Welcome to the Audio Pirates library of goodies
Here you will find a whole archive of links to Audio Production Software, VST, DX, RTAS & AU instruments & Effects, as well as links to other useful software.
You will also find audio links here too, including breaks & samples, a capellas, DJ/radio mixes, albums, compilations and cool music videos.


Everything on here is from links I've found on the web, i haven't uploaded any of this stuff myself.
I have tested and do use some of this stuff but not all of it, its a good idea to scan anything you download before using it just to be safe :)

Already based on a versatile sampler engine, Kontakt 4 establishes the next level in sampling with the addition of exclusive new Authentic Expression Technology (AET). With AET, the dynamic tonal behaviour of original instruments can be replicated in new and highly expressive ways. The technology enables the seamless transformation between the spectral characteristics of different sounds, achieved via a phase-corrected convolution technique based on FFT analysis of the original sample. AET avoids the typical shortcomings of conventional velocity layer techniques, and gives additional realism to sampled instruments like strings, brass, woodwinds and choirs. AET also makes it possible to combine and blend the spectral characteristics of any set of sounds in real time, opening up vast new possibilities for creative sound design.

Kontakt 4 also overcomes existing performance barriers through a unique sample compression technology that allows musicians and producers to get substantially more out of their setups. Specifically developed for Kontakt, the new NCW compression format reduces sample size by up to 50 percent. During playback in Kontakt 4, the sample material is decompressed to its exact original format with minimal CPU load, and without any loss in audio fidelity. This substantially widens the typical performance bottleneck of today's computer systems, and results in profound performance gains for complex multi-timbral arrangements and high-polyphony instruments.

The sound library of Kontakt has been enhanced and expanded once again in its fourth revision. A major addition is a full-featured chamber choir collection, recorded exclusively for Kontakt 4 and equipped with AET-based vowel morphing controls. Further additions include solo strings and a concert organ from the VSL library, as well as a painstakingly sampled Mellotron that complements the extensive "Vintage" collection in the Kontakt factory library. A new professional impulse response library also expands the value of the powerful convolution effect integrated in Kontakt. Now at 44 GB, the Kontakt 4 factory library provides a comprehensive arsenal of acoustic and synthetic instruments for all areas of professional composition and music production.

To utilize the Kontakt library in the most efficient way, Kontakt 4 also introduces a new sound browser with greatly enhanced convenience. Users can search for instruments, multis, samples and even effect presets based on clear musical attributes, making it easy to find the right material for any application and context. Drag-and-Drop assignment and support for custom attributes allow to easily manage even the most diverse sound collections, and get the most out of the range of Kontakt-compatible instrument content on the market.

Other improvements in Kontakt 4 include the unique Kontakt Script Processor (KSP), which now offers a whole new level of functionality through powerful "Multi Scripts." The new version also offers greatly enhanced design possibilities for Performance View panels, which brings improved usability and a more distinctive look to Kontakt-based instruments.
