ORANGE is a Kontakt sound library* based on the sounds of the legandary Waldorf Microwave XTk synthesizer.

ORANGE provides everything you need: wild leads, phhatt pads, extraterrestrial ambients, killer basses, morphing arpeggios, vivid strings, from soft and warm sounds to ice-cold one!


404 Kontakt patches in 7 categories:
   - [All layers]
   - Arp & Sequence
   - Bass & Lead (poly)
   - FX & Percussion
   - PolySynth
   - Monosynth
   - Atmosphere

1.96 GB stereo multisamples (1840 wav files)

12 midi controllable knobs for realtime tweaking and for midi automation of the most important synth parameters

extensive editing techniques: multiple velocity layers, alternate triggering and sample starts to achieve fat, lively and vivid synth sounds


* please note: our Kontakt banks require the full retail version of Kontakt 3.5 (or more recent version), they are not compatible with the free Kontakt Player. ORANGE is available in Reason refill format as well.




The name comes from the colour of the original synth: the German Waldorf Microwave XTk is a legend! There is nothing like its sound, and it has inspired a lot of performers since its appearance in 1995.

Microwave XTk is a virtual analogue instrument, which produces the sound by using the spectral wavetable synthesis developed by Waldorf, and combines it with 10 types of special "Waldorf" filters.
