Two New Sample Releases from Homegrown Sounds

New collections of loops and textures (February 07, 2005)

Homegrown Sounds are pleased to announce the release of two new products. 'Homegrown Electric Sitar' and 'Radiance.'

'Homegrown Electric Sitar' was created with a Jerry Jones Electric Sitar, the modern equivalent of the original 60's Dan Electro Sitar made popular by artists such as the Beatles, the Stones, and more recently Paul Weller. It is a conventional guitar with a specially designed bridge and pickups to create a unique sitar like sound. This is the first Homegrown DVD to be released and contains 12 multi-sampled instruments, 400 WAV loops, and 378 REX (RX2) files, all samples are 24-bit 48khz, as a result of this some applications may not read the rex files, download the demos to check for compatibility with your software. The instruments contain one sample per note with an underlying velocity layer made up of one sample per string, and range from clean hard attack to experimental verby sitar pads in style. The loops are played on the sitar and are mainly picked melodies as these are most successful with the REX format. There are also a number of beat sliced variations. The DVD retails at 24.99 GBP including postage.

'Radiance' is a new collection of Pads and textures to add to the Homegrown Sample Library. This collection ranges from angelic beautiful landscapes in the region of Eno, Budd through to darker harsher sounds, Trans Global Underground and Coil etc... The sounds can be used for any project requiring an interesting flavour, and will be a great addition to any studio. The CD contains 200 long Wavs with well defined loop points weighing in at a huge 675mb. There are patches for Halion, Kontakt, EXS24 mkII, and NN-XT, and the WAVS can be used in any application which reads WAVS such as SX, Nuendo, ACID, Fruity Loops and Ableton Live. The CD retails at 19.99 GBP including postage.

About Homegrown Sounds
Homegrown Sounds is a small business, and copyright/licensing is owned for all sounds available. 90% of all CDs are created in house. We try to provide sample CDs a bit different to the norm, and generally have 'our sound' much like a record label. We supply the sounds on CDR and DVD-R to keep the costs low and reduce our storage space requirements, which is why our collections cost much less than other sample CDs, We believe that professional quality shouldn't cost a fortune.
