sleigh-bellsSonokinetic has released Sleigh Bells, a free Christmas themed sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Sonokinetic brings you this treat, free for anyone to enjoy, but no less powerful than our paid-for libraries. We figured it’s a time for giving presents, and we wanted to thank all of you for the 5 years you kept Sonokinetic going strong, and growing to the company it is today…Thank You!

So for this special package, we donned our comedy Santa hats and recorded 6 different sizes of sleigh bells, ranging from just one bell to a 25 bell stick. The samples were captured using apogee hardware and a violet audio flamingo stereo microphone.

We’re providing loops in two tempi. Using Kontakt’s Time Machine function and our in-house developed ITM (Intelligent Tempo Mapping) the loops will adapt to your carol seamlessly. We have captured two meters (3/4 and 4/4) and two feels… straight(ish) called ‘trot’ and a shuffle-feel ‘gallop’ which Rudolph tells us keeps him in perfect sync with the other reindeer.

We’ve also captured a sleigh full of single hits, to create a set of round robins for maximum realism… that’s between 23 and 41 different hits per instrument.
