The Holy Ambiences library is an ambient pad, drone and soundscape instrument that we cultivated from some rather strange Christmas carol recordings that we cooked up, warped and manipulated. This odd little sound set was originally just one part of a strange collection of quasi-musical oddities mostly captured in one epic recording session somewhere around Christmas time, involving lots of Belgian beer and a few of our closest friends. These morphable custom ambiences were created by heavily, heavily, heavily manipulating a tiny, tiny slice of a certain old Christmas masterpiece. Refined to its absolutely purest form like some strange, precious and rare unstable element, only the smallest quantity is needed to unleash the true raw textural power contained within. Christmas power.
Each of these ambiences features multi-layer cross-fading and filter morphing for full expression and dynamic control. They can also be used individually as background drones, since each one is a standard format wav file with embedded loop points. Originally released by Tonehammer in 2009, we've updated the library to include a variety of useful performance shaping features and additional content.

Check out screenshots of our custom graphical user interface for Kontakt in the image gallery above. They provide a wide range of sound shaping parameter controls, each one totally automation-ready in your host environment or Kontakt's stand-alone mode.
This is a standard Kontakt open-format library, so the free Kontakt Player doesn't support this open-format Kontakt library. However, the sample directories are fully accessible to allow user customization, import and mapping into other wav-compatible software, sampler and synth formats.
The special Libraries tab doesn't support this open-format Kontakt library, but you can use the standard File browser tab, or import this library into the Kontakt database and Quickload tools for easy navigation, loading and organization.
