QUICK LOOK: ARCO – Bowed & Plucked Piano Ensemble by Fracture Sounds

Arco is a Kontakt instrument sampled from an ensemble of four pianos. The pianos were recorded in a concert hall with a range of bowed and plucked articulations.

The library downloads as just under 6 GB and does require the full version of Kontakt 5.3 or higher.

ARCO sells for £99.00 from Fracture Sounds

At the time of posting the instrument was on a special intro price of £75.00 .

 

In this quick look video, I play through some of the instruments and poke around a bit in the easy to use interface to hear what the library has to offer.

Although this is a specialty instrument and will not appeal to a wide range of music makers, I think ARCO will be very useful for those of us who are looking for unique and original timbres for underscore and sound design.

I’ll update the page soon with a full written review from contributor Steven McDonald.

For now, I have included all the demos, official videos below so you can learn more about this sample library from Fractured Sounds.
