    OMG---this one is huge. I don't want to post things that are going to end up on On Sale Now, Deals for the week of March 9, 2017 - Sample Library Review , but these three packages are more than just string orchestras with articulations. The ChairSelections, Divisi, Chord/Scale, and PatternMaker/Arpeggiators, among others, make this a monstrous deal. Looks like a deal that will definitely, again, make you really glad you own Kontakt.($100!).
    https://audioplugin.deals/

    For those of you who have been wanting Chromaphone and/or other AAS instruments/expansions, NI has a pair of good sign-on celebration bundle deals that might interest you (every instrument for $200; every expansion for $100). Until 3/12.
    https://www.native-instruments.com/e...stics-special/

    SoundEthers has a bundle offer of four of it's commercial Kontakt libraries (all except Spaces1.1 and the free Freefall) for ~$23 at KontaktHub. Often generated from field recordings, they can have a distinctively hauntic realistic edge. They use the Photosynthesis engine and they often make use of the multiple layer feature.
    https://www.kontakthub.com/bundle/Cinematic-Fields/

    And if you're looking for Kontakt percussion, this is a good time at VSTbuzz: Auddict's Drums Of The Deep (~$37) and Stigmatized Productions' Stigmatized Drummer ($16).

    HelloSamples has their fourth Kontakt SnakPak out, based on "Wild Water Percussions", for $11.50 (under $10 with the code SP4OMI until 3/13). These SnakPak libraries come with a pad-style instrument interface and are more versatile than the price would suggest.

    The Alpine Project has released their new free flute library.
    http://alpineproject.wixsite.com/main/flute

    Kudo to the NI programming/development staff for solving another library issue with FableSounds' Broadway Lites while FableSounds is off-line and incommunicado. This worked great for me:
    "Thank you for your patience. One of our developers was able to provide the NICNT file for your library, that Kontakt seems to be requesting. Please download the attached file named "Broadway_Lites_NICNT.zip", and double-click it to unzip it. Place the file named "Broadway Lites.nicnt" into your main Broadway Lites Library Folder, then try to load the library again. When Kontakt requests the NICNT File, simply point Kontakt to the ".nicnt file".*
    Please get in touch if you need more help.
    Best regards,
    Rocky @ NI"

    Again. I'm trying not to duplicate the information at On Sale Now, Deals for the week of March 9, 2017 - Sample Library Review or the KVR Newsletter for some current Kontakt gems and bargains, and I have no fiscal, compensatory or professional ties with any vendors mentioned. I just enjoy using a good Kontakt library/instrument, especially if and when I can obtain it at a bargain price.

    Urban Symphony and Urban Definition (WAV, ACID, REX, Kontakt, EXS24, HALion, Reason NN-XT, Apple Loops) are each available for $20 (70% discount) at Zero-G. The offer ends at 9.00 am (PST) Monday, 3-13; Use discount code URB70 at checkout.
    Urban Symphony has 55 nki files. 666 Orchestral Phrases are arranged two ways in the nki files: 27 Groups of 25 phrases (except for the last one) and by key in 22 nki, at least two Orchestral Phrases construction kits for each natural key and one for each sharp key. There are also 54 piano loops in five Piano Loops nki and seven harp loops in a Harp Loops file.
    Zero-G download: Urban Symphony (WAV, ACID, REX, Kontakt, EXS24, HALion, Reason NN-XT, Apple Loops)

    Urban Definition has 150 nki containing 48 full construction kits (over 800 loops), the remaining nki grouping drumloops (250 loops), single hits (1550) and multi-sampled synth instruments (over 50).
    Zero-G download: Urban Definition (WAV, ACID, Kontakt, EXS24, REX, Reason NN-XT, Apple Loops)

    As always, good info on the Zero-G website. It's difficult to not have fun with these packages.

