bigcat instruments releases free NSI Instruments for Kontakt    11th June 2017

bigcat instruments has released free NSI Instruments for NI Kontakt.

Magenta is a Google Brain project that has created something called NSynth which seems to be extracting the audio DNA from samples and then mixing it all together in a user controllable synth. While I can't give you the synth (it is highly confusing) which will hopefully someday come out as a VST, I can apparently use the NSynth Dataset to create more traditional though possibly funky sounding instruments. So far I've done a grand total of 15 instruments but more are probably on the way as the dataset contains about 1000...

Also I'm trying out Kontakt GUI Maker. The interface is really simple, but it does have a convolution reverb which sounds much better than regular reverb. Note these are all Kontakt instruments and need Kontakt 5.6.6.


Because the resource files are bigger than the instruments, I put them in a separate download. This makes every instrument download 90 megs smaller.
Unzip NST Resources in the same folder as the NST instruments you download (in 7-Zip use Extract Here).

This will make a NST Resources folder as you see in the picture below. This folder will have 3 files, a .nkc, a .nkr.& a .png file. All NST instruments will use this one resources folder.
