Jaeger is back! Due to popular request, we’ve re-released our first sample pack. Aimed towards producers who understand that pre-made drum rhythms, melodic loops or quick ”fix” construction kits only result in you, the producer, having to make artistic compromises.
Working in the industry, we know many professionals don’t want the rigidity of fixed drum loops and don’t want to be forced into creative dead ends with pre-programmed leads and basses. They especially don’t want to struggle to attempt to match the sonic ”character” from esoteric analog gear to the rest of their mix.Â With Jaeger, there are no over compressed, over limited and over effected loops just so they sound great out of the box. And there are no pre-programmed lead or bass melodies to force you into a creative “dead end”
Instead, you’ll find a number of very carefully engineered kick drums, snares, claps, open and closed hats, shakers, cymbals, tambourines and various percussion instruments (including all the samples used in many of our genre tutorials). All of these are taken from our own personal sample banks that we’ve created over the years and all are sampled at 16-bit 44.1Khz.
Like our genre tutorials – each of these drum instruments is individually picked and sorted into 24 different samples per folder covering a diverse range of genres. This saves you from having to preview the samples in a browser beforehand – simply drop a folder of kick samples (for example) into your sampler and move through them with MIDI and in the context of your track.
In total there are approximately 197 kick drum samples, 120 claps, 115 Open Hats, 105 Closed Hats, 78 Cymbals, 21 Shakers, 80 Snares, 11 Tambourines and 58 other percussive style samples – all covering a wide range of (electronic dance) styles.
In addition to the drums, Jaeger also features a number of multi-sampled leads and basses, programmed and sampled from instruments such as the Alesis Andromeda and classic EMU, Yamaha and Roland gear. These are all sampled at the most important octaves of the instrument and at every note of the octave.Â These multi-sampled instruments are all in 24-bit Wav format and pre-formatted for Logic’s EXS24, Reason and Kontakt (v3 upwards) allowing you to have the instruments up and running in your sampler in minutes. In this re-issue, we’ve also included further multi-sampled instruments from our previous productions.
If you’ve seen any of our genre tutorials and are a professional or semi-professional producer, Jaeger offers an efficient solution for getting the basis of your tracks down without the hassle or fuss of trawling through hundreds of loops and sample packsÂ to try and find something worthwhile to get your ideas going.
