this is so so cool. you're brilliant for making this
K.K. Slider Sample Pack
A downloadable Sample Pack
The K.K. Slider soundfont is a little broken
As a music maker, I have utilized soundfonts in my workflow for a long time. However, when I switched over to using Sforzando I found that some soundfonts are a little broken and the program can be a little confusing at times. One of these soundfonts was the K.K. Slider Soundfont originally made for Mario Paint Composer
Facing this conundrum and seeing other music makers on twitter having the same issues, I wanted to breathe some new life into the soundfont and since a new Animal Crossing game just came out I figured more people would want to use it.
All of the samples in this pack are pulled directly from the K.K. Slider soundfont and are made to work in modern music software such as Ableton Live, FL studio, Bitwig, Cubase, etc. Each sample has the root key of the sample embedded for easy sampler use but there are also SFZ patches to use with Sforzando
The SFZ format is a Royalty Free plain text file format that stores instrument data for software synthesizers. It is similar to the Kontakt format and is used in Sforzando. I chose this format because it is easy to edit without having to have extra software to do so, I also chose it because Sforzando is a free plugin thus making it more accessible to use. Since it is just a plain text format it makes it easier to modify these patches to do whatever you want.
This entire pack can also be found on Github as it is my hope that other music makers can come together and make patches that work in other samplers as well like Kontakt.
This Pack Includes
- 9 Tuned Vocal Samples
- 5 Beatbox Samples
- KK Slider Guitar
- 11 SFZ Patches
- 1 Directwave Patch
Alright What's the Catch?
Hope you can make some good tunes with it.
