  • About this library

    Raw Series Vol.3 “Analog Tempest” is here!

    Based on the hybrid analog/digital drum machine of the same name.

    We have maintained our “raw” philosophy, carefully sampling the drum machine with top class preamps without further compression or processing. (and round robin!) You already know that dynamic range is key! But… We decided to make a twist and give you the opportunity to use layered kits and add further processing to the Kits with the onboard FX available in your DAWs.

    The result is an incredible organic sounding library! And the biggest one on the HelloSamples store right now!

    Are you prepared for the Tempest?

    Additonal Info
    Why should you care about dynamic range in sample libraries?
    1 - Well, for a start, compression and normalization are a process that is almost impossible to counter. Of course you can use expanders to regain some dynamic range, but the negative artifacts of compression and volume normalization will still be there. So if you want to use dynamic sounds in say, a more “laid back” production, you just can’t do it with regular libraries.
    2 - When dealing with synthetic analog sounds, dynamics are key. Unlike real drum and instrument samples, synthetic sounds are already very undynamic, so having the option to “let them breathe” a bit is certainly a good idea.
    3 - It’s as close as having the machine yourself. The “real deal” doesn’t sound compressed, it sounds RAW.
    4 - Most producers have their own set of preferred tools and dynamic processors. Some like the sound of a certain optical compressor, while others love “brand X” digital brickwall limiter. Producers and artists -like yourself- are very idiosyncratic, everybody has their preferences. However, most libraries are already compressed and maximized to hell with “brand Y” compressors and limiters.This leaves no headroom for the producer to apply his own set of tools, his “sound”, and he ends up with a production sounding timeworn, plain and ordinary.
