KOMPLETE 13 - BEFORE You Buy It WATCH This + SOUND Demos
Arkhis is a great start to K13, especially for more leftfield, delicate, modern and, importantly, very usable soundtrack ingredients. Mysteria is another (and not the last) soundtrack instrument, this time based around the voice, with 800 sources, 600 playable layers and 350 presets.

Once you open up Balkan Orchestra, you'll bring it into your palette permanently. There's plenty of characterful sounds, sometimes guttural with human imperfections, and other times precise and well recorded. Love this.
If you wish to change the instrument that tracker automatically detected, you can manually switch the target sound to any other part of the kit. This is a really great feature with a lot of depth, so if you are interested in using this tool within your songs, you can check out more here:
Simply dragging and dropping MIDI into Battery 4 allows you to set up your sounds to performance MIDI controllers. Battery 4 uses all current sample file formats including .wav, .aiff, .nki, and .txt. For a more comprehensive list, please see this link.
So how does that translate to those contributing the sounds available on the platform? Since its launch, Splice has paid out $15 million to sample creators and that number is looking to double by next year! With so many other sample and sound kit marketplaces out there like Loopmasters and many others, this market for sound designers, music producers, and beatmakers will continue to grow in excess of 100 million dollars in the near future.
Splice is the fastest growing sample marketplace there is. Their subscription-based model makes it extremely simple for beatmakers and music producers to download the specific sounds they're looking for each month. New packs are regularly added to their platform and they are working with some of the biggest producer names in the business like Scott Storch and Boi-1da. Because of this, they won't just accept anyone's sound kits and sample packs. But if you think you got what it takes, check out their sound quality principles (very educational read even if you don't get your material on Splice) and access their submission form.
