  6. MY LIST OF PERSONALLY RECOMMEDED FREE SAMPLE LIBRARIES THAT WORK IN FREE SAMPLE PLAYERS and FREE SOFT SYTNHS Finding free sample libraries is easy these days. Finding really high quality sample libraries is a lot more challenging. It commonly means sorting through a lot of -- I'll be kind -- less than great sample libraries. That's why I thought it would be helpful to the community to create a curated list of RECOMMEDED free sample libraries that play in a free sample players. That's right, everything sample library in this list is totally free -- no strings attached -- and plays in a totally free sample library player. I've only included KONTAKT sample libraries that work in the FREE KONTAKT Player. My list only includes libraries that I have used and find worthy of recommendation. Now, many of these libraries, while very good to excellent, still aren't at the same level as a high end, meticulously detailed and ingeniously scripted sample library. But that level of detail may not even matter for your purposes anyhow. Some of the piano libraries on this list are, IMO, as good as commercial (paid) sample libraries. Some have a charm that I find more important than detail. I invite others to do the same and post libraries that play in free sample players that you have used and can personally recommend. I will update this list from time to time and welcome suggestions for making it more convenient for people (I would have links for all of the Pianobook libraries, and will update it adding links in the future, but I was running out of time today and thought, since a couple of forum members had an interest in it, I would get it up ASAP. ⭐ =Highly recommended favorites. ⭐ ⭐ =My highest recommendation. RECOMMENDED FREE SOFT SYNTHS Vital ⭐⭐ VItal is a free spectral warping wavetable synth and it is superb. I like it better than most of my paid synths. If you use soft synths, this is a must have, a total no-brainer. There is a paid version for $25 USD with 250 presets and another version for $80 USD with more than 400 presets. All of them are well recommended by the community. But the free version works with third-party presets that you can find at the site's forum and all over the interwebs. Just stop right now and get this! https://vital.audio/ Surge XT ⭐⭐ While Vital is my absolute favorite free soft synth, and maybe my favorite soft synth period, Surge is my second favorite free soft synth. It is a hybrid synthesizer. Roger Linn uses it -- and you can get it for free. Why are you still reading this??? Just get it!!! https://surge-synthesizer.github.io/ Helm ⭐⭐ A great sounding virtual analog synth. https://tytel.org/helm/ Pendulate ⭐⭐ All things music related are subjective, but monosynth just sounds great to my ears and if you don't agree, you're clearly wrong. https://www.eventideaudio.com/plug-ins/pendulate/ Dexed FM Plugin Synth ⭐ A soft synth closely modeled on the Yamaha DX7. If you like the sound of the DX7, you'll like this. https://asb2m10.github.io/dexed/ RECOMMENDED FREE SAMPLE LIBRARIES PIANOS SonicCoture Hammersmith Free ⭐⭐ A beautiful grand piano sample library.

The sampler comes with a free piano sample library that is a high quality grand piano. FORMAT: DEVELOPER'S FREE PROPRIETARY PLAYER https://soundpaint.com/ Heavyocity Foundations Piano ⭐ ⭐ A beautiful, soft grand piano with great effects. A must have, IMO. I recommend downloading every free library in the series.

FORMAT: DECENT SAMPLER https://www.pianobook.co.uk/packs/mason-hamlin-model-a/ Isolation Piano - Tubes and Tape ⭐ ⭐ I use the KONTAKT version and I love it and consider it one of the best pianos on Pianobook, arguably the best. It’s a sampled Model O Steinway grand piano. FORMAT: DECENT SAMPLER https://www.pianobook.co.uk/packs/isolation-piano-tubes-tape/ Spring Piano by Christian Henson ⭐ An very nice intimate upright piano. FORMAT: DECENT SAMPLER https://www.pianobook.co.uk/packs/spring-piano/ Manthey Klaviano (PIANO) ⭐ This is a very nice sounding basic upright piano. It sounds like your average piano you’d see in a middle class home or at a school. It’s not a sophisticated sounding piano. I really like its humble character. FORMAT: DECENT SAMPLER, SFZ https://www.pianobook.co.uk/packs/manthey-klaviano/ Soft Piano (Spiifire Labs) ⭐ ⭐ A beautiful, gentle upright felt piano. FORMAT: LABS PLAYER (SPITFIRE) https://labs.spitfireaudio.com/?sortBy=prod_products_labs_latest VOCALS / CHOIRS Micah's Choir ⭐ ⭐ I love this library. The samplist who made it has a great deal of talent. It's a male soloist, but you can play it polyphonically. The singer's tone is beautiful. FORMAT: DECENT SAMPLER (also available for Spitfire Labs) https://www.pianobook.co.uk/packs/micahs-choir/ SonicCouture Tape Choir A retro choir patch that sounds a lot like the choir pad sounds on the 70s 10CC song, "I'm Not In Love." If I had a good voice, I would use this to cover the song. FORMAT: FREE KONTAKT PLAYER https://www.soniccouture.com/en/products/18-exclusive-free-content/p170-tape-choir/ Originals Choir ⭐ ⭐ A beautiful choir recorded at Air Studios in London. https://labs.spitfireaudio.com/choir Heavyocity Emotive Choir ⭐ ⭐ A beautifully sampled choir.