    If SampleLogic's impressive new Rhythmology looks a little steep, there is a less-expensive, somewhat-similar, simpler fore-runner, with a lot of adjustment and randomization features, back on sale at KontaktHub: The Turner MkII (v5). I passed on this the first time around but I'm glad I have it now because it's a lot of fun to work with. It doesn't download with the manual but the manual is available on its page at KontaktHub, and it quickly gets you up and running.
    https://www.kontakthub.com/product/Turner-MKII/

    In a previous post I mentioned Hideaway Studio's Kontakt synths. An impressive synth orchestra and synth choir for $18, each. Other, inexpensive yet impressively programmed soft-synths with experience, historic flavor, and insight. Warning to those with GAS: I did not come away from this website financially unscathed (but a satisfied bargaineer, nonetheless).

    A $NZ 45 (~$32 US) donation will entitle you to a 14GB download of the Lux|Nox PERC+ Redux percussion library for Kontakt (full version, 5.5 or higher). The details start here:
    MODWHEEL, Sample Libraries, Virtual Instruments Kontakt New Zealand
    https://givealittle.co.nz/cause/tironuimusictrust

    BigFish Audio is having a 50% sale on a number of Kontakt and KLI libraries. Now, through March 21:
    Big Fish Audio - Products

    Zero-G is having a $30-off per library sale (for libraries $40 and over, some exceptions:Vocaloid*titles,*Ethera, Ethera Soul Edition, Surface Tension, Deeva, Velvet Vocal, Phaedra, Disco Platinum, Shadowlands and any title that would normally cost less than $40.00). Sale ends Sunday (3-18) at midnight PST. Use coupon code THIRTY (Which also works with their "Special Offers" link). Here are some libraries between $40-50 that qualify for the $30 off:
    Zero-G Audio Samples

    If you purchased Kirk Hunter's Diamond Symphony Orchestra last summer from VSTbuzz, note that there is an upgrade and that the download has been restructured to a smaller number of RAR files. It was recommended to me to take the time to download anew and reinstall.

    Zero-G Nostalgia is on flash sale for $30 (65% off). This one is pretty much a Swiss Army knife for classic vintage synth and drum machine sounds. Over 1100 nki patches. Offer ends at 09.00 am (PST) Tuesday 21 March. Use code N65 at checkout.

    HGS is introducing the Kontakt synth "Movement" for $20. I haven't had a chance to play with it yet but the video suggests it is a fully featured and has an "XY"-feature interface (think Octomorph, Eris, etc.) and multiple randomization options, with the capability of quickly generating complex, evolving sounds (the developer mentions in a posting that each patch has "414 saved parameters per preset + 31 arrays"). Info and video are here:
    Motion for Kontakt 5.6 | Homegrown Sounds
    RE: Cassetto, the gift that keeps on giving---From the vendor: "This is the final week of the Cassetto + 11 Free Products Sale just in case any of you still don’t have it. For those that do I have added another bonus product to say thanks for taking part."
    Cassetto for Kontakt 5 + 11 Free Products | Homegrown Sounds

    Zero-G has a 3-for-$20 for select sample libraries (only one or two Kontakt titles). Simply place any three ELIGIBLE TITLES in your shopping cart and check out - the discount will be applied automatically - no coupon code is required. IMPORTANT: do not put more than 3 titles in your cart or the discount won't work! However you can order another three titles for $19.99 as many times as you like. Offer ends 3-27 at noon PST. Select from this list:
    https://www.zero-g.co.uk/store/c131....100&submit2=Go

    Again, I don't want to duplicate other newsletters but the RealiVox offering of "The Ladies" from audioplugin.deals is probably as low as you'll ever see that good vocal library. I got it on a previous sale but paid twice as much (still worth it).

