Starting a Kontakt library...


New Member
Hello everyone, fairly new to the forum. I have begun composing for my own personal project. The project is Progressive Death Metal with Cinematic Elements set in Space.

I am currently using East West Quantum Leap Composer Cloud and I’m honestly not crazy about the samples themselves. As a result, I have begun exploring starting up a new collection of kontakt libraries.

I am looking to buy an Orchestra Pack and then expand from that I was thinking about maybe buying Metropolis Ark 1-2-3 to start with and expand from there, these libraries I feel like give me the most of what I'm looking within each package.

Other Sample Packs that I have in mind for the future...
