PAZ | 3 JULY 2013 | 56 GB


Berlin Woodwinds is the first sample library to offer a complete orchestral woodwind section allowing the composer to write for up to woodwinds in 2s (meaning 2 flutes, 2 oboes, 2 clarinets and 2 bassoons), with doubles (Piccolo and English horn). There’s also a third flute.

BWW is different from other libraries where at most 2 flutes or 2 oboes might have been recorded, but not multiple players to create a complete symphonic section.

Previously, if you wanted two of anything, you would either have to use the transposition trick with one instrument to create the second, or use the same instrument from a different library and hoped they matched in stage position and room sound.

BWW’s approach eliminates this time consuming action.

From a writing/production perspective, it’s not just that you have multiple players per woodwind family, it’s that you have totally different players within each woodwind family. As you play though each family (flutes, oboes, clarinet, bassoon) you hear how different one player sounds from another on the same instrument! And for me, this is a good thing because if you’re doing a piece with one just one flute, for example, you can now “audition” to see which player “performs” the part the best for overall sound and for blending with whatever string and brass libraries you’re now using.

Thus, BWW offers a decided writing/production advantage that’s worth your consideration.

There are three flutes allowing for an expanded section, plus piccolo.

There two oboes plus English horn.

There are two clarinets, three clarinets recorded in unison, but no bass clarinet.

There are two independent bassoons, but no contrabassoon.

Therefore, to complete the BWW woodwind section, a bass clarinet (usually doubled by Clarinet 2) and contrabassoon (usually doubled by Bassoon 2) are needed. My understanding is that these two instruments are being recorded in September 2012. Meanwhile, if you have the full version of Kontakt, you’ll find a lite version of a bass clarinet and contrabassoon in the Factory Library.

That said, in terms of orchestral writing, what’s been recorded is more than adequate for most writing situations. Woodwind sections do expand to woods in 3s (Wagner, John Williams) and 4s (Mahler). If extras are needed, one can use the transpose trick (for oboe, clarinet or bassoon), reinsert a BWW instrument for the third part, or use an instrument from another library.

I should point out that many of the woodwind combinations outlined in Professional Orchestration 2B, Orchestrating the Melody With the Woodwind and Brass Sections, are totally doable with BWW.

  4. OscarRomelPR says:


    Long live PAZ!


  5. rsb67 says:

    I can’t thank you enough. you have the best libries I´ve ever dreamed of

    THANKS!!!!!!!  :-D

  6. kivsters says:

    Estimated time on Rapidshare links?You are amazing as always Zion!

  7. apuhjee says:

    This is a PAZ release?  Is it any different from the TEAM MAGNETRiXX release?  Please forgive me – I’m a tad old school – we’re talking like been around since the Radium days… I guess I’m more accustomed to groups that perform complex functions (aka: walking decompiled assembly for weeks on end…) releasing software… With all the sample kiddiez these days, I guess we’ll see more and more “supplier” branded releases.  Don’t get me wrong – I’m not trying to belittle what you do – I know you put in the hours in order to keep this site functioning and relevant.

  8. apuhjee says:

    Well damn … so you’re saying that MAGNETRiXX downloaded it from this site and re-posted it with their name?  That’s pretty shady bro.  Really shady.  They shouldn’t be able to get away with crap like that.  Right?

  9. kivsters says:

    ZioN, when will rapidshare links be up? Thanks!

    • ZiON says:


      soon bru don’t worry as always PAZ is always free and help poor people.

      have some tech problems on my servers that’s why i can’t do some jobs.

  10. carramba says:


    My 2 cents about this: First, when it comes to samples & lib’s I dont think it’s very important who make the release.

    But when it is cracked stuff it’s important, coz if I see R2R, AiR, Xdb, then I know what quality to xpect when I DL & install.

    Second, it seem a bit weird to call one uploader or team shady for what they do. Coz truth be told they (and we DL’s) ALL do shady stuff.

    Peace  8-)

  11. jordihotmail says:

    same as kivster kisses…!


  12. apuhjee says:

    @ZiON –

    But let’s assume for the moment that my observation is simply wrong … for some reason or another I’m mistaken … shouldn’t you be PISSED OFF AS ALL HELL???  I mean … here you are … getting your big start in releasing audiowarez and there is another group taking credit for YOUR release???   I mean … funk that!  But if that IS the case, why aren’t the other blogs distributing the “PAZ” release?

  13. Serge says:


  14. carramba says:

    I don’t understand how you are thinking? The only ones who have reason to be “pissed as hell” about anything being shared & copied on internet are copyright owners & ppl who fight for the old copyright laws. Surely you don’t think that UL & release teams have some copyright on stuff they share on warez sites?

  15. jordihotmail says:

    :cry:   ZION…..I CANNOT FIND THE WORDS….. THAAAAAANKS….!!!!! If you come to Barcelona anytime tell us…!!!!


  16. matt667 says:

    thx for this great library guys!like with la scoring strings: the multi wallpapers are unfortunately missing, maybe there is a possibility to upload them?

  17. apuhjee says:

    @carramba –

    No .. you aren’t right.  But I can see from you lack of articles before your nouns that English is not your first language… so maybe you don’t understand the concepts of “sarcasm” and what a “code of conduct” among the genuine release groups is.  This has nothing to due with copyright.  It has everything to do with “doing right.”  Get it?  Probably not.

    • ZiON says:


      Clam down Man, keep peace.

      This was posted First by Me, and we both me and Team MAGNETRiXX was having it, so i posted it first in the morning, and some people saw it here, you can check the hour of the post, and compare it with team post.

