Vital Arts has announced the imminent release of Plectrum v2.0, the new cross-platform version of its virtual instrument collection, now powered by Native Instruments' Kontakt Player (v1.x was powered by the Windows-only Tascam GVI).


The acoustic instrument creations of Geoffrey Gee will be available to Mac OS X and Muse Research Receptor users for the first time and existing Windows users can purchase a crossgrade. In addition to the 185 instruments from the original Windows-only product, there are 45 new combination instruments called “Multis.” Kontakt 2 Player also allows users to create more custom multis simply by loading multiple instruments and setting a few parameters.

“Partnering with Native Instruments gives us a solid and mature cross-platform audio engine, and assures top quality support for the future, ” said Geoffrey Gee, creator of Plectrum. “The Kontakt engine handles the 24-bit 96k streaming requirements of Plectrum beautifully.”

Gee created his instruments by plucking, strumming, scraping, and tapping a variety of acoustic instruments and found materials. The recordings and ambience are purely acoustic, and the thousands of samples have been mapped to the keyboard and voiced in a way that allows the player to play naturally and expressively.

Pricing & Availability

The 12 GB library, which includes the Kontakt 2 Player, will be available on November 10th, 2008, for $299. Existing registered Plectrum users will be offered a $59 crossgrade price for a limited time.