FORMAT: DEVELOPER'S FREE PROPRIETARY PLAYER https://www.ikmultimedia.com/products/mododrum/#nl_form_area Steven Slate Drums 5.5 Free ⭐ ⭐ A must have freebie if you create rock musician. FORMAT: DEVELOPER'S FREE PROPRIETARY PLAYER https://stevenslatedrums.com/ssd5/#SSD5FREE Soft Drums ⭐ This is a really nice, very usable traditional drum kit sample library. The drums are hit softly using Promark Broomsticks, which gives a sound like when a rock drummer plays hard with brushes, giving the drums a thwack type sound! I think these would be very useful for indie or folk rock. FORMAT: DECENT SAMPLER https://www.pianobook.co.uk/packs/soft-drums/ Originals Drums and VIntage Drums ⭐ ⭐ I love the sound of the Originals drum library. The only down side is that it only has two toms. The 1975 kit also sounds really good and has three toms. FORMAT: LABS PLAYER (SPITFIRE) https://labs.spitfireaudio.com/?sortBy=prod_products_labs_latest Orange Tree Samples free Funk Drum Kit Sample Library A nice little jazz/funk drum kit. It sounds good. FORMAT; SFZ https://www.orangetreesamples.com/blog/free-jazz-funk-drum-sample-library NOTE: Spitfire's Labs includes a two free drum kits that sound very good. See below for the link.

