Colourform is a Kontakt 5 sample library of picturesque organic sounds. Besides from being a collection of unique atmospheric sound design, the library explores the link between sound and colour offering a unique inspirational experience. Each patch features 12 different sounds, that are each assigned a colour. These can then be blended and mixed in real time to produce new colours. Rather than standard knobs and sliders, this concept allows for a more visual link between what you see and what you hear.
Dual Music Box is a Kontakt instrument consisting of 2 multisampled music boxes. These 2 music boxes are complimented by a small collection of other sounds, designed to blend well with the music box tones.
Each patch contains 3 layers, the 1st layer is the Victorian Music Box, the 2nd is a tiny, bright music box and the 3rd varies between patches, for example glockenspiel/ synth strings/ string pluck.
If you enjoyed the free Victorian Music box, but want more options for realism and sound design, then Dual Music box is perfect for you. This product requires the paid version of Kontakt.
