Some of you might know me from my sample development with Manytone music. Lately I put together a little project sampling various cowbells. (as we all know, the cowbell is to rock music as the clave is to latin--the backbone to the groove)
I've sampled 6 total cowbells with distinct tones. They all have many velocity layers, and an adjustable blend between the close mic and a more ambient mic, allowing you to have some control over the tone. They're all sampled with both tip and shaft stick articulations. All the samples are 24-bit, 48khz in Kontakt format, with a script to control the mic blend and stick articulations.
I'm looking for a volunteer or two to test these out--anyone interested?
