Quena Light features a flute with a nice vibey sound
and very good playability. It includes 3 realistic
presets as well as a “poly” preset which allows you
to play chords.
It’s quite realistic, I was impressed by the work of
the trainees Camille De Grasset and Lucas Barbier:
they did a great job recording and programming the
various velocity layers and the authentic sounds.
An extra polyphonic patch is included, and you’ll
notice that the raw sound of the flute works very
well with pads :)
Only Spring Drum is a unique percussion/effect
instrument based on a Remo Spring Shape.
Articulations include striking with resonance of the
spring, springless impact and a series of effects.
The strikes were carried out with a drumstick on the
skin, the plastic edge and the metal edge of the
instrument. For the effects part, the instrument was
shaken, rubbed, blocked and turned, and these these
different techniques were combined to create the
most unusual effects.
It was created by Antoine Zago and cAptAin xLr. With
a powerful, unusual sound, it will be perfect for
creating original rhythms or adding cinematic
effects to your music.
The numerous velocity layers and playing techniques
make it super responsive, and quite a few extra
patches offer ‘intergalactic’ sounds with
down-pitched or reversed effects. A very original
instrument, highly recommended!
Both libraries are available for download for Native
Instruments Kontakt 5.8 or higher (full version).
