From ambient soundscapes to snarling rhythmical loops, Stone will certainly add flair and character to your underscore. I certainly do recommend both Stone and Glass and I am really looking forward to what Murst Instruments creates next” – Sample Library Review

Oscillate bank

Oscillate // is a collection of deep analogue basses sampled from vintage and modular synthesizers processed through a germanium fuzz

Pivot bank

Pivot // sustained Cello bow, unstructured Cello phrases, granular Cello and Organ fuzz. Recorded close mic for an intimate capture of the bow texture and body resonance

Fluctuate bank

Fluctuate // features hammer, mallets and plucked sounds processed on a Uher tape machine

Grain bank

Grain // completes the sonic layering with a quirky selection of noise/recorded samples for depth in your sound design

By layering the banks together you have a composer toolkit with rich sound sources that is immediate to use. Sculpting the sound with the built in effects processing allows you to add character or create something experimental. Below is a playlist of examples from composer Derek Kirkup

Features

Stone is Kontakt Player library, and will work on any mac or PC, but not iOS/pads. It runs best with an SSD hard drive for faster sample loading times. Stone uses a split keyboard to allow you to layer your sounds or play separate harmony/melody between the banks. Oscillate is laid out on the left hand side of the keyboard and is comprised of an octave and a half, highlighted in Red. Pivot is the central 2 octaves in Green. Fluctuate is the highest or right hand octave in Purple. Grain is mapped across the full range to allow the noise sources to be blended with any or all of the other banks. Native Access offers a very simple serial redeem and install process
