The Toolbox ensembles are excellent. I have been using them in my work. Normal bell samples arent as flexible as these and they sound just as good if not better.

Creative Physical Modeling Toolbox for Reaktor 5

I am proud to introduce The Creative Physical Modeling Toolbox for Reaktor 5, based on ‘modes of vibration’ (or resonances). This unique Toolbox allows you to create your own instrument models by setting the amplitude and rate of each resonance (16-40 per resonator). The resonance and amplitude data can be obtained from the free (Mac/PC) analysis program PRAAT. For more general sound checks I often use MakingMusic

Unused resonances can be turned off for less CPU usage. Each resonator has also a serie of overall parameters, like decay & release, damping, (material)stiffness, mass, etc. Because the Toolbox works in real-time, you can morph from, let’s say a guitar string into a gong and back.

The Toolbox comes with a description of the tools and a large instrument library, featuring both pluck/struck/bouncing/rolling/scraping as well as wind instruments.Listen to the MP3’s for an impression of the instrument models, which are included. (I have added only some reverb from Altiverb, other effects like delays, and even cross synthesis comes from inside the Toolbox )

Alle the instruments are ensembles, for instant playing.

For more details and a list of included instruments, download the manual. In the meanwhile the list is far from complete, because of the fast growing number of instruments. Click here for a picture of a Guitarmodel.

The price of the Toolbox is 189 USD.
