Yes, it’s true. KOAN Sound snares are available. Finally, no more scouring forums. I think the thread title, “How do You Sound Like KOAN?” is probably the most actively searched for topic of the last year, second only to the forum threads from a couple years ago, with the request: “How do I make dubstep wobbles? Help!” etc…
Well, any who, click the link below and snatch ’em up. They’re pretty good. Five deliciously thick KOAN snares. I wish I could take credit for ’em, but honestly, I saw a link for ’em from iLL Gates. I’m guessing they’re an official leak though, from the KOAN bro’s, themselves. At any rate, here they are: http://www.mediafire.com/?zo8wp6vureipiin
Well, recently I put the question out there to see what people might want in the world of samples.. I got a range of responses, some practical, some extremely difficult (i.e. “the sound of ants fighting”…) and, although I don’t think I’m ready to do a full on bugcore pack (with ants fighting and spiders … screaming?) I WAS able to take care of some of the percussion and snare requests.
Thirty hi-end snares that are clappy, snappy, shiny, copyright-free, and funky. I’m happy I made them, and, to be honest, I think I’m going to be using a lot of them in some of my new tracks :) They make a great crunk’d out basic glitch hop beat, if played alongside a bass kick. For best results, I’d recommend using them at mid-tempo or slower, but obviously, you can ignore my advice and say, “Screw you, Strange, Im’a do whats I wants!”
OK, fair enough. Do whats you wants, and click the graphic for the samples link…and please, if you like the sounds and find ’em useful, please leave a comment :)
