CMusic Production has announced the release of Small Saw, a free Native Instruments Kontakt library featuring samples of a saw performed with a violin bow.
Usually, this instrument is used by artists of the original genre. It has a specific sound issued with the help of a violin bow. The saw was performed by Igor Talashov, which you can see in the clip below.
The Small Saw Kontakt instrument features a wide range of articulations such as Legato, Portamento and Gliss-Up, as well as Glissando velocity control. The effects of the saw are added for more authenticity.
There is a total of 487 samples recorded at 44.1 kHz/24-bit, leading to a size of 257MB (on disk). Keep in mind that the library requires a full version of Native Instrument Kontakt. The free Kontakt Player version isn’t supported.
