  1. Fox Audio took a look at The Duck of Death: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3v-ftfIXxRM
  2. Another 5/5 star review for The Duck of Death! https://www.samplesoundreview.com/2019/09/review-duck-of-death-for-omnisphere-2.html
  3. First review is in. 5 out of 5 stars from Strongmocha: https://www.strongmocha.com/2019/09/24/the-duck-of-death-review-an-omnisphere-2-6-library-that-quacks-by-man-makes-noise/
  4. Today Man Makes Noise releases it's zero ducks giving cinematic sound library: The Duck of Death! https://www.manmakesnoise.com/the-duck-of-death The Duck of Death is an unusual library. It is not what you would expect. The Duck of Death is an exploration into changing an irritating and horrible sound into something beautiful and cinematic. The Ducks have been used raw and they have been transformed with other tools and then made into wonderful sounds with Omnisphere. With a face that only a mother could love and a voice not even that mother could love. The Duck (or actually Ducks) of Death brings you a voice heard all over the internet (you know the viral videos of people pushing a bunch of these down and running for their lives). I present a library that begs the question, what makes an instrument? I’ve gone with the idea that an instrument can really be anything. Let’s meet the Ducks. First we have The Big Duck. The Big Duck is the main vocalist of the library, producing most of the raw sonic material. Capable of doing short and long notes, The Big Duck specializes in monotonous delivery. Beat it enough and you can get some more colors out of it. And actually beating it with a stick produces some monotonous thumps. Then we have The Little Duck. It barks. The Duck of Death contains 200 patches, 50 multis and 165 original soundsources. The patches are divided into 11 categories that are easily identifiable within Omnisphere. Arp + Bpm (51), Distortion (6), Electronic Mayhem (2), Hits And Bits (16), Keyboards (2), Pads + Strings (34), Synth Bass (20), Synth Long (8), Synth Mono (6), Synth Poly (37), Texture Soundscapes (18). The Multis are divided into two categories with 25 multis in each: Cinematic Duckments and World of Ducks. The Duck of Death also contains a bonus library of drums recorded from a cardboard box and processed into electronic drum kits. This is provided in a simple Kontakt instrument as well as .wav files. The Duck of Death requires Spectrasonic's Omnisphere 2.6. The price of The Duck of Death is 39€ (excluding VAT) with an intro price of 25€ (excluding VAT). The intro offer is available until the 24th of November. https://www.manmakesnoise.com/the-duck-of-death Demo I'm offering a freebie of 10 patches for you to test out what The Duck of Death is. Get the patches here.
  5. This has been one of the best of late: https://www.audiodeluxe.com/products/sonnox-oxford-inflator-native
  6. This is actually a development that makes me interested in Reason. Always found the actual song making in it somewhat cumbersome, but to getting those rack instrument working in a different DAW would be very cool.
  7. These have probably been posted many times already, but Boscomac has some excellent free reaktor stuff: http://boscomac.free.fr/
  8. At no point has anyone called you stupid nor have I tried to win anything. Nothing was said in malice. I stated my countering opinion about recognizing a Kontakt library to yours as I felt what you said was out of line (the extortion scheme comment). Then I said why the Kontakt Player is not an option for many developers.
  9. I felt no need to edit my post. Everything was there that I needed to say.
  10. The GUI of Kontakt is one of the most well known and recognizable GUI´s computer music making. Cclarry already explained the features that make up the unchancing part of the kontakt GUI. It's one of those industry standard things. You don't need to own Kontakt to know what it looks like. The Kontakt GUI's are everywhere.
  11. With that screenshot of the GUI the Kontakt is pretty much implied. And making libraries available in the free Kontakt Player means paying some serious cash to Native Instruments so for small manufacturers it's quite not a viable option. But Sharine is great, some of the best shakers around.
