ORANGE is a Kontakt sound library* based on the sounds of the legendary Waldorf Microwave XTk synthesizer.

ORANGE provides a great collection of vivid and powerful sounds: wild leads, phhatt pads, extraterrestrial ambients, killer basses, morphing arpeggios, sweet strings, from soft and warm sounds to ice-cold one.

Most of the patches are velocity sensitive and they have been designed for live performers, so a good midi keyboard which supports velocity and aftertouch is highly recommended.


* Important: ORANGE nki patches require the full retail version of Kontakt (v5.5 or more recent version), as our products are not compatible with the free Kontakt Player - it will stop working after 15 minutes!



The Kontakt instruments of ORANGE (.nki files) are distributed in 7 categories:

[All layers]
O2 Arp & Sequence
O2 Bass
O2 FX & Percussion
O2 Key & Polysynth
O2 Lead   (32
O2 Pad& Atmosphere

385 patches in total, based on 2 GB stereo multisamples

The [All Layers] is a special folder for sound designers. It contains all of the instrument layers separately. The patches are “clean”, without any filter effect and with default envelope settings. They can be useful if you want to create new sounds from scratch.

Please note that these categories are not carved in stone, they're just our approach. For example you can use a bass sound as lead, or a polysynth key as monosynth lead or even a pad when you tweak it a bit... it's really up to you!

The name comes from the colour of the original synth: the German Waldorf Microwave XTk is a legend! There is nothing like its sound, and it has inspired a lot of performers since its appearance in 1995.

Microwave XTk is a virtual analogue instrument, which produces the sound by using the spectral wavetable synthesis developed by Waldorf, and combines it with 10 types of special "Waldorf" filters.
