FS Collection (new gig samples)

Postby flameboy » Fri Aug 22, 2008 4:08 pm

I've made some gig samples that are free (gpl license) and I am planning on making more when I get the time. So far in the FS Collection (flame studios collection) there is:-

    1) A Seagull Acoustic Steel String Guitar with Fender Reverb.
    2) An Ibanez Acoustic Steel String Guitar with Fender Reverb.
    3) An Ibanez Electric Bass Guitar.
    4) A Washburn Electro-Acoustic Bass Guitar.
    5) A 5-string Kay Banjo.

These can be downloaded at http://flamestudios.org/free/GigaSamples and they have all been tested on LinuxSampler and work fine.

I am also planning on sampling a Fender Jaguar electric guitar and Gibson Les Paul electric guitar through a Fender Bassman and lots more when I get the time.

Unfortunately some people have had errors while opening the archives from the site. As it turns out the problem is not the archives on the server but the fact that some people are getting the file cut short before it is fully downloaded. I think it is due to a limit of connections on the server but I will not be sure until I get a phone call about it tomorrow (26th August 2008). I will let you know the outcome and will get it sorted as soon as possible. So, in short if you have corrupted archives it is most likely that they have been cut off halfway through. The best chance of getting a completed download at the moment is to download just one file at a time. Sorry for any inconvenience, the problem will be sorted as soon as possible.

I have now found out why people have had trouble downloading. It is that the server resets every now and then and also cuts everyone off at the same time. Although I have paid for unlimited space from freeola it is absolutely useless for me as it is impossible to guarantee that anybody can even download a small file (if they start just before the server reset). Freeola have been good in every other way but they are no good for sites with downloads. Anyway, I am now looking into a new web host. I will let everybody know when I have swapped. In the meantime the download problems will continue. Sorry for any inconvenience, I will get it sorted though.

There is now a mirror site for the giga samples, the link is at the top of the giga samples page on my site. Thanks go to KrzysiekK (from KVR forum) for organising it and his mate for providing the space. Make sure to take a look at his site while you are there. Each of the seperate files are on the mirror. The full FS_Collection is not but that file is just all of the seperate files in one archive.

I have also sorted out a new host. Its just a matter of time before everything is uploaded to it.

I'm currently downloading the acoustic Ibanez guitar from the mirror and got a great average download speed of 1.33M/s according to wget. 8-)

Good, that is a good speed. You must have a fast connection. I am hoping to get my new host sorted today also. It is good to have a mirror but as I am planning on adding more I need to have some reliable space of my own where I can upload when I like. Most of what I have done has been practice for some hopefully better instruments to come. I need better sound proofing first though as the guitar samples suffer on the tail ends from my noisy computer and other background noise, especially the reverbed samples as my reverb unit highlighted the noise. The banjo and bass samples were not so noisy luckily.

The sounds are great. The banjo is great fun!

BTW, Benno have offered to host/mirror free sample libraries on the LinuxSampler servers toanyone interested in it (currently only the Maestro Grand is mirrored there).

I have added more gigasamples to the collection. They consist mainly of electric guitars. Some sampled through a Fender Bassman valve amp and some sampled direct in. Apart from the guitars there is an electric bass and a little percussion set.
