Musyng Kite for Kontakt


Sarcyan has created a huge Soundfont called Musyng Kite. At 200 plus instruments and over 6500 samples, I'm glad for Kontakt's fairly easy conversion features. Thanks Native Instruments!

Just so we are on the same page. These are fun, classic, retro sounds. They are not intended to take the place of the sounds on the K5 Factory library. As you can see the piano is 50 megs, while the Salamander Piano available on this site is nineteen times larger and of course you can hear the difference. If you want massively sampled modern sounds this isn't for you. If you want fun sounds, carefully molded by Sarcyan that will give your audio pallet an interesting slightly quirky feel, you will enjoy. There are lots of odd sounds, sound effects, cool vintage synth sounds and just obscure instruments that might be hard to find.

Here is the entire soundfont in one big file. It is sorted in GM order aka piano, chromatic, organs...
