Waldorf has released a new soundset, Attack, that turns the Blofeld into a drum machine sound module.
Here’s what they have to say about it:
Thanks to deep, multitimbral programming Blofeld acts as 16-piece electronic drum module.
With Blofelds extensive VA engine, we were able to recreate those lovely analogue drum sounds, but we didn’t stop there. FM and wavetables create exotic percussions, perfect for more aggressive styles of electronic music or experimental ethnic tunes. To round everything up, Attack sound set includes over 27mb of percussive samples ranging from acoustic drums and cymbals to vintage drum machines and weird ambient noises. Samples are then mangled in the Blofelds guts; filtered, pitch stretched, FMed and layered with other sound sources for unheard-of sonic textures.
All sounds are logically sorted for quick and painless navigation. Attack sound set contains: 20 kicks, 20 snares, 5 claps, 8 hihats (each one in open and closed version), 12 crash cymbals, 9 rides, 7 tom sets (each made of 3 drums), various tambourines, shakers, cowbells and 8-bit blips. Two ‘init’ sounds are included for easy creation of new drum sounds and sample based hits.
The Attack Blofeld soundset is available for 30.00 Euro at the Waldorf site.
