audio_ Output: Surachai Modular Kit
*update* - I'd like to thank everyone who has purchased the sample pack so far! Hope you're enjoying it! Drop me a line if you have questions or comments!
Earlier this year, I was commissioned to produce a pack of samples that would've been sold for about $40 a download. I would've been compensated with $1250 (that's about 12 Euros, 2 Pounds or 5 billion Yen) but after many months of spotty communication and general shady activity, I decided to step away and release the pack through Trash_Audio for a quarter of the price.
The samples were recorded at 24 Bit, 44,100 Khz, have a root in A and are sequenced at 120 BPM. I used only my modular synthesizer and analog delays in the production of the sample pack. I'm not proud of many of the melodic folders because of their obvious annoying riffs (which include transposed Slayer solos) though apparently these are what people are drawn to when purchasing a sample kit. Whenever I use a kit I always search for the one shot section but seeing as I was catering to an Acid/Garageband demographic, I had to include many folders I generally delete off the bat. With my preferences indulged, I included one shots, chromatic folders, REX loops and other folders. Originally these samples were to be excluded which I find particularly strange and extremely limiting. Hopefully someone finds a use for some of that melodic mess! The process took a couple weeks of refining from following their vague instructions.
Samples are arranged into the following folders: Arpeggiators, Bass, Drum One Shots, FX, Hi Hats Loops, Kick Loops, Leads, Mixed Beats, Pads, Percussion Elements, Rex Loops, Single Note Synths, Snare Loops, Synth Trails. Honestly, I have never seen sample packs with Snare Loops or Kick Loops. These files are essentially separated multitracks from a 2 bar drum sequence and in my opinion, a really strange inclusion. Then again, I've never used Acid or Garageband as a primary DAW, so it probably makes sense to someone.
To sum it up: for 10 bucks you get:
907 files, 592 Mbs of modular synthesizer samples.
Recorded at 24 Bit, 44,100 Khz, AIF Format
