    RE: 90% off "The Orchestral Bundle" by Aria Sounds

    I initially posted "no brass" but that's actually not the case: Three items are actually included in this bundle that aren't listed in the upper list but have been added to the website near the bottom as bonus items. Since the listed flutes are supplied as part of the Ethnic Flute Bundle, the Bolivian Pan Flute, otherwise unavailable for separate purchase, is included. You also get the Classical Guitarist and the London Symphony Brass French Horns. This means you get everything on the Aria Sounds website except the Aurora Choir. Regarding the strings: Five string sections and four solo instruments, each with their own articulations and GUI/control, allow for great flexibility is sculpting your string sounds. There are a number of YouTube and SoundCloud examples around.

    Puremagnetik has an inexpensive deal this week---Six Ensoniq libraries (Five Kontakt instruments [with one additional Apple Loops folder], one Ableton/WAV library) for $10. The five Kontakt instruments share simple, common-featured interfaces (7 controls: Fliter cutoff & resonance;Mod speed & depth; Phaser depth, feedback, time & delay). Tweaking patches from the GUIs is minimal, nor radical. It appears that all the Kontakt samples are in AIF format
    Console Z | Volume 3 of the ASR-X Library



    – Puremagnetik


    Homegrown Sounds has an ongoing group buy (I joined for $15) and a newly-skinned update for Augment (the original interface is preserved as an option). This is an 11-layer synth and, if you know anything about HGSounds, it has phenomenal sequencing capabilities. The group buy is within reach of adding two more new Kontakt synths: 11-Layer Destiny and , a single-layer version of Destiny that can also stack the layer voices of Destiny into a single voice waveform. Check out the group buy here:
    Augment/Destiny for Kontakt Group Buy | Homegrown Sounds
    Destiny/Singularity is here . . . :
    Destiny Multi-Layer/Timbral Synthesizer for Kontakt 5.7 | Homegrown Sounds
    . . . and a FREE, Singularity LITE version is here . . . :
    Singularity Lite for Kontakt 5 | Homegrown Sounds
    . . . and, if you're on the HGSounds website, there is a FREE Kosmology/Multiverse/Metropolis (3 instruments) library here:
    Kosmology/Multiverse – FreeFall | Homegrown Sounds

    Gearplugz.deals has the Stimatized Drummer V1.1 Full Pack (Stigmatized Drummer, 6 Groove packs, 2 TCI packs for Slate Trigger) on sale until 1-31 for $18. I completely agree with the Sample Library Review (#64) comment that this is an underappreciated Kontakt instrument ("unloved gem")---and a real bargain at this price.

    Not a Kontakt library, but the current offering of Best Service's Galaxy-X libraries by VSTbuzz is worth taking a look at if you're interested in an instrument that has a lot of good-sounding content, samples and loops, and a fresh approach to creating entirely new sounds from existing patches. You can get lost in the possibilities from a single factory patch, and there are about a thousand of them---and that doesn't really mark what's available in the ~17GB of content. Definitely worth a look. Runs in Engine2, which is free.

    And---Hey---if you're coming across Kontakt libraries/instruments that aren't being mentioned in Samplecast, Sample Library Review, etc., please POST.
