Hi! I am Alex Goroshko, composer and founder of Soul Samples company!
We know that every musical instrument is alive and unique with own voice and soul. Our goal is to capture that natural sound and expand functionality of the real instruments in virtual format.
Ocarina is our first sample library for KONTAKT!
Instrument has a magical soft, soothing and slightly hissing sound. It сould be easily used as solo or mixed with other instruments in numbers of different music genres.
PLEASE NOTICE: this is a free trial version, contains only Sustain and Staccato articulations (5 notes inside each one).
Ocarina library (full version) has 8 articulations, 4 round robbins, 3 dynamic layers, close and room mics, ADSR, 3 spatial effects, HP and LP filters, tuning section, dynamic and noise controls.
Although the functionality is quite large, all the controls are arranged by sections, it allows you to get quick access to each element, so you can quickly shape the sound you want, without the use of additional tools for sound processing.
Add this rare instrument to collection and bring soul to your music.
You can listen to demos and get full version now using the link below!
Leave a review to let others know what you thought of the instrument!
Lovely sound but useless
I love the idea that samplists who are looking to go pro might share scaled down products here in order to gain some customers. I think it's a neat business model and a way that the companies and the community can benefit. However, it seems to me that there should be a better way to accomplish those goals than this. An instrument with 5 chromatic pitches available in two articulations isn't even as useful as an audio demo, IMHO. Providing one complete articulation seems like a much better compromise. It's not really worth downloading this, regardless of whether you're planning to buy this library. I'm sorry to say it's not worth the hard drive space.
After a fair bit of fiddling around, I was able to get some sounds out of it, but the interface is pretty buggy. At times a key would trigger the sound and at other times the articulation, but not the sound. Hope to see this library get a remake as there is potential.
Could be a lot better
I like the instrument but this is a very limited cut down version of it. It's just not enough to to draw me in to buy the full version.
This is not even a demo. It's an advertisment...
Do not bother downloading this. It is a very restricted demo library with the intentions of a leading you to buy the full instrument, which is OK in some cases, but this one is VERY limited. I was blown away by the GUI design and the amount of options displayed on it, but something was wrong. I could only play the notes C5-E5 on the sustain articulation, and that's it. Everything else is completely unusable, and in my opinion it doesn't represent the pianobook community, as it has not given enough for us to even consider this a demo, but an actual ad.
