Product Overview

This library contains lush and warm pads and textures. It is small in size but big in sound. The Update has now more Patches and almost fifty Pad Samples. The new Samples are more textural and glitchy, but there are also some harmonic pads.

As with all kontakt libraries please make sure you have the correct version of kontakt. In this case you must have the full version of kontakt v5.5.2 or above. 

Have fun with this update!

If you're unsure whether this is right for you, here's a short example of what's included in Mountains


  • String patch: as it suggests features strings. You got control over reverb. Sordino and a virtual panning.
  • Pad Patch: contains 47 different Pad sounds from warm and gentle up to distorted and dissonant. You have a phaser and a reverb as well.
  • Filter Pad Patch: Similar to the regular Pad patch, but instead of a phaser you got a filter and the cutoff is controlled by a lfo.
  • Air Pad Patch: Another Pad Patch. Here it is possible to load different "Spaces" to shape the pad samples, what is in fact a convolution reverb.
  • Plucks Patch: You can create short sounding plucks, that doesnt mean, you cant make longer sounding leads. This is possible through ADSR Envelope changes.
  • Texture Patch: Here you got the possibility to create own glitchy rhythms by changing the speed of the lfos and in addition you can add a reverb to it.

The pads and the texture patches have mapped a lowpass filter to CC1. All in all is this instrument a cool addition to your palette of sounds. 140 mb size in 96khz,24bit after lossless ncw compression from 234mb of rough Data.

Ps: Audio Demos are dry Demos featuring only sounds from this library. :)

Customer Review

"Just wanted to say how much I enjoy using this little gem and how much I'm looking forward to the upcoming update..can't wait to see what you've added.

Also, my thanks for bring us this in the first place..really appreciate the time and effort you've put into this project. I own various synths and VSTis, but this is one of those I find myself always returning to when a piece calls for strings in particular..they really do sound that good."

Great options for creating individual soundscapes

There is already a great review form Stan about resona but I would like to recommend this one as a perfect addition. The general concept is the same: - special "soundenvironments" here presented as nki-presets combined with - soundsets inside the nki soundenvironment too choose from Evry "soundenvironment" has just a special combination from effects so that it is really easy too build your sounds. My absolute favourites: the "evolve" options in the "airy pads" which are under something called "space". Dont really know what this is exactly about but it just sounds great and really brings totally different sounds in the same environment and with same soundsets. And in combination from nki with included sounds you have more then 200 sounds at starting point. Only two little wishes: sad that string patch has only one soundset would love some choices here (for example something deep like cello/low strings, smaller/bigger string ensembles....) and second: maybe possible to get some more concrete naming to the bonus patches (warm/cold etc. like the "regular" ones would be enough as just a hint).

very useful!

as a starting point for further sound design or as a stand alone underscore instrument,mountains just delivers. top notch sound quality and lots of possibilities to personalize the sound. you really get a bang for your bug with this!

All you'd expect

Specialising in those slow attack, floating, majestic textures that are great for positive or pensive soundtracks. There's a lot of similar stuff around, but this is now one of my favorites. Great presets that you can even use alone to make a complete track.

This is very light weight library but very warm and lylical sound. Also cost effective! I like this.

Amazing sounds, especially the strings!

I don't love the font. There I said it. And that is LITERALLY the only complaint I have. A huge collection of really cool sounds that transport you somewhere. Instant soundtrack stuff. Highly recommended if that's what you're looking for!

An enthralling collection of pads and ambient textures. And the price makes it a no brainer.

Brilliant, evocative, atmospheric sound .. Delivers much more than the asking price!

A truly beautiful sonic experience that will get you inspired to compose spacious resonant relevations that evoke mountains yet equally capable of capturing the delicacy of the thin air and mists of the high country, .. transports you. Highly recommended. And, at the asking price, is absolutely a win-win. Thank you Sound Aesthetics Sampling :)

I 100% agree with all the positive reviews already given by everyone so i can only say that "Mountains" is a no brainer if you like soft pads, plucks, textures and even strings for your ambient/cinematic tracks. And the price tag is extremely generous. It´s almost a gift to be honest. There´s quite alot of patches and even tho some of them are a bit similar, that doesn´t hurt your creativity in any way; actually it ends up helping because the subtle changes in those patches allow you to quickly add more variation to your tracks without changing much from the original idea, resulting in focused and not stagnant or boring tracks. Basically what i mean to say is that sometimes, less is more. Don´t let those words scary you, there are plenty of patches to choose from, it´s just that sometimes libraries are not focused like "Mountains". It serves his purpose without losing it´s identity and you can see that throughout the whole library. With the version 2 of both Resona and Mountains coming out this month i cannot wait to try them and get inspired both from the new sounds that are being added but from the new UI who´s quality is way better than pretty much 95% of libraries out there. If you are someone like me, who thought Mountains looked a little bit outdated( i liked Resona´s UI but the new one is amazing) then you will be extremely happy to see the V2 one. To finalize, not only Sounds Aesthetics Sampling libraries are awesome but they think as a costumer and not only as a developer which leaves me no doubt that in the long run, that, along with their professionalism and simpathy will obtain them alot of loyal costumers like me. Hopefully we are able to change the rating of the reviews we give, because i might want to change this to 5 stars once i play with the V2 of both Resona and Mountains.
