NOW with all 200 Patches available in UNIFY format! Special pricing of $30 for the library for Kontakt 5.8 or later and includes the Unify presets! Introductory pricing lasts until March 7th at Midnight.
200 Patches with the awesome custom & super flexible interface (a separate version of this library exists for Omnisphere 2.1 HERE.) This is a special library of totally new SAMPLES & Patches for Omnisphere featuring Bell & ethnic Wind instrument presented with both Dry and MegaMagic processed! A very special library that sounds like nothing else on the market! PLUS a bunch of amazing woodwind PERFORMANCES by LA Session ace Steve Tavaglione are included with this library as well to round out the simple samples with some beautiful live performances.
NOTE: Requires the FULL VERSION of Kontakt 5.7 or later. If you own the Free Kontakt Player and have purchased ANY library for the Kontakt Player, you are eligible for an affordable cross-grade to the full version of Kontakt. There are SO MANY amazing FREE libraries for the full version of Kontakt (Visit Pianobook for just one place with literally hundreds of free Kontakt instruments that only work with the full version) we highly recommend upgrading – you’ll get far more for your money than the overpriced libraries for the Kontakt Player.
Listen to the audio demos, watch the patch walkthru video (and other support videos) and you will be impressed with what YOU can do after adding this amazing library to your arsenal!
After the great success of MegaMagic Dreams and MegaMagic Pads, I wanted to think a little bigger and make sure the library was more flexible. I really loved how the guitars turned out in MegaMagic Dreams, so I produced a sampling session with a dear friend and excellent guitar player named Erick Hailstone (you will know more about Erick after the NEXT library comes out). We did 4 hours of him playing single boring notes with a BUNCH of different guitars – I wanted more variety and more notes so I could use Multi-Mode to make them a little more realistic sounding. At the end of the session, I pulled out my box of bell and wind instruments that I had built up to record (see the photo below) and for about 15 min, I picked up and played each of my handbells, finger cymbals, 3-bar Bells, Flutes, Pan Flutes and even my EchoHarp harmonica that I’ve owned since I was probably 8 years old! That 15 min of recording time turned out to be AMAZING. I was shocked how nicely everything played – even the flutes (which I am not an expert at playing!)
Over 25 acoustic bells and wind instruments performed by John Lehmkuhl available in:
- MegaMagic – Processed with LUSH multi-effect reverb and other effect processing chains I designed for this library and recorded into the sample.
- Dry – The source that was fed into the DSP effect chain.
- LOOPED – Almost everything is looped and the Looped patch is set with a slow attack for awesome PAD sounds!
This makes up 150 patches of the library.
This library contains 45 Additional patches I created using the unique Kontakt 5 interface. With patch names like “A Calliope in a Carousel”, “Rhythm of the Heat Pan Flute” and “Waterfalls”, you can see that these bonus patches add something different (and awesome) to this amazing library!
AND THEN – Just as I was about to release the library, I was offered samples by L.A. based session woodwind GURU – Steve Tavaglione – who has performed on so many films (using my sounds I might add) including Finding Dory, Bridge of Spies, Underworld: Awakening, Supernatural, Wall-E and so many more!
So there are 14 AMAZING sound sources from Steve including Flute Harmonics, Flute Taps, Bass Bansuri, Waterphone + Flute and more. These are 5 – 12 second long PERFORMANCES in many cases and give this library some really special sounds that have been used in some of the TV shows and movies that Steve has worked on! These performance were also run thru the MegaMagic process so double the number of patches!
This is MegaMagic: Bells/Winds!
195 Patches wrapped in the same cool Kontakt 5 interface used for MegaMacho Drums and MegaMagic Dreams!
45 Bonus Patches by John Lehmkuhl

This is probably the 10th lib I’ve bought from Skippy, so I’ve run out of positive review material. But anyone visiting this page who uses Kontakt 5+ should watch the Kontakt video above. In this video, most of the second half is Skippy summarizing the dozens of amazing, powerful things you can do with Kontakt and some choice samples (like the VERY choice samples in this bell library). Watch the video. Even if you’re familiar with Kontakt, you’ll probably notice some hidden power-tools that you forgot Kontakt has hidden under the wrench button.
The MM B&W sound set provides a well-recorded and eclectic range of sounds. The imaginative selection lends an exotic touch to my library, plus the MM ambience adds depth and width to my mixes. I’m still exploring the wide array of instruments, but the Baby Bell inspired a new piece very quickly. This library is very useful for me.
