    Best Tubular Bells?

    I\'m trying to find a great sample of tubular bells for my Roland sampler. I wondered if anyone up here knows of any great sample disks out there that feature this instrument...possibly in AKAI format, which the Roland will read...

    thanks..

    Have you looked at Advanced Orchestra? They have a good set of chimes, and it\'s in akai format as well....

    I have Advanced Orchestra\'s chimes which I found disappointing because a number of the notes sound either too clangy or \"dead.\" On the other hand I also have DS Soundware\'s (Ultimate Percussion) chimes and they are a work of art, with loud and soft layers, damped and undamped, and with different hammers as well. I don\'t know if they\'ve put their percussion package out in a non-Giga format but these chimes are outrageously good. - Doug

    Doug...wow thanks for the glowing review! I am glad to hear that you are enjoying the sounds.

    Tom...I thought you had gigasampler? Anyway we will have a AKAI \"Symphonic Percussion\" coming out very soon.

    Actually I use a Roland 5080 for sample playback. I am saving dollars for the Gigasampler

    The Roland reads AKAI disks....but with the harp sample from XSample for instance, even with
    128 megs I can\'t load the whole thing. Since I can\'t afford 25 Roland samples like Zimmerman, I\'m heading for the Gigasampler, and am hoping I am making the right decision....

    Thanks guys for the suggestions...
