Before recording this library, we spent months creating custom instruments and exploring alternative articulations to create a refined collection of sounds that would truly stand out from anything else on the market. We decided that this library would be the perfect addition to our highly popular Mini tools range, which features a collection of boutique virtual instruments designed to inspire and deliver at an affordable price. These libraries are truly the gems in our collection, as they define our mission at Sonixinema – to redefine the expectations of traditional instruments, and inspire new musical possibilities.

To take things a step further, in 2018 we decided to create our first sample pack which was based upon the sounds created for the Kontakt version of Primal. This means that as well as the Kontakt Library, you will also have direct access to the wavs which feature Primal's best sounds, loops and risers.

For this library we adapted Kontakt engine based on the work of Jeremiah Pena, which features four tabs - the Main engine, Effects engine, Rhythm engine and the Output engine. The main engine features a flexible three layer mixer, which allows you to control the volume, panning and pitch of any given layer. Also on this tab you can access to an amp, pitch and filter envelope. The effects engine provides easy access to all insert and send effects such as reverb, delay, chorus, distortion, reverb and other useful controls perfect for shaping your sound. The rhythm engine allows you to program 16 step rhythmic patterns using the step sequencer, and is incredibly useful for creating instant energy and excitement with static sounds. The output engine features a built in 4 band EQ system, along with a stereo width control and compressor.
