I've converted most of the MSLP instruments to Kontakt 5. I think it was about 5 years ago that Erick Kvist released this instrument collection. It is an impressive feat to create something like 15,000 samples. I thank him and the musicians who helped him for making these samples available to us. There are a number of beautifully sampled instruments here, such as the flute, the trombone and the cello and even those more lightly sampled are still fun sounds than can make a nice addition to your instrument library. Also for the kid in you, ten sampled toys.
Erick is back with a new website. It has the samples along with NN-XT patches for you Reason folks.
MSLP Flute Grbavac - over 900 samples, 180 megs
compressed. There are vibrato and non-vibrato modes with 3 velocity
layers, round robin staccatos and more.
MSLP Trombone Knutsson - 650 samples, 84 megs, 3 velocity layers, staccato round robins, gliss, swells and more. Note that the sonic jump from the loudest layer to the middle layer is quite extreme.
MSLP Trombone Knutsson Ensemble - 500 samples, 56 megs, when 1 trombone isn't enough.
MSLP Cello Lofberg - 68 megs, 800+ samples, 3 velocity layers in sustain and staccato and more
MSLP Piano Grand Soft - fully sampled, 1 soft velocity layer so it
works nicely as an intimate piano.
MSLP Marimba - fully sampled with two velocity layers as well as a mute layer.
MSLP Xylo - fully sampled in two velocity layers with non-mute and mute.
MSLP Vibro - fully sampled, 1 velocity layer long, short, mute and bowed.
that the following are (hopefully) fun audio toys rather than serious
instruments. They have one velocity layer and often the samples are too
MSLP Acoustic Guitar Chords and MSLP Electric Guitar Chords
- Strum in either major or minor chords. 3 round robins. It really sounds like someone strumming a guitar and that can be
hard to find.
MSLP Acoustic Lil Nylon - A little guitar.
Eight MSLP Basses - Wide variety of Basses.
MSLP Double Bass Lofberg - Has sustain, staccato and pizzicato for solo and ensemble.
MSLP Mandolin Nillsson - 750 samples, 1 velocity layer, that's a lot of round robins.
MSLP Folk Violin Lofberg - A fiddle that has seen better days, samples are short.
MSLP Banjo - Team with the fiddle and the mandolin for a country jam. 6 round robins.
MSLP Sad Clarinet - Lightly sampled, will give you the blues.
MSLP Saxophone - From earlier Sax collection. More a sax sound collection than a true instrument.

MSLP Timpani Long Crescendo
MSLP Jingle Bells
Speaking of Toys here is a collection of sampled toys
