joe_04_04 has released a free NI Kontakt instrument featuring the sounds of a Casio MT-35 toy keyboard.
This might interest you guys who are fascinated with extremely retro sounding toys/instruments. I made my first “Kontakt Instrument.” I’m very new to kontakt, just received Komplete 8 a few days ago. I know how to create multiple velocity/round robin instruments, but there wasn’t a point for this since it wouldn’t have any variation in the notes. I didn’t mess with anything really.
I just imported each sample and that was it. There’s a total of 6 different instruments in this, which all contain the different tones the keyboard has. I didn’t include the little rhythm tracks that you can play to, sorry. The samples aren’t the greatest, since I recorded them years ago with an older interface. I held out each note 3 – 4 seconds so you will be limited there, but like I said, I recorded this years ago and didn’t know I’d be using it for this sort of thing. Let me know how I can improve this or if you want to add to it go for it.
The instrument is available for free download via Gearslutz (42.5MB download size).
