Best Tamborine VST?

Looking for a VST that features the tambourine sampled... additional auxiliary percussion instruments would be nice as well.

The best solution to this that I've found is as follows-

* Find loop packs that contain tambourine loops.

* Open in Recycle > chop to .Rex

* Open .Rex file in Battery. Apply 'humanisation' parameters to taste.

* Sequence your loop from your DAW... selecting where you personally want the more accented hits to be, and with the relevant groove template for your track.

Mwahahahahaaa, so my plan worked....I used my mind ray to conceal it's presence, until this very day.

Not that long, a few months afaik. They are the company who made some plug ins for Ableton. Analog, Corpus and of course Collision which is what it's based on.

Best thing is when you start adding all the velocity modulation, to try and copy that with plain subtractive would be a nightmare and probably not possible in some cases.

If you like that you should take a look at Tasman (same website), it's been around for years but still sounds amazing, it's hardly user friendly but it's very very usefull.

Ableton Native Version

Simon I'd wait for a sale. Although it's fully worth it at that price, especially since you can get another plugin in their 2 for 1 promo (i.e. the great Tassman 4).

The guy behind AAS is some physics genius who made his thesis on chaos and dynamic systems (like acoustic instruments).

I bought a tambourine at Guitar Center for $8!!

I bet that's cheaper than any synth or whatever!

That's what I would do if I were you! Except of course that I already did

I would play it before you write it off, the nuances you can program in are pretty amazing. You can pay more than that for a static sample dvd of world percussion.

Buy the tambourine! sample it in different rooms, close mike'd, far mike'd, hit single jingles with a finger tip, hit the skin in different places (if its a skined tamb) and finally just sample it being thrown very hard at the wall.

Afterwards build the sample set and share it with us. 96/24 please!

BTW you should be able to achieve that sample session in one shopping trip time span, so no worry about the wife and when the neighbours come knocking make sure you sample them too.

They do often sales and even so now you get 2 for 1 so it's actually 100$.

I payed 99$ when they had a sale in december.

They do sales on every holyday. (usually 50% off)

Exactly!

I have a bunch of libraries like glockenspiels and xylophones etc.
While great they take up a lot of precious hard disk space and RAM!

On top of that they are not that responsive as you can imagine a modeled algorithm is.

For the price and the fact that it's easy to load, install etc. (has only about 12mb) and can make natural and unnatural sounds I nominate it synth of 2011 for me.

I actually have a project on my now crashed laptop that uses only Chromaphone for everything!

From the odd bell like sounds/textures to pads to even 909 type kicks and heavy hitting snares.

Hihats etc etc.

Mind you I use a lot of processing but I never have so much power with it. Chromaphone takes compression, eq, reverb and whatnot like nothing else.

i downloaded the demo..and hope i dont like it.. i just bought a juno 6 for 300.. i hate to spend too much money for plugs..it sums up over the years and dont has any real value when you need to free some money..while with analog synths i never lost money ( ok..i can service and repair them myself..that helps )

but.. i ve to admit that more natural percussion tones would fit well in my actual project, and i dont use samples really.. defently interesting..

but just in case..when i would fall for it..and the 2 for 1 buy brings it into a not so crazy overprized range.. what would be the second one ?

I have tons of percussion. I have the Wave Alchemy Bumper Pack, A lot of Goldbaby, BFD 8bit and Percussion, vir2 Global, but with the AAS plug ins I can make the sound quicker than I can find it(not really but it sounds cool) and on top if that it's more dynamic.

Not only can you replicate real world instruments but you can use physical modelling to create instruments that would be physicaly impossible :s Enigma!

thats exactly what i am after.. i dont do electronic music to sound natural.. but a morph between syntheic and acoustic timbres.. .. usalyy get a bt there with my nord modualr and reamping via microphone recording... but its a bit limited for virtual modeling..however more capabel there than most VA synths.

****ing hell theese aas demos suck big time.. they dont want to sell that stuff..at least not to me.. forget it.. fades ever y 5 seconds-. i get a headache from that..

when i test a plug i want to know if i can do something with it.. i am not interted i a preset check..that dont tells a thing..

ok went thru a view minutes of headache now.. i like the unperfect physical modeling patches or acoustic simulations of the nord more.. has more electrofunk to it and unpredictabilitys.. and bell sounds? thats so 80´s...

Tried the demo. This thing sounds fantastic.

... Added to the list of things I can't afford along with Diva, Tremor, Nebula, Octatrack, Machinedrum, EHX Deluxe Memory Man & Sherman Restyler.

Here's hoping for a lottery win tonight.

sound quality is good ... true.. but has way to many presets on board .. and is more a beller than a drummer

yep.. but bells are easily to create with digital synths.. in all shapes and szises.
also marimbas aso.. real drum skin sounds is another thing.. its not bad there...but very stiff on the settings..

its maybe a bit unfair to compare with the nord mordular because the nord is so powerfull and expensive in relation to a cheap plug.. but owning the nord has saved or prevented me form buying so many plugs in the last ten years.. it payed itself just for this ;-)

i actually would love to find a drumskin / body syntheziser that has a advanced parameter set like having 6 or 8 tensions along the skin and an x/y placement for the hit point.. softness and elasticy of the skin.. variable reosnance hole and damping aso.. probably a job for the kyma system...

its mazing how many differnt sounds you get out of a real drum.. a real complex model could be fun..

but back to the topic.. with 17 instances of the ass plug and a controling reaktor patch you might get a pretty convincing tambourine ;-)
