Zero-G Orchestral Cinematic Bundle for Kontakt
From producer Dan Graham, these four libraries were recorded in Liverpool's famous Parr Street studios with all the instruments played by world class musicians from the Liverpool Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.
Whether scoring for cinema or simply composing an orchestral track, these libraries deliver a level of realism that is unmatched by other orchestral libraries.
Each library is a great tool in itself, but they also work incredibly well blended with each other or alongside other premium orchestral sample libraries.
See below for further details on the products in the bundle.
Animato String & Flute FX for Cinema
Animato contains 3000 samples and 139 separate Kontakt instruments each with its own custom GUI created especially for this project.
Featuring world-class instrumentalists from the renowned Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, Animato is a uniquely realistic, expressive and playable Orchestral Effects library. With a wide sonic range from chaotic, tense effects to beautiful undulating pads. Distant pianissimo sirens can shift seamlessly to fortissimo ungodly screeches all at the simple command of your Mod Wheel.
"Animato is a seriously versatile collection." - Future Music (Rating 9/10)
“Animato is a rare thing among orchestral sample libraries. It’s not trying to be “like” anything else. The sound palette is unique, highly usable, and best of all, inspiring.” – Iain Roberton, producer, programmer, engineer
Spiritoso: Live Cello Phrases
A 17Gb collection of thousands of live recorded phrases, rhythms, chords and arpeggios all compressed down to 8Gb of material using Kontakt 4's new lossless compression technology.
The fifty-seven Kontakt 4 instruments allow patterns to automatically sync to the tempo of your projects and a wide variety of chord, rhythm and scale types can be selected using key-switches. The dynamic level pp to ff can be smoothly crossfaded by mod wheel, the ensemble size can be zoomed from solo to 12 players, and two mic positions (close and room) can be chosen or blended. All of this adds up to incredible sonic control.
"A highly flexible library of riffs that could be used to add extra realism to your main string sounds." – Music Tech
Luminoso: Live Violin Phrases
A15GB collection of thousands of live recorded 6-bar looped phrases compressed down to 7GB using Kontakt's lossless compression technology. Despite recording only two players, the instrument cleverly layers up to 6 different bars in real-time for the effective sound of a 12-piece string section, or if you wish, you can dial it down to the sound of a solo violin..
Despite being made from pre-recorded phrases, Luminoso remains highly controllable. This has been achieved by recording the same patterns across a wide pitch and dynamic range with many scale variations, by choosing patterns that blend in particularly well to a wide variety of musical styles, and then by allowing you to automatically sync to the tempo of your projects with a wide variety of chord, rhythm and scale types all controlled with key-switches. Dynamic levels pp to ff can be smoothly cross-faded by mod wheel, the ensemble size can be zoomed from solo to 12 players, and two mic positions (close and room) can be chosen or blended.
"A wide array of rhythms have been captured (everything syncs to host tempo) and the inclusion of filtered, 'mutated' and fully keyboard-extended patches sweetens the deal. Beautiful." - Computer Music (Rating 9/10)

Just released! Perpetuo is an 8 GB collection of thousands of live recorded looped phrases designed for use with Kontakt v5.2. Perpetuo gives you the advantages of fluidity and realism of recorded patterns and phrases plus many of the advantages of the flexibility of a standard orchestral library. What´s more, despite only recording one player, the ensemble size can be cleverly increased from a soloist to two, or three, players.
