Yo what’s good fam? Got another Kontakt library I’m checking out today.
This one is from Best Service and it’s called Nitron
It’s a sample based synth library for Kontakt 5
Let’s get in and see what’s good!
So what is Nitron?
It is a sample based library of over 1000 patches made up of multisamples from over 50 well-known and obscure synthesizers
The aim of the library is raw leads and basses but there’s much more than that.
It’s also not just about playing back the static samples, the custom Kontakt interface gives you control over the sound so you can tweak and sculpt it into whatever you wish.
If you own the full version of Kontakt and wish to dig in under the hood and go to work, you’re more than welcome to do that.
The style of the sounds are aimed at dubstep, electro, techno, hip hop, pop, trance, and ambient.
- content: 3.08gb (1040 patches)
- format: Kontakt 4.1 or higher, Kontakt Player 5
- price: $179
How does it sound?
If I had to pick one word for this library, that word would be raw!
The library has a really raw, edgy sound to it, definitely captures the analog character of the synthesizers and devices that were sampled.
The interface really allows you to tweak the sounds rather quickly, but I think out of the box they are really ready to go.
You can get some really piercing leads and deep, nasty basses, without having to worry about how it will hit your cpu.
You can mess with the detune/unison, or have the pitch of the instruments alter over a defined period of time.
Some really huge sounds to be had in this library in addition to some nice bellish tones and smooth pads as well.
So what’s the bottom line?
I like a library with character, and when it comes to synth libraries for Kontakt I love the interface to provide enough control to tweak the instrument properly.
I give this library 4 out of 5 subs, it’s a really useful library. Not only does Nitron have a really sexy interface, but the sounds that can be had in this thing are just plain good….period.
There’s enough here to keep anyone busy pulling up and tweaking sounds. Again, the fact that you can get some pretty raw, rather huge sounds without taking a hit on your processor is a big plus in my book.
Efficient instruments are always a plus, fast loading, cpu friendly, without compromising on the actual sound….sounds like a winner to me.
If you’re looking for a huge dose of new synth sounds and you don’t want to worry about if your cpu can handle it, I highly suggest taking a look at this library
