In addition to the main sets, you will find 61 patches of chromatically playable instruments:
The finest bell samples of the collection were finely tuned to the closest key, and their pitch range was then spread over up to five octaves to create unique melodic instruments. All of these patches are also velocity responsive.
The playing range for these instrument is C1-C5.


Most of the samples in this collection were recorded fairly dry, with as little ambience as possible, to ensure maximum flexibility and usefulness. All patches feature a convenient reverb selector section. You can select one of the 15 included reverb impulse response, and set the amount of reverb needed. The reverbs are ordered according to size, from the early reflection sound of a small office to the huge and rich ambience of a cathedral.

204 samples (stereo and mono files, 24bit, 48 and 96 kHz)
15 IR responses
68 NI Kontakt patches (requires full version of Kontakt 4-5)
