The creator of the popular World Winds sample library, Dirk Campbell, brings us a new production that journeys to a place where no one has yet traveled. Deep into the sonic terrain of worlds past, Origins is an exhaustive collection of authentic, atmospheric historical sounds that will add color to any composer’s palette. Along with a huge collection of multisamples presented in a variety of different dynamics and articulations, the library features a large number of expressive phrases and performances. Origins’ vivid, dramatic samples promise to add sonic and musical interest to historical and archaeological productions, film scores (especially Fantasy, Sci-Fi and Horror), World Music soundtracks, Left-Field rock and pop, creative remixes and any recordings that require imaginative sound design and innovative textures. Many of the sounds in this collection are available for the first time in any sample library.
