Expressive Kontakt Cymbal Instrument
Version 1.5 contains a new nki with all the cymbals mapped across the keyboard so it is now possible to play the entire range of cymbals without having to load the multi. Alive Cymbals is the ideal complement for your music.
It's made from a set of 8 cymbals recorded with high-end gears (Audio Technica mics and Nagra LB recorder and preamps) in 88,2kHz 24 bit, edited in the same resolution and then down sampled into 44,1kHz 24 bit with Izotope SRC. Recorded in a warm room in stereo (close position), the sound is raw, vibrant, accurate, and extremely musical.
Main Features :
* 8 high-end cymbals : a Wuhan 27" china, a Zildjian 20" K Custom Dark Ride, a Meinl 18" Byzance Extra Dry China, a Paiste 16" Twenty Crash, a Meinl 14" Byzance Thin Crash, a Sabian 10" HHX Evolution Splash and a pair of Paiste 2002 Cup Chime (5" and 5.5"), recorded closely with stick, brush, mallet and/or bow with full sustain (download the manual for full details).
