Cory’s Library Spotlight – Perfperc Volume 1 by Performance Samples

Performance Samples’ Perfperc – Volume I marks the beginning of an exploration of percussion libraries built using multi-samples captured from repeated performance phrases. This library was produced with a heavy focus on start-time consistency and timbral cohesion between RRs, wrapped up in a performance-sourced repetition approach, which in percussion leads to a natural flow between notes, tighter playing, and more uniform dynamics. There was also significance placed on making the velocity response predictable and smooth, aided by the wide dynamic range recorded (up to 15 dynamics).

With Perfperc – Volume I Jasper Blunk founder of Performance Samples introduces a unique series of an examination of percussion libraries built using multi-samples captured from repeated performance phrases. This library was produced with a heavy focus on start-time consistency and timbral cohesion between RRs wrapped up in a performance-sourced repetition approach. This leads when playing percussion to a natural flow between notes, tighter playing, and more uniform dynamics. There was also significance placed on making the velocity response predictable and smooth, aided by the wide dynamic range recorded (up to 15 dynamics).
