Just in time for my upcoming post about various top-quality FREE sound libraries comes Native Instruments KORE Holiday Selection 2009, a totally free and sonically stunning sound library for those who have either Kore 1, Kore 2, or the new free KORE Player. This new sound set has 45 Kore Sounds® with 360 Sound Variations, drawn from 12 different KORE and KONTAKT instruments.
The KORE Player is one of the many free sound libraries that I will be covering in a single, exhaustive post very soon. I have been getting all the details and downloads in place for quite a while now (some are no longer available from the original sites). The information will undoubtedly be worth the wait and should be an excellent resource for newbies and old-timers alike for a long time to come. After all, who would want to pass up multiple gigabytes of top-shelf sounds, all waiting to find a home in your studio!
For now, however, jump on this free Native Instruments offering while it is still around! I get the feeling it could go away after Christmas (or the first of the year at the latest) due to the title being the KORE Holiday Selection 2009! If you don't already own the free KORE Player, head on over to the Native Instruments website and grab it now! Registration is required and they do send you emails occasionally (opt-out is easy), but I never would have known about this release if it weren't for their email updates, so I actually appreciate receiving them.
For use with the free KORE PLAYER:
No previous product ownership is required to use this instrument – simply download both the free KORE PLAYER and HOLIDAY SELECTION 2009 for free, and get started!
(Note: The free KORE PLAYER is needed to play these sounds)
