Project Exodus free Kontakt instrument by Bryan Lake aka Sound Author.

Project Exodus is an epic free Kontakt library for electronic musicians, film score composers, sound designers and anyone else looking to add that earth shattering cinematic feel to their music or video projects. The library was crafted by Bryan Lake aka Sound Author, who is the man behind our insanely popular Project Pegasus sound bank that was released in November 2014 and downloaded over 30,000 times so far.

Project Exodus picks up where Project Pegasus left off, delivering an even bigger collection of blockbuster movie style atmospheres, pads, sound effects and cinematic loops, packed in a sophisticated custom user interface for Native Instruments Kontakt. The short introductory demo video embedded below should give you some idea about the type of sounds that you’ll find in this epic free sample collection.



The library is organized into three subfolders containing soundscapes, instruments and sequences. The patches have been fine tweaked and edited with great care, so all that’s left for you to do is to load the instrument on your computer and enjoy the ride. The included patches cover a wide range of cinematic pads, huge soundscapes, drones, drum loops and epic sound effects. The looped sequences are labeled with BPM info for easier integration in your digital audio workstation of choice.

Technical Details

Project Exodus contains 127 instrument patches for Native Instruments Kontakt 5. The NKI patches are based on a custom scripted user interface that provides hands-on control over parameters like reverb, delay, filter and distortion. To load a patch, simply drag and drop the NKI file into Kontakt, or use the built-in file browser.

Please note that the full version of Kontakt is required in order to use the patches without a time limit (this is a limitation of Kontakt Player itself). The library also contains a set of standard 24-bit stereo WAV files with loop markers, extending the list of compatible software to virtually all digital audio workstations and sampler instruments on the market. We will expand the library with more formats (such as SFZ) in the future.

    So, how do you install the entire thing into Kontakt? after unpacking, I see a ton of ski files, do I have to drag each of them into Kontakt or is there one file that I can install that will access the entire library like a normal Kontakt instrument?

      Hey Nick,

      Unfortunately, to create a commercial-grade Kontakt library, there is an expensive license the publisher must purchase. So, these are just NKI files you can either drag and drop individually within Kontakt, or just open one of them and use the left/right arrows to flip through the patches within the wrapper.

    Once again too awesome. Project Pegasus inspired me to create my own virtual instruments by creating samples of chords for each key in 1 octave. Now i have a MULTI PART instrument with 5 layers that have 4 variations over 4 octaves. I could not have thought of this if not for Project Pegasus. If you are interested i will upload.

      Thanks analogfrog! I’m flattered that you were inspired by Project Pegasus to create your own sampled instrument, which sounds very interesting. Where can we find it?

    Very Interesting – but the *.nki files do not load under Kontakt 5.5.2 (Mac OSX 10.9.5)! Always get message: “This patch was generated by a newer version of this application. Please upgrade your copy to load the patch”. Any idea? THANKS

      I had a similar problem a while back. I had to uninstall Kontakt and download the new version. Worked for me :)
