HeadlessBuddha Samples(freebie) - Coffee Cups Percussion

Hello guys!
We're releasing a new Kontakt Instrument right now. We sampled a set of five coffee cups. Let me tell you a story.

We on HeadlessBuddha love coffee almost as much as we love vintage gear.
Once upon a time, I was listening to some of my recorded ideias for a new psychedelic rock project while having a cup of coffee and started drumming almost automatically while the song kept going. The ideia for the Coffee Time Series came from this moment. I thought:
- Hey, I have a lot of cups around the house! I could make an awesome percussion instrument with it!
So I got five of these cups in different sizes, weights, and materials and recorded a track for my new song (which still unreleased). After doing that, I thought it would be useful to make a Kontakt instrument out of these five cups, and so I made it. I got my little spoon and experimented with it by hitting the cups in different positions and different areas.

Coffee Cups Percussion consists of:
92 Samples (six different combinations of spoon position and cup area on each of the five cups and three velocity layers on each combination plus two effects)
1 Kontakt instrument
15.5 MB
44.1kHz/16 bit .wav format
All recorded on an old cassette tape recorder. It's kinda raw, I cleaned it up a little bit but it didn't seem right to make the samples too clean. Listen to it below

Yeah, I sent you a pm with a link.

I forgot to say it includes 17 of our personal impulse responses. It probably makes some difference when deciding if you want to download it or not. At least it would for me.
