What this is

A non-standard KONTAKT-library that takes on a different approach to Clavinets.  

The library offers a wide variety of samples, ranging from haunting drones to shimmering wildflies.

Many of the patches include an anarchy of sound-variations, allowing you to mix and match more expressive and dynamic performances.

The instrument sampled is like a massive guitar with 60 long guitar-strings. Which inherent many of the possibilities of an electric guitar.  Just that a keyboard with tapping mechanism usually stands in the way for more control over the strings.

Strings were set in motion with the use of external objects. Like bow-hairs, ebows, rotating small fan, electrical toothbrush, needles, scrapes, clinkers and feedback.


Made with Hohner Clavinets D6 and E7 as the main instruments. In addition of hardware effects, ebows, many amps to create a layered and rich sound.

Deep and colourful sustained sounds qualities, through different and unusual treatments. Drawing inspirations from bowed guitars sounds and tricks

soundscapes for cinematic scoring


Humbucker pickups on long strings produce a rich sound that is perfect for making rich soundscapes.  Kinda like an “ambient guitar” but with a darker timbre.



Sliders allow you to blend together the different mixes and set the volume levels to your likings. There are up to 5 mixes to choose from, each one intended to provide a different sound and allow flexibility.

 The [FX] button reveals and engages various sound sculpting options. Sculpt the sounds with a XY pad controlling the effect engine housed inside of Kontakt.


 Unparalleled cinematic soundscapes, transitions, and ambient tones.  

Featuring a sound sculptering granular engine that blends purpose-built samples with specialized grain and sample playback modules, effects, and a powerful performance-based XY modulation matrix.

We’ve investigated and utilised the a big selection of Kontakt’s engine and modulation parametres. Choose from a variety of flexible modulation options such as a Glide portamento, Pitch Follower, granular madness, sadistic filters and randomized evolving [FX] textures.

“By far some of the best textures I’ve ever heard. Unique, visceral and inspiring! Might just make it into every single track where there is anything textural going on!”   -L.S
