The Clarinet for Kontakt introduces a new real-time playing concept that combines executive details with easy of use. The Performer Intelligent Technology © automatically adjusts a multitude of variables in order to get a real-time execution with stunning realism. Without any change you can play legato, a chord, staccato, accented, etc. Playing a chord, the legato is activated only for the active phrase during the chord, without cut notes and with different glide for each note interval.

PIT © also uses Modulation controller and key-switches in its work. In this case, Modulation controller switches from the non-vibrato to the vibrato mode in real-time, without sample loadings or cut notes. The key-switches allow you to control attack and release of a note, in real-time. In this case, pressing the C1 key-switch first and then playing a note, the sound results in a slide-up attack. Playing a note first (keeping it pressed), then pressing the C1 key-switch and releasing the note, the sound results in a fall-down ending.

Features:
- 48KHz, 24-bit, Mono sample resolution;
- Whole samples played, no loops;
- Hephaestus’ PIT © for a stunning real-time playing;
- 7 execution modes;
- Hephaestus’ Expressivity function, to adjust the attack smoothness;
- Auto key-clicks and breath noises with volume knobs;
- Presence knob, to adjust the sound power;
- Breathing knob, to adjust the background blowing noise;
- Position knob, to move the clarinet near or further across the sound field;
- Room knob, that manages IR samples to create the sound environment;
- Reverb knob, to adjust the reverb quantity;
- Oriental button, that switches to the arabic scale also changing the timbre;
- Phaser button, that makes active/disactive a phaser FX, good for some genres;
- Compressed .NKI, 130MB;
- Works on Kontakt 5.2 or newer.

I'd like to file a complaint. No free instrument should be this awesome! I have no idea how you did it (and I'm jealous), but grats on the scripting, the interface and the sound. I tried it on some midi files as the melody instrument where I would normally go sax or trumpet and it sounded flipping amazing.

Thanks bigcat1969 for the kind words! :)
A big merit also goes to Kontakt, that lets to get results like these with the powerful script and its internal sound engine. I've always been fascinated by the great libraries that include a lot of play modes for each instrument, switchable with buttons or MIDI CC. And with this clarinet, my target was to combine these play modes into one single play mode for a real-time execution, where the player can control the sound at the moment like the real instrument.

Thanks for this great freebie!

Note to other users: this thing can produce some pretty fun percussion parts (breaths and keyclicks) if you keep the note values short...

(just this instrument and the arp on my controller, nothing else!)
