Topic: A Splash of Cool Vibes

    A Splash of Cool Vibes

    This is a vibes demo using Cool Vibes.

    Splash (for vibes, bass and drums)

    I wanted to import Cool Vibes in Kontakt 2 so I could have the vibes bass and drums all in the same reverb setting, but I could not get Cool Vibes to work right in K2. So I used Cool Vibes in Gigastudio (2.5), Larry Seyer bass and drums (from Stormdrum) in K2 and put everything through an external reverb unit.

    I based this demo on another sequence I posted a few weeks ago for piano trio.

    Trio Excursion

    They're nearly the same, but I think the sequence lends itself more to vibes than piano.

    Please check it out and tell me your thoughts.

    The sounds are nice ...... but sorry to say ... your bass player isn't holding a groove.
    The timing is glitchy and it needs to be held together with some physicality.

    Composition is really cool.

    Thanks for checking it out.

    Yes. My bass line is a three note wonder! It certainly needs some work. I'm using it just to keep the ostinato going. For a few measures it walks, and then it goes back to the punchy ostinato. The meter is 10/8 and I figure it would be easier to grasp with an ostinato (as primitive as it is).
