Tonehammer Anti Drum Vol.1 KONTAKT DVDR-SUNiSO
Antidrum 1 contains 18 unconventional percussive instrument collections, sampled in a variety of exotic locations totaling nearly a gigabyte, with 2400 precision multi-samples. It is a celebration of every day objects and sounds transforming into strange and compelling new musical instruments.This library includes uniquely playable instruments ranging from heavy work boot stomps to water cooler impacts, clicking baby toys, red rubber playground balls, hand-slapped ukulele and guitar "drums", shock mount bass thumps, clapping ensembles, nail gun shots, shouts, drum circle strikes and so much more. Some instruments are recorded in ensemble, while others are captured solo. We recorded many of the sounds in our favorite hall, while others were recorded in the wild, out in real-world environments.

Alien Tube – This horrible little thing is a plastic tube with a sliding widget inside, recorded in a small bright hall.
Boot Stomps – heavy steel toed boots stomping on a hard tile floor, recorded in a large bright hall.
Clap Ensemble – 4 guys clapping in a small bright hall
Clap Solo – Close, dry hand and wrist claps and grabs programmed for fast, tight percussion parts.
Clicky Toy – Small plastic clicky, squeaky baby toy in a large bright hall.

AntiDrum 2 is a follow-up to our popular Anti-Drum I. This time we wanted to push the bar even further into the realm of abstract percussion and musical exploration. This library is the ideal creative toolbox for experimental sound and music design. The library contains 3866 samples and 71 different instrument patches that each represent a unique texture. The library contains a variety of instruments recorded in one of our signature halls, including boom whackers, PVC pipe percussion ensemble to flower vases, glasses, rainsticks, soda bottles. The library also contains a variety of even more unconventional instruments ranging from human beats through a cellphone (10 round robin and 10 velocity layers), stop watches and a compressive patch made from a severe food poisoning that we call: "the human trumpet".

Tonehammer Cylindrum KONTAKT DVDR-DYNAMiCS Tonehammer Cylindrum KONTAKT DVDR-DYNAMiCS
The Cylindrum is a massive tuned percussion instrument designed using the principle of open and closed air column resonance. The instrument was constructed by Gregg Stephens with the help some rather involved mathematics, plenty of elbow grease and quite a few bloody fingers. The end result is a massive 20-foot-long tuned percussion instrument with a pitch range spanning a full 4 octaves. Overall, it sounds like a strange organic synthesizer coupled with tuned tom toms. And with deeply nuanced dynamic velocity layering and extensive round-robin variation, this instrument is truly an experimental percussionist's dream come true.

Our Cylindrum library contains three separate variations of the instrument (dry small, dry fat and wet). The small set is made from a series of 1-inch diameter PVC water pipes played by tapping fingers over one end, with a microphone positioned at the far end. The fat version is made from a series of 4-inch ABS corrugated plastic tubes with an open-ended rubber port hole, played with a ping ping paddle. Both sets were recorded in a dry studio room, giving them a full, resonant and fat tonality perfect for arpeggiated melodies and driving bass lines. The wet version is built from 3-inch ABS corrugated plastic tubes with felt mallets on a a 3/8? heavy rubber cap, recorded in an ultra-wide stereo array in a lush glass and tile hall. This slightly more distant sound and closed port delivers a much more brutal transient impact perfect for dramatic scoring and layer with other traditional percussion.

4 Main Articulations

Dry Fat (10x rr, 6-7 velocities)
Dry Small (2x rr, 20+ velocities)
Dry Fat Mute (10x rr, 1 velocities)
Wet (10x rr, 6-7 velocities)

Tonehammer Clack KONTAKT Tonehammer Clack KONTAKT
The theme and purpose of Clack! is pretty simple. We wanted to capture as much sharp, bright, warm, tonal wooden impact percussion as your heart desires. We captured several bamboo poles, bamboo logs, a whole pile of claves, woodblocks, clappers, box drum, and other assorted wooden implements that epitomize the word "thwack." These elements are specifically ideal auxiliary elements for orchestral composition and epic film/tv/game soundtrack scoring. They also are vital elements in Latin music and hip hop, as well as very useful percussion building-blocks and raw source material for experimental music and IDM.

