Postby Shy; Mon Jun 10, 2013 2:52 pm Wide-Hat - a high quality, wide stereo hi-hat sample pack with no phase issues

This is a sample pack with very high quality recordings of my very high quality hi-hat (Paiste 2002 14" Medium).

Here's a quick demo.

It's unique. I made sure to give it a very wide, pleasant sounding stereo image while keeping the sound tight, with no weird differences between the channels, and making sure that I'll be able to get a good sound either from the left channel alone, the right channel alone, or with the two channels mixed into a narrowed stereo image or mono. If you're truly familiar with recording, you know that this is a very big deal. Other than that, the overall sound is proper and has a natural frequency response and no weird stuff.

It's compact. Don't expect a large amount of samples or any fancy stuff. It's not amazingly versatile, but it is very usable. I carefully selected the samples for my own usage. It's quick and simple to make your own patch for this in various available samplers. I don't intend to make sample packs of other cymbals any time soon, in case you wonder.

Enjoy.

No prob, I hope it will be useful. Yes, this stuff takes a -lot- of time, and it's far from fun to work on :).

Cool, Dean, enjoy.

By the way, a note to users: it sounds much like what a drummer hears, since it was recorded from a close distance. To simulate what an audience from further away would hear, you could simply eq the frequencies with a (not too steep) high-pass filter or band-pass filter, to have more high frequencies and less "body", which may fit a mix better.
