If you’ve got Kontakt, you know just how powerful it is.

And it’s only natural to begin seeking out free libraries you can utilize to make beats, compose, and produce music.

We’ve got great news for you, because there are a ton of free Kontakt libraries out there to help you get started.

Ferrum – Modern Trailer Percussion by Keepforest

Ferrum – Modern Trailer Percussion by Keepforest

Ferrum was produced by Vladislav Martirosov and Arseni Khodzin.

As its name would suggest, it’s a library featuring cinematic percussion with huge hits, punches, anvils, door impacts, cymbals, bells, tiny metals, and metallic foley.

Ferrum comes with a step sequencer, quick stage placement module, multiple playback modes (including doubling and ensemble), kontakt library rack, and dozens of snapshots.

The full edition comes with 23 patches featuring 550 notes and 16 round-robins. The free edition, though, comes with hand-picked trailer percussion samples to help you get a feel for what’s available in the full version. Ferrum is compatible with Kontakt Player and Native Instruments hardware.

Ferrum’s sounds are massive, as one would expect. They are obviously tailored to film and trailers, but it could be a fun library to experiment with in other genres and musical situations as well.

Gombulator by Fine Cut Bodies

Fine Cut Bodies’ Gombulator is a Kontakt instrument based on a rare early 80s synth, the Yamaha PSR-15. All six of its preset sounds and a set of drums were sampled to create to unique Gombulator interface.

The sounds are just as you would kontakt library – gloriously retro. Perfect for synthpop and even chillout, mood, or ambient music.

The samples are of excellent quality overall, which makes this instrument especially fun to mess around with.

Shreddage 3 Stratus FREE by Impact Soundworks

Shreddage 3 Stratus FREE by Impact Soundworks

Shreddage 3 Stratus is just as you would expect – a free electric guitar sample library.

Amazingly, it comes with deep-sampled sustain, palm mute, and choke articulations with three octaves of playing range, up to 24 samples per note, and a variety of performance options.

I’m a guitarist myself, so I can’t imagine not playing guitar on my recordings. That said, the sounds included in Shreddage 3 far surpass anything I’ve heard sampled. You can create a ton of convincing guitar sounds with this baby!

I don’t think it would be too much of an exaggeration to say that this is the best free guitar Kontakt library out there.

The latest version includes pristine 24-bit recordings, SHRED window and offset, expanded UI, POLY INPUT window, multiple fret and string voicing algorithms, new STRUMMING tab for custom rhythm parts, modular rack and mixer with 30+ effects, and TACT 2.0 for articulation mapping.

Unreal that such a thing is available for free (to be fair, there is a full version with more features).

Palette – Primary Colors by Red Room Audio

Palette – Primary Colors by Red Room Audio

Red Kontakt library Audio describes Palette as a “symphonic sketchpad.” Palette – Primary Colors gives you a small taste of what’s available inside the full version. It comes with strings, woodwinds, and brass ensembles recorded using their own proprietary True Ensemble Recording technique.

Primary Colors gives you access to a limited set of articulations and one microphone position, but you still get three dynamic layers and up to seven round robins.

Overall, I think the included sounds are great. Nice and dynamic. Not the best I’ve ever heard, but I’ve also heard much, much worse.

The instruments were sampled in a spacious but dry environment, which makes it easy to blend the sounds with other libraries or even your own tracks.

Red Room Audio will ask for kontakt library donation at checkout. You aren’t obligated to pay, of course, but if you like the software, it’s always a nice gesture!

Sonas Ronroco Virtual Instrument by Samplephonics

Sonas Ronroco Virtual Instrument by Samplephonics

Sonas Ronroco is kind of insane. It includes a collection of 893 Ronroco loops and 3,996 multisamples. It comes with a custom Kontakt GUI, and the samples were all recorded at 80 Hertz Studios in Manchester. The samples were played by world music expert Dominik Johnson.

This library comes with playable picking groves, textures, and one-shot samples with five mic positions and an on-board mixer.

Just in case you didn’t know, a Ronroco is a stringed mandolin like instrument of the Andean regions.

The Stroh Violin by Impact Soundworks

This library includes three custom-mapped articulations (sustain, spiccato, and pizzicato), up to five round robins, and a three-layer rhythmic sequencer/gate. It also features control for grit, dirt, and vinyl.

