Audiority has announced the release of The Performer, a free sample library for Kontakt Player based on the sounds of the Chrysler 300C.
The iconic Chrysler luxury sedan that embodies world-class levels of craftsmanship and technology, as perfected and inspiring as a world class music instrument.
The sounds of The Performer are sampled from Chrysler 300C with pristine state of the art technologies and manipulated to be a highly playable, enjoyable and creative musical instrument. Special attention was given to the engine, most of the instruments deriving from it: basses, synths, pads, leads and effects. Also, using different parts of the car – mechanical and electronic, Audiority has created a percussion kit that is offered in naked and processed versions.
Over 1000 audio samples were directly recorded from the Chrysler 300C using Earthworks mics, Vovox cables, RME preamps and then processed in the analog world with Maselec and Elysia compressors, a Vintagemaker summing mixer and Ferrofish converters.
The Performer is capable of a wide range of sounds, from filthy basses with extremely low frequencies to futuristic electronica distorted leads, saturated melodic poly-synths and everything in between.
The good news is that The Performer works with the free version of Native Instruments Kontakt Player (version 5.5.1 or higher). The bad news is that limited copies are available, so just go and create an account now at Audiority and download this unusual sample library.
