Master Solo Woodwinds

The Ultimate Woodwind Sample Library, with Legato That, Can Fool Even a Trained Ear
46.2GB of Astounding Quality Content - Multiple Legato Layers at Multiple Dynamics, Play any Trill up to Seven Notes Apart and Even Control the Level of True Mechanical Noise Heard from the Instruments.

After much recording, production, tireless testing, re-testing and finally refining the end result, we are very happy to bring you the complete Master Solo Woodwinds bundle, which contains meticulously sampled solo flute, piccolo, oboe, clarinet and bassoon sampled Kontakt instruments (will work in Kontakt 4 and all higher versions - but not the free Kontakt "player").

These instruments will take anything you throw at them - with a legato mode that can adapt to slow and extremely fast playing in a single phrase with no extra effort/keyswitching on your part, simply open and play! 

INTRODUCTION TO ANGEL STRINGS

Music composition and production is constantly evolving, and the tools used to create music need to evolve along with this. The concept for this library involved capturing colours from a string orchestra which have not yet been recorded for any sample library, and place them at your fingertips, ready to compose and perform with.

Angel Strings Vol.1 Includes textural elements, morphing into/out from atonality, risers/divebombs ideal for building tension (for example in trailer music), different styles of spiccato/staccato, marcato to soft attacks with sustains, fast tempo-locked tremolo for powerful driving string hooks and more...

The techniques and articulations available in Angel Strings Vol.1 were cleverly recorded with the entire string orchestra in the same room all at once, in a way that seamlessly blends from the bottom of the range (double basses) to the highest violin notes. You can play the entire orchestra with each articulation across a single keyboard with a single NKI, making this library perfect for anything from merely sketching your ideas out on a full keyboard range - to easily executing unique parts for your final compositions.

PercX

All stages of creating PercX were thoroughly musical. We left behind the traditional tiresome method of recording samples. Every single hit in PercX was played as part of a piece of music, and contains real musical intent.

All instruments in are grouped into "kits". You can play instruments as standard multi-sampled instruments; you may choose to combine, with some in sample mode and some as loops; or you may choose to compose your entire arrangement within PercX. The beauty is that there are many ways to work with it, and they are all creativity-focused.

Every single "hit" in PercX is an entirely independent, complete sample from attack to tail. Consequently, even in loop mode, PercX neither needs nor uses any time-stretching compensation to perfectly lock to your tempos.

The Fusion of Worlds...

Never before have the true essence and complexity of modular synthesis, and the very best of organic recordings/samples been fused together so mightily.

It’s very difficult to get a software synth to sound like something real and natural. You want a synth sound in your music, but you want it to sound like something physical, not like a computer program trying to play music.

Hexeract does exactly this. You have before you a powerful software synthesizer, multiplied with the added dimension of organic recording, leading to sonic possibilities not even remotely paralleled by any software or hardware currently available.

Create sounds with Hexeract in seconds which, even if manually replicable (often not), could potentially take hours of manual sound design and editing.

ProjectSAM-logo-alpha-ch.png

In 2001, composers Maarten Spruijt, Vincent Beijer and Marco Deegenaars teamed up to found ProjectSAM. Not fully satisfied with the orchestral samples available at the time, they set out to record their own, focusing on three main things:

  1. an ambient, multi-mic setup in a concert hall environment,

  2. the right set of articulations, emphasizing on note lengths in-between a sustain and a staccato, to be able to build thematic lines,

  3. instrumental effects that cannot simply be recreated using individual samples.

Imperfect Samples specialises in imperfect sample libraries with performance sounds, recorded intelligently. Geared for the professional producer, imperfect sample libraries are useful for conveying a feeling of reality into a track. 

The human brain is sensitive to the differences between an organic recording vs. a quantized sequenced track. This is a common problem with sequenced acoustic music. Many perfect commercial sample libraries can often sound midi-like, due to their perfect performance. 

When an imperfect sample library, is sequenced, the result is a hyper-realistic organic recording. For example, listen to this sequenced demonstration: 

04FazioliConcert_GrandExtreme.jpg

The Ebony Concert Grand (Extreme) contains up to 127 velocity layers, 5 mic perspectives, imperfectly and perfectly sampled instruments, true staccato, true crotchet, picked strings, and FX, giving this library over 70,000 unique samples. Provided via super-fast download, this instrument is essentially 10 high-resolution grand pianos in one. 

Containing over 160GB of data with 24-bit audio fidelity, the raw versatility and dynamics of this piano library has to be heard to be believed.

An original Schimmel Braunschweig upright piano was painstakingly recorded to create this beautiful instrument. As with all Imperfect Samples instruments, the emphasis has been placed on achieving a hyper-real and convincing sampled instrument, with performance sounds. 

Sampled in multiple velocity layers, with release samples, and true staccato, the Schimmel Braunschweig Upright Piano was recorded at 24 bits, totalling over 5GB of data (Pro version contains 15GB). This sampled instrument's raw and distinctive sound is unlike any other piano sample library currently available.
