Free Kontakt Instrument – Karoryfer Cello
Karoryfer Lecolds and Bigcat Instruments released a free Kontakt instrument based on a simple cello sample library, which is intended to be flexible and easy to use. The cello was recorded close-miked, without vibrato, and the samples are completely unprocessed.
According to the creators, the cello samples are especially suited for pop, rock or EDM tracks, or to blend in with other string sample libraries.
