Hey there. My name is Scott, a Drummer / Producer from Melbourne, Australia. I got tired of clunky cymbals with programmed and sequenced drums. Especially when it comes to working with rock, metal, prog, djent, etc…. That is where bad cymbals sounds can ruin the whole mix.
So, I sampled a couple of my own cymbals to use on some tracks. China cymbals at first. After passing them on to some other producers, there was a positive response. “More” they said.
CYMBAL PRO was born. I carefully recorded some of my own high-end cymbals, then borrowed a few from drumming buddies, and even visited my local drum store. The result is a versatile collection of cymbal samples that you can use on any project. I’m sure CYMBAL PRO will make your drum kits sound mega, your mixes crispy, and your grooves funky.
If you have questions relating to this website, send me a message via the contact page.
WHAT AM I PURCHASING?
CYMBAL PRO is a collection of cymbal samples in .wav file format. They can be used with almost any type of Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) or music sampler. Each pack contains a total of 30 samples: 10 x cymbals with 3 velocity hits for each listed cymbal (Hard, Soft, Choke)
When you purchase CYMBAL PRO, you are NOT obtaining OWNERSHIP of the sounds – you are in fact purchasing a LICENSE to use the sounds within your musical compositions, whether or not your compositions are released commercially. The original producers of the sounds will always remain the OWNER of the sounds. In other words, we created and recorded this sample collection: so we own it.
HOW CAN I USE THE SOUNDS?
You may use the sounds in combination with other sounds within your musical compositions. You may release such compositions commercially without payment of any further fees or royalties for such usage. For example, if you are the original purchaser of a sample CD, and you used sounds from it to create the soundtrack of a television commercial, simply by combining a synth loop sample with a guitar loop, and the TV advert was broadcast hundreds of times, you would keep all the royalties that the advert earns you, because you already purchased a private license to use the sounds commercially. You cannot use the sounds in isolation (i.e. when not within musical compositions) as part of a commercially released project – for instance you cannot use the sounds to make another sample CD, or for sound effects on a website or multimedia production – unless as part of a composition with other sounds.
WHAT MUSIC SOFTWARE/PROGRAMS SHOULD I USE?
This is a personal choice. All the major brands (Ableton, Logic, Garageband, Cubase, ProTools, PreSonus, Reason, Reaper, Bitwig, ACID Pro) have their strengths and weaknesses. CYMBAL PRO will work with any music program or sound card that supports 16 bit audio.
WHAT IS A ZIP FILE?
Zip files are single files, sometimes called “archives”, that contain one or more compressed files. Zip files make it easy to keep related files together and make transporting, e-mailing, downloading and storing data and software faster and more efficient. The Zip format is the most popular compression format used in the Windows environment, and WinZip is the most popular compression utility.
The Zip (Full) option from the format options tab contains All Samples from the product in .wav format.
HOW DO I OPEN A ZIP FILE?
You can download and Install WinZip from http://www.winzip.com if you version of Windows requires it.
Copy the Zip file to the location on your hard drive you wish the Sample pack to be. On PC right click and use the Winzip Extract to here tab. On Mac Just Double Click the Zip file.
This way ensures all files and folder stuctures will be correct.
WHO ELSE CAN USE THE SOUNDS I PURCHASED?
Nobody, unless they also purchased the same product from brand new. Only the ORIGINAL PURCHASER of has the right to use the sounds commercially. This means that you CANNOT SELL or give the sounds to anyone else. If you do, and they use the sounds within a commercial release, they will have to pay royalties for using the sounds. You will also have broken the law and may be liable to a heavy fine. You cannot place the samples on a torrent or file sharing network.
DO I HAVE TO GIVE CREDIT IN RECORDINGS?
This is not essential, but is always appreciated. If you have any other questions about usage or licensing, please contact us directly
CAN I RESELL WHEN FINISHED?
NO you cannot, you have purchased a single user licence for life, and it is not transferrable – so please don’t break the law and kill our business by trying to sell the samples you have licenced the use of from us. It’s unfair to all the musicians and producers who work hard to bring you these sounds at an affordable price.