      So no need to do such !,,,, ok

      And more are coming Albion, and others, if i manage to clean them will be here.

  18. carramba says:

    @apuhjeeYou’re right, english is not my first language, which means I’m part of the majority in the world. Why not write what you mean clear from the start & make it easy for everybody on open forum to understand? Now I see what you say, but I still don’t agree with you. If ppl are very concerned about following some rules or invented morals maybe doing this shady stuff is not the best venue? And again, from my POV as a DL, this issue of who is first is not important & I still think it sound silly if ppl sharing warez (copies) get hurt feelings if their copies are copied. But it’s just my opinion & we don’t have to agree. It still is interesting to learn about other views, no? Peace everybody 8-)

  26. padlee says:

    Yo, i get that error too. Using Kontakt 5.1 by R2R, the UNLOCKED FIXED one, so everything else working fine. Maybe when you put it in rar it got corrupt somehow, could you please share that nki only, please? the one that works for you. Thanks in advance! and thanks for the release, too!

  27. padlee says:


    You gotta move the content from the “articulation_performer” folder to C / Program Files / Common Files / Native Instruments / Kontakt 5 / Pictures. It’ll be fixed.

  28. jeamph says:

  32. attla78 says:

    Hi Zion, please can you share the first beacause some samples seems missing……when i load it kontakt doesn’t find Double, triple toungues, legato samples etc……

  33. Jcjohnson says:

    Hey guys, I new here and I don’t know the password to unlock the folder. Will someone please enlighten me?

  34. IntroNinja says:

    Zion ur Killing me with these collections Good job and thanks

  35. sayhey1983 says:

    Doe anyone know where to put the “articulation_performer” folder on a Mac? Right now I have it in Macintosh HD/Library/Application Support/Native Instruments/Kontakt 5/pictures (this works for “the arc” btw)…. The Multi loads perfectly but no graphics. Even if it doesn’t work, still an awesome library!

  36. sayhey1983 says:

    Here is where they go for anyone else having trouble on a Mac: User/Documents/Native Instruments/Kontakt 5/pictures (but you can’t just place the folder in there, you have to empty out the contents of the folder into “pictures” or it won’t work. This was my mistake….

  37. xavid says:

    Hello everybody!

    Does anyone know, if this great library is really protected with watermark technology? I asked
    to the people of OT and they don’t let me now exactly with a, “yes, it’s watermark protected”, in his website there is no trace about this…

    I am working on a project for a customer who wants to share my future mp3 master containing sounds from BWW, shared to his video presentation…Imagine his face if someday somebody calls him saying, “ey man, this library is protected and …I don’t want to know the end..

    Sorry for my English, but I would like to know if the BWW you are showing in this page, it’s totally clean of watermark (very hard mission) or just runs like I guess I am doing now…it works perfect, no mistakes all the patches….but with a watermark waiting for a master to show his teeth?

    Obviously I don’t know exactly what kind of information that protection has, owner’s info, IP’s info? but…people who are using right now the library…we know to what we are exposed? Help…


  38. xavid says:

    Thank you so much Zion!

  39. xavid says:


    After re-reading all messages I assume, in theory, magnetixx files (61) is a “copy” of
    your creation? Don’t get me wrong…it’s just already I downloaded the files and re-download them again…I did not know about that! if not so, I continue downloading, I want to be sure it’s yours…

    I had discover this site today and I am very impressed, great job!

  41. Nightsung says:

    Despite its size, I never thought this library would become one of my favorite to use, haha. I like this library – took a while to download, but it’s worth the time! Thanks yet again for another great release! I wish you the best of luck,

    ~Caeruleus Draconem

  42. tobeamulet says:

    Hi,could u please reupload the extabit link please?thank u~~~

  43. newoarrab says:

    Muchas gracias Sion, de verdad que agradezco tu esfuerzo, es una gran biblioteca pero tengo problema con el parche de Piccolo, nose puede cargar, y por favor en los multis, el articulation performes le faltan los skins, por favor digame como se puede solucionar
    Gracias de antemano Maestro…

  44. IntroNinja says:

    Hey @Zion, i finally open this library but can’t batch-resave because of an error…SEE HERE:
    Normally i can troubleshoot any kontakt problem but i believe this file is corrupted!!! Can you please resend me a fresh Piccolo_Flute_a_Double_Tongue.nki

    Just a heads up everything extracted without error and i tested every instruments(except the Multis)and this one is the only problem.
    Thank you

  45. pu says:

    I’m sure I already posted a “thank you” for this upload –
    but it is so epic and incredibly useful to me that I’ll just keep trying and trying till I get through.

    Gorgeous work here, really great thanks for the rapidshare links!
    May you live long and prosper!

  46. IcKz says:

    uloaded 5gb files, off

  47. IcKz says:

    Hahaha, too many:P 5gb were less :x10:

    • ZeNDA says:

      hahahaha yes

      you, have downloaded?

      • IcKz says:

        Nope not yet. I’m not sure about this library. I’m an eastwest user, I bought their stuff in the past but I was not so happy for some small things, now I’ve read positive comments about orchestral tools and I wanted test their strings library, then probably I’ll try woodwinds and well then I’ll have to make a choice ’cause both r too expensive for my pockets XD

        • ZeNDA says:

          You’re right there are many libraries that cost a lot to buy
          Besides that if you buy and then you do not like good that you already have a problem thrown money
          Have good luck with the choice :)

  48. jaimez says:
