Product Information

ZERO-G NOSTALGIA is now ready to load into your copy of Native Instruments KONTAKT. It features around 1.3GB of WAV sounds (over 4,500 samples) from four decades of electronic instruments. Also includes 1,100 KONTAKT (.nki) patches.


Whatever your chosen musical genre there’s a place for any of these sounds in your music. Whether it’s old-skool lo-fi beatboxes, huge Gothic Tron sounds, smooth Prophet pads and strings, beefy Moog basses or leads, classic electric pianos, swirly string synths, cheezy toys, classic samplers, brittle digital synths, evolving S+S textures ... you name it - with over 4,500 samples and more than 1,100 patches, it’s probably there in this huge Kontakt collection that has effectively been 40 years in the making.


Programming wizard and all-round synth enthusiast STEVE HOWELL has used his 30+ years of experience and knowledge of these various instruments to create arguably the best and most accurate representations of some of the world’s greatest synths, keyboards and beat boxes that he has either owned or used in a professional capacity as either a sound designer, sound engineer, player or composer.


Steve has also used his 16+ years of developing professional sample sound libraries to provide highly optimised and memory-efficient, seamlessly looped samples of a heritage of instruments that have paved the way for where we are today - over 40 years of innovation and (often naive) pioneering spirit encapsulated in one definitive collection of abject ‘NOSTALGIA’!

Users of NI KONTAKT or NI KOMPAKT please note:

The Altered States library is presented in WAV format together with Kontakt instrument (.nki) patches. This download version is not a plugin or so called "ROMpler" and no Native Instruments 'player' software is included. You can use the WAV files with any software, or load whole instrument patches (.nki files) into NI Kontakt or NI Kompakt.

Press Reviews

"Truly wonderful sounds!... Nostalgia is...

by Sound On Sound Magazine, UK

"Truly wonderful sounds!... Nostalgia is excellent. Zero-G and Steve Howell should be congratulated for putting together such a large number of 'classic' sounds in a single, very affordable library. I had no problems creating complete instrumental pieces using just the sounds within Nostalgia. What's more, [the Kontakt patches] make very good use of processing options to add further colour and movement to many of the sounds.. What is here sounds consistently good, the samples are well programmed.. If you like the sounds of classic synths and drum machines, but could never afford to buy even a modest selection of the electronic instruments represented here, this library is an excellent way to get a flavour of the sounds without breaking the bank. For sheer fun and 'bang for buck', Nostalgia is certainly worth FIVE STARS, and I'd probably give it more if I could! Rated: 5 STARS out of 5"

"If you’ve got a taste for the decidedly...

by Future Music Magazine, UK

"If you’ve got a taste for the decidedly retro then you’ll absolutely love this.. the list of sounds provided reads like a classic synthesizer museum guide, but also offers a wealth of sounds from practically every chintzy sound source you could possibly imagine... There’s a phenomenal amount of obscure drum hits slotted in amongst the usual 808/909 business, which are bound to bring back a few memories to the majority of you – we swear we’ve heard them in many a pop classic over the years. The pads are of an exceptional quality as well, especially the glassy, organic collection of FM soundscapes – the likes of which make Eno proud.. This is a truly wide-ranging collection for ‘through the ages’ synth fans"

"As you would expect from such key...

by iDJ (International DJ Magazine)

"As you would expect from such key players in the field, the sounds available on Nostalgia are of very high quality.. and there’s a variety on offer that will keep you hooked on this title for some time.. it will appeal to all kinds of dance music producers.. suitable for styles as far apart as soulful house and dark drum & bass.. you could create full tracks with this.. with the sheer usability of the sounds I can see Nostalgia getting a lot of love both in the studio and on stage... Verdict: Great fun and high quality, this is one of the best retro [sample libraries] currently available"

"This is a commendable package... The...

by Music Tech magazine, UK

"This is a commendable package... The perfect sample library for the synth enthusiast on a budget. Nostalgia gives musicians, sound designers and producers access to a wealth of instruments, many of which haven't yet been emulated effectively as virtual instruments... All of the synth sounds breathe character and it truly is a delight to play each of the classic synths, many of which you will recognise only by sound and not necessarily by name.. Scrolling through the patch list gives an idea of the depth that Nostalgia provides: there are sounds for nearly every commonly used synth, as well as a number of obscure synths and beatboxes... We were impressed with the sound quality of Nostalgia's sample library"