    By now, everyone has probably seen the great deal on five Soundiron Kontakt libraries from plugin.deals, and, again, I don't want to duplicate info from the KVR Newsletter, but I did want to pass along some info about a Kontakt freebie from Channel Robot, one of those underappreciated maniacal Kontakt instrument makers who incorporate random and stochastic compositional elements into their software instruments---something I enjoy (HomeGrownSounds, SoundDust, Audiofier, SampleLogic, AudioModern, etc., come immediately to mind---makers who have expanded the arppegiator/sequencer functions of Kontakt instruments with creative scripting). Oddly, the ChannelRobot website doesn't even mention their Drum Factory series and Grid Machine series instruments, and they can be bizarre to track down. Even though Loopmasters is the linked vendor, the individual instruments are generally readily available at PluginBoutique and the series bundles at KontackHub.
    Although FreeForm, their free Kontakt synth, doesn't have the wild pattern generation and arpeggiation of other ChannelRobot instruments, it is an object lesson in using LFOs and the dynamic automation of parameters:
    FREE STUFF – channelrobot.com

    This free one from HomeGrownSounds, is an object lesson in randomization, sequencing and arpeggiators:
    Kosmology/Multiverse – FreeFall | Homegrown Sounds

    Speaking of free stuff, registered users of KontactHub can download, for free, AtomHub's Trumpett, SoundDust's Tiny Chaos Engine, and SoundEthers' Space Evolutions.

    Channel Robot has a free version of it's Matrix Grid Machine available on its website (along with the previously mentioned FreeForm soft synth):

    Some newbies, freebies, and a heads-up:

    Some new offering from some of those vendors who embrace the random and chaotic possibilites in Kontakt scripts (Channel Robot, Sound Dust, HomeGrown Sounds), and some freebies definitely worth investigating.

    Channel Robot's Grid Machines Bundle with drum/percussion sample sets (30):
    https://www.kontakthub.com/product/Grid-Machine-Drums/

    SoundDust's Infundibulum generates a lot of sounds quickly and easily. 34. If you're familiar with Pendelonium, you'll probably enjoy Infundibulum. I am.
    https://www.kontakthub.com/product/Infundibulum/

    While we are on the KontaktHub page, I'll mention some of their offerings that I have been recently pleased with:
    Nice variety and utility: https://www.kontakthub.com/product/Legacy-Bundle/
    Nice approach, sounds good: https://www.kontakthub.com/product/Synthophone/
    No longer on sale: https://www.kontakthub.com/product/u...ontakt-bundle/
    Previously owned this; quality programmer: https://www.kontakthub.com/product/T...ecial-Edition/

    Homegrown Sounds' Motion has entered its group-buy phase at $25 and has already achieved its first level:

    If you interested in any of the Cassetto Bootlegs (Cassetto instruments that use individual Kosmology or Multiverse sample sets), there's not much time left to purchase them.

    Rast Sound has a new offering, Artsy Beats, along a new tack, for 8:
    https://www.rastsound.com/downloads/artsy-beats/

    Here's a freebie from Half Light Sampling, an offshoot of their inexpensive ambient library Nuclear Winter (4.49). Being personally overloaded with "ambient," "efx," and "soundscape" libraries, I am appreciating these types of libraries with melodic components more and more.
    http://www.sampleism.com/halflightso...learwinterfree
    http://www.sampleism.com/halflightso.../nuclearwinter

    Another freebie from Dream Audio Tools:
    http://new.dreamaudiotools.com/dream...ree-music-box/

    A lot of freebies are, understandably, teaser subsets of their parent libraries/instruments. Even though that's the case for Super Audio Boy, ". . . cut from Super Audio Cart . . . ," it's a freebie that will probably get a lot of use because it has a lot of features (including layering, selectable randomizations, and more) and can quickly create a lot of sounds:
    http://impactsoundworks.com/product/super-audio-boy/
    Thanks to Impact Soundworks for this one!

    Check out recent posts for other freebies.

    Heads Up: In the latest KVR Newsletter, a $10 offering from Westgate Sounds called the Incantations Kontakt Preset Pack, which contains over 300 nki files and multis. Please read the requirements at the bottom---the patches are useless unless you already own or separately purchase the Incantations sample set (~$70).
    http://www.kvraudio.com/news/westgat...set-pack-37082

    I just received the latest from www.audioplugin.deals and it's a big bundle of AudioThing Kontact libraries/instruments (complete) and other plugins. I purchased the AudioThing Komplete Kontakt Bundle from them a while ago and it's good stuff, worth checking out.
