For the first version of Droneland, Simon Stockhausen used 14 drone samples from his SoundPack Droneland and also made 9 new samples derived from electronic sources and field recordings. In 2017 this library was updated/extended to 42 presets, adding another 29 wav samples and 22 presets.
Many of these sounds are huge and deep tonal drones with a cinematic touch, but there are also some more experimental textures, atonal timbres and haunting tones. All patches have the modulation wheel assigned, many also use aftertouch or velocity as modulation source.
There are now 42 presets using 52 samples - 1.37 GB of audio samples (wav) produced in 48 kHz/24-bit stereo. As the samples are not encrypted, they can be used in other sample players, granular synthesizers or directly in your DAW.
License holders of the first version of Droneland can update their license for € 8 EUR.
