Since no one still havent sampled percussion with a natural hall i decided to try to make my own. Me, a bunch of percussion, 2 mics and a laptop in a church. TJ made the programming and theres a few fast demos from TJ and Simon. Use them if you like them
Thanks a lot! These are great. I particularly like the power of the toms, and the prepared piano which includes scary \'Here the bad guy steps out of the closet\' kind of horror effects I am sure this will all be very useful, and they also sound more \'dirty\' and, dare I say real? than the professional libraries. Maybe due to the distance - I\'d love to see percussion recorded much further away than LOP and UOP for example...
cool) I will resample the toms tomorrow if the church is open.. i had alot of distortion on the hardest hits so i have to do it again but its not a big deal.. i was surprised it was so easy Btw, the mics are places 10-12 meters from the sorce.
OMG! How can I thank you guys enough?! I just closed my sequencer because I didn´t have the percussion samples I needed to finish a project I´m working on, and the deadline is tomorrow... You saved my day!
Sharing these samples was an incredibly noble thing to do. I´m in your debt!
Tob has done a great job here, and sampled some really nice percussion in a great ambient hall (a church to be exact), and the result is great. Make sure you don\'t miss up on these, especially since they are free! I think a lot of people are missing this kind of big sounding percussion, so enjoy Tob\'s G-town Percussion and stay tuned for more stuff coming your way.
For people wondering how the programming is layed out:
Toms: B3-C4 = Small tom (left/right hits - 8 velocities each)
E4-F4 = Large tom (left/right hits - 8 velocities each)
B2-C3 = Small tom (panned left)
E3-F3 = Large tom (panned right)
(mix these toms for a wider stereo image, usually heard in hollywood toms)
Hey, is anyone up to the challenge of some nicely recorded Congas and Bongos? Thomas, you did an excellent job with the one bongo, but I mean hi and low bongos and congas. Not so closely miced either. I\'d like to do some action sequences with ripping fast and powerful congas.
