Terracotta is a sample library for Kontakt. It consists of 25 multisampled terracotta flowerpots, and includes other layers (such as guitar, music box and an organic sounding pad) to mix in as well. Surprisingly, flowerpots produce a clean, pleasing sound; somewhat like a celesta or glockenspiel.

Terracotta comes with 8 ready-made variations; each one of these is instantly playable offering a variety of options for setting the sound in the mix. The variation called Sustained, for example, uses reverse flowerpot samples mixed with an organic sounding pad to create a sound backdrop. Weighted is a preset that uses samples from a larger terracotta bowl to add warmth and more low-end to the pots. Every control that the preset uses is also manually editable.
Comes with 21 convolution impulses
These are custom made and work as great sound design tools; they can also be used to create pads/ ambiences. You can find these impulses as .wav files as well.
The delay is tempo synced, you can choose which timing you want from a drop down menu, or set it manually if you prefer. The delay and reverb effects come with 8 presets each, some simulating big halls or echoes.
