Asgard is a sampler (Kontakt instrument), and a Viking vst created by Danheim.
It includes everything from the most powerful drums, which almost echoes into Asgard itself.
Bowed lyre drones, tagelharpa drones, dark textures, percussions, and every other instrument you can imagine from the Viking age.
– Authentic excavated antique Viking objects were recorded and sampled for Asgard. This is the first time since C.850-1050 AD, that these amazing objects will be heard again, and now come to life through sound and music.

– 1.06GB: Compressed lossless .ncw audio files
– Full retail version of Kontakt 5.8.1 or later required
– Compatible with Windows & MacOS
– Overdrive (Saturation)
– Pitch -12 / +12
– Realtime value labels
– Reverb: A subtle real convolution room reverb
Every preset has been edited and set manually. Starting points were adjusted for the best result during the performance of the patches. Seamless loop points were set also manually. General fixes etc were done during the sample mapping process.
