Hey what’s good fam, just back with another review from Best Service
And yes, it’s another library from Eduardo Tarilonte 🙂
This one is more “traditional” and not really in the sound design style I’ve been reviewing.
It’s a library for Kontakt dedicated to the Accordion
let’s check it out!
So what is Best Service Accordions?
It’s a Kontakt library dedicated to accordions
It’s made up of 8 different accordion instruments
Also runs in the free Kontakt Player in addition to the full version
It has it’s own custom interface to make tweaking and editing straight forward and simple
- content: 2.7gb
- format: Kontakt Player or Kontakt
- price: $163.70
How does it sound?
Honestly it sounds like some accordions!
This isn’t a sound design library so you don’t get any strange morphed instruments or soundscapes.
You get really great recorded accordion samples, that are playable and instantly tweakable.
I like that the smaller details are included like the button presses and releases, things that really make it sound authentic.
Other than that, everything is well recorded as usual, no artifacts or rouge imperfections, other than those intentionally captured for realism.
What’s the bottom line?
If you’re looking for accordion samples, this is one to check out for sure.
Not an “all purpose” library by any means, so you may or may not find use for it in your music.
But you know me, I like to checkout the “specialized” libraries as much as the more general instruments.
I give Accordions 4 out of 5 subs. I think the sound and play-ability is on point, and the interface is very well scripted for instant control.
As always, head on over and check it out for yourself: http://www.bestservice.de/detail1.asp/best_service/accordions/en
