BFD3 Library for Kontakt: Kits 2 & 3 + Percussion Pieces
These are the last 2 kits of the BFD3 Factory Content.
Kit 3 follows the same structure as Kits 1 & 4. As for Kit 2, each sample provided by fxpansion consists of 16 channels. Which means for the Mic I called Room Far, we have both stereo (2 channels) and mono (5 channels). When converting this Kit, I had 4 options, 3 of them would not require any script changes:
Option 1: Provide only the mono channels for Room Far
Option 2: Provide only the stereo channels for Room Far
Option 3: Mix the stereo channel with the 5 mono channels (i.e convert the 5 mono channels into stereo and mix them with the stereo samples) .
Option 4: Change the script and provide an extra mic (I called it Amb Mono) and use the stereo channels for the Room Far and the mono ones for the new mic.
To provide the best results, one would choose Option 4 and that’s what I did. So I modified both my program used for converting the BFD3 samples into multi files and the Kontakt script to support a fifth Mic.
I have also added one small feature which I hope would help those who like to route Mics to different output channels.
Kit 2: 3.4 GB. Kit 3: 4.3 GB. Percussion Pieces: 228 MB [Read more…]
