Uilleann pipe sound for Nord keyboards ?

Postby ElectroStrat » 14 Feb 2018, 12:17

Hello,
I'm happy that Nord provides a great variety of sounds including the Mellotron & Chamberlin sounds to feed my Electro 5.
However there are no pipe sounds and I'm missing especially the Uilleann (Irish) pipe sound.
I've found a sound bank for the Kontakt DAW but no sound sample that could be used in the Electro.
Any suggestion ?

You can play in Kontakt and sample each note or some intervals (every three notes for instance) and then upload those samples via the Nord Sample Editor.
You'll lose some finesse compared to Kontakt but that's one way to go.

You're right, that's one way to go.

But I guess I was not clear about Kontakt.
I already have Reason (also from Sweden !) as a DAW and I don't want to buy Kontakt just to have this particular sound.

I'm looking for a cheaper / more straightforward alternative.
Maybe there is a CD or .wav sample library somewhere ?

I've found this :
www.bigfishaudio.com/Celtic-Instrument

Any feedback on this library or other similar sound library ?
Thanks.

Sorry, I understood that you had Kontakt.

There is a Kontakt Player that is free, downloadable on the Native-Instrument website. I use it with Ableton Live. I don't know Reason but I suppose it would work as well. So you would not have to Buy Kontakt to play your samples.
And I am even wondering whether this thing can even work in stand-alone mode. To be confirmed.


About the bigfishaudio Library, I can't say much about it. I don't know it.

That's good to know about Kontakt Player.
However, this won't work in this case.
The library requires the "full retail" version of Kontakt.

And there is no trial version.

Thanks anyway.
