Bagpipes For Kontakt

Sonokinetik samples four types of European bagpipes      15/10/12

Sonokinetic have expanded their 'Heritage' sampling collection with a collection of authentic bagpipes. The library features 4 European bagpipes, spanning Spain to Scotland. Sonokinetic says that they are continuing with their sampling philosophy to offer both performance sampling and playable legato instruments in one collection.
This instrument incorporates several Sonokinetic signature features such as Intelligent Tempo Mapping, Performance-Articulation combination and tempo-sync bypass options. The bagpipes are recorded as dry as possible allowing for ultimate flexibility with mixing and placement. Sonokinetic tells us that they have provided an authentic Impulse Response within the interface for a realistic pipe reproduction.
A spokesperson told us, "The instrument itself runs in the full version of Kontakt. The interface itself is functional and easy to use whilst still retaining that quirky edge, distinctive of only the Sonokinetic name. Most of all, the library has an authentic, distinctive and high quality sound. Recorded with renowned professional performers and with close detail to sample functionality we are proud to present this one of a kind instrument."
