    Thumbs up A couple of tracks featuring our new sample libraries

    I forgot to post the update: Anti-drum and Rust are finally out!

    The libraries are a compilation of highly unconventional percussive instruments ranging from soda-cans to bowed saw, from boot stomps and scrapes, to water cooler drums, to stairwell railing percussion, monkey balls and baby toys. Together, Anti-Drum and Rust contain 38 unique instruments with a total of over 5,000 samples. Both collections are awesome if you're into way out of the ordinary percussion and there are a few quasi-melodic instruments in both libraries as well. They're both built specifically for Kontakt 2 or 3 right now, but we'll try to get ports to EXS, Sample Tank and Battery going fairly soon. We'll need people who can port and beta test pretty soon, but I'll post a thread for that when we're ready to get going with it.

    Tonehammer Anti-Drum contains 19 unconventional percussive instruments sampled in a variety of ways, in various locations. It is a celebration of every day objects and sounds transforming into new- and interesting musical instruments. The Anti-Drum instruments ranges from work boot stomps to water bottle thwacks, clicking baby toys, wall balls, ukulele- and guitar drums, to shock mount thunks and clapping ensembles. It contains just about 1GB and includes 2400 samples.

    Tonehammer Rust is a hymn to man-made metal. The library contains 18 different metallic “instruments” ranging from huge sounding Stairwell Railings to a tiny Soda Can Ensemble, from dumpster percussion to an old coal mine air shaft, from Bowed saw to Monkey balls and much more. It contains nearly 2700 samples, totaling over 1 GB.

    Here are a few of the demos again, to give you an idea of the kinds of sounds the libraries offer. A couple of them are new:

    Great demos...good luck with the release!

    (FWIW, rust demo 1 and 2 are reversed or mislabeled.)

    sounds good (well, somehow excluding the reverb ... ) - are they recorded wet or dry?

    thanks

    Both. Some of the instruments were recorded wet, some dry, in a whide variety of locations, including outdoors. For the most part, they're recorded exactly as you hear them in the demos.

    What format will be these in? Do you provide your own sample player? Will they work in Kontakt?

    24 bit?

    Re: A couple of tracks featuring our new sample libraries

    They'll be in Kontakt 2 format, which are also compatible with Kontakt 3. Currently, all of our libraries are programmed in Kontakt 2.

    In the next month or so, we'll also start supporting Battery 3 and Sample Tank 2. In the long run, we also hope to support EXS24, sfz and possibly Halion for some instruments. All the wav files are also accessible, so you could convert them to whatever format you like, if you've got the patience.

    All of the wav files in these libraries are 16bit/44kHz. Some of the libraries we'll be releasing next year will in 24bit/48kHz. In the long run, we'll be transitioning to that as our standard, once editing and processing all of the samples is faster and we can also count on most of people's computers being able to play them back smoothly at high polyphony.