We recorded all of these sets up-close and 90% dry, in a medium-sized hardwood and masonry percussion studio, providing just the right amount of body and liveliness. All presets include a Release knob to allow you to dial in just the right amount of room you need. All instruments were captured with 10 round-robins per velocity layer, with an average of 6 velocity layers per note. The modwheel controls the tightness of room decay in all patches that don't use the modwheel for other purposes, such as cross-fading or swapping between layers. Any patch that has "mw" appended to the nki filename also uses the modwheel for a special function.

We also included 9 unique sets of ambient drones as a bonus. We created them entirely from the original Clack sample source material, using special sound design techniques. These multi-layered sound-scapes utilize the modhweel to allow you to sculpt and morph these ambiences very expressively. The rich flavors of these custom drones range from bright and orchestral, to choral, to thunderous, to quite dark and gritty.

5"x6' bamboo logs (23 articulations)
1"x7' small bamboo poles (6 articulations)/li>
2 sets of castanets (solo and unison)
Wooden trident clapper (single notes and sustaining rolls)
7 assorted pairs of claves (7 articulations)
Classic wooden popgun
Rattle impacts (4 different rattles/shakers)
Whaledrum "cajon" (4 articulations)
Semi-tuned woodblocks (6 articulations)
Misc mallet shaft & handle strikes (2 articulations)
Clack! includes a complete set of custom controls to dial in sounds like never before. By adjusting the attack, you can round out an articulation to a soft, swelling sound. Use the offset feature and cut into the sample removing the harsh transient altogether. Adjust the Release knob to cut the sample down to a mere fraction of a second. All articulations are velocity sensitive and you can use the Swell knob to further sculpt the volume. Each articulation has been tuned to it's dominant frequency and chromatically spread out across the keys allowing this library to serve as both percussion and melody. The stepping knob provides pitch-shifting of ±48 semitones with optional key-switching for ±12 semitones.

Our Tone / FX controls give you access to a number of effects to shape the sounds further. The 3-band EQ gives you ±18db of Low, Mid and High with a fully adjustable Mid Freq. sweep from 20Hz to 20kHz. Other effects include Lo-Fi with adjustable bit-depth and sampling frequency, Flanger, Rotator, Pro-53 Filter, Delay with tempo-synch, Convolution Reverb and a Stereo Modeller. The Uberpeggiator is another powerful feature included in most Percussion and FX patches. It's an advanced arpeggiator allowing control over tempo-synched rhythm timing, number of hits, swing, repeat, pitch, scale and a full 16-step velocity table.
HeadlessBuddha Clapless Buddha KONTAKT HeadlessBuddha Clapless Buddha KONTAKT
HeadlessBuddha Samples has announced Clapless Buddha, a free sample pack.

I’ve never found a cool claps sample library and have always had to record the clapping myself. I mean real hand claps. There’s plenty of drum machine claps sample libraries around. This was my main motivation to record these 65 one shot samples. I don’t like recording claps every time.

Do you always clap your hands the same way, with that perfect sound? I don’t. I suck at hand clapping and I screw the recordings every time. I needed this thing probably more than you do. Either way you can take it home for free.
Here’s the thing: these wrong claps may also find a place on your music like they sometimes do on mine. If you don’t want the "wrong” ones, there are quite a few perfect ones! It’s quite easy to make it sound like a crowd clapping or applauding, or use it like a drum machine, a clap ensemble, or whatever.

Yeah, it was recorded through tape, but it’s not as extreme as we usually do. This time we’ve left (most of) the processing to you.
Enough talk, have a listen!

EWQL Symhonic Orchestra Gold Play Edition (Uncracked) EWQL Symhonic Orchestra Gold Play Edition (Uncracked)
Recorded by 11-time Grammy nominated classical recording engineer Prof. Keith O. Johnson, the EASTWEST/QUANTUM LEAP SYMPHONIC ORCHESTRA is the most awarded orchestral collection ever, including winning Sound On Sound's Reader's Choice Award an unprecedented 3-times, and the first orchestral collection to be recorded in a "state of the art" concert hall where orchestras mainly perform.

To achieve the feel of a live concert hall performance, each instrument and section was recorded with three mic positions, close, stage (conductor‘s position) and hall. By selecting different mic positions, users can mix these sounds together to create any kind of natural ambience their project requires. This eliminates the need for artificial reverb.

The EASTWEST/QUANTUM LEAP SYMPHONIC ORCHESTRA eclipses all others with the highest level of fidelity and realism. Get that big "Hollywood Sound" film/tv/games directors and producers seek "out of the box", no other orchestral collection comes close or is as easy to use!
