The Greek SanturThe ultimate Greek Santur virtual instrument. For Kontakt 5
This project is still being developed. If you are intered on purchasing the full version (8 gigabytes, 24bit), do not hesitate on contacting me.
Recorded at the Zero Gravity studios in Athens, Greece, The Greek Santur is a Virtual Instrument for Kontakt 5.
The Greek Santur has been developed with state of the art equipment and has been designed to cover the real instrument in an unprecedented way.
As an instrument developed for Kontakt 5, The Greek Santur can be used with any DAW in any form (VST, RTAS, AAX, TDM, AU) and even in stand alone mode.
Each note will be unique!Each and every single note of The Greek Santur has been recorded with three different dynamics (velocities) and each and every dynamic has been recorded TWICE (round robin 2), meaning that even if you managed to press that MIDI key two times with the same strenght, the sound you'll get will be completely different!
Each note of The Greek Santur can sound in 6 different and unique ways. You will never get the same sound twice!
9 Different Combinations!To give you the chance to achieve the color of sound you're really looking for, the santur has been recorded with three different sets of hammers (Wooden Hammers, Semi Soft Hammers and Soft Hammers) and with three different combinations of dampers (No Dampers, One Damper and Two Dampers). This way you will be able to control how sweet you want The Greek Santur to sound, how long you want those sustains, how rich in harmonics each note is.
You will have the opportunity to choose any hammer set playing with any amount of dampers and this way, to achieve nine different combinations of unique sound!
Two Microphone Sets!Every single sample of The Greek Santur has been recorded using two pairs of microphones: Close and Far.
With the help of these knobs, you will be able to adjust how dry or wet you want the santur to sound!
Real Muting of the Strings!When interacting with the MIDI footswitch, The Greek Santur will mute every sound. To make this as real as possible, we have even recorded the sound of the hands of the musician muting the strings! You can even control how loud the hands sound with an independent knob!
More goodies included!In addition to all of the above, each note (in each of the 9 combinations!) can also be played as a Thrill or Thrill crescendo (RR1, 1 Velocity)
Let the FX play!Last but not least, The Greek Santur also includes unique sound effects! It is perfect to experiment or even to use them for sound design.
- 5861 samples at 24bit-44KHz!
- Almost 8 gigabytes of unique sounds!
- That is The Greek Santur.
kFootsteps (Freeware)A footsteps library for Foley artists and audio editors. For Kontakt 4 and above.

Donate 5€ and I'll release any of the existing sets of footsteps you want in full 24bit - 48KHz quality. For free. Forever!
Donate 15€ and I will record any set of footsteps on any surface you want and make it available in full 24-bit 48KHz quality!*
Donate 30€ and I will add your name on the interface of kFootsteps! Also, I will record any set of footsteps on any surface you want and make it available in full 24-bit 48KHz quality!*
* Provided that I have access to what you are looking for! Please make sure to contact me beforehand
kFootsteps is a library for kontakt focused to aid those foley artists and audio editors who need to deal with foosteps and lack the time or budget to record, cut and sync them.
Using it is as easy as adding an instance of Kontakt to your DAW, selecting a type of surface and a type of shoe and finally, playing the MIDI keyboard in order to make the footsteps sound.
The idea is to develop a huge library with as many types of footsteps over as many types of surfaces as possible. From trainers walking over a carpet to boots walking over asphalt or even flip flops walking over waste ground!
The aim of this library, is to offer the audio engineer the ability to be able to program footsteps with a MIDI keyboard, without the need of recording and cutting a huge audio file in pieces and syncing every single step along with the talent's movements.
Each pair of shoes on each surface consists of 66 totally different samples distributed as follow:
* 12 samples: Walking slowly (CYAN KEYS)
* 24 Samples: Walking normally (BLUE KEYS)
* 12 Samples: Running (GREEN KEYS)
* 12 Samples: General emotes (YELLOW KEYS)
* 6 Samples: Jumping (RED KEYS)
16bit - 44KHz?
As I record and edit each set of samples, I will gradually add them to the library and make them available for free. The original samples are recorded at 24bit - 48KHz and my idea is that, through donations, I can eventually make the full quality samples available for free. This way, I will give the opportunity to everyone to have access to the library and if you appreciate my effort for keeping this project, with a small donation I can release the full quality samples and keep them in the existing library with full quality. For free. Forever.
You can also inquire on the possibility of me recording any type of footsteps you want and, provided that I have access to what you are looking for, with a small donation I will record, edit, and add the samples to the library. This way, you can help keeping this project alive.
This library is FREE OF CHARGE, if you have paid for it, get your money back.
You are entitled to distribute this library, but never charge for it.
