Many people have asked me online where to get great free Kontakt instruments. Here at Genera Studios we have a free Juno-106 Kontakt instrument, but if you produce music you probably want to have dozens or hundreds of Kontakt instrument. Recently we came across an excellent website called FLStudioMusic which has links to hundreds of free Kontakt instruments released over the years. They also link to free samples, loops, plugins, presets, MIDI, and more. The internet has more free music content than you could ever hope to use in a lifetime, but the problem is its not always easy to...

I've never heard of Rob Papen Inspiration Soundware until very recently. Apparently he (or they) have been making virtual instruments and effects for a while, because they have a huge bundle of software called Explorer-5.

You can buy the Explorer-5 bundle for only $499 on their website. This bundle is massive, and I probably don't...