FREE/Donationware FORMAT: SFZ https://www.productionvoices.com/product/electric-v-le/ Worlitzer ⭐ Anyone who knows me at this forum is probably aware of my love of Wurli / Wurlitzer electric pianos. For a free sample library, this is really nice done and contains several patches.The samplist that made this clearly put some heart into it and it shows. FORMAT: DECENT SAMPLER https://www.pianobook.co.uk/packs/worlitzer/ Wurli A modest Wurli library. It really misses the dynamics that make a Wurli so special, but it otherwise, does have that trademark Wurli sound, but seems like a one velocity layer instrument. FORMAT: LABS PLAYER (SPITFIRE) https://labs.spitfireaudio.com/?sortBy=prod_products_labs_latest Anne-Marie The Hohner T ⭐ A nice sampled Honer T, just try it. FORMAT: DECENT SAMPLER https://www.pianobook.co.uk/packs/anne-marie-the-hohner-t/ The Electro-Acoustic ⭐⭐ Samples of an acoustic piano and Fender Rhodes electric piano layered. I love the sound! https://www.pianobook.co.uk/packs/the-electro-acoustic-piano/ GUITARS and BASS Heavyocity Foundations Nylon Guitar ⭐ A beautiful sounding nylon guitar. FORMAT: FREE KONTAKT PLAYER https://heavyocity.com/product/foundations-nylon-guitar/ Ample Guitar M Lite ⭐ I don't actually use this, as I primarily use Orange Tree Samples libraries and sometimes supplement them with NI's Session Guitarist when I'm first working on a song. But I have tried it and can recommend it as a free instrument. It's an excellent quality free plugin/sample library and in my experience, it's the best quality free acoustic guitar library available. FORMAT: DEVELOPER'S FREE PROPRIETARY PLAYER https://www.amplesound.net/en/pro-pd.asp?id=7 Ample Bass P Lite ⭐ For sampled electric and acoustic bass guitars, I'm completely set with Orange Tree Samples libraries, but I have tried this out and think for free, it's the best quality free electric bass library that I am aware of. FORMAT: DEVELOPER'S FREE PROPRIETARY PLAYER https://www.amplesound.net/en/pro-pd.asp?id=19 IK MODO Bass ⭐ This isn't a sample library, it's a modeled bass plugin, but it sounds very good, and is lightweight. It emulates a 1960's Fender Precision Bass. FORMAT: DEVELOPER'S FREE PROPRIETARY PLAYER https://www.ikmultimedia.com/products/modobass2/?pkey=modo-bass-2-cs MELLOTRON Plogue Sforzatron (Mellotron Sample Library) ⭐ ⭐ Some of the most popular Mellotron samples including cello, celli, strings, flute, woodwind sections, string sections, choir, pads, koto, and steel drums. The sample libraries were taken from the fantastic and freely distributed Taji Guy Mellotron samples that have been available online for two decades. This is easily as good as a commercial Mellotron library. In fact, if this wasn't free and I paid, say $35 USD for the library, I would be extremely satisfied with my purchase. This is one of my all time favorite freebies. FORMAT: Sforzando https://www.plogue.com/products/sforzando-banks.html ORCHESTRAL BBC Symphony Orchestra Discover ⭐ ⭐ A complete orchestra that sounds very good. It's not up to the level of a paid high end orchestral library, but it's amazingly good for a completely free orchestral library and it is pretty small in size in terms of data and won't tax on your computer resources. FORMAT: DEVELOPER'S FREE PROPRIETARY PLAYER https://www.spitfireaudio.com/bbc-symphony-orchestra-discover The Free Orchestra by PROJECTSAM ⭐ ⭐ A collection of orchestral related libraries including a choir, strings, and organ. It all sounds beautiful. FORMAT: FREE KONTAKT PLAYER https://projectsam.com/libraries/the-free-orchestra/ ORGANS Sonuscore Pipe Organ ⭐ ⭐ It contains several pipe organ patches that sound really nice. I love this freebie. FORMAT: FREE KONTAKT PLAYER https://sonuscore.com/shop/free-pipe-organ/ Sonokinetic Carousel Organ ⭐ ⭐ If you want a carousel organ, you're in luck! It sounds great and it's a lot of fun to play around with. FORMAT: FREE KONTAKT PLAYER https://www.sonokinetic.net/products/instruments/carousel/ Collab3 ⭐ This is a Hammond B3 emulation and I snuck this in because I picked this up a while back and just thought it was really good for a free B3 emulation with a Leslie rotary speaker effect. B3 perfectionists won't be satisfied, but it sounds really good and for the price (free), I don't think anything matches it. Listen to it yourself. FORMAT: DEVELOPER'S FREE PROPRIETARY PLUGIN https://sampleson.com/collab3-free-tonewheel-organ.html PERCUSSION World Colors Clar-Duduk by Evolution Series ⭐ ⭐ A very well sampled clar-duduk library. FORMAT: FREE KONTAKT PLAYER https://www.evolutionseries.com/product/world-colors-clar-duduk SONIXENIMA Christmas Bells ⭐ ⭐ Three different sized sleigh bells, multiple round robins, 3 preset rhythms; this is a nice little freebie.

Djembe, conga, bongo, udu and various taiko drums. FORMAT: DECENT SAMPLER (also available for the full version of KONTAKT) https://www.pianobook.co.uk/packs/hunters-percussion-world/ STRINGS Heavyocity Foundations Staccato Strings ⭐ ⭐ A beautiful, soft grand piano with great effects. A must have, IMO. I recommend downloading every free library in the series.

Strings 2 features additional articulations, pizzicato, bartok pizz and swells ensembles. Spitfire really knows how to create quality string libraries and it's evident even in this free library. FORMAT: LABS PLAYER (SPITFIRE) https://labs.spitfireaudio.com/?sortBy=prod_products_labs_latest Cello Moods ⭐⭐ While this library -- and none of the Originals libraries -- have a bunch of velocity layers I would expect in a paid library, it sounds beautiful and for a free library, is well worth having. FORMAT: LABS PLAYER (SPITFIRE) https://labs.spitfireaudio.com/?types=strings&sortBy=prod_products_labs_latest Originals Scary Strings, Frozen Strings, Amplified Cello Quartet, Artic Swells, Tape Orchestra, Harmonic Flights ⭐⭐ These are all interesting and worth downloading, IMO, I think I bought some of these back when they were selling for $5USD each and if they were back at $5 each, I would still recommend them. FORMAT: LABS PLAYER (SPITFIRE) https://labs.spitfireaudio.com/?sortBy=prod_products_labs_latest Arturia Augmented Strings ⭐⭐ EXPIRED A combination of real and synth strings with some very cool arpeggios and effects. This is, IMO, a no brainer, whether you're on a tight budget or have a good sized budget. FORMAT: ARTURIA'S PROPRIETARY PLAYER https://www.arturia.com/products/software-instruments/augmented-strings-intro/overview?gclid=CjwKCAiAzp6eBhByEiwA_gGq5NW_NQ6RLgmYwv2e-LU0_om4SO6vdS5s-Z_XAfj4h8xTzjlEnphH8xoCagEQAvD_BwE SYNTHS Syntronik 2 CS ⭐ ⭐ 100 patches and 2.4 GB of vintage synth goodness.

