Hello good people!

Today we are proud to announce the release of our newest free Kontakt Library which will not be available on our download page for a few weeks, giving you a good early start.

The Full Bongo Kit!

The Full Bongo Kit offers you 8 velocity layers with 6 round robins each layer. Crescendo and drumming patches and features a truly random RR script which ensures that real human sound.

This library has over 240 samples and a very wide range of sounds built from a 5" and 6" bongo clay drum, which is of African design from 1971! Time has not worn it's sound which has a sharp and pristine sound to it with the higher velocity layers offering a really crunchy texture.

Download the library and try it out and let us know what you think!

Commets/concents/suggestions all welcome at samples[at]symphonyofspecters.com

Join our newsletter and get this stuff before everybody else! Click here for exclusive news and give aways!

Take care!

The Symphony of Samples Team



Hail good people!

Over the past couple months we at SoS have been very busy with a few things. Along the way we realized that over the years we have all been fortunate to be able to use what we use. We've all had a chance to earn our stripes and buy our weapons but not everybody can afford to buy such tools.

So we decided to try and change that in our own little way, by pooling our resources together and creating some samples packs and libraries for the masses! These libraries and packs are free for commercial and personal use alike with the only condition being that you are not allowed to sell these packs and to give credit where possible.

You can visit this link by visiting our website Symphony of Specters and visiting the Download section, or by going straight to the download page here

These packs are for musicians mostly right now, but we have some sound effects coming up too so developers will want to sign up to our newsletter as well!

We hope you find these tools useful.

Have an idea or request on what kind of instrument/sfx you'd like to see up there? Hit us up with an email to samples@symphonyofspecters.com.

Take care!

Free sample libraries and packs for commercial use!


Epos out! The making of it's Audio!

2010-06-28 16:50:31 by SoS
Updated

Epos has been released today and we at Symphony of Specters are very excited to see it out on the wild! I wanted to take a bit of time to talk about the audio for Epos, as it is by far our biggest and most diverse project yet! The members who were involved were

Charles Evans For Music
Zach Striefel For Sound Effects
David Orr For Music
Selcuk Bor Getting coffee and doing sounds and music to fill in gaps. Damn fine coffee though.

Together we were able to create over 8 minutes of audio, hundreds of sound effects, and even the little jingle for MINTGames (I thought that was fun, did you think it was fun? That was fun). We were way over our size limit so we couldn't shove in more audio goodness but the incredible visual and flowing game play more then makes up for it.

So go play it! Enjoy it! Savor it! Ask us anything, we will pretend like we know. Unless we actually know then we can answer. Ask audio questions if you want answers in the know.

Seeking sound designers!

2010-03-22 13:17:34 by SoS
Updated

We at Symphony of Specters are currently looking for sound designers to work on future titles with us. If you're a sound designer at heart or want to get into this industry we'd like to hear from you!

About us.
We're a freelance custom audio team geared towards the flash and indie market. We've been operating here for years and are expanding our team to tackle more jobs at a higher grade of professionalism. Which is where you come in!

Job requirements:
- To make sound effects for games in a reliable and quick fashion. Not all sounds need be from scratch. Modification of existing sounds is acceptable where appropriate (I don't expect you to make a river sound from scratch, but I do expect you to modify it if necessary)
- Flexible schedule. Though we don't intend to throw you into a 1 day order, sometimes short orders are requested and sounds have to be done quickly.

What you can expect from us:
- Non exclusive access to your material. Many jobs will ask for non exclusive use of the sounds you make, all rights are reserved with it's creators. You are free to keep and modify/re-use any and all sounds you make. At no point do we at SoS make claim on them and at no point will you have to surrender them to us.
- Depending on your rate, you will be paid for your work! Since material is prepared under a non exclusive contract, you can continue to keep earning by selling the material under the marketplaces we operate under. You will keep what your material earns. We keep a 10% buffer in order to further our marketing funds and investments.

If you're interested, please send an email to jobs[at]symphonyofspecters[dot]com with a bio, what you would expect in terms of compensation. Demo reels are a plus. We will discuss further details about the position then.

Take care,

~ Selcuk "MaestroRage" Bor.

Unveiling new custom audio company logo + Primary Game Release

2010-02-15 03:59:59 by SoS
Updated

First, after close collaboration with a very talented Marissa Rivera, I would like to unveil the new logo for the company (see below)! What do you guys think of it?

This particular logo is one that will be put on our demo album release and all sorts of pretty places. We chose to go with such an elaborate logo because we felt a logo that felt like a game, would connect with game developers better. Our audio is very strongly focused in the flash scene and gaming so this was a logical step.

Secondly, the Power of 3 game that we have had the honor of working on will come out to the world wide web very soon, we're talking, early this week soon. We've gotten a lot of positive feedback on this title and both JackSmack and FrozenFire spilled their hearts out on it.

Jump onto JackSmack's profile for more information plus a chance to test out the demo!

It should be on Newgrounds shortly after release.

If you need custom audio for your project feel free to visit our site and drop us an email! Hoping to hear from you guys!
