Loopmasters Zen Ambient MULTiFORMAT | 881 Mb
'Zen Ambient' has been created exclusively for Loopmasters by Ralph Cree. The pack features an ethereal collection of loops and one-shot samples of Tibetan Singing Bowls, Crystal Bowls, Chimes, Bells, Gongs, Frame Drums, Melodic Tank Drum (metal tongue drum), Sansula (thumb piano), Piano, Field Recordings and a touch of chilled vocals.
The instruments belong to Jim Fox and Kiera Jones (from The Centre, Swansea) and were recorded by Ralph Cree and Dizzi Dulcimer on a Rode NT2 Microphone, and an AKG C1000S Microphone. Many of the loops feature extended tails to allow each instrument to decay to its full extent and are best used across two audio tracks in your DAW alternating between each track, this way you keep the natural resonance running into the next bar as the loop ends.
Ralph Cree has been performing drums, World percussion and piano since 1991. He has a degree in World Music from the School of Oriental and African Studies (University of London) and has played with artists such as Chris Martin, Ben Waters and BiggaBush. He runs a 20 piece Samba band called "The Magic Drum Orchestra" and records his own solo work under the name "Undulus". Ralph plays Hang and Hammered Dulcimer in an acoustic duo with his wife, Dizzi Dulcimer under the name "The Crees".
