CD 10 - MULTIMEDIA & MISCELLANEOUS
151 x BD = Bass drum
The first block among the
"miscellaneous instruments" are the 673 drum and percussion samples, that were
recorded partially on three different acoustic drum kits, are from drum computers and beat
boxes or were programmed with soft and hardware synthesizers . The first folder contains
about 150 different bass drum sounds. The sound example is from the "masterBEAT"
Software Drum Computer.
41 x CY = Cymbals
Here you find a small selection of Ride,
Crash and China Cymbals. Besides many new recordings like the Cymbal Sample in our
sound example you have here a bunch of sounds from the add-on-sets for the R8 drum
68 x HH = Hihats
This group contains samples of closed
and open Hihats and among them also some of the current drum machines like the X-base 09
and the Electribe R. By the way you can find the sounds of the analog cult beat boxes TR
808 and 909 and many others next to more than 1.000 other drum and percussion samples on
the SOUNDCLIPS 12.000 - Volume 1.
196 x PS = Percussion Samples
This section has about 200 percussion
samples starting with classical nature instruments like the Kalimba, popular clap sounds
and up to electronic percussion sounds, like the typical Kraftwerk sound in our example,
which was produced with an Electribe R.
125 x SN = Snare Drum
In the section of snare drums you find a
mix of acoustical, analog and electronic sounds, like the "high pitch" noise
snare in our sound example.
92 x TM = Toms
The sixth and last group of the drum and
percussion sounds are the toms. Among almost 100 samples you will find next to many
natural toms, partially enhanced with spacial effects, also the analog knockers and the
famous Simmons and E-Toms. In our sound example you can hear such a typical syn drum
sound with decreasing pitch.
41 x BS = Bass Samples
The next big area are 344 samples from
bass guitars in seven folders, starting with an acoustic bass, also called Upright Bass .
These giant instruments with their unique sound (see example) and incredible height.
47 x BS = Bass Samples
After the acoustic bass follow now five
E-Basses which sounds were played with different techniques like open, muted, picked or
thumb and slap. In those five or six fat strings of a bass is real power, depending
if a string is played open or muted, the string is pulled gently with your finger or
beaten up with hard thumb beats , the result are completely different and
independent sounds. When you design multisample setups you should therefore use at least
two different sounds per key group, depending on the touch, to keep them "alive"
The first candidate is the Alembic
Spoiler model. The sound sample shows you a typical slap sound.
82 x BS = Bass Samples
The next E-Bass is the Pedulla Pentabuzz
5-string fretless, also a 5-string Bass guitar with a bundlefree neck, which produces the
typical, singing "fretless sound".
53 x BS = Bass Samples
Also a 5-string is the Ken Smith
5-string model in this folder. The second sound sample, that sounds almost more like a
scratch and less like a Bass guitar, is a finger noise. A sound that is audible when the
guitarist changes hand positions. Those sounds that you recognize by the "0" in
the pitch sector (fifth digit of the file name) and see in every folder of this main
section, you should incorporate occasionally into your bass runs since it makes your
pieces come alive.
19 x BS = Bass Samples
The Warwick Thumb delivers a nice
"wiry" sound (example 1) in this folder. The same that we wrote in the previous
paragraph about the finger noises goes also for the so called dead notes (example 2). We
recommend this kind of typical background noise in the upper keyboard area, which is
usually not used with bass sounds. Assuming a respective play technique you can achieve a
very authentic sound by adding these noises to your bass lines.
62 x BS = Bass Samples
The Yamaha Patutucci 6-string model has
one more string and carries the name of a great bass player. The examples demonstrate each
an open and muted sound.
54 x GE = Guitar Elements
This folder contains a collection of
over 50 guitar licks and riffs for you. All elements are played at the tempo 130 bpm and
cut exactly to a length of two beats. You can find additional choices of similar elements
and other stiles on the CDs 2 to 5 of the 1st Volume of the SOUND CLIPS 12000.
7 x GL = Guitar Licks
The last and very small group of Guitar
sounds are some very unusual licks at tempo 100 bpm, that, like you can hear in the
example, suggests very little relation to a guitar sound.
