Tuned Micro is a compact yet powerful multi-instrument collection focusing on a variety of our unique stringed and tuned percussion instruments. We took a dozen of the popular instruments found in our String Bundle and Tuned Percussion Bundles and selected a core set of samples from each that offer a good introduction to the signature style, flavor, tone and quality you can expect from our full libraries. You'll find a great selection of content from our Bamblong, Circlebells, Cylindrum, Imbibaphones, Kalimba, Music Box, The Struck Grand, Toy Glockenspiel, Twine Bass, Waterharp, Whaledrum and Zitherette.
The Tuned Micro library has been programmed with a very unique interface that combines some of our most powerful design features. First, we've provided a dual-layer matrix that allows any of the 20 individual instrument articulations available in Tuned Micro to be loaded and played instantly on demand. With two independently controllable layers, you can load and play any two articulations simultaneously (such as the Bamblong and Water Harp), with customizable volume, attack, start offset, release gating and pitch-shifting for each layer. Each of the controls can be automated and changed in real-time, allowing truly unique sonic possibilities.
NOTE: This product includes both the standard Native Instruments Kontakt 4.2.4 open format presets and the ReFill version, designed for Propellerhead's Reason 6.0.2.
Kontakt & Reason ReFill Formats
This library is designed for the full retail version of Native Instruments Kontakt 4.2.4 or later. Kontakt is an industry-standard advanced virtual instrument software platform. 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. Learn more about Kontakt by Clicking Here.
This is a standard Kontakt open-format library, so the free Kontakt Player does not fully support it and can only run it in a limited "demo mode". However, the sample directories are unlocked so you can use them in 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.
The ReFill portion of this library is designed for the full retail version of Propellerhead's Reason, version 6.0.2 or later. We’ve included 22 Combinator and 22 NN-XT presets in the ReFill package, featuring custom front panel user interface controls and artwork. These NN-XT and Combinator presets have been optimized for performance on 32 bit systems, with 16 bit sample data and a slightly reduced soundset to allow for lower memory usage. The sample directories are also fully accessible to allow user customization, import and mapping into other wav-compatible software, sampler and synth formats.
