Sonokinetic - Sleigh Bells (KONTAKT) | 392 MB
For this special package, we donned our comedy Santa hats and recorded 6 different sizes of sleigh bells, ranging from just one bell to a 25 bell stick. The samples were captured using apogee hardware and a violet audio flamingo stereo microphone.
We’re providing loops in two tempi. Using Kontakt’s Time Machine function and our in-house developed ITM (Intelligent Tempo Mapping) the loops will adapt to your carol seamlessly. We have captured two meters (3/4 and 4/4) and two feels… straight(ish) called ‘trot’ and a shuffle-feel ‘gallop’ which Rudolph tells us keeps him in perfect sync with the other reindeer.
We’ve also captured a sleigh full of single hits, to create a set of round robins for maximum realism… that’s between 23 and 41 different hits per instrument.
The interface is themed around an advent calendar (what else?!) You can open doors by either clicking them, or playing any of the keys associated with that door. The numbers refer to the number of bells of that particular sleigh bell, and in number 0 there is a general options field.
Please help us spread the holiday spirit by telling all your friends and family (or at least the ones that own a full version of Kontakt and know how to use it). We might be a bit early, but we figured you were gonna need this for your Christmas composing, which is happening right now.
So enjoy, and until the next release God rest Ye all…
