I\'m thinking of getting Percussive Adventures and I am looking for some opinions from people who already own it. What range of tempos does it cover, what\'s the documentation like and most importantly do you recommend it?
You have a lot of \"filmish\" percussion beats and sfx as I would call them. All beats are named after famous, so you have an idea how they will sound.
When you found the right full bed (full = with all elements) from a full bed preview gig you can load the bed gig itself, which then splits up into different beat layouts and seperate hits and sfx. There\'s LOTS of non-looped material you can get from the beats. Most beats have one tempo, some have alternatives. It depends on the style of the beat what tempo it has got, but they range from about 40 to 180 BPM I think, in different time signatures.
Apart from the beats, there are also ambient beds (some pretty scary ones) and sound effects (for examples listen to the Spy Game score, they use them alot).
The library really grows on you. You find out more and more material you can use as you get to know it.
Oh, and I\'ve got the Giga version, but it doesn\'t really use Gigas extra programming features. It feels like an AKAI convert, except for the long filenames (!) and mod wheel filtering they sometimes use. So you could get the AKAI. I won\'t buy the Audio though.
I just have the audio version and altough I love it, I was allways wondering do you get more samples with AKAI/GIG version?
Do you have all separate hit samples from all the performances?...in audio version you get only selected hits from every performance..
Does it make any difference in the conversion process from Akai to Giga to have the 1000 series or the 5/6000 series Akai format. Thinking of getting Percuss. Adven. but not sure which Akai format would be better.
I have been thinking about purchasing this library for awhile, but havent been sure what version to get. The giga version is I think 399.00, as the akai is 199.99. Can anyone comment on any specific advantages/disadvantages using the giga or akai native version. Or will the akai version give me the same features? King...have you had a chance to work with the akai version?
It should show up Tuesday. I ordered it on Saturday so I have a few days.
I believe the Akai version is near identical to the giga version. if not identical. It can\'t be much more data since its the same amount of CDs. The description of the giga version and akai version is a little different but not enough to make me think its truely different. Probably just to confuse people so that they buy the giga cversion
