Wave Alchemy are proud to announce Paperskins Snare Toolkit, a hand crafted and articulately designed collection of 'filthy' snare drum samples and layering tools!
Paperskins serves up 211 individual snare drum sounds; each of these samples being conveniently provided in three distinctively different 'sound/shape' and tonal variations, perfect for layering and crafting new snare drums…
All sounds have been processed through a high-class, all analogue signal chain, with lots of extra vibe added through the use and abuse of an Akai S1000 sampler, often recorded to at a hot level and driven by ears rather than meters - this has imparted a unique sounding ‘papery’ sizzle to the sounds…hence the name “Paperskins”
What’s included in the collection?
Be aware that these are not your typical ‘clean’ or ‘pretty’ sounding snare drum samples - Paperskins is a unique sounding, raw and downright filthy (quality filth!) beast of a collection with plenty of analogue vibe! Expect to find a versatile selection of chunky, energetic and gritty snare drums, expressively layered acoustic hits and everything in between…
Although the snares work great as individual sounds, the library is designed as a toolkit and we therefore encourage the use of layering and experimentation. Try layering ‘Slappers’ together with ‘Fluffers’ to create new and unique snares, mixing in as much or little ‘slap’ or ‘fluff’ as you desire.
Tip: we have enjoyed great results subtly layering sounds from this collection with ‘cleaner’ sounding snare drums (Drum Tools 01 for example) – adding that bit of extra dirt and energy that is often needed!
