    So, Who makes it?!

    O.K. fellas,

    Who makes drum library with the happeningest set of brush samples for swing? Especially the snare swish .... you know that "stirring the soup" movement, for that "shhhhhh tchp" effect.

    Unfortunately, Larry Seyer says no brushes in his new library at this point.

    I'm going to get it (slurrrp), but I need some brushes to augment/balance it.

    Thanx!

    Brush Artistry from Big Fish Audio is the best I've found. Git it at GC for $89, has REX loops so if you've got RMX...

    BTW, that's "pea sssoup, pea sssoup..."

    The Garritan Jazz & Big Band library coming out soon will have brush stirs. Both left and right hand.

    Thanx, Soundsmith!

    Tha "pea sssoup" at BigFish didn't "taste" too bad.

    My oversight, however, was to omit that I wanted the brushes in GIGA format.

    Oops ....

    Purrrfect Drums has a nice Brushes component:

    http://www.studiocat.com/purrrfect_d...ct%20drums.htm

    REALLY cheap, too... Only $99!
    Some experts learn more and more about less and less, until at last they know everything there is about nothing at all.

    I don't know how good it is but www.wizoosounds.com has a downloadable jazz brush kit in Giga format for $10.39.

    Hope this doesn't seem too spammy, but I'm particularly happy with how the brushes turned out on my new library...

    ns_kit7full has *very* extensive brush kits. You get plenty of swooshes (we call them "crazy sweeps" a la Clayton Cameron) and sweeps. It's due for release early May, but you can check out the brushes pre-demo...

    http://www.naturalstudio.co.uk/demos...t7_brushes.mp3

    For more information on the library, check out the naturalstudio message board.

    Cheers,

    Douglas.

    edit: PS - I should also add that there isn't just one brush kit. Many of the drums (and two full sets of toms, including the rock and bop kit) are played with brushes. As well as various swooshes and sweeps there are brush muted hits, rim-shots, etc. Come to think of it - the brush kit is more extensive than the stick kit!

    I've been threatening to buy a snare drum and brushes. Swishes don't have to be that accurate. I'm thinking that it might, in fact, be easier to play them then to force pre-made swishes fit.

    Definitely.
