I’m very proud to announce the release of my newest sample library “Fractured”. You can see screenshots and listen to a collection of really wonderful demos from a group of very talented composers on the Big Fish site. It’s a wonderful sense of satisfaction that I feel when I hear awesome music being made from my library.
There are over 100 instruments in “Fractured” representing a wide variety of sounds. Some instruments were made from acoustic preparations such as pinching off strings with clothes pins or threading strings with bobby pins, business cards, wire and other items. Other instruments were made by playing the guitar in non-traditional ways like tapping strings with chopsticks, silverware, plastic forks, snapping strings with rubber bands, rubbing wires across strings, rubber balls pulled across the back, drumming on the guitar with hands, mallets, dish brushes, scissors etc. Then there were other instruments which I altered digitally sometimes subtly sometimes to extremes. Then of course there’s all manner of combination of the above three categories of instruments . One of the cooler features of this library is that every instrument comes with an icon that can be clicked on to see a picture and read a description of how exactly I created each instrument.
I’ll post more on the library soon including a video!
