Tips & Tricks

Hold Shift when adjusting parameters for extra precision

For all the 'Acoustics Folder Unfold' patches, first press the little bypass button on the bottom of each effect if you want to add distortion or saturation. This was a decision to make sure the patches are not processed unless desired so

Automate the Sample Start on the acoustics unfold patches for more variation and movement

Do not forget to install the Snapshorts, a great way to get some examples of what the Designer Patch is capable of 

Press the right mouseclick on a knob or slider to add your own desired CC

Almost all patches have a Modwheel function assigned so always make sure you wiggle it before playing/recording to ensure the volume and/or dynamics crossfade amount/automation is as desired

The Pluck Elements Patch is meant for sound-design purposes and to quickly get ideas down and experiment with effects. All short articulations have fewer round robins in this patch than in all the individual patches of these instruments

This Sample Library is definitely not aimed to become your new bread-and-butter guitar library, but rather at evoking new ideas.  experimentation with new sounds and adding different raw, and sometimes gritty textures and accompanying rhythmical short pluck instruments to your project


FULL License For Native Instruments Kontakt 6 (VST/AU/AAX) (this library is NOT compatible with the FREE kontakt PLAYER)

Contains Around 14.500 separately recorded samples, so requires 30GB (compressed by Kontakt from roughly 40GB of minimum hard drive space , delivered in ncw. format

Mac OS X 10.10 or later, Intel Core 2 Duo and/or Windows 7, Windows 8, or Windows 10 (latest Service Pack, 32/64-bit) Intel Core 2 Duo or AMD Athlon 64 X2

Please Note:

Some of the Sound-Design Patches can be very heavy on CPU.

Most patches are recorded and sampled in whole tone, only a few are chromatically sampled.

Please watch all walkthroughs thoroughly to see if the raw character of this library is for you

The scratchy pitchy Indie Violin patches are added for sound-design purposes, and to experiment with in the Designer Patch to layer in and to add crazy wild sounds, not meant to use in your next John Williams masterpiece!


I'm an indie developer, and this should be considered a niche library for textural colors. 

By purchasing The Unfolding Sun you agree to all the terms and conditions described in the license agreement that can be found under the Unfolding Sun v2 Tab. 


More Info: 

     First Version of The Unfolding Sun Released in June 2020

Recorded at 48000, 24bit 

Recorded with two SE Electronics SE 2300 mics in stereo, Two Omni and One Ribbon Mic and A Shure microphone. 

This library is my first library, a result of my collection of instruments from many different cultures that I have acquired over the years

Up to 8 recorded Dynamic Layers and up to 16 Round Robins (On Percussion)

Great variety in Sound Design patches and processed Perc Hits


Unfolding patches slightly premixed for quicker results


All Demo's have a limiter and EQ on the Master bus and some Compression and on some demo's I have used Seventh Heaven to add more reverb.

All instruments are performed & recorded by me, except the Female vocals, which was sung by Sophie V.
