The Crystal Glasses Volume 2 library for NI Kontakt was given their highest rating of 5 stars in a review by Martin Walker for Sound On Sound magazine in the UK. Now we are up to Version 3 - even more bells and whistles! Buy this set and get the original BOB Crystal Glasses and Meditation Bowls at 1/2 off! The 1/2 off will be discounted on the checkout page - be sure to add BOTH libraries to your shopping cart.
The Crystal Glasses is a project I began in 2007. I worked on it sporadically over 3 years. Bolder Sounds already has a very popular sound set entitled Crystal Glasses and Meditation Bowls. So - why create another? The crystals recorded in that library date back to the mid 1990’s when 16 bit mono samples was the standard format ( the Meditation Bowls were sampled at a later date in stereo ). Also - the idea of recording these crystal glasses as a group of glasses opened up the door to different sound design opportunities. This newer Crystal library features 24-bit stereo samples, round-robin sampling, numerous articulations and Kontakt scripting galore.
