The PSI Vibraphone is a 1.9GB 37 note virtual instrument using Native Instruments lossless .ncw compressed format samples. Each note of the 1960s 3 octave Premier 751 vibraphone has been meticulously sampled in our cinematic live room.
There are 4 main instruments: Sustain (pedalled) with soft and medium felt beaters and Staccato (unpedalled) with medium felt and hard (rubber) beaters.
All 4 have 3 velocity levels. The 3 bonus instrument are muted (hand muted unpedalled), Soft beater Vibrato and medium beater Vibrato (both using the original 1960s tremolo effect).
All 7 instruments were sampled using 3 pairs of stereo mics: centre (close) Stereo (wide) Room (distant).
The resulting instrument is playable in the full retail version of Kontakt 4.2.3 or above (not the free Kontakt Player).

The Clap V2 is a 410MB natural clap machine from Paper Stone Instruments using Native Instruments .ncw lossless compression format for faster loading times.
What makes the clap special is that you decide how many people you want clapping in your music, from 1 (C3) to 2 (C#3) all the way to 13 (C4). The Clap V2 has been rebuilt from the ground up to encompass 3 clap variants and improved interface features.
Whilst the original Clap was super tight, the Clap V2 has Loose, Natural and Tight clap variants making it 3 times the size and flexibility of the original.
The Machine Clap Section has also been reworked to be pre filter and each machine clap can be turned on and off. Each clap has 5 round robins and is multi-sampled at 4 velocities.
The Clap V2 was recorded using Close, Stereo and Room microphone techniques at Paper-Stone studios in Nottingham, England.
