Unique and extensive collection of percussion sounds

With Sticks, Vir2 expands their Vital Series with a unique and extensive collection of percussion sounds for the Kontakt Player. This time the focus is on sticks, which have been used to play on a wide variety of surfaces, some of which are extremely unusual. All samples were recorded dry and in stereo to ensure maximum flexibility in the mix. Due to the structure (all instruments in one patch) the library is perfect for creative layering and modulating the sound.

Features at a glance:

  • 23 different stick types
  • 20 sound surfaces
  • 80 unique sounds
  • Dry, stereo samples with up to 4 velocity layers and 13 round robins
  • All instruments in one patch for easy and creative layering
  • Complete control & machine integration
  • Over 2GB of uncompressed content

  • Four Engines, One Patch - A powerful GUI offers four playback “engines” allowing you to edit, play, and blend up to four unique patterns and sounds from just one Kontakt patch. Each engine allows you to select the sound you want to use and either perform your rhythm part manually or use the built-in sequencer.

  • Powerful Sequencer - Each sequencer allows you to control not only the velocity, but also the pitch and pan of each step for completely unique performances of these instruments.

  • Add Effects - Craft your sound with the seven built-in effects: Equalizer, Flanger, Phaser, Transient Master, Compressor, Delay, and Reverb.

Vital Series: Sticks has been designed for seamless integration with the KOMPLETE KONTROL S-Series and Maschine, offering you a unique hands-on experience. Manipulate Sticks' interface using the controls of all NKS compatible hardware.
