After the great success of MegaMagic Dreams and MegaMagic Pads, I wanted to think a little bigger and make sure the library was more flexible – I really loved how the guitars turned out in MegaMagic Dreams, so I produces a sampling session with a dear friend and excellent guitar player named Erick Hailstone (you will know more about Erick after the NEXT library comes out). We did 4 hours of him playing single boring notes with a BUNCH of different guitars – I wanted more variety and more notes so I could use Multi-Mode to make them a little more realistic sounding. At the end of the session, I pulled out my box of bell and wind instruments that I had built up to record (see the photo below) and for about 15 min, I picked up and played each of my handbells, finger cymbals, 3-bar Bells, Flutes, Pan Flutes and even my EchoHarp harmonica that I’ve owned since I was probably 8 years old! That 15 min of recording time turned out to be AMAZING. I was shocked how nicely everything played – even the flutes (which I am not an expert at playing!)
Unique features of this library:
Over 25 acoustic bells and wind instruments performed by John Lehmkuhl availble in
• MegaMagic - Processed with LUSH multi-effect reverb and other effect processing chains I designed for this library and recorded into the sample.
• Dry - The source that was fed into the DSP effect chain.
• LOOPED - Almost everything is looped and the Looped patch is set with a slow attack for awesome PAD sounds!
This makes up 150 patches of the libary.
There are then 150 signature patches created by Airwave, ExoSun, Kid Anthem, Jason Schoepfer, myself and a few other guest programmers that created really exciting BONUS patches. These take the library to all sorts of new and excitng places!
AND THEN I was about to release the library when I was offered samples by Steve Tavaglione (session woodwind GURU that has performed on so so many films (using my sounds I might add) including Finding Dory, Bridge of Spies, Underworld: Awakening, Supernatural, Wall-E and so many more!)
So there are 14 AMAZING sound sources from Steve including Flute Harmonics, Flute Taps, Bass Bansuri, Waterphone + Flute and more. These are 5 - 12 second long PERFORMANCES in many cases and give this library some really special sounds that have been used in some of the TV shows and Movies that Steve has worked on!
