Nordfreqs Drums of Asgard

Drums of Asgard

Drums of Asgard features a collection of 800 percussion sounds straight from the halls of Gladsheim.

All the nordic gods are represented here: Thor, Delling, Heimdall, Mimir and more.

Together they give you the full spectrum of percussion sounds needed to build the perfect groove. From kicks to snares, hihats and everything in between, with punch and solid quality through the whole range.

The drums are sorted after type, and named to let you navigate easily. We never liked numbering systems, and we figured you didn’t either.

Drums of Asgard features

  • 800 24-bit wav files.
  • Includes 123 Claps, 123 Hihats, 123 Kicks, 123 Percussion, 123 Percussion FX, 123 Snare, 123 Toms.

Nordfreqs Chords of the fjords

Chords of the fjords

Chords from the fjords is a sample library featuring 200 pristine chords collected in the breathtaking Fells.

Some as musical as Bragi, some as brutal as Thor and others as beautiful as Heimdall, but all useful in their own way.

So, why make a collection of chords you ask? Why not just deliver a set of midi files and some presets for your plugin collection? Well, that would be useful too, but you can get that in many places.

We wanted to make a solid collection with the gear we love, and process them the way we like, to give your productions a new set of flavors. Sometimes people forget how much fun it is to load up a raw file in a sampler and just tweak away, and we wanted to bring a collection to the market that would inspire to do just that.

The chords are sorted after style, and labelled with the key of the chord for your convenience. They are even named to let you navigate easily. We never liked numbering systems, and we figured you didn’t either.

Chords from the fjords features

  • 200 24-bit wav files.
  • Gear used: Roland SH-101, Roland MKS-50, Korg MS-20, Moog Voyager, DSI/Linn Tempest, Doepfer Dark Energy, Clavia Nordlead 2, Eventide H7600, Tascam Portastudio, Studer PR99 MKII tape machine, Frostwave Resonator, SSL-style compressors, Rockman Stereo Chorus, Korg SD-200 analog delay.
