looking for interesting sample libraries - favorites?

Post by oisin » Sun Sep 15, 2019 4:03 pm

especially would love to get some well-recorded percussion (non electronic / not necessarily "ethnic").

also out of the ordinary acoustic instrument sounds. i have Komplete so all the basic orchestral / "studio" stuff is covered. but there must be better stuff out there.

favorites?

Wave Alchemy stuff is excellent... :tu:

In particular Drumvolution for all your drum and percussion needs. Bassynth also looks very promising.

Hope this helps.

For pay samples, Goldbaby, Wave Alchemy, and Samples from Mars.

Wave Alchemy has a couple of Drum Tools libraries that will probably give you enough stuff to last forever.

Edit... hmm... I think most of the libraries from the above are electronic.

I have personally grown to loath the “cinematic drums” thing. ...just editorializing...

yeah thats the thing id like to find an acoustic percussion library thats not "cinematic drums" or cheesy "ethnic percussion" .. (or drumset / electronics / etc).

as a percussionist i know there are alot of sound possibilites that havent been exploited yet.

the search continues. .

Spitfire is my favorite.

They have percussion that’s more cinematic in nature but their acoustic samples are some of the best I’ve ever heard.

They even have some freebies with their own software for playback called LABS.
