I made the mistake of using the Olafur Arnalds Chamber Waves in a project where my intentions were to stay out of the box as much as possible. We all know how beautiful those samples are, so replacing the samples was a difficult task. I grabbed a student violin and a handmade Native American flute and did my best to match the rise and fall of the Chamber Wave samples as best I could.

My samples have a similar behavior but the tight sound and texture of the instrument is quite different from the Chamber Waves. The magic is in the pitched down samples in the lower registers. I also sampled a long sustain, drone performance. Both dry and echo/reverb versions are included. The samples were recorded with a Neumann KM84 and a pair of Coles 4038’s.

Really quite a lovely sound. The sustained and waves versions work so well together.

It’s blown my mind how awesome it sounds.

What can I say, just so many things it inspires in me in these samples. Started trying it out and just got totally lost in the sound. Took me an hour to break free and say thank you thank you
