Karoryfer releases Fashionbass for SFZ

Karoryfer Fashionbass

Karoryfer has released the Fashionbass open source bass sample library.

The notes are sampled every minor third with five velocity layers and three random round robins. There are also release samples (every minor third with four round robins) and percussive and fingering noises (five round robins). All together that makes 426 24-bit 44.1 kHz wav samples and a 301 MB download.

Four different SFZ mappings are included – the regular mapping which is the most realistic, one without release samples, a three-voice unison mapping with all the round robins playing at once, and a shifty five-voice unison mappings which uses higher samples pitched down to create the extra voices. The samples can be used with Plogue Sforzando and should also work with other SFZ-compatible samplers.

Fashionbass features

  • Samples of a Killer KB-Simmony bass guitar.
  • A total of 426 24-bit 44.1 kHz WAV samples.

  • String release noises with four round robins.
  • Various percussive and fingering noises with five round robins.
  • Four different SFZ mappings with varying degrees of realism.
  • 301 MB download size.

The library is available as a free download.

Karoryfer releases Zamenhof Stickmusterstuch Error Eins & Zwei

Karoryfer has released Zamenhof Stickmusterstuch Error Eins and Zamenhof Stickmusterstuch Error Zwei, two free sample libraries featuring glitch sounds.

Karoryfer Zamenhof Stickmusterstuch Error

With most of our libraries, the goal is to make something readily usable for making music that attractive young women might want to dance to or sing along to, but with these samples Ludwik Zamenhof made no such attempt.

Of course you could work some of these sounds into a perfectly mainstream track, but they’re aimed more at ambient, industrial and glitch music. These samples can be substituted for regular drum samples and used for making micro-beats, sci-fi sound effects, or in live electronic improvisation.

Zamenhof Stickmusterstuch Error features

  • 85 samples each.
  • Both one-shots and loops.
  • Samples from various digital sources processed using both software effects and Korg Kaoss Pad hardware.
  • Kontakt instrument, SFZ mapping and WAV files included.
  • Download size: 21 MB (Eins) / 53 MB (Zwei).

The libraries are a free download at Karoryfer

Karoryfer releases free Swagbass and Ergo EUB sample packs

Karoryfer has announced the release of the Swagbass bass guitar and the Ergo EUB electric upright bass, two free sample libraries.

Karoryfer Swagbass

Swaggbass

The world’s most swagged-out bass sample library. A bold claim, but D. Smolken didn’t just record, edit and map these samples – before he did any of that he also glued fake Louis Vuitton fabric to the bass.

Underneath that is an uncommon combination of modern active electronics, a long scale, and a 10-year-old set of dead flatwound strings. That makes this a great bass for hip-hop, pop and R&B, especially combined with low tuning – CGDA, an octave below cello, but the low C string is also sampled tuned down to A.

The notes are sampled every minor third across a range of four octaves with three velocity layers and four round robins. There are also string muting noises triggered on key release (sampled every minor third with three round robins) and various percussive noises (with a clearly excessive five round robins). All that adds up to 331 24-bit samples in wav format.

Karoryfer Ergo EUB

Ergo EUB

One huge solid stick of mahogany, four long and thick strings, a piezo pickup and not much more – that’s the Ergo electric upright bass we sampled. Though across its natural range the instrument is mainly a portable substitute for the acoustic double bass and the advantage of portability disappears when using samples, its simplicity and solid construction allow it to produce stable notes when tuned extremely low.

Both arco (bowed) and pizzicato (plucked) articulations are included. Arco has four velocity layers and two to four round robins per note, pizz has three velocity layers and three-four round robins. The lowest notes sampled for both are E an entire E below the E on a standard-tuned bass. Though it’s easy to create frequencies that low with synthesis or by slowing down or pitch-shifting higher-frequency samples, samples of strings or any other physical objects actually vibrating at notes this low are rare.

Sure, it can be used as a bass. The lowest notes are huge, and also useful for constructing enormous cinematic drones and thuds. They’re also great for running through all sorts of effects. The possibilities are enormous – we are offering this download less as an instrument to be used as is and more as source material for creating your own sounds.

The sample libraries are available to download at no charge.
