Icebreak Audio boutique Kontakt instruments available exclusively at Time+Space

Postby TimeSpace » Fri May 14, 2021 1:56 pm

Icebreaker Audio's boutique instruments and effects for Kontakt are now available at Time+Space with an introductory 25% off!

Choose from...

Akebono – an authentic sample-based emulation of the rare Japanese SUIKO SK-10 Akebono Koto 'suitcase' synth

Sanjo Gayageum – a multi-sampled instrument of a traditional 12-string Korean zither.

Toybreaker – sample-based recreations of 3 different 1980's toy keyboards - perfect for retro digital goodness!

The developer behind these tools – Adam Hanley – has also been involved in the creation of many Kontakt libraries for the likes of Heavyocity, Abbey Road, and Gothic Instruments. Of the Icebreaker Audio titles, Adam says...

"The aim of these instruments was to present sounds that aren't easy to find. The focus was to sample the sounds in a clean and pure form, and then present them in a Kontakt instrument that allows you to experience the idiosyncrasies of the originals" says Adam.

"For example in the Toybreaker library the lo-fi digital envelopes were recreated from scratch using Kontakt scripts rather than relying on Kontakt's built-in envelopes; and in the Gayageum and Akebono instruments the default MIDI pitch-bend behaviour had to be overridden to better mimic the originals.

Some extra effects and features have been added in order to enhance these instruments - the goal is to keep these authentic, but also enjoyable to play
."

These are 're-mastered' versions of the original releases that have been updated to make better use of the latest version of the Kontakt 6 engine, including updated effects and improved interfaces.
