I made several threads about specific sample packs but I think it would be useful to keep all the links just in one place. There are trumpets, guitars, percussion instruments and will be more stuff soon, like glockenspiel, mandolin and some experimental stuff (out of kitchen devices).

Vowel Ensemble Choir Pack

The choir patch was developed by Mihai Sorohan together with Richard Osborn for Mu.Lab Multisampla and Selcuk Bor (from Symphony of Specters) for Kontakt.
Choir:
Citrina - soprano & alto
Jelena - alto
Roman & Dimitri (Timohi) - tenor
JonnyZed - tenor
Mihai - tenor & baritone
Gear used:
Microphone - AKG Perception 170
Preamp - Art Tube MP Project Series
Soundcard - M-Audio Audiophile 192

Full Choir "Dry" Patch for Kontakt: DOWNLOAD
Full Choir "Wet" Patch for Kontakt: DOWNLOAD

The Kontakt patch is "monolith" so you don't need to copy folders or keep track where are the files.
To run the patch you need a full license of Kontakt. In Kontakt Player (the free version of Kontakt) the patch will run just in demo mode (that means 30 minutes and then stop).


Mu.Lab Patch: DOWNLOAD
Mu.Lab session "Ave Maria Sound Alike" DOWNLOAD

How to install:
Get Mu.Lab (free version would do it just fine)
Unzip the zip file
Move the patch folder into the Mulab/User/Library/Mux folder

Acoustic Guitar Strums
Mono recorded Fender CD-60CE Nat major and minor chords, one strum and muted strums so you can make your own patterns. Samples at 44.1 KHz samplerate, 24 bit, mono.

Thanks for the generous offer.

Just wanted to add my thanks for sharing your work with us. The Choir pack is wonderful!
If you could ever get that group together for another sampling session, I've always wanted a similar library of be,bop,do,wop pop music samples. :)

Thanks everyone for the nice words. I do plan to make another choir pack with a bigger choir and a better place to record (a concert hall or a church). Maybe next choir pack will have also the do-woop-do-be-doo stuff.

Will be soon some SampleTank, Reason and Kontakt stuff. Also I finished to record a mandolin and a glockenspiel, I hope soon I'll have the time to edit and patch those.
Keep an eye on my blog where I put the stuff http://mihaisorohan.blogspot.com/.

Will the Vowel Ensemble Choir Pack for Kontakt work with Kontakt3 or is Kontakt4 required?

big thanx to Mihai for the Choir, very useful, IMO.

It's working fine here on Kontakt 3.5 (full version).

cheers

One more demo for choir:
Era Meets Bob Marley

The Kontakt patch is work of Selcuk Bor. He also wrote that:
A note about Kontakt users, since we did not buy a free player license you must have the full version of Kontakt 3.5+ to use this library.
It comes in a wet and a dry monolith file. We decided to keep it monolith for now for simplicity sake.
Installation is easier, download, load in Kontakt and enjoy.
For his good work you can at least go and "like" the Symphony of Specters" page on Facebook. http://www.facebook.com/pages/Symphony- ... 2223842450
That's our music/ sound FX/ voice-overs company.

Thanks so much for your extremely generous contributions! Those muted trumpet samples are gonna get me out of a tight spot with the soundtrack i'm working on!
Love the quality and tone. Any oud samples/loops in the works?

Oud ? Not from me.
I can sample just what I play for now, but there is a guy who makes tons of free stuff, better keep an eye on him:

Thanks for the link to the oud VST. Nice one! I did a search for something similar a couple months ago, found a couple, but nothing as nice as this.
Thanks again!
