Good pad samples? 2014-03-11 12:29:58 Reply

Anyone know where I can get some good pad samples? preferably free but I'm fine to spend a bit
I'd rather not dnb pads - just normal pad samples dnb pads move too much I want more freedom

was wanting absynth or something but I don't have the money or CPU

cheers


also when I google it I get shit about tampons o.O

Save up and get Tone2 Gladiator if you want an Ultimate Pad solution. No more relying on samples.

With it being HCM (Aka, Fancy Wavetable with time morphing on the Waveforms), you can honestly make some of the most beautifully rich and the most Monstrous Pads ever. I consider it even better than Omnisphere in this regard. Pretty nice for Leads and other weird and wonderful experimental sounds. I consider it my Workhorse synth I think it's that good.

You can run a timed demo of it and see how you get on. Other than that, Tone2 Firebird2 is the only Freebie solution (That is HCM as well but older and lighter) which may greatly interest you for Pad creation.

Use Autogun or make one by starting from scratch using the default in Sytrus.

What daw do you use and what vsti's do you have at your disposal already?
If cpu is an issue,
create a pad in a separate track, keep built-in FX like reverb or chorus to a minimum or simply avoid them, sample one or several notes and export them as wav/sample that you'll use in your main track.
Depending on how your DAW handles samples, you could just tweak the pitch, slice sample into notes and assign them to keyboard etc...
From there you create a melody fitting with the rest of your track and start applying effects.
Once you're satisfied with it, you go back to the vst, record a clean final melody and re-export?

Or work the other way around, import your mix, add a pad, export pad and finalize the mix.

Also you can tweak so much types of samples to create pads/soundscapes. Voices, drums, your past tracks as a whole.
Sample the samples^^
On music radar website they give away alot of free stuff.

PS: Firebird and synth1, free and good.
