Sonokinetic has released a free Sleigh Bells instrument for Kontakt 4 and 5.
For this special package, Sonokinetic donned their comedy Santa hats and recorded 6 different sizes of sleigh bells, ranging from just one bell to a 25 bell stick. The samples were captured using apogee hardware and a violet audio flamingo stereo microphone.
Loops are provided in two tempi. Using Kontakt's Time Machine function and Sonokinetic's in-house developed ITM (Intelligent Tempo Mapping) the loops will adapt to your carol seamlessly. They captured two meters (3/4 and 4/4) and two feels... straight(ish) called 'trot' and a shuffle-feel 'gallop' ("which Rudolph tells us keeps him in perfect sync with the other reindeer").
Sonokinetic also captured a sleigh full of single hits, to create a set of round robins for maximum realism... that's between 23 and 41 different hits per instrument.
