Cory makes some great videos exploring different virtual instruments from a variety of developers. His relaxed style is really easy to watch, and he has some great insights into the libraries.Read More
His latest SC videos are: a percussion showcase featuring Pan Drums, Vibraphone, Grand Marimba, and a Moonkits overview. It’s well worth subscribing to his Youtube channel if you haven’t yet.

Kontakt 6.2 finally allows the user to drag samples onto the front panel of an instrument, and have them auto-map and integrate into it.Read More
This is something we’ve been waiting for a while, and we have lots of ideas for it.
First up, is a simple drag and drop update for Haunted Spaces:
- 4 User wave Slots – accessible via the browser window
- Multi-sample support: pitch detect + auto-map.
- Presets can be saved and recalled
Version 1.2 is a free update for all Haunted Spaces users. To update, login to Native Access.

We’ve had lots of requests to remap Moonkits, for use with e-drums and other trigger systems.
We weren’t able to include a remapping system in the instrument because of the differing articulations across instrument groups, but there is an easy way to fix this using Multi-scripts…Read More
- Kontakt includes a handy multi-script for exactly this purpose, and it’s not scary. Go to the top bit of Kontakt, where it says ‘Multi-rack : New (Default)’, and click the ‘KSP’ button to the right.
2. You’ll see a grey panel appear. A bit scary, but you’re going to power through this. At the left edge of the panel you’ll see some buttons, click on the ‘Preset’ button, and Go to Factory > Transform > Change Keys
3. You’ll see the script panel appear. Here you can simply change which incoming key triggers which Kontakt note. simple, right?
4. You can now save this Multi you’ve created as a multi preset: File Menu >Save Multi As, and recall it whenever you need.

A happy new year to all our users. I’d like to tell you about what we have planned this year at Soniccouture..Read More
The first new release of 2018 will be: Sheng Sho Khaen, featuring three different Asian mouth-organ type wind instruments.
Following that will be a major update to The Attic adding 8 new instruments sampled from rare vintage pieces, including: Minitmoog, Crumar DP-80, Logan Vocalist, Siel Orchestra 2, Apr Omni 2, Cheetah MS-800.
We have a new drum product, Moonkits – a collection of brushed drums with quirky and unusual setups. This will probably see the light of day in the summer.
Also in production is an atmospheric recording of a large church organ, recorded in the famous ambience of All Saints church in Tooting, London. This was a preferred recording venue for Sony Classical for many years in the 1980s and 90s.
