These vibes sound just like my Musser M75! I like your mallet selection on these samples. Sounds great! I have been a professional vibe man for quite a few years, in addition to piano and accordion. I really love the sound of the drums as well. A most convincing sampled instrument performance!
And the drums!! You must tell us, Sean, about the drums!! Is this the mysterious DSSoundware unreleased drum kits?
And lastly, congrats, Donnie, on lovely demos of the London strings. I heard those today at Big Fish audio and am mighty mighty impressed with those strings. And 4 instruments, 9 Gigs at $500, can it get better?
Now spill the beans about those drums, Sean! The vibes are your killer library but the drums, I can\'t indentify.
Thanks for the kind words Marty. The marimba is from the same library. The bass marimba is an instrument Donnie did (not in the Marimba/Vibes library). The drums . . . hmmmmm . . . well . . . just a little general midi kit I threw togeter. As such it is only right hand samples in the demo. Using both hands they are better. Future product? Mmmmmaybe . . .
Sean, Is this part played using a drum kit midi controller?
Even though I can hear the limitations of the samples (since they are only right handed, as you say), the part played sounds like someone doing it rather live and not step-recorded. Did you use a kit and play it live?
