Well that was nice. Would recommend.

I've just completed my first samplepack after being inspired watching a Christian Henson video.

I used a baby blue bottle condenser approx. 6" distance.
RME UCX preamp.

After editing and renaming (phew!...only 3 velocity layers = 51 files... but phew) I used spectral de-noise.
No eq just a little compression.

Imported into Kontact and mapped them.

Dash of delay...hint of reverb....Oh that'll do lovely. :-)

Partway into the process.

17 key Kalimba.

These aren't just any kalimba samples I'll have you know.

Literally handcrafted ….by hand (technically by thumb, one of which has hard skin from guitaring and adds a certain 'attack' to the notes it played).

It's not that I think the pack isn't good enough. I daresay I could find a few people who may buy it, but that's not my bag, nor is giving sounds away.

They're my 'precious' so to speak.

I've recorded samples for decades but never an instrument set. A new world awaits...ok maybe not into sampling piano with 50 velocity layers but I've got a few awkward instruments I'd like capture.
