Old Timer has released Plink 2, a Kontakt instrument that provides a diverse collection of plinky sounds.
To create this instrument Old Timer sampled a wide variety of sources, including old and new synths, vintage guitars, a ukulele, a banjolele, a music box, toy instruments, a beaten-up piano plus 'found' sounds like kitchen glasses and a bicycle wheel.
Plink 2 builds on the success of the original Plink Kontakt instrument by adding a more sophisticated user interface, additional sample sets and a dedicated FX section with bespoke convolution reverbs, delay and a multimode filter to sculpt the sound.
The re-designed GUI was created by the team at Sound Aesthetics Sampling. For the update the sample sets were also tweaked, start points adjusted and some of the more wayward samples tuned to produce a more professional sounding instrument.
With the new GUI, polished samples and dedicated FX, new life has been breathed into the original plinky sample set. This makes Plink 2 a better sounding, and more versatile and fun instrument to play and explore.
Plink 2 is available at Kontakt Hub now and costs £12.50 (intro price of £8.75 until the end of November 2018).
