Les Productions Zvon has announced it has set free the Quad Zamp sample player instrument plug-in for Windows.
To beme more precise, the 4 audio outs version is now freeware. It previously was “soundware”, meaning that it was a bonus with any purchase of our sample sets. The single audio out that was freeware is discontinued. I have decided this because we no longer sell our sample sets directly from our website, at least for now, due to the new EU VAT regulations.
Quad Zamp is a one-shot/drum VSTi sample player, consisting of four ‘Zamp’ style multi wav players, 12 wavplayers in total. Each wav player is assigned to a certain key, from C2 to B2. This can be customized. Also includes samples from the IYTTIW mofified trumpet and the Prepared Rhodes with ready to use kits.
It was made with SynthEdit and was “Download of the Month” in December 2005 Electronic Musician magazine.
Quad Zamp for Windows (VST) is available to download as freeware.

Les Zvon Productions has announced the release of the Free Memory Collection Christmas 2014 Pack, a collection of 193 samples taken from a Christmas movie.
The samples in this collection are taken from 1 Public Domain Christmas movie from 1940. The pack contains 192 samples for a size 75.2 MB. They include voice/spoken word/dialogs, sfx/foley and music.
These samples are all new, they are NOT part of the other Memory Collection Packs.
If you like this pack, check out my other Memory Collection Packs that can be bought on Sampleism too. Some have a theme like the Memory Collection 03 – Horror Movies and the Memory Collection 04 – Christmas / Winter Holidays for instance. These other packs are not free but they’re very affordable and all have free downloadable demos.
All Memory Collection Packs samples are from PD movies, documentaries, TV shows and TV ads. And they’re 40% off until January 5th, 2015!
The pack is a free download at Sampleism.

Les Productions Zvon has released Kids Kits, a sample library featuring a collection of recordings of children.
The samples in this set are taken from a recording I made with two young children, a little girl (3 years old) and a little boy (5 years old). They were very happy to sing, talk and make funny noises in the microphone.
I selected 136 unique one-shot samples from this session and further split some of the longer ones so there are 259 samples in total. These also include 13 interesting noise samples.
This set is available in the following formats and all are included in a single purchase: Caustic 2, wave, sfz, Native Instruments Kontakt 3.5 and Battery 3.
The Kids Kits sample pack costs $2.99 USD. A free demo of 41 samples is available to download.

Les Productions Zvon has released Sci-Fi and Aliens, the 5th Memory Collection series sample pack, featuring a collection of samples from public domain movies.
1 750 samples for a size of 1.44 GB. The samples in this collection are taken from 10 Public Domain science fiction movies. Please note that the samples are not mapped in any way or in any specific sampler format.
The samples are from 10 Public Domain science fiction movies from the 1930s to the 1970s. So they cover different styles of soundtracks. I was surprised by the quality of the soundtracks in general. They featured early electronic music with a creative mix of various types of sound sources. Just listening
to the samples is fun and it also is a lesson in the history and evolution of sound design in movies (IMHO).
The sample library is available as donationware with a minimum donation of $20 USD. A bundle of Memory Collection packs costs $50 USD.

Les Productions Zvon has released Marching Band Horn, a sound library for Native Instruments Kontakt 4.
The Marching Band Horn instrument for Native Instruments Kontakt.
The exact name of this instrument is unknown. It uses a French horn mouthpiece and the range is a little lower than a trumpet and a little higher than a trombone. To make most of the instruments in this set Les Productions Zvon played single notes and resynthesized them to create multi-samples. In all cases the resulting tone is still very brassy and close to the natural one.
Some samples are time stretched so this library is not meant to emulate the real instrument. It’s a simple library without velocity layers or alternate samples but it is great for adding a horn flavor and also providing a wider range of uses, a good way to add brassy sounds to your compositions at a very low cost. The sounds range from smooth and mellow to hard hitting and growling, from staccatos and stabs to sustained pads.
In the full version, the programs are in 2 main folders, “01 Natural” and “02 Transformed”. The programs in the first folder play the samples as they are except for the added Kontakt reverb. The second folder contains instruments made with Kontakt’s tone or time machines engines. The “01 Natural” folder contains 38 single instruments, 6 combis and 6 multis. The “02 Transformed” folder contains 13 single instruments and 7 multis. Two scripts are included.
Marching Band Horn for Kontakt (full version required) is available to purchase for $2.49 USD. A Caustic 2 (Android) version is also available.
