I would like you to suggest what perc-instruments you would like sampled.
I will start my recording sessions (in the G-Town tradition) in start/middle of February. I have taken up Bruces advice and will buy a pair of Rode NT-1000 for the initial recordings. I would LOVE to sample any perc instrument that people could/would suggest in here - so please - name anything you would like. So far I have planned for these samples (all gonna be recorded in church with natural ambiences). All recordings will be done in aim of playability. Meaning several velocities, flams and fx. Also pitchings on pitchable drums like rototams, talking drums etc. Here goes the list so far:
High quality tablas
Didgeridoo (Both perc hits, blowings, stacblows)
Snares (velocity hits)
Sabres (sound of swooshes and clings)
Sledgehammer PC smash (AMD 200HZ)
Booksmashes (meaning I close a big dictionary very fast - which can actually give some rather nasty sounds)
And alot of surprises - as I will try to play on everything I can - from empty cola cans to throwing out tons of pingpong balls on the floor.
Let me hear what you would like.
Love - Chris
