Hardstyle Kick Configurator v1.5

(3 customer reviews)


The Ultimate Hardstyle Kick Configurator instrument for Kontakt VST Full Edition.
Developed and coded by A-lusion, for Hardstyle Producers around the globe.

In the many producer masterclasses provided by A-lusion in the past years, he shared his recipe for developing Hardstyle Kicks.
For those not interested in developing a Hardstyle Kick from scratch, this Kick Configurator is the solution. Or to speed up your workflow.
A total of 20 attacks, 25 tails, 17 raw attack / punch sounds and 25 sweeps are included and you can load your own samples.

Updated to v1.5 with Drag & Drop Sample import support Read more

This product is also available in the Hardstyle Producer Complete Vol. 1.

This instrument requires the FULL version of VST / AU Kontakt 5.6 (version 1.2.1) or 6.3.2 (version 1.5) or newer to work. The free Kontakt Player VST will enforce a 15-minute DEMO time-out at this instrument. The Kick Configurator instrument doesn’t have a trial period or demo version.  If you want to hear some of the sounds and quality, you can check the product walk-through video below. DEUTSCH: Sie benötigen die Vollversion von Kontakt, nicht die Kontakt Player

SKU: LUS-AUDIO-6 Category: Tag:


Note: All kick layers have been created, processed and shaped by A-lusion over the past 10 years.
The software coding has taken many months. We hope you respect the effort put into this and not share your purchase on warez sites and with colleague producers.

Updated to version 1.5
The update to version 1.5 is now available. We advise you to use version 1.5 next to the previous versions so don’t overwrite the files. See below for the change log.
Version 1.5 requires Kontakt v6.3.2 to run. If you have a version of Kontakt between 5.6 and 6.3.2 you can use the 1.2.1 version which is also still included in the order download.

Is it a VST plugin with installer?
No, it is a Kontakt Instrument for which you need NI Kontakt version 5.6 or newer. If you want to use the drag & drop sample import feature you need Kontakt version 6.3.2 or newer.
The instrument is in fact a library based on pre-defined samples. You can replace the samples with your own sample if you have those, by replacing the audio files in the folder.

Does this work in FL Studio or other DAW?
It works in FL studio as it runs inside Native Instrument Kontakt. Kontakt works in any DAW that supports VST / AU (Cubase, FL Studio, Logic, Ableton Live, Studio One, et cetera).

Can I use the free Kontakt Player mode?
You actually can but a 15-minute demo timeout is enforced by Native Instruments in every session you use it. You will see a DEMO notice and you can’t save the .NKI.
To fully use the instrument you need the Kontakt full version.

Will future updates of the instrument be included?
Yes, possible future updates can be downloaded from your login account
