Rarefaction A Poke In The Ear With A Sharp Stick AKAi
Team: KRock | AKAi | Size: 292 MB
Over 1200 specially selected samples from the original Pokes vols. I, II & III , in the Akai S1000 format for use in Akai, Emu, Ensoniq, Kurzweil and Roland S1000 compatible samplers. Hundreds of deafening Metallic and FoundSound Percussion hits and events, rhythmic Machine and Noise loops, hyper-stereo Ambient Textures, Washes and FX, mind bending Vocals and Alien Environments. All files are 16 bit @ 44.1khz, set-up in ‘Overview Mode’ across the keyboard for quick review and integration into your own instrument groups. Definitely a surreal addition to your music, sound collage and media productions.
Each program is 8 meg or under for compatibility with most samplers. The keyboard spread is laid out in category types for quick review and formation of your own instrument sets. For universal compatibility across platforms, the samples are not setup with velocity layers and no additional filtering was added. What you hear is the raw sample, ready for your own personalized modification if necessary.
Keyboard spreads are set up as follows:
– All Percussive files are set up on individual keys, Root Note (original pitch) as heard.
– All Melodics files are set up in octaves across the keyboard (piano style).
– All Other files are in Fifths across the keyboard with the Root Note (original pitch) on the Third.
This allows for more samples per Program, thus a quicker review with some pitch variance up & down.
