A pulse engine for Kontakt with example eBowed Guitar samples

The story

Inspired by the music of Reich and Glass, this library allows you to fade between different rhythmic patterns to create subtle textures. The samples are taken from an eBowed Electric Guitar and are fully tempo mapped to sync with the tempo in your DAW.

Feel free to use this Pulse Engine Template to create your own Pulse samples for Pianobook!

  • Pumping synth sound - easy to use and tweak!

    Another amazing library! I like this sub-bass pulse sound yet I often have a hard time finding or creating the sound that I like. With this library, you can easy tweak to create the sounds that you want. You can get the rhythm 4/58/16/32, very professional and, of course, the sound quality is excellent!

  • A great rhythmic instrument!

    The most important thing that you need to know about this instrument is that it is tempo synced! Other than that, the sound is great, and the provided options give you a nice way to customize the sound. I'd like to see more though, such as a phaser or a filter of some kind. It's not big deal though, since you can always add your own effects.

  • +1 for the Splosh knob.

    This library offers a great pulsing synth which is unique not so much in its sound but certainly in its character and how it offers you control over the sound. Being able to tweak the pulse rate is a great advantage and makes for some great filmic music.

  • Ooooo! A Tempo-synced library!

    This is a really cool library. The very first thing I had to try was starting my DAW playing and then I changed the tempo to see if Pulses would solo along. It did! Super cool being able to blend quarter note, 8th note, 16th note and 32nd note pulses. I also love that I can take the FX off to apply my own. This is a really useful library, and really well executed. I also appreciate the fact that the author has invited others to use his pulsing Kontakt template with other samples. I think that's both generous and really cool!

  • Great concept but im not a huge fan of the source sound

    This is a really nice GUI with some great rhythmic options. It's also very nice that its tempo synced to the DAW. Unfortunately for me i just don't like the source sound that much in the context of these rhythmic pulses. I would rather just take a pad sound i really love and put it through an arpeggiator. Despite me not liking it that much its still a quality instrument and I'm sure others will like it a-lot as i see they do.
