Re: World instruments samples?

Well, I've been doing some research...


or if you've got a LOT of cash


Seem to be the best comprehensive ethinic collections
out there.  Nice enough sounding demos but I wish I
knew someone who was using them.  I like the idea that
they're Kompakt instruments so not a lot of work has
to go into making each patch.  I like being able to
select a gamelan patch and woop there it is all nice. 
I spend far too much time tweaking guitar tone to
worry about sample wrangling.

Before I go and drop $400 on a sample collection I
think I'm just going to hold on to my ROM based E-MU
XL-7 with it's World Collection add on...  No extra
CPU strain and now that I've figured out how to access
and change add on ROM card patches from within Digital
Performer it's just too easy and there's no latency. 
A bunch of pretty damn good sounds too and I think the
ROM card cost me less than $100.

so for now I'm going to abandon my quest for an ethnic
sound collection... maybe pick up the Ethno 3 for
christmas... we'll see.
