Free Kontakt Libraries Released by Bigcat Instruments

Bigcat Instruments Free Kontakt Libraries ReleasedBigcat Instruments has just released a great collection of many freeware sample libraries for Native Instruments Kontant 5. Basses, Saxophones, Pianos, Guitars, Pads, all new and ready for any Kontakt user to be downloaded and used in their main productions.

D. Smolken’s Double Bass
his multisampled double bass by D. Smolken is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported License. Consider this Kontakt version to be the same. This instrument can be used commercially as long as credit is given to D. Smolken.

It has Arco samples up and down in 5 velocity layers and sampled roughly every third note. Also there are Pizzicato samples in 3 velocity layers and again roughly every third note but with 4 round robins and instrument sound effects for both arco and pizzicato.

Saxophone Collection
Various sax instruments from public domain and creative commons samples. The showpiece of this collection are the Iowa Saxophones sampled by University of Iowa Electronic Music Studios. These Saxophones are fully sampled in 3 velocity layers with 375 samples all told.

Flame Studios Guitars
Nine Flame Studios Instruments for Kontakt. 5 guitars, 3 basses and a banjo. These were originally Giga format.

A Pad
Looking at all the cool pad sounds scattered around the web it struck me, why not just make a simple drop a pad into this and it will play Kontakt instrument. Name any wav file “A Pad.wav” and drop it into the A Pad directory replacing the public domain demo sound from OLPC. Kick up the A Pad Kontakt instrument and there is your new pad with fiddley EQ, Reverb and Envelope Knobs on. The Mod Wheel controls Release. Any sound becomes an instrument (of sorts).

Clean City Piano
Jeff from Critical Vibrations ran the samples through a de-noise filter and removed a 60-cycle hum. He also made it available for Ableton. I’m honored that he thought enough of the piano to convert it and thankful for his work in cleaning up the samples.

    Added as the top option (presuming I got it right) as a 70 meg zip file with all 375 Iowa Sax samples in one directory accessed by the different sax instruments. Note that the Ultimate City Piano for Kontakt is in a similar format with 30 ‘patches’ hitting the same sample directory.
    I think the Bigcat Instruments Piano Collection is torrented somewhere it certainly is available from tons of warez sites on most download type sites (note its also 1.75 gigs). Certainly anyone that wants to can create torrents, its fine with me and takes pressure off my mediafire account.
    Thanks for the story Producer Spot, my blog exploded with hits the past 24 hours. Much appreciated!
