Tutti Free Kontakt Interface

Sonokinetic release Tutti Free – orchestral phrases for Kontakt Player

It appears that ProjectSAM’s Tutti Crescendo is not the only “Tutti” library to hit the free plugin market. There’s a new and more recent library, this time from a different developer, and its name is “Tutti Free”.

Sonokinetic Tutti Free is a phrase-based orchestral sample library that features a full symphony orchestra. The sounds consist of pre-recorded orchestral runs, rips, stabs, risers, clusters and a variety of different textures.

The title of the library may seem familiar to some. That’s because Sonokinetic Tutti Free is based on a commercial library by the same name, released a little over a decade ago.

A Kontakt Player compatible, Tutti Free comes as a 500MB VST plugin & standalone application, and is available for Native Instruments free sampler. As described on the Sonokinetic website, the sound is a mixed signal of 4 microphone positions – which, unfortunately, one is not able to control independently. The sounds available were recorded at the Cinematic Concert Hall in Zlín, Czech Republic.

A rather quality collection of sounds, Tutti Free comes as a decently organized unit, with four different sample sections that represent each phrase category. These sections are divided into Hits & Stabs, Textures, Crescendi and Glissandi.

Each phrase or audio sample that you play automatically triggers a full visual notation (sheet music) of the relevant orchestral instrumentation, so you know exactly which orchestral setup was used to create a certain sound or musical sequence, and how exactly the instruments were played in the orchestra.

You may find that some of the phrases are “random” while others are more structured and tempo oriented. The random, improvised ones do not have an accompanying visual notation to them.

This library is part of the company’s free Legacy collection, and it joins the previously released Vivace Legacy (orchestral textures), EMP e-piano (Rhodes), Sleigh Bells, Hurdy Gurdy and the Carousel fairground organ.

Tutti Free by Sonokinetic supports Native Instruments Kontakt Player 7 and is also compatible with Komplete Kontrol, as well as the NKS format. A serial number must be obtained through the developers’ website. Download is done via Native Access, upon activation.
