. “Ancient Torture Drum” brings to mind long-extinct trees and the skins of beasts that haven’t been seen on the earth in millennia. “War Ensemble” is reminiscent of grand, prehistoric armies that stormed across a rugged landscape, terrorizing all in their wake. “Titan Ensemble” can help to evoke the courage of battle-weary soldiers or the fear of the death knell’s call. Formats included: WAV, AIF, NKI, EXS.


Cinesamples - Drums of War Vol 2 | Kontakt | 6.61 GB

Drums of War 2 is the newest member to the cinesamples percussion family, and its parents are beaming. Following in the scope of the original Drums of War this new volume takes a different approach to achieving massive-percussive impact. Whereas the paramount concept of DOW 1 was recording huge orchestral drums in a huge space this time we used specific instrumentation/production techniques to achieve our result. DOW 2 contains entirely new sample content and entirely new instruments – those which we have never sampled before. The foundation of this library being the mighty taikos.

The hallmark of this library lies within the recordings. DOW 2 utilizes a combination close/stage mix with wonderfully rich character – a driving, powerful tone. If you could use one word to describe this sound it would most certainly be “tight”. But the real magic lies in whats going on in the stereo field. DOW 2 uses double, triple, and quadruple tracking – mapped down to one sample and therefore one key – allowing you to trigger this labor intensive studio-process which a single keystroke. Aside from being an ultimate timesaver, its also like having a renowned professional percussionist and mixer sitting in on your track. Each sample contains that delightful mini-flamming (without phasing) from the percussionist and that ultra-balanced wide panorama from the mixer. If you like to construct your own layers we’ve made the solo patches available too.

All DOW 2 percussion was sampled in 24/48 with the best gear, in a fantastic Los Angeles studio, by one of Hollywood’s most in-demand percussionists. Everything recorded with 10xRR and up to 10 velocity layers.

DOW 2 (8 GB) requires the full version of Kontakt 3.5 or 4+ and comes with the following patches.

Djun Djuns*
Frame Drums*
Hang Drum
Kissing Fish Shaker

Mondo Toms*
