This guy created his own drum and piano samples - along with video.
I want video playback in the next generation of sample players and libs!
that may be just about the cleverest, or at least most entertaining use of technology I've witnessed in a long time!
Anyone remember Todd Rundgren's album Acapella?
Fun stuff Jon!

Thanks for sharing this Jon!
I have a request to the next generation of orchestral library developers:
Please film each sampled musician in proper seating position at multiple camera angles in front of a well-lit blue screen. That way, after we've sequenced our samples, we can composite the full video performance with the ability to do cuts, mixes and wipes.
Oh yes, and have the performers wear tuxedos and black evening gowns. Or something just as stylish.
"How many mic positions does your library have?"
"Three. Near, Stage and Far."
"And how many camera positions?"
"Do you have any libs with the musicians in pink pajamas?"
Fantastic idea! Though they could have the musicians wear bluescreen jumpsuits so you could dress them however you'd like. Imagine the conductor wearing a tutu, the concertmaster in a panda costume...Originally Posted by JonFairhurst

Way back when I attended a performance by the San Francisco Youth Symphony after pulling an all-nighter on a load-in. In the middle of some Mozart the conductor turned into an 8-foot tall, pink, bunny rabbit. I watched the rabbit conduct for several minutes before I noticed the rest of the orchestra were turning into fluffy white bunnies in tuxes. Then I fell asleep.
