FreeBee – A free Kontakt instrument (3d flying insect simulation)

X-Y Control

Since I have been working on a set of Kontakt instruments for Audiomotif I became more and more interrested in Kontakt as a sound design tool. While mainly engineered towards the chromatic instrument simulations - Kontakts built in effects and scripting language allows you to create very effective sound design tools. Besides sound design tools designed for post production there is also a new line of synth's and drum instruments coming out next month. (Audiomotif - Electro Tech Vol 01)

What else but a bee would be our simulation? A freebie bee - Right enough with the wordplay. The instrument is using a HP filter to mimic the size of the insect (more bass equals a bee - medium a wasp and only high's for a fly). There is panning control and  X-Y shifts;  going from wide to narrow relative of it's center. There is an EQ section you can use to enhence some frequencies when using a more extreme pitched keys (C1>C2 - C5>C6). The sample used is a synthesized sound and is being looped.

    Hai Durk, dat is een leuke creatie die je in Kontakt hebt gemaakt! Dank bovendien voor het delen.
    Ik ga eens kijken of ik er ook een overtuigende mug mee kan maken. :-)

    hartelijke groet,
