Full Kontakt 6.7.1 or higher | 6 NKIs | 3 Organic Patches | 3 Processed Soundscapes

 

Attention: this sample library requires FULL KONTAKT 6.7.1 or higher, with the free Kontakt Player the instruments will only run in demo mode.

  

The EPS Hurdy-Gurdy library is a creative collaboration between Jan Pfitzer and Edu Prado, resulting in a fun virtual instrument built from beautiful raw Hurdy-Gurdy recordings.

 

 

 

 

 

The Hurdy-Gurdy sample library offers multiple built-in effects to shape the sounds as you wish, and it comes with 6 unique NKIs: 

  1. Organic Crank
  2. Pizzicato
  3. Hollow
  4. Grains
  5. Choir
  6. SFX

 

The built-in effects include: Space – Convolution Reverb with 10 options of impulse-responses; Crank knob; Attack and Release controls; Smear diffusion effect; Drive effect; High-Pass and Low-Pass filters.

 

 

The 3 organic patches (Organic Crank, Pizzicato and SFX) bring the beautiful raw sound of the Hurdy-Gurdy, with a rustic touch full of character. The Organic Crank gives you the possibility to play the strings softly or build up the intensity with a harsher sound, bringing more overtones, by using the “Crank” knob, that is also assigned to the MIDI CC21.

 

From experimenting with the Hurdy-Gurdy, we came up with the 2 other organic patches. The pizzicato patch has 3 velocity layers with a natural pizzicato articulation, and the SFX include all sorts of fun sounds, from the instrument’s mechanics, to percussive sounds, squeaks and scratchy glissandos that are perfect for sound design.

 

The Hollow, Grains and Choir patches are created from the organic Hurdy-Gurdy samples using a variety of audio processing and manipulation, expanding the sonic possibilities of the instrument, great for layering and creating unique soundscapes.

 

Such an unexpected approach to this instrument makes the EPS Hurdy-Gurdy a fun library to play with, bringing unusual sounds to inspire creativity.
