Features of the NI Kontakt Pure Mandolin Sample Library

  • Multi-sampled down and up pick strokes over 3 velocity zones with extensive KSP control. Strings 1 through 4 were sampled chromatically up to the 12th fret. The first string was sampled up to the 15th fret.
  • 12X round robin cycles of plucked notes.
  • Extensive KSP scripting giving control over fingering options on the fretboard of the mandolin creating a wide variety of tonal colors.
  • Various articulations - half step slides, tremolo (both sampled and KSP scripted), scripted muted strings, 2 articulation settings for attack control to emulate slurs.
  • A mandolin CHOPS Kontakt instrument which creates a signature bluegrass strumming style with selection of major, minor, dominant 7th, fully diminished and half diminished chords - And much more!

*Download purchase only - the download is a 2 part .rar file - once both parts are downloaded, open part 1 only and part 2 will self-extract. We suggest you use the free utility RAR Expander for OSX - http://rar-expander.en.softonic.com/mac or UnRarX - http://www.unrarx.com/. We have found Stuffit Expander to be problematic.

*Full version of Kontakt SAMPLER 4+ required. Will only run on the Kontakt PLAYER for 15 minutes in demo mode.*
