The concept: often when using one-shot samples, I would like to have them play higher or lower without changing their duration and/or having them slow down or speed up.
To achieve this, I resynthesized one-shot samples to make them chromatic and playable across the keyboard. I created the original samples used for resynthesis with various drum softsynths. On the acoustic side, there are 7 cymbals, 2 hi-hats and 1 cowbell (courtesy of Manytone).
The result: sounds that can be used as tuned or semi-tuned percussions and others (like the cymbals) where low and high pitched sounds have the same speed and length. Good for chromatic percussion (metallic and others), keyboard like instruments and sound FX. All programs have 4 samples per octave and most cover at least 6 octaves.
The complete list of programs is HERE
16 bits, 44.1 kHz
- wav, 2500 samples
- Kontakt 3 or better (full version, not the free player)
- soundfont (Mobile version only)
101 basic programs (sounds), 205 MB
Note that the 2 packages below ALSO INCLUDE the smaller soundfont mobile version that is on the Sounds for iOS, BUT NOT the Caustic version.
Wav + sfz formats: $ 9.99 US
Kontakt 3 and sfz formats + wav: $ 15.99
Kontakt 3 version has 211 instruments. The first 101 instruments correspond to the programs of the original version. The other 110 make use of Kontakt 3 features, mainly combining the samples in various creative ways: layers, velocity layers, cycle groups and random groups.
