Spitfire releases Inder Goldfinger Percussion library for Kontakt

Spitfire has announced the release of the Inder Goldfinger percussion library for Kontakt.

Here's what they say:

Having the opportunity to meet someone like Inder Goldfinger is one of the great pleasures of living in the UK and working in the music industry here. Inder, a gentleman from Leeds, has helped shape our attitudes towards a genre that beleaguered the music industry in the late 20th century. It is through the perseverance of artists like Inder, that boundaries have been broken down, and constraints removed. Inder is largely known for being a founding member of Fun-Da-Mental, for having worked extensively with acts such as Ian Brown and for having worked within the Drum & Bass stable of LTJ Bukem and MC Conrad. Inder has helped to remind us all that if you live and work in the UK there is a large palette of sounds, experiences, spiritual influences, musical styles and theories to draw from. So…let's use them.

I was fortunate enough to meet Inder for the first time during an ill fated drum and bass experiment, and I was instantly struck by how open minded he was. He was continually willing to push against the outer edges of the envelope, to push against the constraint of expectations and his infectious personality clearly ran through the DNA of his playing. It is safe to say that his passion both inspires and motivates. We have tried many times to capture his essence for a sample library but we were never quite happy. After many months of recordings, we have finally achieved our goal and are honoured to introduce the world to Inder's talent and invention.

We have not set out to create a definitive 'world' collection here, we have simply aimed to capture Inder, his personality, his style of playing and the massive collection of instruments he uses as part of his armoury. We don't dare mention terms like 'world' or 'ethnic' within the concept of this library because it is neither, and for it to be constrained to such genres would be a massive failure of intention on our part. This is the heritage, experience and invention of one man living and working in the melting pot that is the United Kingdom. The library centres around Inder's primary instrument, the Tabla, but extends way beyond that in a comprehensive collection of drums, cymbals, and other instruments. Also featured in this library are Inder's extensive experiments using water to change the timbre, pitch and morph the sounds whilst playing (recorded with submerged water mics specially hired-in for the occasion).

Herein lies a comprehensive selection of percussion instruments sampled deeply (multiple articulations, beaters, with numerous dynamic layers, round robins and mic positions) with a beautiful selection of microphones (including the aforementioned hydrophones), via Neve mic pre's and Cranesong AD converters in our new, raw, honest and dry Kings X studio complex. This new studio space has an environment designed to provide recordings full of life and personality but without too much of a signature sound. The hope with our Producer Portfolio is to provide programmers, producers, songwriters and composers with inspiring building blocks from which you can create your own masterpieces. We have also endeavoured to include some phrases and loops to inspire you to put these instruments to their best use.
