Free audio samples and MetaSynth presets

The samples are all original recordings done by Helge Krabye. Copyright 2005. The presets included in the folders are for MetaSynth 4 and are not compatible with earlier MS versions. If you do not own MetaSynth, you may still download the samples and use them in your favorite sampler or audio sequencer :)

Mountain Dulcimer
DulcimerPresetsThese samples are from a hand built Mountain Dulcimer (by Jerry Rockwell) that was built for Helge Krabye in March 2009. This is a four string dulcimer tuned in D-A-D-D. Each string as well as a couple of chords have been recorded with two Neumann KM84 condenser microphones in 24 bit resolution and converted to 16 bit.
You will find ImageSynth presets (both clean, musical phrases and experiemental effects) as well as Spectrum Synth effects and audio files. After downloading the zip-file, start by opening the hbMountainDulcimer.presets file and listen through the presets. Then open the Spectrum Synth and other files.

Here are eight samples of Helge Krabye's TreeWorks belltree recorded in 16 bit 44,1kHz with two Neuman KM84 condenser microphones. They will create rich atmospheres and sounds if you manipulate their pitch in MetaSynth (or a different sampler of your choice).
