Detunized has announced the release of Passing Trains, a sample library for Ableton Live and WAV.

Detunized Passing Trains

Passing Trains is a new library that delivers impressive sounds of Express, Freight and Passenger trains that approach, pass, stop and pull out.

The recordings took place at several isolated spots in Saxon Switzerland near Dresden. This rock formation is cut by a river that formed a deep valley where the rails snake along.
Due to the complex reflection patterns caused by the rock walls some of the included takes have amazing long tails of up 3 minutes. These tails sound like otherworldly swells of approaching iron and steel. Passing Trains also contains some impressive close ups that were taken with lavaliers and contact microphones attached directly at the rail.

Passing Trains features

  • Organized into 6 sceneries: Approaches and Stops, Express Trains, Freight Trains, Local Trains, Locomotives, Close Miking.
  • Live Pack: compatible with Live 8/9, 58 Clips, 1 set, 1.4 GB.
  • Universal: 58 takes from 8 to 360 seconds, 1.4 GB.

The library is available for purchase for 12 EUR.
