CM96 - Textural Pads and Strings

16bit CM Classics

We have journeyed back to CM issues 41 and 42 to bring this hand-picked selection of CM samples from the archives.

There are 3 construction kits, 7 drum kits, phased keyboard loops and a set of vocoder waves from Cyclick; while Sound Effects library contributes a big selection of sounds for drum'n'bass, trip-hop, house and more.

And to top it all, there are 4 special SR-202 kits for use with the CM Studio's ace drum machine.

24 Bit Pad and String Instruments

This month, we have gone for the "textural" angle.

Each multisample consists of 4 notes per octave (evenly spaced at 3 semitone intervals) and each instrument has a range of between 4 and 6 octaves. Many samples have been embedded with the necessary loop information to maintain sustain loops. Of course, the majority of the sounds are complex stereo waveforms, so in many cases it's impossible to get a perfectly clean loop, but we have made the loop points as glitch-free as they can be. If the sampler you use has a loop crossfade function, us it further to minimise this problem.
