Plugin Boutique has introduced Big Fish Audio’s new sample library SMACK 2: Claps, Snaps & Stomps, an immersive collection of body percussion that offers an impressive level of detail.
Capturing the same magic of the first library, Big Fish Audio also set out to improve on it in several ways with this sequel.
For starters, we recorded all of the body percussion with three different customizable mic positions: close, stereo, and room. Next, we deepened the sample set to make each performance as realistic as possible by recording eleven round robins and up to seven velocity layers. Lastly, to add even more audio flavor, we captured the performances in small, medium, and large-sized rooms.
To make SMACK 2 even more versatile, we explored various new clapping techniques and unique stomping surfaces. For example, we sampled a single person stomping on a guitar case with a tambourine on top, and also a small group stomping on plastic packing materials.
For total control over your sound, we created over seventy articulation patches for immediate access to each round robin sample on the keyboard.
