Glitch Hero is the work of composer and EDM/glitch artist Spencer Nunamaker. Glitch Hero is perfect for minimalist, EDM, IDM, dubstep, chillwave, glitch, post rock, soundtrack, downtempo, dub and ambient music. It's also fantastic for sci-fi sound design and creating user interface SFX for games and apps. Each library covers a unique style of hand-crafted, sound-designed drums & FX. It features thousands of samples and dozens of flexible instrument presets for Kontakt.
Glitch Hero has been built from the ground up for Native Instruments' free Kontakt Player (VST, AU, AAX) and Komplete Kontrol platforms, including full support for Maschine and all S-Series keyboards. It's the perfect collection for composers, sound designers and anyone looking for unconventional musical ideas to round out their musical tool chest. This library is divided into 7 categories that tap into different themes and creative styles.
CRYSTAL is a collection of hundreds of unique, shatteringly crystalline, glitchy percussive strikes, stingers, multisamples, atmospheric pad synths and effects that will cut right through your mix. Crystal's unique sound comes from glass field recordings, twisted and mangled into an easy "out-of-the-box" solution for glitch percussion. It has a total of 692 hand-crafted sounds.
CUBE is a collection of 692 glitchy, crunchy, office-supply percussive sample. Each sound has been designed using carefully selected sources like paper crunches, snapping pencils, fax machines, water coolers, paper cups, and all kinds of other office-related sounds. From the rattling of your last few anxiety pills, to luscious dreamy pads, Cube has got your shift covered for your next game score, hot track, or quirky animation.
DRIP is a collection of 620 glitchy, organic, cutting, hollow, and razor-sharp percussive samples, along with FX, stingers, synth pads and leads. Painstakingly sound-designed by Spencer Nunamaker (JunoVHS), each sound comes from anachronistic signal sources like antique radios and turntables, then chopped, spliced and treated with modern analog effects.
LO is a dedicated Kick and Low Frequency FX library for the full version of Native Instruments Kontakt. It offers hcarefully sculpted electronic drum sounds and awesome warping effects for bass dives, transitions stringers and boomers with seriously fat low end with a dynamic and unique flavor.

From huge to tiny, from heavy to snappy, any flavor of hand-designed electronic kick you could want is in here.
SHIMMER is collection of shimmering, glittering, sparkly percussive samples - along with FX, stingers, risers, and lush ambient pads. From cute silly drums, adorable interface effects, to luscious risers and pads, Shimmer has got you covered for your next game or animation soundtrack. It includes 162 Magical Charms, 90 UX interface and video game power-up sound effects, 86 Wonderous Risers and Colorful Swells, 35 atmospheric and tonal synth pads and 90 Silly Drums.
SHUDDER is a collection of uniquely mangled, destroyed, deep, nightmarish and glitched percussive samples - along with FX, stingers, risers, and all the drones you need for your next horror soundtrack or dark electronic track. It includes 204 dynamic trailer hits and stingers, 84 dramatic risers and 213 textural ambiences and drones for horror, suspense and dark electronic production.
TAPE lets you explore sonic degradation and recombination with a unique selection of hundreds of individually handcrafted and uniquely-styled percussive strikes, stingers, multisamples and effects that will burn right through your mix. Tape's unique sound comes from low-fi analog tape recordings, further twisted and mangled through modern techniques. It features hundreds of selectable articulations and custom kits, atmospheric pads and synths, with a total of 754 hand-crafted sounds.
All of the sounds are designed for complete cohesion, so that any sound can blend or be sequenced with any other sound in the library. To this end, you can achieve great results simply by turning on the arpeggiator, tweaking the sequencer dialog and mashing a bunch of keys—the results will surprise you!
These libraries come equipped with flexible control features, like attack, release, transient offset, dynamic swelling, filter type selection, resonant filter sweep and a robust multi-mode Arpeggiator system that provides a full range of custom dynamic arpeggiation modes and step sequencer pattern creation options. There’s also a complete DSP effects rack in each preset with 18 FX types, including convolution reverb with 119 unique rooms, environments and FX spaces, such as cathedrals, churches, halls, bunkers, garages, tunnels, chambers, forests and tons of otherworldly special effect impulses.
