This library is pretty much exactly what it sounds like it should be all about: A pack of rowdy elven folk singing as an ensemble, with sustains, short staccatos and long staccatos/semi-marcatos in multiple dynamics over a fairly wide range. Also included are meaty shout/yelp impacts created through a little excessive hammer on elf groin violence.We recorded this little beast with the help of a little spiced seasonal ale and a whole lot of helium. It’s perfect for holiday, comedy and parody music and those who are searching for fresh and weird source material for sound design and experimentation.
Originally published in 2009 as part of the Tonehammer Gnomehammer v1 collection by Tonehammer, vast amounts of helium were inhaled by our performers in order to record this library. What this means is we go so far as to ingest foreign substances into our bodies in order to provide a unique, powerful musical experience.
This library is designed for the full retail version of Native Instruments Kontakt 3.5 or later. Kontakt is an industry-standard advanced virtual instrument / software sampler platform. Learn more about Kontakt.
Check out screenshots of our custom graphical user interface for Kontakt in the image gallery above. They provide a wide range of sound shaping parameter controls, each one totally automation-ready in your host environment or Kontakt’s stand-alone mode.
This is a standard Kontakt open-format library, so the free Kontakt Player doesn’t support this open-format Kontakt library. However, the sample directories are fully accessible to allow user customization, import and mapping into other wav-compatible software, sampler and synth formats.
The special Libraries tab doesn’t support this open-format Kontakt library, but you can use the standard File browser tab, or import this library into the Kontakt database and Quickload tools for easy navigation, loading and organization.
