First, check out the 2 masters: Samulis Xylophone and Bspendlove Piano. Then please come back here :)

I always want to do something free for the cause of good, in a legal way, of course. So I rounded up a couple nutheads and started recording little samples in metal music. The project started a while ago and ended up stuck since we had no time. Now I try to revive it.

Download here (Works with Kontakt 5 & above) - 394.95 MB
Demo Here

This is version v0.1, please please do not expect anything super duper professional. We update and add stuff to our project on this thread.

Consists of mostly loops. There are Drums, Riffs, Strats, Short Strats (not-loop) and Guitar Solos. Composition and performance were done by this nutcase. Project leading, editing, programming and additional FX were done by me and another moron.

If you have any question or complain or hates, please dump it here or privately at elitistinen.cypherpunk@gmail.com

Since we're so fucking inexperienced in audio editing that we actually took long time to edit something so little like this. We're a bunch of unprofessional morons trying to do something for good.

Please forgive us

Ooooo! :P

I will have to download this for sure, what version of Kontakt 5? I only have 5.0.3.5812, just making sure it wasn't made on a version above. :)

:/ Shit, I should downgrade this... I'm using 5.2. Arrg. I should even use Kontakt 4 instead of 5.

Ahh yeah man, I had the same idea but could not be bothered to drag around 150 samples of the Piano library to make it Kontakt 4 compatible..

Message me when if you do!

And also, did you still want to help out on that project of mine?

Hey that's pretty cool!
Can you rework the demo a bit though? There's WAAAAAAY too much reverb on that. :)

150? Aww... :P

They xylophone was 1010 samples and I had to make it twice due to a bug! Fun fun. :)

This sounds great from the demo so far, I wish you the best of luck on getting this done!

As mentioned no mic positioning, and each sample covers semi-tones (Otherwise there would be a tad more :P)

Did I say 150? How does that work? 88/2 44 x 5 velocity layers = 220 (Not much different ey? xD) Yeah I am leaving this for free, I am not actually planning on making money unlike your one :P

Stuff recording over 1000 samples and releasing it for free, I would rather get paid for the time I spend doing it and I would do what you done, Make it free for a week :P

The new library I have planned will be around 12 velocity layers (with samples per key), 2 different mic positions and 3 piano models

---> THIS will be a good experience and my fingers may feel like they are on steroids due to the amount of clicking I think I will do... :( I will release one piano model for free (1 week only).

It's much more rewarding at least to me to release it for free/PWYW. Over 1,000 people got to have a great xylophone vsti to use and by allowing people to make donations with tiered rewards (e.g. for $10, get a previous product; for $20 get something else in addition) you can most likely cover your costs of hosting etc. :)
