Have Instruments has announced the release of Cello Textures: Ristretto, a free sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt aimed at all producers looking for dark & cinematic textures.
Superbly delivered by Parisian cellist Jean-Philippe Feiss, these textures and playable patches will give you a unique taste of some of the best modern film scores. Legendary European composers and performers inspired it, but Have Instruments took it to the next step.
Starting from the original recorded material, they heavily processed all sounds through some of the best modular synthesizers and analog effects pedals to create the Electronic and Dystopian blends inspired by the cello.
Cello Textures: Ristretto consists of one .nki file and features 100 samples (.ncw format, 346,4 MB uncompressed size). As for effects, the interface has one main fx knob in the form of a big coffee cup.
This sample library requires the full version of Kontakt 5.6.8+ (the Player edition isn’t supported).
