ALGO/OPERATOR | the sound of science
Algorithms, operators and opaque sub-menus programming : as being math, FM synthesis is not very friendly, but also a very rewarding world for creating new sounds, and a still rather unexplored territory when it comes to drum synthesis.
With this new WaveShaper kit, don't worry about spending hours programming a snare-ish FM sound, this sample pack is ready to use and generously gathers 250 percussive one shot samples created with FM synths.
Don't expect much to find the usual analogue-like drums samples, it's all about designing abstract micro sounds, pure tones, sharp transients or percussion simulacra with a twist. Some well-known FM sounds from the 80s are also included to make this kit more than complete.
This kit was created by using mainly a Yamaha TX81-Z rackmount synth from 1987 (and also a pinch of more modern gear like an Alesis Bitrman or a Waldorf Blofeld), with 12bit converters and a quite gritty sound.
Samples are categorized (kicks, snares, hats, cymbals, percs & fx, ...) for more convenience.
- Pro kit 5.90$ (250 samples, 48kHz-24-bit stereo Wav files).
- Pro kit + Kontakt version 6.90$ (250 samples, 48kHz-24-bit stereo Wav files + NKI kit).
- Free kit (55 samples, 44,1kHz-16-bit mono Wav files).
