ZapZorn Composer Tools

ZapZorn creates composing tools for and powered by Native Instruments Kontakt Player that will set you apart from all the other performers and composers who are still using the same old tools. Our brand focuses on unique, simple and useful concepts for the composing community.


George Gabriel

ZapZorn Composer Tools was created by composer George Gabriel (Baywatch, Disney's Kim Possible, Dora The Explorer). ZapZorn has sound design based custom tools that allow you to dial in a usable sound quickly and tweak it to make it your own. George has been professionally composing for years and part of his success is due to his sonic inventiveness. When he needed a sound that was unique, he created it himself. In that same spirit George set out to make a set of tools for real, working composers, sound designers, and artists that would not only allow them to combine sets of organic sounds quickly, but modify them to a unique perfection. He's succeeded with ZapZorn's first product, ZapZorn Elements, available now to use with the free Kontakt Player. You can contact ZapZorn and George via email at info@zapzorn.com



Mario Krušelj

Croatian native Mario Krušelj (known on the web as 'EvilDragon') is a brilliant, young, talented musician who also is one of the best Kontakt programmers out there. So good, that we hesitate to put his name up here (he is our not-so-secret weapon). His brushstrokes of genius can be seen over many products in the field (Evolution Series, Sonokinetic, Zero-G, Hollow Sun, Hideaway Studios, Tronsonic, Sample Katra...) and he is a constant force at making ZapZorn Composer Tools the best Kontakt instruments they can be. 



Marcelo Morales Cerda

Chilean native Marcelo Morales Cerda is multi-talented drummer / engineer / producer who is the editing chops behind ZapZorn Elements. Having run a studio in the past, Marcelo has countless hours in editing and producing. He was the main force in editing the thousands of samples in Elements. His editing chops have have helped make Elements the pristine, cinematic gem that it is.





Stephen Howell - Hollow Sun

UK Sampling legend Stephen Howell is no stranger to the world of sampling. He has been working with samplers since the late '70s with the very first Fairlight. Soon after, Stephen became a pivotal part of the Akai sampling dynasty with his involvement developing all of the classic Akai samplers we all knew and loved. Today, he has transferred that knowledge into the 21st century by creating Hollow Sun. Hollow Sun was one of the first content providers for Kontakt and has now risen to legendary status. Stephen, being a mentor to ZapZorn, graciously puts his signature on our products by creating the graphics and skins you see on each of our products.
