They have a pack of 30 meg really nice drum samples. Good hihats/cymbals.


(basil) #5

impressive
:yeah: :)


(BonusNinja) #6

Holy ninja! :yeah: :drummer: :guitar:


(LauriT) #7

Nice and informative list indeed…

You could add http://www.sf2midi.com which is the ultimate free soundfont site.

Also if you’re after some heavy metal oriented guitar and bass stuff then you should check out the sample section at http://www.metallurky.tk.


(escii) #8

if you are mising some vocals you might want to try www.vocalsamples.de


(samples) #9

I’m building an online collection of samples that I create. It’s at:

http://beatsandsamples.atspace.com


(dblue) #10

I think you should consider offering uncompressed .wav versions of your samples too, especially for the individual drum hits. The timbre on a lot of them - usually in the attack portion - is just kinda mashed up and dirty sounding to me. It would be great to have some nice, clean, crispy .wavs.
:D


(Nifflas) #11

Edit: Updated! http://nifflas.ni2.se/?page=Samples. Check out the Loads of Samples pack!


(splajn) #12

Check these out, there is lots of links to orchestral high quality stuff.

Respect :D


(JBL) #16

wow nice list… but it looks like some of the links arent working anymore…

bassment.net sends me to random-spam.com (LOL WTF)


(escii) #17

err, well date of the original post is post Feb 19 2004, 06:37 PM
and I suppose you know, that things do not last long in the internet.

Anyway…what´s so bad about recording own samples? Or try one of these
huge samplelibraries on cd or dvd or try looking here:
http://www.google.de/search?hl=de&clie…Suche&meta=
http://www.google.de/search?hl=de&clie…Suche&meta=
http://www.google.de/search?q=audio+sample…lient=firefox-a


(JBL) #18

Yeah, I knew that…

I wasn’t complaining…oh and, I make my own samples too… but I might try to find some stuff I couldn’t make… just to experiment…

thanks again for the list


(nagz) #19

i always loved Kiarchive for getting tons of high quality .XIs…

cheers :yeah:
