Description: Swell is a Kontakt instrument and sound effects library designed to create natural-sounding rising sounds on a variety of cymbals. We brought in a professional drummer to perform each of the builds, and during the recording sessions we used a wide range of cymbal shapes and sizes. Cymbals included gongs, orchestral hanging cymbals, crashes, China cymbals, sizzling rides and others.

Particular attention was paid to the highest sound quality and detail when recording each performance. We chose a relatively free space for ultra-low noise wave reflections and recorded with John Hardy M1 preamps for plenty of clean gain. Schoeps and Neumann microphones were used to obtain greater range of coverage for each cymbal.

Swell is divided into 2 parts: Natural and Designed.
Natural – features recordings that have not been altered from their original source and were recorded to create clean, musical, natural-sounding build-ups.
Designed – uses samples based on natural recordings, but which have been transformed into completely new and different sounds using heavy processing and layering. It was created to quickly and easily create interesting designs and transition sounds. Swell includes over 200 fully engineered build-ups.
In addition to carefully recorded sounds, we’ve created a truly useful and flexible tool. This tool binds a modulation wheel to an entire matrix of effects parameters that you can manipulate in real time to instantly create complex sounds.
