ProjectSAM's newest freebie - Ghostly Clusters

Recommended Posts

I must admit that I am not a "samples" person but I have just installed Kontakt Player so I can have a bash at some of their free packs :)

Ooops... Just spotted that you need full Kontakt for the TFO stuff.

Oh well, that ain't ever going to happen...

So far, it's been a pretty modest roll-out of free content from the ProjectSAM catalogue,  and the patches are somewhat narrow in their potential use, at least for me.  So you're not really missing a whole lot, at this point. 

But I have to admit, all of these free samples are gorgeously recorded. And I understand that ProjectSAM's general programming and scripting is pretty solid. So I have heard, anyway.  Makes me think their products are worth taking a good look at -- assuming their style of library will fit into my workflow, with their emphasis on arranged ensembles and lots of baked in sounds and ambiance, etc.

ProjectSam Horns was one of my first sample library purchases years ago. It was updated & re-issued into Orchestral Brass Classic which I still use.

Orchestral Essentials 1 is a good choice for an all purpose starter package & rather inexpensive. Look for it when it's on sale.

Composer Guy Rowland has some good walk-thrus of various ProjectSAM libraries, including the above mentioned Orchestra Essentials. Pretty good overview of what they contain and how they sound. He also covers Lumina and some of the earlier Symphobia libraries in his other videos:
