wind controller sounds for Kontakt breath controller patches soundbanks native instruments from Patchman MusicWindPak Sample Libraries for Native Instruments Kontakt 4 or higher

Online MP3 Demos Available! (See Below)

Patchman Music is proud to announce new wind controller / breath controller WindPak™ soundbanks for Native Instruments Kontakt 4 and higher.

The long wait is now over. After more than 3 years of development, Patchman Music has released a brand new series of wind controller / breath controller sample libraries specifically programmed for use with Native Instruments Kontakt 4.0 and higher. These new Patchman Music WindPak™ Series soundbanks are specifically designed and expertly programmed by professional wind controller player / master wind controller sound designer Matt Traum to be controlled with a wind controller such as the Akai EWI5000, EWI USB, EWI4000s, EVI, MIDI EVI, Yamaha WX5, WX7, WX11, WindJamm'r, MDT, or Softwind Synthophone. These highly expressive sounds are also fantastic for keyboardists when used with a Yamaha BC1, BC2, or BC3a breath controller plugged into a keyboard equipped with a breath controller input, or plugged into a device such as the MIDI Solutions Breath Controller Box or the Anatek Wind Machine (out of production). NOTE: These sounds do NOT load inside a wind controller. They are loaded into Kontakt on your computer.

Every sound in every Patchman Music WindPak™ has been fully optimized for use with a wind controller and breath controller. No further editing is needed. Just load up a sound from the WindPak™ into Kontakt 4.0 or higher (not included) and start playing your wind controller or breath controller with the wonderful expression you have come to expect from Patchman Music- the world leader in wind controller sound design. Our clients include the best in the business- Michael Brecker, Bob Mintzer (Yellowjackets), Tom Scott, Jeff Kashiwa (Rippingtons), Bobby Read (Bruce Hornsby), Everette Harp, Mike Phillips (Stevie Wonder), etc...

Each Patchman Music WindPak™ contains at least 5 distinctly different sounds- including new multi-sampled keymaps- optimized for full breath expression. These are completely new sample maps with corresponding fully programmed patch parameters tweaked to respond correctly to your breath! Unlike other sample libraries, our WindPaks™ are NOT locked so you can dive in and make any adjustments you wish quickly and easily.

If you thought high quality breath response was not possible in a sample-based soft synth- think again! These are the finest sample based wind controller sound libraries on the planet. You will be stunned at the beautiful smooth breath response and superb legato you will achieve with these sounds. The response and realism we have attained in this sampler sound library is our best ever. They said it couldn't be done and they were wrong. These sounds are not simple triggered phrases- these sounds are each designed to be PERFORMED and CONTROLLED in realtime just like real instruments with a wind controller or breath controller.

> > > IMPORTANT REQUIREMENTS!!! All you need to use these sounds is the FULL VERSION of Native Instruments Kontakt 4.0 or higher installed on your PC/MAC. These sounds will NOT work with Kontakt Player and Kontakt Player is NOT included with these soundbanks. These sounds do NOT work with older versions of Kontakt. We currently do not sell the Kontakt 4 app. Contact Native Instruments for a dealer near you. Email Matt at Patchman Music or call him at 440-740-1288 before ordering if you have any questions about using these soundbanks.

 Please Note: These soundbanks have been specially designed for use with a wind controller or breath controller and thus require one of these devices for proper use. These sounds require breath controller data (Midi continuous controller #2) in order to make any sound. If you do not have a wind controller or breath controller you will probably not be able to use these sounds.

wind controller sounds for Kontakt breath controller patches soundbanks native instruments from Patchman Music User Comments...

Judd Miller Patchman Music"Hey Matt, These Kontakt patches are very nice sounds and a fine addition to your repertoire of wind controller patches that you've created over the years. I'm sure that there will be more good things to follow. Thanks, Judd" - Judd Miller, Top EVI session musician on numerous major movies and studio recordings

"Hi Matt: I just wanted to drop you a line and say how awesome the Kontakt sound banks are that I just bought. I used the English Horn, Clarinet and Bass Clarinet in an orchestral piece today, and they sound terrific! I'm also looking forward to using the harmonica, it sounds great. I would love some others. Please make more! Thanks." - Al Jewer / Perfect Choice Music Library

"Hello Matt! The only thing I can say about this WindPak is WOW! Talk about plug and play! I launched K4 and dropped your instruments in it... Instant gratification!... Expression, swells, everything is just awesome... and like I like it: OUT OF THE BOX... no fiddling... no tweaking... Like 'OutBack Steakhouse says: Just Right!'... Played the English Horn at my church gig on Sunday, the band was blown away and I could see the congregation moved by the sound my WX5 was generating! You got a winner!!!! Keep them coming!!!! Extremely pleased in Florida!"

"Hey Matt, I'm having so much fun with the wind patches for the WX5. The Kontakt patches are really sweet. The best is the vibrato on the Kontakt patches which I set to activate when tightening the WX5 reed. I used to play woodwinds 20 years ago and I could never get that nice a sound. :-) Excellent work, thanks again!"

"Hi Matt, I tested WindPak 1+3 with my WX5. These patches are perfect and Fantastic! Thanks again! Best regards."

"Matt's Kontakt patches are fantastic. You can't go wrong with them. They set the standard for all my softsynth patches. They sound great and are very responsive."

"I have all 3 Matt's Windpaks and love them. The Windpak clarinet is the most responsive clarinet one I own. All the Windpak instruments are very responsive. There isn't a 'bad' instrument in the Windpak series."

"Cheers indeed. Wow that was quick. Damn impressive sounds. I am just getting into the EWI USB - I am really a keyboard / guitar player - but recall playing the recorder many decades ago! How on earth do you pack this quality into such a small file size? OK I note its simple files and no grand script, but it does what you describe. So expressive indeed. Well done... proves that less is more!"

"This is some STUNNING programming work. And what's more amazing is that this level of expression has been achieved without resorting to massive giga-sized files. How in the world did you do it?! I struggled for years trying to get Kontakt to respond the right way to my wind controller and never could get it right. Matt and the gang at Patchman Music have hit another grand slam out of the park. Congratulations! I look forward to all of your future releases!"

"Hi Matt, Cool job, on these new samples. And so small! Congratulations on your new WindPaks!"
