Swell is a performable Kontakt instrument and sound effects library designed to create natural sounding cymbal swells with a variety of different cymbals and strengths.

We brought in a professional drummer to perform each of the swells and on recording day we covered a wide variety of cymbal shapes and sizes.
Swell is divided into 2 parts: natural and designed.
The natural collection has recordings that are unmodified from their original performances and was created to produce clean, musical, natural sounding performances.
The designed collection uses samples based on the natural recordings that have been transformed into entirely new and different sounds using heavy processing and layering. It was created to produce interesting design and transition sounds quickly and easily.
In addition to the carefully recorded sounds we have created a truly useful and flexible kontakt instrument. This instrument ties the mod wheel to an entire matrix of effect parameters that you can manipulate in real time for instant complexity.