FORMAT: DEVELOPER'S FREE PROPRIETARY PLAYER https://www.zampler.de/ Heavyocity Foundations Synth Bass ⭐ ⭐ Good sounding analog synth bass with ARPs. FORMAT: FREE KONTAKT PLAYER https://heavyocity.com/product/foundations-synth-bass/ TUNED PERCUSSION Cinematique Instruments Alto Glockenspiel ⭐ ⭐ A beautiful sounding, beautifully sampled instrument. FORMAT: FREE HALION SONIC SE PLAYER https://www.steinberg.net/vst-instruments/alto-glockenspiel/ Vintage Glockenspiel ⭐ A beautiful sounding, beautifully sampled instrument. I love the tone of this glockenspiel library. There are some imperfections with the library, but it's a keeper for me. FORMAT: DECENT SAMPLER https://www.pianobook.co.uk/packs/vintage-glockenspiel/ Yamaha Glockenspiel ⭐ A nice sounding glockenspiel with every note sampled and two dynamic layers. It's well sampled, but, unfortunately, lacks round robins.

If you like the sound of music boxes, just get it. FORMAT: FREE KONTAKT PLAYER https://www.soniccouture.com/en/products/p43-music-boxes/ Wineglass Tool Kit ⭐ This is much more than straight wine glass samples. The samplist created 5 patches from samples of wine glasses: melodic ‘ping’; a soft pad; a set of percussive sounds; a synth; and a textural pad. FORMAT: DECENT SAMPLER https://www.pianobook.co.uk/packs/wine-glass-tool-kit/ Gentle Vibes ⭐ ⭐ A well sampled vibraphone played softly with soft, medium and hard mallets. I am a sucker for a nice vibraphone or glockenspiel library and this is very nice. FORMAT: DECENT SAMPLER https://www.pianobook.co.uk/packs/gentle-vibes/ Spring Chimes ⭐ ⭐ This is glorious library takes 14 existing Pianobook bell and mallet libraries and layers them together and the result is absolutely wonderful. FORMAT: DECENT SAMPLER https://www.pianobook.co.uk/packs/spring-chimes/ Schulmerich Handbells ⭐ A nicely sampled handbell lbrary made by Jon Meyer, a member of Pianobook who has produced some very good sample libraries. FORMAT: DECENT SAMPLER https://www.pianobook.co.uk/packs/schulmerich-handbells/ MULTIPLE INSTRUMENT PACKAGES These are multiple sample libraries from a developer that include a different sampled instruments. Native Instruments KOMPLETE START ⭐ If you’re on a tight budget or no budget, download this. If you don’t have anything from Native Instruments, you need to! These guys make argubly the best multisampler on the market. I own the full version of KOMPLETE, and outside of my DAW, it's the most important music-related software I own. FORMAT: DEVELOPER'S FREE PROPRIETARY PLAYER https://www.native-instruments.com/en/products/komplete/bundles/komplete-start/ Sonixinema Assorted freebies - vocals, cello, acoustic bass, violin, medicine drum... I really like the libraries these developer makes. It's all high quality. I recommend downloading and installing every freebie the developer makes . These freeibies are mini libraries, patches from their commercial libraries intended to give you a taste of the commercial library so that you'll want to buy it -- and you may find the formula works. But even if you never buy any of their paid libraries, these are really nice and worth downloading and installing. FORMAT: FREE KONTAKT PLAYER https://sonixinema.com/collections/freebies Stezov Diamond Jazz ⭐ A free set of instruments including a free upright piano that sounds really nice, a nice upright bass and saxophone libraries. The sax libraries are meh. FORMAT: FREE KONTAKT PLAYER https://www.strezov-sampling.com/products/view/Diamond-jazz-trio.html Spitfire Labs and Freebies ⭐ ⭐ If you haven’t already downloaded them, go do it… Guitars, bass, pianos, electric pianos, drum kits, strings, brass, woodwinds, synths, vocals/choris, orchestra instruments, percussion, tuned percussion… Get them all!

