Download a full symphonic orchestra instrument for Kontakt!
Do you want to produce warm and heavy full orchestra chords for FREE? Thanks to Sonus, it is now possible! Because some VST either sound too flat or cost too much, they’re giving away an awesome and free Kontakt Orchestra Chord library! To be honest, it’s one of the best orchestra sounds I ever test ?!
How to download the Free Chord Kontakt Library?
All you have to do is register on SonusScore and you’ll receive the free Kontakt Instrument by mail!
The installation process is very simple: after getting the instrument, you’ll have unpacked the zip file in any folder you want! Just keep in mind that the chosen path should not be too complicated as you need to browse to the folder every time you’ll open the .nki-files!
To do so, launch KONTAKT, click on FILES, and then LOAD. Browse to the specific folder where you have saved FREE ORCHESTRA CHORDS, double-click on the desired nki-file and you are good to go! Alternatively, you can just drag and-drop the nki-file into KONTAKT.[stextbox id=’alert’]N.B: This instrument requires KONTAKT 5.5.2– if necessary, update your KONTAKT in the NI Service Center. Also, FREE ORCHESTRA CHORDS is NOT a “Powered by Kontakt”-library, so you cannot add it via the ADD LIBRARY button on the side panel. Instead, you will have to add it manually or save its path under the QUICK button in the menu.[/stextbox] [soundcloud url=”https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/292354105″ params=”color=ff5500″ width=”100%” height=”166″ iframe=”true” /]
A perfect instrument to make cinematics…
The warm and natural sound of this free Orchestra Kontakt Instrument immediately reminds you of sweet Hollywood blockbusters made by Hans Zimmer such as “the Pirates of the Caribbean”,”Gladiator”, “The Last Samurai”, “The Dark Knight Trilogy”, “Inception”, and “Interstellar” .
You can play the chords with the entire orchestra, layer it with extra-low string notes or high string chords or plainly play entirety at once. Playing with low velocity triggers the major chord, playing with high velocity triggers the minor chord.
