Loopmasters has launched Felix’s Machines – Robot Percussion, a sample library by Felix Thorn.
Felix’s Machines were initially conceived in an experiment aiming to facilitate live music by transforming sound into a three-dimensional visual show. As an ongoing project, the music-performing machines built by Felix do not intend to match human potential. Instead they exist to test the advantages of mechanical instruments alone.
Robot Percussion features mesmerising performances of hand built music monsters triggering a range of real drums, bells, chimes, motors and discarded objects controlled by a computer brain creating complex rhythms and intricate soundscapes.
Robot Percussion features
- 71 live percussion loops, 301 virtual & manipulated loops.
- 9 bass drum hits, 9 snare hits, 13 cymbal hits, 35 glockelspiel sounds, 133 percussion hits, 7 synth hits.
- 176 MIDI files.
- 376 REX2 files.
- 53 soft sampler patches for NNXT, Halion, SFZ, EXS24 and Kontakt.
The sample library costs £29.95 GBP. The loops and single-shot sample & sampler patches are available separately priced at £16.95 GBP each.
