Hey what’s good fam, back with another Big Fish Friday for ya!
Had some things going on the last few weeks but I’m back with a good one for ya!
Today I’m checking out Vintage Vibe, let’s peep it!
So what is Vintage Vibe?
This is a new Kontakt library that’s dedicated to capturing the sound of the 1960s and 1970s in a collection of multi-sample instruments.
So you get keys, you get drums, guitars, bass, and percussion instruments, all ready to load up into Kontakt with a custom interface for tweaking.
The sound of the library is aimed at classic Rock, R&B, Soul, Funk, Country, and Jazz.
The have nice “classic” sounds and also crazy chaotic/distored versions.
But the main aim is to provide a nice, warm, organic instrument library.
This library works in the Kontakt Player 5 so you don’t need to own Kontakt in order to use it, which is always good for those that don’t own it!
- content: 10GB+
- format: Kontakt player 5, Kontakt 5, Refill
- price: $199.95

So how does it sound?
This is all that really matters and I have to say I’m LOVIN the sound.
I must tell you, these are the types of sounds I use most often, keys, bass, guitar, etc…just standard sounds, but I love them.
I love having them all in one library and the fact that you get everything from classic clean keys, bass, and guitars, down to nasty distorted instruments.
This gives you a lot of variety but they all sound really good in my opinion. The bass is nice and deep, the keys are smooth, and the guitars sound crisp and clean…unless of course they are the distorted version!
Even the drum sets sound nice and live, with a hint of grit and warmth that definitely adds a nice dimension to any production.
I literally wouldn’t have a problem making many full productions with this library, it really delivers that vibe it sets out to create.
If you’re like me and you love warm, organic sounds with usable character, this joint definitely has the goods.
So what’s the bottom line?
Well, this became an instant favorite of mine…again, it’s right up my alley in terms of the types of sounds I tend to gravitate too.
Sure I dig a good synth and such, but most of the time when I sit down to create, I’m using bread and butter classic sounds like ep, bass, guitar, strings, horns, etc.
I give Vintage Vibe 5 out of 5 subs without a doubt, this thing just sounds great, the interface is super easy to tweak…oh…and did I mention it sounds great?!
I highly suggest you listen to the demos, and though I can’t speak directly on the Refill version I’m sure it sounds just as good as this one!
Let me know what you think about this library, I can tell you this joint will be getting plenty of use from me personally…I’m lovin it!
