My latest freebie is a multisampled brass ensemble sampler instrument. Made from various public domain samples, the ensemble consists of two tenor saxophones, two trumpets and a trombone. There are 13 notes sampled, from C3 to C5 at two velocity layers. There are two sets of samples – short and long notes.
Included in the download zip file are sampler programs for SFZ, Shortcircuit (VST sampler) and Beatmaker2 (iOS) formats.
To install the SFZ/Shortcircuit sampler presets, just extract the samples and the sampler programs into the same directory. For Beatmaker2, you will need to extract the archive to your Beatmaker2 user directory preserving the folder structure; i.e. the samples should end up in the “My Content/sampler/samples/brass ens/” directory.
The samples are 100% royalty-free for non-commercial and commercial use, but don’t redistribute them please. Enjoy!…
Update (2013-10-31) : Beatmaker 2 preset files fixed (the Beatmaker update to version 2.5 broke the sample paths causing a “file not found” error), you can download the updated bmk2 files here.
You can listen to a short audio demo below.
