  • Risers/Fills etc. sample packs for ambient

    Hello all! Any suggestions/favorites on decent sample packs of risers and fills? So far most stuff I've got sucks for ambient/downtempo. I've got a few packs from bluezone corp that are ok but not really what I'm looking for.

    Any help/suggestions would be appreciated!

    Pax,

    DJ Lorn

    PS. And this is my first post so if its totally noob please give me the inaugural treatment. :-)

      Thanks sir!

      Riser / fills / whooshes, you know all those little samples used to mark transitions between sections of a track from intro to breakdowns and the like!

        Ah... Right... I think I understand now.

        Not something I am too familiar with, and in general I would make my own transitions rather that use pre-made samples.

        I am sure that some of the other peeps should be able to help you with this.

        cheers

          Right...that is what I was thinking I had to do since I've been unhappy with what I've found in sample packs so far.

          I'm thinking there is a MaxforLive kit to make these fills, but I can't seem to find it.

            Found this link here on the site.

            http://www.epicsound.com/sfx/

            A very useful resource to sfx design.

              VSTBuzz are currently offering “Octamorph FE” for only €9.99 (offer expires in 12 days from the time of writing this)..which is an
              instrument for NI's Kontakt.

              (NOTE: It's NOT compatible with the Free version of Kontakt Player..you need the full version of 5.1 or higher to use it.)


              From the VSTBuzz site:

              “Octamorph FE” is an 8 layers cross-morphing instrument and sound design tool for building complex soundscapes, morphing drones, shapeshifting risers and much more. The sheer wealth of sound creation possibilities make Octamorph perfect for Film, TV, Games composers and Sound Designers.



              I just got it myself yesterday and haven't had a chance to play with it yet, aside from watch a few tuto vids over on YouTube, but they certainly make it look like it's a real steal at only €9.99!

              And yes..it lets you make your own Riser / fills / whooshes and falls..alone with a few other neat things as well..including layered drones.

              The only thing that's even remotely negative..and this is maybe more of a personal thing..is I don't really like the general sound of the samples which come with it. They all seem to have a metallic "thinness" to them, if you know what I mean. But don't let that put you off, as one of the main things about this is it lets you import your own samples to work with, but I haven't tried this yet, so I can't say if that sound is carried over onto your own imported samples..I hope not. :biggrin:

              PS: It's worth bookmarking the VSTBuzz site..or subscribing to their list, as they really do offer some great bargains each month.

                  Tom Cosm has some videos on youtube about creating whooshes, rises, etc.. Check them out. Even though he's using Ableton, the techniques will apply to all DAWs / VST Automation.

                    Cheers, I'll check those out. As I'm an Ableton user it should be useful!

                      You could also have look round freesound.org. I normally either use a tweaked preset from omnisphere or craft my own by layering various samples through a layer of effects. Some bog standard transition effects can be got from http://www.bluezone-corporation.com/

                        Thanks mate. I have used bluezone in the past. They have some quality samples. I've been experimenting with omnisphere.

                          Glitch Machines samples might be good for darker ambient, they have several free packs in the download section(along with a couple free vst's)
