Here is our summary of the samples of the week! This week we have Spitfire Fink Signatures, Ghost Drums, the Midnight Mirage romper, deeply discounted Kontakt instruments and fantastic freebies. On the good stuff…
Spitfire Audio Fink – Signatures
English developer Spitfire Audio has worked with Fin Greenall (Fink) to create a library of acoustic guitars. Instruments sampled 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 tone shaping, including String Squeak FX for controlling string noise…yeah, that goes deep!
Ghost Audio Factory phantom drums
Ghost Drums contains all kinds of drum sounds for EDM and rap producers. The factory bank includes 796 kicks, 264 snares, 939 tom and hi-hat loops, and 50 bass loops. There are both acoustic, electronic and hybrid sounds. That’s a lot of content for the asking price of $160, and the plugin is very newbie-friendly.
Midnight Mirage VST by Mike & Keys
Midnight Mirage VST is a virtual instrument from music producers Mike & Keys (credits include Nipsey Hustle, Dave East, etc.). The rompler contains over 90 sounds designed by the Grammy-winning duo. Sound shaping options include ADSR, reverb, chorus, delay, EQ, vinyl, and noise.
