Here’s our Samples of the week round-up! This week, we have Spitfire Fink Signatures, Ghost Drums, the Midnight Mirage rompler, heavily discounted Kontakt instruments, and some fantastic freebies. Onto the good stuff…
Spitfire Audio Fink – Signatures
English developer Spitfire Audio worked with Fin Greenall (Fink) to create an acoustic guitar library. Sampled instruments include a 2004 Mal Brady Bouchier, a 2010 Martin D28, and a 1984 Martin D35. All played by the man himself and processed with his own effects rig in Berlin’s Jazzanova Recording Studio. The 54 presets also contain sections with percussion, vocals, and pads. There are nine controls for sound shaping, including String Squeak FX to control string noise… yeah, it goes deep!
