And a more detailed explanation of how the brush stuff works, especially the adjustable-time stir articulations.

Later I'll explain how all this works "under the hood" for the Sfzformat site. The SFZ opcodes are not that complicated, recording the samples in a way that all this will work is a bit more mad-sciency.

Love the brush stuff. Intro is a bargain!

Thanks! And now, with less than two weeks left to go in the intro price, the plot thickens... the guy who did most of the sample editing, and who's also recorded the bobobo drums for our earlier Gogodze Phu Vol I freebie, is a rapper from Ghana. He used the drums in this track - not all the drums, but the 22 inch snare is layered with some stuff, the kick and hi-hats are from Unruly Drums during the intro and hook, there are some toms and crash in the last hook, too. Trappy hi-hats with round robins!

To make things even more interesting, around 2:02 there's a lyric about "my money is foreign" which is literally inspired by getting paid for editing these drums. More honest than most rappers rapping about their money. And the original version also had some synthy strings, so to make that more organic I made a quick alpha version of a sustain patch for some cello samples I'm working on, and that got used in here, too.

Last chance to get this kit at the $9 intro price before it goes up to $39 Monday morning.

And just for fun, I got friends who play children's music to use the 22" snare on a gig. Here's a snippet. Kids come running for the great taste of giant snare!

I'm also assembling a 16"x7" snare, which is more modestly oversized, but gotta shorten six more tension rods with a hacksaw and no vise. We'll see what I end up using that one for.
