Top 10 Free Kontakt Libraries

Sometimes we want to include realistic sounding instruments in our tracks. However, recording a real instrument or buying sample libraries can turn out quite pricey. Luckily there are plenty of free Kontakt libraries from which we chose our top 10.

You will need: Full version of Kontakt [only number 2 works with Kontakt Player]

1. Acoustic Guitar by Pettinhouse Audio

This guitar sounds very realistic thanks to its release and fret noises. Probably my favourite free library.

2. Flutes: Persian Ney & Shakukachi from Kontakt Factory Selection

These two flutes included in Kontakt's free selection of instruments can add lots of oriental flavour to your track. Velocity curve control and beautiful effects included.

Ekali used it in his remix of Jack U's "Mind" - passed it through some distortion and used "a couple manual unison tricks" (found on reddit). Probably used also some tremolo and transposition modulation after that.

9. Sweet Melodic Choir 

Great sounding male basses and female sopranos. Adds a mystical vibe to anything. Tweak your decay knob to shorten the ridiculously long samples.
