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
Remember you can try it for yourself at try-sound.com also
leave a comment below, let me know what you think
Yo!!!! I may have to sample that first little Performance you did lol
@Nekkro99, hahahaha, you wild son! LOL
This is a really good accordion module! Thanks!
@Daniel Tonda, Indeed, thanks for watching, it sounds pretty cool I thought. Something different, and I like different.
Yep, it sounds very natural to my ears. There’s no many libraries dedicated to this instruments, I think. Personally I don’t know if I would be able to do something with an accordion(real or sampled) but for sure I’d recommend this one to anyone who need it. I mean sounds great!
@Angelinni, yeah it really sounds good. Like you said, if someone is looking for one, definitely should check this out.
Yo ! saint that library is crazy man. If you remember I’ve talked about something like this a few months or early in the year. Personally I don’t know about the other cats but if you are a producer in the south like Texas or Louisiana this would come in handy. Some places I play zydeco or Latin music. Latin peeps in the south love Cumbias.
@Dj jambone, yeah fam, it’s crazy for sure, sounds really good, it’s been out for a while but it’s new to me so, I had to show it lol
good stuff..thanx homes.
@sky, no doubt fam, thanks for checking it out
I like the range and flexibility of it! It sounds excellent and useable. Thanks for the review.
@Michael Parson-McNamara, cool, thanks for watching, I thought it was pretty interesting 🙂
SJ: I’m not into the accordion sounds,yet this add on seems to inspire me to change that thought. Another great review,& thanks for giving us the “peep”.
@Baddboy2000, yeah if you’re not into these sounds, it may not be interesting, I’m just a sound fanatic, you just never know lol, I really just thought it sounded so good I wanted to share it lol. Thanks for the comment fam!
