    Xsample Libraries

    Anyone have them yet? Is it really true that Best Service is only selling them as a set?

    I don\'t know the details on how they will be packaged but the quality of this set is very good. Hope you enjoy them when they release.

    I tested it for EMU (9 CD´s) and AKAI (9 CD´s) i didn´t hear the Version for Giga-Sampler because there are still working on it. In the first Edition of the XSample library are no Section-Instruments on it just Solo-Instruments. The quality is very, very good. Very good recordings also. (for e.g. the harp is so beautyfull you can´t believe it !). I think Best Service will release the Giga-Sampler Version in about 1-2 months. Ask Best Service for a DEMO CD which is available.

    From my experience, Best Service produce excellent quality products so i\'m confident it\'ll be great. I constantly buy production samples from a variety of sources. Some are just horrible and yet they will recieve great 5 star reviews. Its not my place to
    name the shoddy ones but i certainly have confidence with Best Service products.
    I am in no way connected to the company buy the way.

    Regards

    Excuse my ignorance but what\'s an oboe d\'amore ? Thanks. The Xsample libraries look very interesting to me.

    It is a rarely used instrument, a kind of \"mezzo-soprano\" Oboe. It is built a minor third below the standard oboe, but does not possess the key-extension for producing the low Bb. It´s upward range is to the high E.

    Re: Xsample Libraries

    Hans-Josef,

    I’m greatly looking forward to working with these libraries.

    I’m also struck by what’s not there: No flute or piccolo. No Arco vibrato for the violin and viola. No harmonics, mutes or tremolo for the strings. Are these things planned for the feature?

    Best regards,
    Bill

    Hello Bill,

    our idea is to create playable instruments of highest quality. We have
    certainly recorded violin, viola and double bass vibrato also flute and piccolo,
    there are also a lot of other instruments and playing styles in our archives,
    but we can\'t do everything at one time. We also want to start with some fresh
    and unusual sounds. So we had to decide to a selection.
    We mastered 27 CD\'s. Every format (GigaSampler, Emu and Akai) contains more than
    17600 samples, that\'s really a lot, as far as I know it\'s the biggest
    library. All these samples are prepared and tuned very carefully and with
    highest quality standard one by one, that takes a lot of time...
    The GigaSampler version contains more than 1000 instruments (presets).

    Best,
    Hans-Josef

    Thanks Hans-Josef.

    That\'s what I imagined. Just wanted to know where you were headed.

    Thanks for your efforts!