Amore Grand Piano by Precisionsound

Amore Grand Piano by Precisionsound

Amore Grand Piano is just as it sounds – it’s a free grand piano Kontakt library.

They used a Yamaha grand piano for the samples, and “close miked” it in stereo. This helped keep its footprint down to just 200 MB.

This library features a three-page GUI that gives you control over decay, EQ, IR reverb, delay, and keyboard response.

The result, at least to my ears, is a warm sounding piano with a fast decay. It does sound quite good though and demonstrates enough versatility to handle different uses.

Piano in 162 by Ivy Audio

Piano in 162 by Ivy Audio

The Piano in 162 is a Steinway Model B grand piano sample library. Steinway, of course, is considered the cream of the crop by many.

The library is available in several formats – Kontakt, SFZ, and Korg Kronos.

The included UI allows for mixing, loading, and purging of ambient mics. These controls help you place the sounds into any mix. Piano in 162 was recorded at 96kHz through two Rode NT5 cardioid microphones (a close pair inside the piano and an ambient pair). You also get five dynamic levels, and two round robins.

Simon Dalzell is responsible for the performances heard in this library.

The result is a full-bodied, dynamic piano with warmth and articulation. If you aren’t happy with these sounds, then I don’t know what you would consider “good enough” for you.

Carpenter Trombone by Ivy Audio

Carpenter Trombone by Ivy Audio

The Carpenter Trombone is a detailed tenor trombone library performed in a professional studio, with legato, sustain, and staccato articulations.

The user interface gives you control over dynamics, articulation, convolution reverb, as well as advanced legato tweaking and release sample behavior.

Legato transitions were painstakingly recorded with a full length sustain. Rarely do you find sample libraries with such attention to detail.

University of Arizona Fred Fox School of Music graduate Dylan Carpenter was responsible for making this library possible.

The included sounds are nothing short of stellar.

Included are some breathtaking sounds, perfect for various forms of electronic, instrumental, ambient, and other styles of music.

As its design suggests, all sounds have a rhythmic pulse to them. Not ideal for every situation, but awesome for some.

Orchestral Rise Builder by Hidden Path Audio

Orchestral Rise Builder by Hidden Path Audio

Here’s another free cinematic sample library for Kontakt. The samples were recorded with a full orchestra in a traditional scoring stage environment.

The interface features mapped keyboard sections for long, medium, and short risers with options for full orchestra, strings only (arco and trem), brass only, and woodwinds only.

When you’re looking to create dramatic swells (common in the horror genre), this one ought to come in handy. I can’t see it being practical for general music production purposes, but in specific situations, you should find it useful.

The Total Composure Orchestra by Xtant Audio

The Total Composure Orchestra by Xtant Audio

The Total Composure Orchestra is a full orchestral sample library built entirely on public domain samples.

Most of the included instruments only contain one set of articulation and some are limited to one recorded dynamic layer besides. With the help of some physical modelling techniques, however, Xtant Audio was able to enhance the sounds.

The Total Composure Orchestra’s interface is quite simple, but it does give you some options for tweaking and customization.

Overall, the sounds are quite decent. For obvious reasons, not the most amazing you’ve ever heard, but certainly not the worst you’ve ever heard either. A great composing tool.

As its name would suggest, AURORROR is a great tool for composers, especially those looking to create for horror genres or any media requiring dramatic, eerie music. That said, there are some conventional sounds that could easily be used in other ways, and they sound quite good!

Djemko Drum Ensemble by Supreme Samples

Djemko Drum Ensemble by Supreme Samples

Supreme Samples’ Djemko Drum Ensemble is an experimental library featuring a pitched down djembe, which sounds a bit like a taiko drum.

Creator Jimmy Ferrufino deep sampled his djembe, layered it multiple times and ran it through a variety of sound processors to create this cinematic sounding drum. He says this makes it perfect for trailer music or soundtracks.

The result needs to be heard to be believed. The drum sounds huge and has a bit of that “soldiers marching” kind of vibe to it. I could see myself having some fun with this!

