Intro: About Virtual Instruments

The benefits of virtual instruments are fairly obvious. They take up much less space than their hardware equivalents, they don’t overheat, and many of them have virtually unlimited polyphony. They are also much easier to edit and they almost never break down.

Here we run down some of the most intriguing virtual instruments currently available. Although some purists may scoff at the idea of these replacing their well-loved guitars or keyboards, there is no denying that they provide a surprising range of great sounds at a price that even professional musicians will appreciate.

Native Instruments’ Kontakt Player is arguably the Don of all free virtual instrument plug-ins. Based on the company’s own hugely successful Kontakt sampler, Kontakt Player effectively hosts all sample-based instruments developed for its more fully-featured big brother.

The compatibility goes the other way as well. All free instruments developed specifically for Kontakt Player will load up and play in the full version of Kontakt. Between the two, there is a staggering assortment of free and paid instruments, all boasting of the trademark Native Instrument quality.

To get budget-savvy musicians and producers started, NI offers a free Kontakt Factory Selection consisting of 50 premium instruments. Some of these are slightly cut-down versions of the instruments developed for Kontakt, while some are full versions developed specifically for Kontakt Player.

While Kontakt Player focuses mainly on standard instrument libraries, Native Instruments’ Reaktor Player is geared more towards the synthesis side of things.

Demonstration

Reaktor is of course the full-blown modular synthesis environment that gives users unparalleled and unlimited opportunity to design virtually any type of synthesizer, sequencer, or signal processor they could think of from scratch. With Reaktor Player, users are able to play back a wide variety of instruments and effects developed in and for Reaktor, with a more modest set of editing capabilities.

As with Kontakt Player, there is a huge range of ready-made instruments available for use in Reaktor Player. NI even offers two free devices to get you started: the Blocks Wired pre-patched modular synth and the Mikro Prism synthesizer.

Reaktor Player obviously doesn’t come close to providing the depth of power and customizability offered by the full version of Reaktor. Nevertheless, it is a good introduction to modular synthesis. Furthermore, the availability of hundreds of Reaktor instruments cover a board range of sound-crafting options.

Ample Guitar M Lite is the free version of Ample Sounds’ popular AGM guitar simulator. Emulating the warm, rich tones of the Martin D-41 acoustic guitar, Ample Guitar M Lite is now on its second version.

For the price of a free download, you get an enhanced set of features that now match the capabilities of the full version. The note range now spans E1 – C5, and the plug-in now works as a standalone instrument. Even if you do opt to use the instrument in your DAW, multiple instances will take up much less resources than before, and they will load up faster as well.

As you may have guessed from the name, Ample Bass P Lite is Ample Sound’s free bass guitar sample player plug-in. A cut-down version of the full Ample Bass P II component of the company’s Bass Series product line, this plug-in has fewer samples and fewer round robin variations than the full version. It also has a smaller note range than the paid product, covering D1 to F4. Nevertheless, the Ample Bass P Lite does a good job of cranking out the distinctive tones of the Fender Precision Bass, which it models.

Manda Audio’s MT Power Drum Kit is a free drum sampler that has a fairly wide selection of acoustic drum kit sounds. Great care has been taken to record and process the original samples, giving users a range of high-quality drum sounds perfectly suited for pop, rock, and even metal.

Those who wish to process their drum sounds with their own plug-ins might not appreciate the fact that the MT Power Drum’s sounds are already processed. Nevertheless, EQ and compression were applied quite tastefully, and the sounds should fit in well in most mixes.

Demonstration

Togu Audio Line has garnered quite a bit of acclaim for its excellent line of synthesizers and effects processors, a number of which are free. NoiseMaker is one of these, and it compares favorably to the company’s own paid emulation of the Roland Juno 106 analog synth, the TAL-U-NO-LX.

The NoiseMaker incorporates some of TAL’s more popular effects processors on board. There is the Juno-derived chorus with two modes for starters, along with a reverb, a delay, and a bitcrusher, all of which exist as free standalone plug-ins.

DistroCore’s DC Bazz::Murda is a bass and kick synthesizer that is capable of a surprisingly wide array of sounds. Although aggressive and distorted industrial sounds are its forte, it can be dialed back for more subdued tones as well. Even so, this is one plug-in that was obviously designed to get as loud and nasty as possible. For some users, that could be a good thing!

Top Pick

Native Instruments’ Kontakt Player and Reaktor Player are a couple of the best free virtual instruments that you can get, without a doubt. They provide a superb one-two punch that simply can’t be beat.

Between the two, you pretty much have all your bases covered, whether you need bread-and-butter rompler sounds, exotic World Music libraries, or synthetic sounds ranging from vintage to cutting-edge.

Given the wide range of sounds they cover and the trademark NI quality, these two are neck-and-neck as our top picks for best virtual instrument plug-ins.

We’ve developed tools to help you guide how your students use devices and apps in the classroom, and give you valuable insight into each student’s progress as they work with them. So you can focus on what’s most important: teaching.

