9 Soundware releases Heartbeat K for Kontakt

12th July 2010

9 Soundware has announced the release of Heartbeat K, a set of sampler instruments for Kontakt. The idea behind the collection is the transformation of recordings of the human heart and other internal organs with the advanced signal processing capabilities of Kontakt. While its origins are in the previously released Heartbeat for the EXS24 format, this sound set is based on an entirely new concept, and the instruments have been designed from the ground up solely for this product.

The instruments are based on 224 samples. They were captured using an electronic stethoscope, which is more sensitive and capable of capturing quieter sounds compared to acoustic stethoscopes.

The 51 instruments in the sound set are divided into four categories:

The 24 MB download includes 51 .nki files and 224 WAV files (24-bit/44.1 kHz).

Heartbeat K is available now for $49.99 at www.9soundware.com.