FORMAT: DEVELOPER'S FREE PROPRIETARY PLAYER https://www.orchestraltools.com/store/get-sine FREE SAMPLE LIBRARIES FROM PIANOBOOK Pianobook has many KONTAKT (paid version) free mutisample libraries and Decent Sampler (free) mutisample sample libraries. I wanted to create a list of their free Decent Sampler libraries I think are worth recommending. I’ll start by saying that these are often smaller, simpler sample libraries than the ones made for KONTAKT. First, I would recommend downloading every one of the free sample libraries from the developer who makes Decent Sampler. He’s talented and his videos are very, very good. If you’re not familiar with Decent Sampler, it’s a free mutisampler plugin. It’s not as sophisticated as KONTAKT, it’s just a nice, simple sampler that plays multisample libraries. https://www.decentsamples.com/product-category/publishers/decent-samples/ Free Decent Sampler Formated Sample Libraries on Pianobook I made this list when going through each library opened in my DAW, so you’ll need to search Pianobook to find them. Simply use the site’s search function with the library name. I’ll try to update this later and add links in the future. Soft String Spurs Dan Keen ⭐ ⭐ A collection of three beautiful viola libraries. I use the KONTAKT version. IMO, one of the best string libraries on Pianobook, if not the best. https://www.pianobook.co.uk/packs/soft-string-spurs/ Busy Bee Analog Oscilator A nice simple analog synth patch, actually two, one is lofi and I like it. Cassette Tape Organ A lofi organ that is only usually for slow parts because the attack is so delayed. But I love lofi sounds and it simply sounds cool to my ears. Distant Brass This isn’t a realistic sounding brass library, it’s very lofi and I think it’s pretty cool. I don’t do hip hop music, I sound bad enough singing rock, but if I did do hip hop, I think this could be especially useful. Classic Dance Synth This is your classic 80s House Piano sound. If that’s what you’re looking for, download and install this. Cream Soda Atmos Pad Antoher very pad that I like that has a very slow attac. Firefly Strings A thick analog strings sound that seems to be mixed with a pipe organ and I’m a sucker for pipe organs. Guffland Ukulele This isn’t an Orange Tree Samples kind of detailed sample library. It’s very simple. But the ukulele has a lovely tone. Harpsimachord ⭐ I greatly prefer the KONTAKT version of this, but I love this blended harpsichord. It’s really different and love this library. It works. Ideal Bouzouki Nice, simple. Worth installing. Multiple articulations. I love the plucked and fingered patch. If you’re not concerned about emulating the sampled instrument, the plucked and fingered patch has a harpsichord like quality about it. Lorenzo’s Drums ⭐ A must download. No, this isn’t a detailed sample library. But it is a really well done sample library and the tone of the drums are really good. I’m not as in love with the cymbal samples and the opening and closing of the hi hat needs work, but whoever did this, did an excellent job. Try it. Melodic Ping - Wine Glass Tool Kit Nicely sampled wine glass hits. Mini African Xylophone True to its name. A nice little library. Mixing Bowl ⭐ It sounds cool. It’s bold. It’s fun. I like it. Musical Stones It’s basically a xylophone featuring stones. It’s nice but the samples are a bit noisy. Still I like the character of the tone of the instrument and the noise doesn’t put me off as I see it as a bit lofi. New House Choir A lofi choir patch reminiscent of 10CC’s “I’m Not in Love” vocal pads but more church choir-ish. Prepared Staccota Cartoon Piano Does what is says on the tin. (Okay, I’m not British, but I’ve managed globally and made and still have friends there, does that count?) Reel to Reel Tape Piano Think lofi Mellotron piano. This is a pretty good approximation of that. Rob’s Andean Quena Flute Think lofi Mellotron flute. I really like this. Saraswati Vena Simple, nice. I like it. Shivering Keys A really interesting lofi analog piano that almost sounds like it could work in a horror soundtrack, but I think it’s slightly too sweet for that. Shivering Waves A lofi pad that sounds a bit like Shivering Keys in a pad. Signals Sound effects that are perfect for sci-fi. St Kathrin’s Bell It sounds great, like a church bell. But there’s a lot of noise in the samples. Synimer ⭐ A very 80s/synthwave type pad that sounds very good. I don’t know the song, but it sounds a lot like the synth pad from one of the songs in the 80s movie, “Breakfast Club.” Timpani Hits Nicely sampled, good sounding timpani hits. Triple Felt Experiment ⭐ ⭐ A beautiful sounding felt piano from Spitfire’s Christian Henson. Isometra Venus Theory ⭐ It comes from a talented patch maker and YouTuber and it’s a distorted analogy electric piano-ish library and I like it a lot and the GUI lets you easily modify the library and I have gotten good results very quickly. Well done. Organic Orchestra Venus Theory ⭐ A slow attack pad with a sound that seems like rain. It basically sounds like you’re in a rain forest. It’s very new-age-ish. Dead serious, if you’re into ASMR or looking for the kinds of sounds that you here in the music while playing Mindcraft, this would be a really good choice. Malevolence Venus Theory ⭐ Just my opinion, but I would recommend downloading everything Venus Theory uploads. He’s talented. This contains synth pads and basses and it’s good. Yamaha Grand Palm Mute If you’re looking for grand piano palm mutes, you should enjoy these. RJS Electric Guitar ⭐ A sampled Stratocaster electric guitar with the following patches: long notes with vibrato, palm muted notes, dead notes and feedback. Impressive. https://www.pianobook.co.uk/packs/rjs-guitar/ FREE LIBRARIES FOR THE FULL VERSION OF KONTAKT Deagan Vibraharp Vibraphone ⭐ This is a beautiful sounding vibraphone that is beautifully sampled by one of the most talented sample developers on Pianobook.

