Join us for peek inside the sampling archives of Berklee's Dr. Richard Boulanger, and the Open Path Music Custom Sample Library, where we focus on some sampled acoustic instruments from around the world. Featuring expressive, playable racks and patches powered by a wide variety of traditional and exotic wind, stringed and tuned percussion instruments, Recoustics will inject some truly special sounds into your music and scoring projects. These aren't your typical bread-and-butter pop snoozers. They each have a unique and organic quality of their own that you won't find in mainstream commercial libraries. That's why we selected them, warts and all.
Inside, you'll find tuned percussion from the likes of a beautifully sampled Vibraphone, a variety of Asian Gongs, Toy Pianos, and more. There's even a bowed Glockenspiel! Toot away on some wind instruments from Asian Flutes to American horns and more. On the string front, you can pluck away at some uniquely-sampled acoustic guitars, Koto, Hammered Dulcimer and more. Be sure not to miss the awesomely expressive Upright Bass patches, complete with multiple velocity layers, slides and harmonics!
The material is designed to be mixed and matched for designing an endless number of your own instruments. They are sorted, pitched, mapped and ready for action. Use the included Combinators as a jumping off point for your own tweaking, mix and match the dry NN-XT's for unheard-of combinations of your own, and dig deep into the 260+MB of sample material for anything you can dream up. Want to pair up a Kalimba with a Flugelhorn, backed by a Tibetan Prayer Bowl? Go to town!
