Would like to find some Keith Emerson samples (esp. his unique B3 sound e.g. from Trilogy and Brain Salad days), maybe some Wakeman and Genesis (guitar & kbd) as well, anything else would also be interesting. This would have to run under Giga. Looked on the net for quite a while, but didn\'t find much except that Akai S-series and Ensoniq SCD-4 did sell Emerson quite a while ago. Am willing to put some effort into sample editing if req\'d, but want to avoid sampling from audio CD [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
A sampler is the wrong tool for this purpose, for the reasons already mentioned. Try B4 by Native Instruments for the Organs, and perhaps Pro-53 (also from NI) as a basic analog synth source. What you want to do is tantamount to saying, \"I want a bicycle, but it has to be a horse.\"
Well, there is a CD-ROM out there \"somewhere\" called \"Keith Emerson- Dangerous Synths and Organs\" which is suppose to have lots of Emo\'s sounds on it. I have seen it on the net before... but it\'s been some time ago. Get on a search engine & search for \"Dangerous Synths & Organs CD ROM\" and maybe you can find it. Any of ya\'ll ever heard of this CD ROM? (I think it was in Akai format) Gary [img]images/icons/cool.gif[/img]
For prog rock keyboards you\'d probably want to find some good Mellotron samples. There\'s several to choose from out there; the first that spring-reverb to mind is a disc called \"Mike Pinder\'s Mellotron\", I think... It was the guy from the Moody Blues, as I recall.
Another popular Genesis keyboard I think was the Pianet, I think it\'s called. I\'ve got sounds on my Roland JV1080 vintage card called \"Roxio Pianet\" I think that are very \"Carpet Crawlers\" sounding.. Check soundsonline.com for vintage keyboard CDRoms and you should find plenty, though I can\'t personally vouch for any of\'em.
for rickenbacker basss i use the kurzweil bass gallery. has all sort of basses from that era and even a few before! they sound great of course you would have to translate to giga if you did\'nt have a k2000-k2500.
i would like to know how to gte that organ sound from the \" yes\" album. [img]graemlins/tounge_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
