here's a contribution of mine that won't worry developers out there... take a guy that hasn't played the flute for 20 years, and get him to sample a flute using an Ipad with the tascam micro attached... the result is a maybe non completely useless Kontakt4 patch, here:

www.robertosoggetti.com/RobFlute.zip

unfortunately, the quality of flute sound, and recording equipment are less than mediocre, but someone could find a use for it as a second or third flute... :)
Optimized for cc2 or mod wheel, also a (less effective) velocity controlled patch...

PS is it ok to post nkis that implement sips?

Hey Rob, I've actually been finding myself playing with this instrument a lot more lately. It actually sounds quite nice, especially with a little reverb added. I actually like it a lot. I have one complaint though, with the "rob_flute_cc1.nki", between F#5 to B5, I get this weird percussive "clangy" sound. I'm not the only one getting this am I. I'll just use the other nki for now. Thanks for the instrument.

Nevermind, I found out what the problem was. When I load the instrument, I turns out that it's loading some samples (that probably has the same name) from another library. I guess I have to just locate each sample individually instead of doing the auto search thing. Anyway, thanks again for the flute! :D

I can contribute with Zebra synth patches:

16 free presets from the Padsheaven soundset for U-HE Zebra:

http://www.sound.artenuovo.com

Actually there is 17: i made an emulation from the legendary Dx7 E-Piano1, and
you'll find it in the same folder.

You can also listen many of them in the audio demos.


Cheers, :)

Hey everyone, this is a glockenspiel for Kontakt. I used a bow to make the bars resonate instead striking them with mallets. The staccato samples sound like a celeste with a softer attack. The sustains sound a glass armonica with slight bow noise. The samples are tuned to match OrchestralTools' The Glock.

- Mic'd close and recorded in MONO as 24bit WAVs.
- Each sampled sustain is held for 8 seconds or longer.
- There are three dynamics recorded for each sustain. Crossfading is controllable via the mod wheel.
- The physical instrument's range is from G3-C6. The virtual instrument's range is C3-C6.
- 99 sustain samples. Three velocity layers, 1xRR.
- 155 staccato samples. One velocity layer, 5xRR.

Articulation patch list:
- 01 Bowed Sustain
- 02 Bowed Sustain Loop (credit to Park Bench)
- 03 Staccato

I've also included a preset for VirtualSoundStage 1.

Here's a short demo with original tuning.

A big thanks to Park Bench for his nki with looping!

Enjoy!

thank you, Steven, I forgot about this one... I'm happy that you found it useful, it just seemed too low quality to even comment... :)

With Hawpri's permission-
just a looped version of the esoteric rosinspiel .nki (should work, just point it to your sample directory)

If anyone wants to take a hack at the crossfade script and try to achieve release samples...

Park Bench, I didn't realize you'd already posted your version of the patch- it sounds great. I added the link to your version in my original post. Thank you!!

If anyone else is interested in sharing an improved version, feel free to post your nki.

Made another VI freebee today. :)

A very simple Viola da Gamba for Kontakt 5+

It's entirely created by using only one sample, provided by a gambist for free. With some formant/pitch trickery, I think I've managed to create a convincing VI.
It doesn't have round robins, nor velocity layers. But I am sure that it's extreme depth and heavy dark timbre will make up for that.
