Our Mission

“Creating Inspiring Tools for Modern Composers and Music Producers”

We are crafting inspiring, high-quality sample collections in Kontakt format, focusing on film and video game scoring. We believe that sampling is an art form: our goal is to create sonically rich, detailed and characteristic instruments like (or sometimes unlike than) the original sound sources. We carefully select these sound sources while we also set up custom analog recording paths and rare combinations of effect chains to create unique, playable instruments. Unconventional recording techniques and sound design are as important parts of the modern music production as melodies and orchestration – so we are focusing on moods and characters as well as the sound sources themselves.

Our Background

karanyisounds.com is a sample developer company which was founded by award-winning composer, music producer Dani Karanyi in 2018. Over the last 17 years he produced electronic music albums as well as film, animation, video game scores and TV advertisements. As a pianist, he was always passionate about exploring how to bring life to the digital world of music production and seeking new techniques of sound manipulation. Teamed up with Los Angeles-based composers and other sound designers around Europe, he started to sample his favorite synthesizers and release them as Kontakt instruments with a simple-to-use, intuitive interface. We keep developing new inspiring instruments and expanding our repertoire to other sound sources too.
