New innovative Percussion multisample libraries for Kontakt.
I am glad to announce 2 new percussion instrument multisample libraries in native Kontakt format.
1. Frame Drum sample library.
2. Big bottle sample library.
These are the first Percussion sample libraries in the world to offer such powerful, innovative features with
non-compromising authentic detail and realism.
Some of the features are:
-A large amount of 24 bit samples (The Frame- over 3,000. Big Bottle- over 1,500)
-3 microphones setup.
-4 instrument versions: ambient stereo, close miked 1 & 2, layered.
-Up to 16 velocity switches.
-Separate left and right hand samples to each hit.
-Up to 5 takes of similar samples for delicate nuances.
-\'Let ring\' and muffle versions for each hit.
-Dynamic release samples.
-Numerous drum zones: center, off-center, edge, rim.
-Numerous \'beaters\' for each zone: palm, fingers, fingertips, etc.
-Includes every articulation and performance musically viable.
-Logical and highly playable key map (just like hands on the drum!)
-Amazing price tag: The frame: $22, Big Bottle: $11.
The key elements behind these libraries are completeness and expressive detail.
Finally, a library that is focused and organic.
...an instrument...not a sample.
Special offer: Buy \"The Frame\" now till July 1st, 2003 and receive \"Big Bottle\" free!
Re: New innovative Percussion multisample libraries for Kontakt.
Glad to see the plastic 5 gallon water bottle getting its due as a fine instrument, too.
I did a piece with dancers and percussionists once, where we did all sorts of great things with plastic water bottles. Grabbing them by the neck and banging them on the stage floor made an amazing sound in the performance space, as well as looking very cool when a line of six people were doing it in unison. The entire thing was choreographed with the dancers and percussionists, so there were a lot of places where the bottles were used as \"noisemaking choreography,\" visually and sonically very good stuff.
Another friend of mine cuts them off just above the top rib, then takes two cut bottles, turns the openings towards each other, and forces one inside the other. The \"ribs\" then lock the two halves together into a long two-headed plastic drum, similar to a dun-dun.
