Soniccouture Releases Kora: 21 String African Harp For Kontakt Player NKS


Andre Louis: Kora Improv With MIDI PLayer video upload by Soniccouture

"Andre Louis improvises with the built in 'kumbengo' MIDI backing generator in Soniccouture's Kora VI."



via Soniccouture

A beautiful & fascinating African instrument, the Kora is hard to classify. With 21 strings and a cow-hide resonator, it's a type of bridge harp, but with some lute or guitar DNA in the mix.

The kora is made from a gourd, which is cut in half and covered with cow hide. This forms the resonator of the instrument. There are 21 strings, suspended by a double notched bridge - 10 on one side, 11 on the other. This is typical of a double harp and it is classified as such. However, because the strings originate from a 'neck' and cross a bridge into a resonator, this also makes it a lute.

Soniccouture’s VST version is incredibly playable and versatile, featuring a MIDI pattern player for authentic accompaniment.

• 40 VELOCITY LAYERS + MUTE ACCENTS / KEY OFFS • MIC + CONTACT CHANNELS

via Soniccouture

"€149 | $149

Intro Offer: 30% OFF Until December 29th 2023

Soniccouture wanted to make an old school-style drum machine.

But they wanted to do it with 21st century sampling techniques: round-robin samples, multi-channel sounds, generative sequencers.

Years in the making - the idea started life as a kind of reverse follow-up to Soniccouture’s Electro-Acoustic: 'let's make acoustic drums sound electronic'. But, it took them quite lot of experimentation and head-scratching to figure out exactly what that might look - and sound - like.

Now it’s ready - check it out!"

Soniccouture Releases Threnody: Avant-Garde Strings


videos by Soniccouture

"A preview of Soniccouture's Avant-Garde String Instrument - Threnody.
Featuring a 60 piece orchestra with 26 different multi-sampled articulations, it focuses on extended techniques used in sci-fi and horror movie soundtracks."

Playlist:
Threnody Strings: Preview

Threnody Strings: Product Tour



Kontakt Player NKS Sampled Instrument €249 | $299

60 Piece Orchestra
26 Articulations
3 Mic Channels

Kontakt Player 6 + NKS Compatible
For our first string library, we thought we’d aim for something a little different from the many string libraries already on the market. The focus in THRENODY is on avant-garde string articulations, such as those you hear in late 20th century orchestral music or science fiction film soundtracks. Although we did a few standard articulations as well, this library is full of col legno clattering, clusters, various ‘clouds’ of activity, glissandi, etc.

THRENODY features a massive string section of 60 musicians (16-14-12-10-8). We used over 30 microphones in the hall, and these have been mixed down to three stereo channels: the main tree, the spot mics, and the ambience mics.

THRENODY features 26 different articulations sampled across the entire orchestral range, which can be layered with an XY controller to create entirely new orchestral shapes and movements.

INTRO OFFER
Until June 4th you can get 20% off Threnody at the Soniccouture Website. No code required, price is marked.
