Chromatic Hits

multi-sampled synthetic percussions

Product Overview

Often when using one-shot samples, I would like to have them play higher or lower without changing their duration and/or having them slow down or speed up. That gave me the idea for this set. It contains 101 sounds and over 2500 chromatically mapped samples (205 MB).

I resynthesized original one-shot samples to make them chromatic and playable across the keyboard. Resulting in many sounds that can be used as tuned or semi-tuned percussions and others (like the cymbals) where you have low and high pitched sounds of the same speed and lenght. Good for chromatic percussion (metallic and others), keyboard like instruments and sound FX.

All programs have 4 samples per octave and most cover at least 6 octaves. Available in wav, sfz and Native Instruments Kontakt 3 (or better, but not for the player) formats.

The Kontakt 3 version has 211 instruments, the first 101 instruments correspond to the original version. The other 110 make use of Kontakt 3 features combining the samples in various creative ways: layers, velocity layers, cycle groups and random groups.
