Icebreaker Audio releases the Akebono Collection for Kontakt

Icebreaker Audio

Icebreaker Audio has released the Akebono Collection, a sample-based emulation of the Akebono Koto Synthesizer – a unique suitcase instrument from Japan – for Native Instruments Kontakt 4 & 5.

Akebono was released exclusively in Japan some time in the 1980s. It was designed as a portable practice instrument for Koto players, and as such it features many unique features that are intended to make performing in the traditional style a lot easier than using a MIDI keyboard.

All sounds were meticulously sampled and integrated into in a custom Kontakt instrument that emulates the performance options available on the original hardware.

Key Features:

  • All 15 instrument sounds and 13 percussion sounds sampled.
  • 24-bit 48kHz sample quality.
  • Original performance features emulated with custom scripts.
  • 7 impulse responses of the original speaker.
  • 5 custom and easy-to-use effects: Amp, EQ, Mod, Echo, and Dynamics.

Price: £12.50 (approx. $20 / €15) from the Icebreaker Audio website.
