Custom Fretless Single String Instrument for Native Instrument’s FULL Kontakt 5.8.1.

What do you get when you take a part of scrap board, a rock you stubbed your toe into, a twig your kid handed you to hold, and a spare guitar string you get an ugly little instrument that is virtually unplayable in real life: The Jumalauta.

The Jumalauta is an unusual instrument that is recorded in a way that you perform it to attach some flavoring and a special vibe to a score or drive and emotion in a particular scene.

The Jumalauta is a fretless single string instrument with the sole intention of sounding great as a virtual instrument and sound source for sound design. This instrument has been already been used in my Puro soundset. Here it is presented as an instrument.

The Jumalauta contains three basic articulations (plucked, hammered, and picked), designed pads, percussions, and bonus underlay patches made with sounds from a Moog Sirin and Arturia Microfreak

The basic articulation are recorded chromatically and extended at the low and high ranges. They have 1 velocity layer and have 4 round robins. The percussions have 1-5 velocity layers and 3 round robins. The Perc Fast Hand has 6 velocity layers and 1 round robin for left and right hand. The pads and underlays have 1 velocity layer and no round robins.

The Jumalauta Contents

The Jumalauta contains 18 .NKI patches, 610 uncompressed . WAV samples and takes up 550 mb of hard disk space.

The samples are left in uncompressed WAV format  to provide you with the possibility to load them into your favorite sampler or use them as raw audio files in your DAW.

The Jumalauta requires the FULL VERSION of Kontakt 5. It is proven to work with version 5.8.1 and higher. It will not function in the Free Player version.