51 x XI = Mallets
Here you find about 50 multisamples of
this kind starting with the Xylophone to the Vibraphone and Marimba to the
44 x SI = Saxophone Samples
Now comes another large block with 244
samples of different saxophone types that is broken down into six areas and starts with
these 44 multisamples of the Alto saxophone.
32 x SI = Saxophone Samples
Similar to the group of Bass guitar
samples, the different saxophone types were recorded with various play techniques. The
sound in the previous folder was an unmodulated sound but this example chosen for the
group of baritone saxophones is one with a slight Vibrato.
33 x SI = Saxophone Samples
These about 30 files are mixed up sounds
of different saxophone types which results in a kind of "Brass section" sound as
you can hear in our example.
55 x SI = Saxophone Samples
Here you have access to over 50 short
riffs without set tempo, thrills as well as overtone and growl effects of different
40 x SI = Saxophone Samples
Another type with its own very unique
sound is the soprano saxophone of which you will find 40 multisamples right here.
40 x SI = Saxophone Samples
The last one of course is the tenor
saxophone with also 40 multisamples. Like in all the other previous saxophone groups we
got here the so called short attacks. Those are, as you can see in our example, only
quickly blown sounds without holding the sound.
35 x SY = Synthesizer Stack Sounds
These 35 Syn Stax are sounds that are
produced from several keyboards at once and are then recorded stacked on top of each
other. Due to this layering technique you can of course achieve a very voluminous
sound if done properly. The sample in our example file is a mix of a roaring sound, a
touch of piano, a deep analog sound and a short loop of a synth choir.
70 x EW = Endless WAVs
The first group of these so called
"endless WAVs" are technically unique among the following over 440 multimedia
sounds and sound effects. With a technically very involved procedure that we will describe
only very shortly, elements from the nature sounds were resynthesized and brought to a
predefined file length of four seconds and then looped at the exact file ending and
beginning (**because of slower CPUs needs to much decoding time, you will find the
original WAV file instead of the mp3 sample!).
So much for the theory and practically
the results are completely new sounds. In the above mentioned example we have literally
"frozen" the sound of a church bell so that you can play this sound endlessly.
The second file is also a nice example
for a sound design and with the help of the most modern technology we made of the
naturally occurring noise of a harmless kitchen utensil a futuristic sound, that sounds
like the engine room atmo of a starship.
84 x EW = Endless WAVs
What you can do with naturally
occurring noises does also work for synthetic sound material. As done in the previous
folder, we have here also partially frozen a sound and "straightened it out",
only that these are wave forms of of various synthesizers. The result is also a sound
without attack and release phase, that can be repeated endlessly without you having to
define the loop points.
Since these sounds happen to have not a
length of four seconds, which is equal to two beats at the tempo of 120 bpm, you can tie
in these files repeatedly directly into your audio sequencer. As long as you don't change
the tempo, you will not hear the beginning of the individual beats (**because of slower CPUs needs to much decoding time, you
will find the original WAV file instead of the mp3 sample!).
137 x SX = Synthetical Sound
Here you have access to over 130 short
sound effects that are perfect so called Zap noises and switch effects. Typical
usage would be i.e. as a sound that occurs at the click of a button or when switching a
scene or a page in a video or as the background for a multimedia presentation.
151 x SX = Synthetical Sound
The same was applied to
"long". In the last folder of this library you will find over 150 sound
effects, that were programmed with numerous soft and hardware synthesizers , that are
mainly for the SciFi and Horror scene. If you use these as stand alone FX or i.e.
within intros or breaks, is up to your own imagination.
As a final word we want to make you
again aware of the SOUND CLIPS 12.000 - Volume I, the expanded Pro-Version of the
renowned and awarded Monsterpack. That's where you will find besides top sounds
& loops also i.e. hundreds of 1st-class samples of a classical orchestra, over 2,000
vocal samples or also over 1,500 additional sound effects and multimedia sounds from
Nature and Electronic as well as breathtaking 3-D sounds effects.
