So I absolutely LOVE the music created by Noam Hassenfeld, a muso based in D.C. I stumbled across his stuff on bandcamp many years ago and have listened to his music almost every week since, including today!
He does LOADS of hand claps and percussion (This was PRE El Clappo!! @bozmillar… I wonder if he does them himself or used samples?) and lots of cool sounds and samples, both melodic and rhytmic
Check out the example below, but really any song off of this EP will highlight the sounds I want to ask about.
I have reached out to him and he has informed me that he uses Logic and his sounds generally come from Kontakt and Massive.
One of my projects that I am working on will be in a similar vein. I would love to have a good sampler to be able to quickly and efficiently program and compose samples in the way he does.
How do you fine folks rate Kontakt?
I have not used Reaper’s ReaSampler so I am not sure what it’s like either. I’m not too worried about the synth (Massive - I assume that is what that is!) as I subscribe to the slate digital all access pass so I wil be using their synth once my PC is upgraded.
I’d love ot hear your thoughts on Kontakt or any other way to achieve such sounds and more importantly, performance.
