Instrument Sampler

DESCRIPTION

** If you use this instrument and the included samples and snaps in any published material, please give me due credit where you publish it. Also, I respectfully request that you don't publish material that is only using this, playing a few chords and then call it your composition (this is a common request in commercial releases) - make actual productions that it is part of. **

This one looks a little like Porton Down but that’s pretty much where the similarities end… 3rd or 4th cousin maybe. However, it was always in the plans as part of the Biohazard series. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gruinard_Island)

It’s a resynth. Comes with 100 2-bar samples so even zipped the download is a bit large. Samples are from Kursk, Aralsk-7 and some of my own stuff run through Form. 50 snaps, do feel free to make so more. I’ll be happy to include other users’ banks.
It’s polyphonic and in tune if your samples are. Included samples are tuned to C and rooted at 60. In sync if your automation recordings are.
Automation system is taken from “Weirdo” by Andre Goc so credit to Kristian Thom too I believe. I highly recommend checking it out: https://www.native-instruments.com/en/reaktor-community/reaktor-user-library/entry/show/7411/

Hit some keys and keep the clock running.
Enjoy

Update 1.2
- Spiffed up sample map a bit
- Changed Bandpass to notch filter

I think that's covered by Aralsk 7 and Kantubek. I had a Sverdlovsk in mind but I think 4 biohazards is enough. Got a new series in the works + Modena update

I wasn't happy with the dirt section. Sound sculpting options were a bit too rigid. It'll be back. I finished reworking the insides, now need to update the graphics to reflect it. It all takes time, and Reaktor is not my first priority.. but it'll be back, eventually.
