Last summer I tried my hand at sampling for the first time, and I was met with mixed results regarding the recording, but I learned alot doing it. I recorded 3 trombones in one of the concert halls here at school -university of north texas. Like I said, I learned alot from my mistakes, but the samples came out quite usable and really do blend well with other ensembles.
Thomas was kind enough to program them for me, despite his busy schedule (I mean, if yer gunna try to sample brass, who better to ask?) And Tobias is being most generous hosting these files for me. They\'ve both worked hard and given so much of their time on other projects which they made freely available to us all, and this wouldn\'t be here either if not for them.
I broke up the patches into multiple .rar files, as the overall file size is fairly large (138mb). They are divided up by articulation, and within each style there is usually a muted version as well as the open one. Use the mod wheel for the long tones patches to crescendo/decresc through the layers, etc. The \"Crazy Stuff\" rar file is actually just the unprogrammed wave files of the bones playing various staccs, sfz\'s and general wackiness. They never got programmed, but there are quite a few useful things in there. Everything else is in .gig format.
You can DL them via Tob here:
Again, these are far from SAM quality, but hey -they\'re free!
