    Sampling Blog

    I've started a new blog dedicated to sampling with Kontakt.
    I'll be uploading new instruments for free every week.
    Let me know what you think.

    Hello Brendan,
    Drinking Glasses and Tidepools is not just a great read, it is a way to follow a journey into what music is all about. Totally inspiring!

    How did you create the bass line for the final piece? Obviously it is pitch shifted down and the ADSR modified, but the instrument is probably the most modified of the group. I would think it was a modified bass guitar and would never guess it was a drinking glass!

    Again, really great job. I look forward to the next installment!

    Thanks all for the kind words. Of course, as soon as I started the blog I got swamped with other projects, but I'm going to do my best to keep releasing new instruments every week.
    The bass sounds are definitely the most modified. It took me three attempts to get the sound I was after. I was thinking of doing a post just on that sound. Basically I used the re-trigger script with a very fast rate to create an effect similar to what I talk about in my second post. This creates a new tone with glass overtones. I resampled a bunch of these and layered and filtered them. The goal was to make a bass sound that was still somewhat glasslike.
    Thanks again for the encouragement. Feel free to ask questions via the comments section for each post. I don't check these forums as often as I should.

    Wow! I love your blog and creativity! I've not got into sampling at all myself yet, but reading and listening to what you've done is very inspiring. Love the glasses song. I hope you will continue it!