Key Features:

  • Acoustic Guitar 
    The first guitar type is the Ac. Guitar, which is a typical sustain guitar instrument. You can use this instrument to play leads or even manually create strumming rhythms. I like the sound for soft arpeggios with some reverb. 
  • Flageolet
    This instrument plays the flageolet articulation or harmonics. It makes a soft kind of sound that works best for arpeggios or creating soft guitar scapes. Adding a lot of reverb and some chorus to this articulation creates an almost pad-like sound. 
  • Psychedelic FX 
    This instrument features reversed guitar samples that sound excellent for creating pad sounds or underscores. I would utilize this library as a free alternative to the Heavyocity Acoustic Guitars in this article.

Modest Guitar Free, Acoustc Guitar & Flageolets for Kontakt 5 (free download)

Compatibility:

The library requires Kontakt 5+ (NOT the free Kontakt Player). Kontakt is available for Windows 7 or higher and macOS 10.13 or higherboth 64-bit only.

Summary:

If you like experimenting with guitar sounds, then I think you would love this library. However, the lack of essential articulations doesn’t work well for playing rhythms or natural lead melodies. Then again, if you aren’t playing something kontakt library, try combining velocity dynamism and pitch bends to create convincing lead parts.

Note that this library is meant for fingerstyle playing, which means you won’t find a strumming pattern builder or similar features.

And this is where you will find a knob called Offset, which allows you to deemphasize the sound of the plectrum. It is necessary to make a convincing shredding performance. 
  • Articulations

2. DAOWAVES CYBERNEZZ RG 2075 

More Info & Download

Cybernezz RG 2075 is a heavy-hitting overdriven guitar library with deep sound sampling.

Key Features:

  • The Guitars 
    You’ll find an acoustic steel, nylon, Fender bass, Fender Stratocaster, and a Fender Telecaster in this library. Each guitar features sustain and harmonics articulations, except for the Fender bass, which has three articulations: fingered, picked, and harmonics. Most of them sound soft and delicate, so they’re great as background instruments
  • The Moods 
    As the name suggests, each guitar comes with three moods: Clean, Mood 1, and Mood 2. Here, Clean is obviously the raw samples. Mood 1 adds some saturation and slight chorus to make the sound more pleasant, whereas Mood 2 adds even more effects to make the sound wobbly and weird. The harmonic guitars begin sounding almost like Fender Rhodes Mk II with effects at that point. 
  • The Effects 
    You will find a stereo imager, an amp envelope, a convolution reverb, a tape emulator, and an echo on the UI. The reverb and echo feature three kinds of characters each. Finally, there’s a section called Layers, where you can add a pad sound, vinyl noise (dust), and tape noise.

A Beautiful Kontakt Player Guitar Library for $49 - Review: Boutique Mood Guitars by Naroth Audio

Compatibility:

The library requires Kontakt Player or Kontakt (version 6+). Kontakt is available for Windows 7 or higher and macOS 10.13 or higherboth 64-bit only.

Summary:

You’ll find this library useful for various work, from Lo-Fi lounge beats to even film scoring. The sounds are delicate and beautiful, and with effects, they start sounding otherworldly. You can’t really use Mood Guitars for playing lead parts, but they sound perfect for adding ethereal backgrounds to a track.

Conclusion

And there you have our pick of some of the best guitar libraries for Kontakt. Note that some of them require the full version of Kontakt, and those will only work for 15 minutes (demo mode) in the free Kontakt Player.

Our list features almost all kinds of instruments in the guitar family for convenience. The NI Session Acoustic Guitars and Strummed Acoustic 2 have built-in libraries of riffs and rhythms. So, they are ideal for people who aren’t used to writing guitar parts. I’d also recommend them for people who don’t have much time to spend on arrangements.

Similarly, the NI Electric Vintage and Sunburst Deluxe are outstanding electric guitar instruments that can create mix-ready guitar parts in minutes. However, if you’d rather have a lot of control and flexibility, nothing beats Orange Tree Samples Evolution Strawberry. Kontakt library lets you control just about every aspect of playing the guitar.

If you enjoy experimenting, I recommend checking out Heaviocity Scoring Acoustic Guitar and the free Modest Guitars. And I very much enjoy the NI Rickenbacker Bass for dynamic bass parts. However, after being introduced to Xperimenta XBass, I think it’s also a mighty contender that delivers quick and effective results. Select your instrument of choice based on the level of flexibility and sound you want.
