The GSM Cyprus package contains four Sampler Instruments for Logic’s EXS24, Native Instruments Kontakt, and Ableton’s Sampler. The four instruments bundled inside are the Santuri, the Bouzouki, the Rockenspiel, and a Cypriot percussion file comprised of three drums; the Darbuka, the Davul and the Bendir. The audio samples for each instrument are all .wav files, formatted at 48kHz, 24bit, and have all been professionally processed – ensuring every instrument is to a high quality standard.
Also included in our Cypriot sample package, you will find over 60 minutes of environmental recordings from across the island, all recorded, produced, and available to download in 96kHz, 24bit .wav format. From bustling city centers to deserted beaches, we’ve attempted to capture Cyprus at its most urban and its most natural.
Lastly, we’ve also bundled together 220 loops at varying tempos, all produced at 48kHz, 24bit .wav format. Some of these loops originate from performances that we captured during our time in Cyprus, and others have been generated by our team of engineers and producers, with the aim of delivering audio materials that are sonically rich and entirely transferrable between musical genres.
Rhys specialises in electronic music, namely the genres hip-hop, trap and drum and bass, and he recently graduated from a three-year music production course at UCLan in Preston. Notable for its percussive melodies and distinctive upbeat rhythms, Rhys’s music has a progressive quality that tends to arise through the layering of various timbres weaving in and out of one another, often developing into intriguing and beautiful soundscapes.
In ‘Another Ceiling…’ I aimed to create three compositions that captured the sonic characteristics of both the Uganda and the Cyprus packs whilst pushing the material to use them in unique and interesting ways. Additionally, I intended to subtly showcase the capabilities of the instruments within the context of my own work.
