Virtuasonic has released Drums From a Car, a sample library for Kontakt derived from an experimental music and sound design project named Music from a Car. The basic idea was to play a car as a sort of musical instrument.
All the sounds come just from playing a car: by patting on the windows, punching and slapping the bumper, rubbing parts made of fabric or plastic, giving fuel, playing rhythms on the wings, the roof, and so on. Additional samples were recorded to complete the sample library. Kontakt's sound processing capabilities have also been used to alter the original samples and create new drums sounds.
All samples were recorded at 24 bit / 96 KHz and each Kontakt instrument is available at least in three versions: as part of a Kontakt Multi (original, altered, echo), EXT (mapped on a wider zone of the keyboard to extend its possibilities) and EXT Altered (processed using some Kontakt built-in FX).
- 30 instruments and 5 Multis for Kontakt.
- Up to 5 dynamics and 12 Round Robins.
- Pre-configured customizable FX section.
- 468 Samples (97 MB).
- 24 bit / 96 KHz.
- Formats: Kontakt 3.5+ / accessible WAV files.
Requirements: Native Instruments Kontakt 3.5+ or later (Full version).
Drums From a Car is available as a digital download at the introductory price of €16.95 (excl. VAT) until the end of June. The regular price will be €19.95 (excl. VAT).