The Classroom app is a versatile teaching assistant that puts teachers in charge of every iPad and Mac in the classroom, so they can keep students on track.
The Schoolwork app lets you easily assign anything from worksheets to activities in educational apps, follow students’ progress, and collaborate with them in real time.

A home base for you and your students.

The best way to learn is by doing and making. The Schoolwork app helps you and your students more effectively use the creative power of iPad. You can easily distribute and collect assignments, keep an eye on student progress in educational apps, and collaborate one on one with students from anywhere, in real time. It’s easy for students to use, too. Assignments automatically appear on their iPad, organized by due date and class. And Schoolwork helps you keep track of how everyone in class is doing — so you can tailor your teaching to the needs of each of your students.

  • Easily share content with students
  • Leverage the power of apps
  • View students’ progress across all their work
  • Tailor instruction to student needs
  • Collaborate and provide instant feedback

Easily send out anything from announcements to assignments with Handouts.

Handouts are as easy to create and send as an email, and flexible enough to contain almost anything: web links, PDFs, documents, and even links to activities in apps. You can use them for announcements, reminders, or assignments. And your students can view Handouts across all their classes to keep track of everything they need to complete.

Assign an entire class — or an individual student — a Handout. Enter the recipient, date, description, and activity, and choose the optional request for return if you want the student to hand something in.

Once your handout is ready, just tap the arrow to send.

Some of the most useful educational materials are found within apps. But students, especially younger ones, often have a hard time finding those materials. Schoolwork makes it as easy as possible to direct students to the right place in the right app. First you can browse popular apps like Tynker, Duolingo, and GeoGebra to find content that fits your curriculum. Then you can select a specific app activity to share with students on a Handout. When students get the Handout with the activity you’ve chosen, they can go right to the activity with a single tap. It’s all made possible by a new developer framework called ClassKit. Many top educational apps are using ClassKit already, with even more on the way.

  • Kahoot!
  • Journeys of Invention

  • GeoGebra Graphing Calculator
  • Quizlet
    Flashcards
  • Tynker: Coding for Kids
  • Explain EDU
  • Hopscotch
  • Puppet Pals (School Edition)
  • TinyTap

Tap to add an app activity, and you’ll get a list of all your available apps, highlighting those that support student progress.

Once you tap a supported app, you can browse a list of activities and view more detail on each.

Tap to add the selected app activity to your Handout. It’s that easy.

Schoolwork and the apps built to support it provide insight that’s never been possible before. When your school enables the student progress feature, you’ll get a snapshot of each student’s overall class performance, be able to check on students' app activities, and see how far they’ve gotten on assignments. It allows you to tailor your teaching to each of your students — whether they need an extra challenge or extra help. And because Apple cares deeply about privacy, this information is just between you and your students. We don’t look at it or use the information. Ever.

See how all of your students are doing across the Handouts you’ve assigned.

Tap into an individual activity to get a more detailed view of how each student is progressing.

Check in on students’ work to see how they’re doing across all of their Handouts and tailor your teaching to each student’s needs. You can even return work to a student and ask to try again.

Work in real time together, even when you’re not together.

When you use Pages, Numbers, or Keynote in Schoolwork, it takes just a few taps to collaborate with your students on their assignments and add written or verbal feedback directly to their documents — at any time, from anywhere. You can even use Apple Pencil on iPad to mark up Pages documents as easily as you do on paper.

Once IT gets you set up, you’re all set.

Schoolwork will be set up for you by your IT department using Apple School Manager. They’ll take care of keeping your class lists up to date as students move in and out of your class. If enabled by your IT department in Apple School Manager, you can now also create and manage your own classes.

Classroom

Keep your class fun and engaged. And focused.

The Classroom app turns your iPad — and now your Mac — into a powerful teaching assistant. It puts you in the driver’s seat of every iPad and Mac in class, so you can guide students through lessons and keep them focused on the task at hand. Classroom also makes it easy to share information — send and receive files with the entire class and individual students using AirDrop, or show student work on the big screen.

Make sure everyone is on task. And on the right screen.

View any student’s screen on your iPad or Mac. Classroom allows you to see every student’s screen at the same time and navigate individual students or the entire class to a web page, book, or app. You can also lock students into a single iPad app or mute audio on student devices, so students stay focused.

Privacy is built into everything we make.

Teachers see all of the wonderful things created by their students. We don’t. All Apple products are built with an integrated approach to privacy and security — providing schools with devices, apps, and services that keep student work and personal information secure. And with Managed Apple IDs, the school controls student information and can choose to enable or disable apps and services such as iMessage, FaceTime, or student progress reporting with the Schoolwork app.

Apple has received ISO 27001 and 27018 Certifications for implementing an Information Security Management System with measures for protecting PII in public cloud environments. We also meet the requirements of the new EU GDPR framework. In addition, Apple has signed the Student Privacy Pledge, further underscoring our commitment to protecting the information of students, parents, and teachers shared in our schools.
