Karoryfer releases Emilyguitar & Growlybass free sample packs

Karoryfer Emilyguitar

Karoryfer has released two free open-source sample libraries.

Emilyguitar features an Epiphone Emily the Strange model strung with thick flatwound strings.

After a few bass libraries, we’ve gone for a guitar. There are a lot of guitar samples out there intended for lots of styles of music guitarists like, from Latin jazz to metalcore, but this library is for music guitarists really hate, from hip-hop to EDM.

It’s designed to be easy to use for producers who don’t necessarily know a lot about guitars and don’t need a whole lot of different articulations, control over left-hand position, note off groups etc. Instead of all that you get a fat, percussive sound that’s great for crisp rhythms.

Emilyguitar features

  • Samples of an Epiphone Emily the Strange guitar with flatwound strings.
  • A total of 323 24-bit 44.1 kHz WAV samples.
  • Notes sampled every minor third.
  • Four velocity layers and three round robins.
  • String release noises with four round robins.
  • Various percussive and fingering noises with five round robins.
  • Six different SFZ mappings – four for single notes and two for chords.
  • 98 MB download size.

Growlybass features the sounds of a sampled Squier Jazz bass guitar.

Karoryfer Growlybass

We’ve released several bass libraries already, but these samples were played by someone who is the complete opposite of our usual bass sample guy. She not only has very good hair, but also actually listens to music that has bassists playing basses.

These samples are not polite and have a ton of character. The strings get plucked hard and rattle against the frets. The bass (a Squier Jazz) is a classic design and the tuning is standard, so this is our best library for an archetypal bass guitar sound which could never be mistaken for anything else.

Growlybass features

  • Samples of a Squier Jazz bass guitar with roundwound strings.
  • A total of 310 24-bit 44.1 kHz WAV samples.
  • Notes sampled every minor third.
  • Sustained notes with four velocity layers and four round robins.
  • Staccato notes and string release noises with one velocity layer and five round robins.
  • Pick scrapes with four round robins.
  • Seven different SFZ mappings.
  • 159 MB download size.

Both libraries are free to download (SFZ mappings are included).

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.
  • Notes sampled every minor third.
  • Five velocity layers and three round robins for every note.
  • String release noises with four round robins.
  • Various percussive and fingering noises with five round robins.

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
