Does Alan need a ride home, I have an SUV. Anything I can do to help get this lib out sooner?
Hey kid, the library, which will include an extensive collection of prepared pianos, found object percussion, rare instruments and rare articulations for popular instruments, will most likely not be out until this fall, so I'm sure that's way too far off for your current project.
Project Sam's True Stirke has a small section of interesting found object percussion (including bowing if I remember) that might help you right now.
Yeah that's a little far off, but glad to know you're working on something. Yeah I have True Strike, it's got some cool stuff, but I'd really love a lib that is built around weird sounds. A deep one. One thing I'll say is that, it may not be popular, but I'd prefer these sounds be as dry as possible for this sort of lib.
For example, I wouldn't like EW's version of this style lib (my guess) as I'm not fan of the room they record in and they seem to track with room mics (yet I still like most of their products and own much of their catalog). But for sounds like this I'd like the sound closer to that of, say, Ethno 3 vs RA. Others may feel differently....
The one thing I ask for in your lib (if you're taking requests ) is long bowed metal scrapes that change in pitch, modulate. in the 1 to 10 second range. Mapped to the whole range of the keyboard.
I have some custom stuff I've made but it's not heavy enough to use for everything (I mean the metal is actually not weighty enough) to get that guttural sound I'm looking for. I want metal scrapes that sound almost disgusting when effected and pitched.
I want my horror stuff to be down right sick and twisted.
So that's my request.
I'm sure I'll dig your lib.............. thanks for the info.
