Friday’s Freeware: Taikos for everyone
Nine Volt Audio is not quite dead, at least not closed, for the original team offers a Japanese Taiko percussion sample library.
It’s been almost a year since Nine Volt Audio ended its activities, but the website is still open. The original team is now developing a new projects, In Session Audio, but it looks like they’re not ready to abandon their first baby, for they decided to offer this week a free library, The Beat Aesthetic: Taiko Edition.
This 2GB+ collection was originally available on 3 DVDs and sold $99.99, but you can download it today for free.
The Beat Aesthetic: Taiko Edition includes more than 1600 samples and loops of 30 different Japanese percussion instruments in Kontakt, Stylux RMX, REX, Acid WAV, Apple Loops and standard WAV 24-bit / 44.1kHz formats.
Each format includes 20 Full Mixes suites and 20 Matching Parts suites, which allows for working with full multitrack mixes or just use separate loops.
The Kontakt version also includes a convolution reverb with 34 IRs, saturation, high-pass and low-pass filters, stereo spread, velocity curves and input/output quantization. Note that you’ll need the full version of Kontakt 4 and later, it’s not compatible with the free Kontakt Player.
All the details of the library are online at www.ninevoltaudio.com, and you can download it from the bottom of the homepage.
Have a great weekend, AFersan!
