NITRON Samplebased Synthesizer
The more than 1000 included Nitron patches are high quality multi-samples from more than 50 different synthesizers. You will find a broad range of classics as well as lesser known synthesizers from the last 30 years in this bold collection. The library is focused on providing the fattest possible lead and bass sounds. This product is well suited for techno, drum ‘n’ bass, dubstep, hip hop, bigbeat, trance and electro, as well as pop and ambient music.
Nitron is based on Native Instruments' award winning Kontakt 5.
Nitron cannot be compared to other sample-based libraries, which give you very limited or no access at all to editing and tweaking your sounds. Nitron is like a real synthesizer, using high end source samples as oscillators. If you own the full Kontakt 4 version, you can use the countless possibilities of this sophisticated sampler to tweak your sounds, giving you access to an almost infinite number of sound creations for any music style imaginable. Tweaking of course is also possible with the included Kontakt Player, so don’t wait to give it a try.
Top features included are low pass filters, high pass, band pass, vowel and phaser filters. The user can choose between poly and mono mode as well as an authentic legato mode. A unison mode plus a global saturator make your sounds as fat and rich as possible. Via the mod wheel you can access useful parameter assignments for all patches like additional high pass filters, tremolo or vibrato giving this must have package a finishing touch.
Most patches use effects like Chorus, Flanger, Delay and Convolution Reverb. In the Kontakt Player version you need to turn on the FX button to use this effects. In the full Kontakt version, the effects can be edited or replaced with other effects you like.
This synthesizer/library has been produced by the Swiss producer & sound designer Urban Riedo - Tunebeast
Nitron comes with the Kontakt 5 player. It can also be used with Kontakt full version 4.1 or higher.

Synth-based sample packs are ten a penny, but Nitron stands head and shoulders above the vast majority of them.
So what’s the bottom line?
I like a library with character, and when it comes to synth libraries for Kontakt I love the interface to provide enough control to tweak the instrument properly.
I give this library 4 out of 5 subs, it’s a really useful library. Not only does Nitron have a really sexy interface, but the sounds that can be had in this thing are just plain good….period.
There’s enough here to keep anyone busy pulling up and tweaking sounds. Again, the fact that you can get some pretty raw, rather huge sounds without taking a hit on your processor is a big plus in my book.
Efficient instruments are always a plus, fast loading, cpu friendly, without compromising on the actual sound….sounds like a winner to me.
If you’re looking for a huge does of new synth sounds and you don’t want to worry about if your cpu can handle it, I highly suggest taking a look at this library
Q: Can I use the included Kontakt Player for playing other libraries in Kontakt format (.nki plus .wav files)?
A: No, they only work in a 15 minutes demo mode
Q: When trying to "Add Library" my Kontakt shows a message "No Library found"
A: Then this is not a protected Kontakt library, but an open Kontakt format. You can find additional hints for Kontakt Libraries in that Sounds & Gear Video
