Boxed Ear releases the Mighty M5 Kontakt Sample pack featuring the semi-modular analog synth 20/06/12
Boxed Ear has announced the release of Mighty M5, a new library for Kontakt 4 and 5 made entirely with the Macbeth M5 semi-modular analog synthesizer.
The Macbeth M5 is a monophonic, three oscillator, two filter, semi-modular analogue synthesizer, crafted by master Scottish synth wizard, Ken Macbeth. These synths were made to order and are now discontinued, which makes them very rare.
A Boxed Ear spokesperson told Sonic State, "The M5's sound is characterised by its full, rich bass, crystal highs and a distinctly analog tone. Huge basses and leads, luscious pads, electric pianos, drums, one-shot effects, and crazy modular bleeps and bloops are all included. The pack has been endorsed by the synth's creator, Ken Macbeth." Features:
Over 4300 samples at 24-bit, 44.1 kHz quality
Over 100 Kontakt instruments
To celebrate the launch of their website, Boxed Ear are also giving away a free sample pack of the Roland CompuRhythm CR-78 drum machine. Pricing and Availability:
Mighty M5 costs USD $49, EUR €39 or GBP £30 inc.VAT.
Full version of Kontakt 4 or 5 is required. Mighty M5 does NOT work with the free Kontakt Player. More information:
