Hello everyone I am almost through recording my orchestral percussion samples and I am about to start mapping all of them. One question (for me this doesnt\' really matter). Would you, as composers and arranger, rather have accesory intruments such as tamb\'s, trinagles, castanets, etc. that will all be on one .gig file velocity switched OR mapped out next to each other such as C1 triangle p, C#1 triangle mf, D1 triangle f, etc. or like this:
Alan Able 6\" triangle single hits (p,mf,f) C1
Alan Able 6\" triangle rolls (p,mf,f)C#1
Grover 6\" trinagle single hits (p,mf,f)D1
Grover 6\" triangle rolls (p,mf,f)D#1
Grover 9\" triangle single hits (p,mf,f)E1
To me the second way seems easier but I just wanted to get everyone\'s opinion to see.
I\'ll let you guys know as soon as I\'m finished and I\'ll put a demo up ASAP.
I’m not sure why you would use velocity. A ‘triangle single’ vs a ‘triangle roll’ has nothing to do with velocity. A dimension controlled by mod wheel would make a lot more sense to me, with each instrument type on a different key.
When you play a real percussion instrument, you are constantly striking different velocities/dynamics. The best way to try to recreate a realistic performance would be to play a sound that has multiple velocity switching samples that represent the different dynamics. To have to switch dynamics with the dimmensions on the mod wheel will never allow you to achieve realism in the performance. If Bill is suggesting switching from a single hit to a trem hit via dimmensions, I absolutely agree with that.
If you need any help with your gig files, I\'d be happy to help you. I\'m a pro, been doing this stuff for a long time so you\'d be in good hands. I\'m really excited about this project. Let me know. email@example.com
Yes I\'m also very interested in these
sample library.......one more specific question: Do U know the Drumsamples
Hans Zimmer (filmcomposer f.e. BACKDRAFT)
used (and still using) in his movies ?
They sound like fat Toms or something like that. I\'m desperately looking for such Samples. The format doesn\'t matter !! firstname.lastname@example.org
For me the 2nd way works best because i decide how the triangle should be played in my music.
It is easier to play d2 for p triangle hit instead of finding the right velcity on e.g. c2. In this case you can also manipulate the volume of a single hit via velocity. I like the velocity thing only on pitched perc. instr. like timpani, xylophon etc.