The sasmplist is Dan Keen from Spitfire, and when he puts up a library at Pianobook, it's an instant download for me. https://www.pianobook.co.uk/packs/soft-string-textures/ This list will be regularly updated.

  12. Boyss-Sound-e-Scapes is celebrating 7th Year Anniversary! • First of all, there is a sale: ENDED! • Second, a new product is released, Guitar DI, which is a multisampled "dry" electric guitar made for sound design. Formats: Kontakt, sfz and Decent Sampler. It is also on sale for 70% off. You can check more about it along with video and audio demos HERE. • Third and last, we released a light version of the Guitar DI for our 7th Year free pack. The main difference is that it has only 2 round robins compared to its bigger brother. We thought this through and 1 round robin would make the Lite version too limited, while with 2 round robins it's usable on its own. All specifics of differences are on the last tab on the Guitar DI Lite product page (click here), the tab named: "Lite vs Full". Thanks for being with us throughout the years! Boyss-Sound-e-Scapes

  14. Merry Xmas 2021 from Man Makes Noise! The Lobby Piano is a small grand piano in a lobby. I originally recorded said piano for The Lobby Piano Omnisphere library and ever since it’s release I have had plans to go back a record more from said piano. I have been unable to do so due to Covid restrictions, so I decided to go through the material I already recorded and find the most interesting sounds from there. I chose 10 different styles and techniques from the original recordings. As nothing was recorded chromatically I had to construct the samples for each of the 10 techniques with sound design trickery. Each of the 10 techniques is now “recorded” in triads for a chromatic range with 4-5 velocity layers, no round robins. So there is very little naturally recorded material in this piano. This is not a complete piano, but a colours and flavors type of additional piano. Contents One Kontakt 6 patch, one Kontakt 5 patch, one Decent Sampler patch, 10 .SFZ patches and 1189 uncompressed .WAV samples and takes up 3,3 gb of hard disk space. There are also 29 snapshots by Man Makes Noise and Torley for the Kontakt 6 version. Tech Specs Kontakt versions require the full version of Kontakt 6 and 5. Decent Sampler is available for free from Decent Samples. Plogue offers a free SFZ player Sforzando. Pricing The library is free and thus it will always be. Now, you will have to use the code FREEXMAS on check out (it takes 100% off the price). Why a code you might say. Well Gumroad (my ecommerce platform) has a size limit for free downloadable products and The Lobby Piano - Playable Techniques is way over that limit. Hence the code: FREEXMAS https://www.manmakesnoise.com/thelobbypianoplayabletechniques

  16. If you want to try sampling and already tried tx16wx and found it to be to much... Try Grace sampler. It works with CbB and is one of the easiest samplers to understand. (In my opinion). http://www.onesmallclue.com/plugin/grace/ PS. It is freeware.

  23. For some reason my mic started crackling out of no where. It didn't crackle before. I'm using a fifine mic that plugs straight into my laptop and there are crackles every time I record now. Do you think it's a problem with the wires because I googled it and that was an option. Also does anyone know of a FREE decrackle plugin. Right now I'm not in a place to spend money but I could really use any half decent free plugin because the crackles only appear every once in a while- it doesn't happen every single time I sing.
