Real Cello Mayhem: Free Cello Kontakt Library

Free cello samples

Download this free cello Kontakt library by Regulus Sound Productions. Real Cello Mayhem is an inspirational, yet free Kontakt library for music producers. Create atmospheric, beautiful, and energetic sounds with this simple cello, yet intriguing library. While it may seem that this library is “only pizzicato”, there are a lot of possibilities once you begin turning knobs.

Real Cello Mayhem was born out of a joint effort by cellist Caleb Vaughn-Jones and Ted. Four different recordings sample patches (Solo Dry, Dry Stereo, Drop It Low, 6 Cello) to give music creators a variety of sounds to work with. The range is C2-C#5. However, it is set to play C0-C#3 on a MIDI controller.

Only works with the full version of Kontakt 6 and up. Click here for installation instructions.

Free cello Kontakt library: Audio Samples

4 Different sounds to choose from

free cello Kontakt library

Solo Dry

The first patch is one cello playing pizzicato (plucking) without any reverb, compression, or EQ.

Dry Stereo

Dry stereo is a pair of cello pizzicato panned hard left and right.

Drop It Low

‘Drop It Low Cello’ as I like to call it is one cello pizzicato that has been run through an effects processor and dropped an octave. It is a funky sounding thing, but can work in the right context.

6 Cello

This patch is 6 different cello recordings of pizzicato meant to create an ensemble effect. Try adding reverb to this patch for a richer sound.

    I’m not receing any emails, I don’t know if I just have to wait a little more or if it actually didn’t/isn’t going to send me.

      Hi Andrew, I have added you manually. You have should received an email with the download info. Let me know if you do NOT received the sample library.

      All the best,

    In the area to input one’s name and email there’s a box that says “ERROR for site owner:
    Invalid domain for site key”. After inputting info it asks to “Please check the CAPTCHA.” but there is no CAPTCHA. I have tried several times with different browsers (and no ad blocker). This occurs for both Cello Mayhem and the free bundle. I would really like to try the plugin out as it sounds pretty useful but it seems I cannot. Can you help please?

    On the download page for the Real Cello mayhem
    “Confirm you’re not a robot” When I type in the letters that confirm that I am not a robot it just say that you have entered the wrong letter even if i’m 100% certain that I did not. I have tried 10 or more time

    Hope you can help me

  5. Kevin Rowan

    Just curious, your offereing for free, so why wouldn’t you make it for the free kontakt instead of the paid version?

    1. Caleb Vaughn-Jones

      Hey Kevin,

      Good question! I eventually want to make Kontakt 6 player libraries, however it can costs thousands of dollars to license a library with Kontakt. So, in short, I hope to make these available for the free Kontakt 6 Player.

    Hello again Peter,

    I found the problem. On the email confirmation page the link was outdated. You try that link now or check your email to retrieve the free download.

    Thank you for bringing this to my attention.



  7. Caleb Vaughn-Jones

    Hello Peter,

    I have checked all of the links and they all work me. One possible problem could be that you may have a pop up blocker on your browser that is blocking the automatic download. The download buttons are all set to download automatically to your computer system.

    If the problem persists, please email me at caleb@regulussoundintl.com

    All the best,

    First, I want to thank you for this amazing cello Kontakt library/instrument – Your work is impressive and appreciated!

    Secondly, I receive a 404 error message for the Free Downloads link. I particularly am interested in your music production videos regarding panning and reverb and hope they are still available.

    Thank you once again, and I wish you a wonderful 2020 ahead!

    1. Caleb Vaughn-Jones

      Hi Shannon,

      Thank you for the feedback. I am planning to re-upload the video tutorial within the next few weeks. As soon as the new page is created, I will let you know. All the best!
