Terracotta is a multisampled flowerpot instrument and organic sound design tool for Kontakt 5. Quite surprisingly, terracotta flowerpots actually have a very pleasing bell-like sound. The library includes 7 layers of sound to mix, an arpeggiator and an effects page.
It's sampled with 4 velocity layers and 4 round robin. Terracotta is also an excellent sound design tool, capable of anything from smooth ambiances to melodic percussion.
Terracotta is a sample library consisting of 25 multisampled pots each one unique in size, shape and age. Some are old handmade Victorian pots and others are smooth and newer. Each flowerpot was hit with a soft wooden edge multiple times and at different velocities. These stereo recordings are then handpicked and arranged so that for each terracotta pot there are 4 velocity layers with 4 round robins per layer.
A lot of attention was paid to capturing the beauty of each sound. The library works great as a rhythmic tool, it comes with a built in arpeggiator, allowing you to program in the velocities and the order which the notes are played. The library also features a selection of other sounds, such as plucked strings and resonating china bowls. Mixing these layers together you can create rich, melodic and organic tones.
The library has recently been updated to version 2.0 which greatly improves performance, adds new controls and features the FrozenPlain Effects Engine.
This library comes with the powerful FrozenPlain Effects Engine. It features 13 effects built into an easy to use interface. These have the power to drastically change the sound and are useful for sound design. Each effect has 5 presets and a selection of controls. In total there are: LP & HP filters, 2 band EQ, Atomise, Strum, Scatter, Sequencer/LFO, Arpeggiator, Distortion, Chorus, Phaser, Rotator, Tempo Synced Delay, Reverb.

Need Plucks from the Terracotta flowerpots army?
Than go for this library. Nice sounding bell-like plucky sounds. The library delivers also interesting pad sounds. As usual from FrozenPlain only high quality sounds in here!
Beautiful and unique sounding
You can even layer the amazing terracotta sound with other samples like a celesta or a music box, it has an individual envelope for each instrument layer, some interesting convolution reverbs, and a whole FX chain with even a sort of granulizer (its called atomizer i think) with which you can get really interesting results.
You won't get this sound anywhere else.
