Wierbonski Drums Sample Pack | 1970s Vintage Concert Tom Kit

Wierbonski Drum Sample Pack

This is my first original sample pack I’m posting for sale and it is actually of the kit you see in this picture. It is a 1970s Pearl type kit that was customized by me. The snare drum is a 13″ steel Pork Pie. The little tom is not in the sample pack, but all the other drums are. The cymbals also differ slightly as to what is pictured here. Included in the pack are as follows:

  • Three kick sounds – one inside miked, another miked about 6 inches from the front, and a third that is a mixture of the two
  • Five snare sounds – two different tunings both muffled and unmuffled, there’s also a rimshot hit making five sounds total
  • Four hi hat sounds – open, closed, pedal and choke
  • Three crash sounds – big, small, china
  • Two ride sounds – body and bell
  • Nine tom sounds – since they are concert toms I wanted to get the full range of sounds available from this kit so you get all three toms with inside miking, top outside miking and mixed miking.
  • Ableton drum rack and project file
  • All samples are 16 bit 44,100khz professionally miked in my own rehearsal space

This is an incredibly realistic sounding kit and perfect for rock, garage rock, indie, experimental music. It’s very open and natural sounding and very powerful. Only $4.99!

This is a royalty free sample pack and may be used to create music in any way. Music created with the Wierbonski drum pack may be distributed freely and commercially, but the sample pack or any part of it may not be redistributed as a sample pack or library by any other party than demonicsweaters.com ©2015 demonicsweaters.com & Justin Wierbonski

Strawberry Fields Forever? No, but here’s a free Mellotron plugin

Tapeotronic_3

Tapeotronic is a mellotron tape keyboard emulation.
There’s 16 patches of flute, string and choirs sounds and MIDI learn / automation.

Back a few years ago I made an album called Manasota under my pseudonym Justin Robert. For much of that album I used a Mellotron VST plugin. I’ve always loved the sound of these.

The one that I used is no longer available, but I found this one that seems just as good!

“The Mellotron is an electro-mechanical, polyphonic tape replay keyboard originally developed and built in Birmingham, England, in 1963. It evolved from a similar instrument, the Chamberlin, but could be mass-produced more effectively. The instrument works by pulling a section of magnetic tape across a head. Different portions of the tape can be played to access different sounds.

The original models were designed to be used in the home, and contained a variety of sounds, including automatic accompaniments. The bandleader Eric Robinson and television personality David Nixon were heavily involved in the instrument’s original publicity. A number of other celebrities such as Princess Margaret were early adopters.

The Mellotron became more popular after the Beatles used it on several tracks. It was subsequently adopted by the Moody Blues, Genesis and King Crimson, and became a notable instrument in progressive rock. Later models such as the M400, the best selling model, dispensed with the accompaniments and some sound selection controls in order to be used by touring musicians. The instrument became less popular in the 1980s due to the introduction of polyphonic synthesizers and samplers, despite a number of high profile uses from Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark and XTC.”  Wikipedia

Free Chiptune VST | Fantastic SID inspired free plugin for Windows!

I’ve tried several different 8 bit / chiptune / SID style plugins and I have to say that Dream64 by OdoSynths is one of the nicest ones I’ve tried. Dream64 is a wavetable synthesizer with a built in step sequencer and LFOs. The sound of it is quite great. Very much like old SID sounds.

I tested it out on Ableton Live and EnergyXT and it works great on both. My only gripe with it is the GUI interface is a bit too large in my opinion since the bottom of the plugin doesn’t fit on 1366×768 my screen. Still not much of a problem since I can access most of the controls.

 

It comes loaded with a ton of great presets. Many great drum sounds, fat basses, and very cool sounding lead patches. Definitely an essential plugin to have.
