Soundiron has released the Breaker drum library for Kontakt 4/5.
This breakbeat-centric drum collection features kicks, snares, toms, hats, cymbals, bongos, clicks, hand claps, finger snaps and more. It also features a number of lead, bass and pad synth presets derived from the raw source waveforms.
Geared toward hip hop, electro, soul, funk, pop, breakcore, drum n' bass, garage, dub, techno, glitch, 2-step, trip hop, illbient, dub-step and house, Breaker features the Uberpeggiator step-sequenced arp system and the new "Mega-Mixer" for customizable kit creation. The custom Kontakt UI features tempo-synced pitch, amplitude and resonant lowpass filter LFOs with selectable envelope shaping, along with 3-band EQ and Convolution controls on the front panel.
The library comes with 40 custom FX presets, including several bass, lead, pad and atmospheric synths and pads. All presets feature automatable attack, release, offset, swell, key-switching, EQ, room and effect convolution reverb, and a range of other effects controls.
Breaker was designed for the full version of Kontakt 4 and later, but the open wav directories allow the samples to be imported and converted to any other wav-compatible format.
- 1,464 Samples (standard PCM wav).
- 50 .nki files (unlocked open format).
- 350 MB installed (297 MB Download).
- 24 bit / 48kHz stereo PCM wav format.
- Format(s): Kontakt 4.2.4/Kontakt 5 .nki and PCM .wav.
$39 MSRP / $29 special into price (until 20th March, 2012).
Note: The full retail version of Kontakt is required to use all the .nki instrument program presets included in this library. The free Kontakt "Player" does not support this library.
