A brush-set with a lot of different motions, great DW-toms, adjustable snarebuzz,lot of details.

2 PICCOLO BANK
Brushset 2 with a piccolo snare, different toms and kick.

3 TRAVEL BANK
A Yamaha acoustic with microphones built in.Very small but the best guitarIve sampled. Two layers with velocity switching and two layers with stringbuzz and fretnoises.Also features a Washburn semiacoustic bass with 3ghoststrokes and a palmslap on the lowest keys and fretnoises of course.Hasa soft acoustic sound.

4 DOBRODEMO
Two Dobros.One sampled with slide.Lots of samples of the slide accidentlyhitting the neck,buzzes and string noise. Also a vibrato noise sample thatonly sounds when modulation is applied.Strum samples (4) on the lowest keysfor comping.

5 ACCORDIONS
Three Accordions. Two very expensive ones with a lot of diamonds and stuffon them.Serinetto is the cheap one , that is suitable for zydeco, the PaoloSoprani and Bugari are more versatile and has layers with the different reedsin a accordion.Also samples of air, button in and button out. No keys onthese ones.

6 GRETCHBASS
This is a great Gretchbass.Semiacoustic and fretless. Sounds very 'live'whatever you play.Two layers with velocityswitching+noises andghoststrokes.

7 SVEN Z BANK
A song called 'Someones got his hands full of my wife', written for my bandSweet Pain.Sven Zetterberg sings as only he can and Anna Nederdal backs himup vocally.Includes a lot of very small sounds. The brass-section soundsreally crappy on its own but great in a context. Ensemble, trumpets and barytonin one instrument.The 'Martin' drums sounds very old and has a vinylnoisesample to make it sound like a loop.

8 BACKAS BASS
As my fingers are to weak I had to let BackaHans play the acoustic bass.There are 2 versions, the small one is just 150 bl but sounds good anyway.Has a very nice vibrato.Ghostnotes and a big palmslap.And a tiny 'stringhits the fretboard' sample , randommodulated key release.

9 SEDATION
When your dentist gives you a to strong sedative it could sound somethinglike this. Strange demo with a lot of very small sounds. Vocals by Eric Bibbin a gospellike vein. As with all demos,(exept 28-36) I always kept a 1,4MG limit.For the ease to demo the Ensoniq samplers.

10 ESTRAD 3
A very acoustic drumset sampled in the cellar of Estrad Musik.Four snarehits, two with rim.Two sidestick samples. Snare ruffs(tiny rolls).And a varietyof tom-hits.7 Hihatsamples.

11 TELEBANK
A Telecaster with two velocityswitched layers.Fretnoise and and four strumson the lowest keys.One of the strings is pitchmodulated by the mod-wheelto simulate the fender stringbender often used by country guitarplayers.Soundsvery nice with tremolo or distortion. To bad the Distorsion efx in the ASRarent to hot. However the Waweboy discs has some VERY useful distortionstogether with Delay AND reverb.Get it.

12 NEUSER BASS
A very hi-tech looking bass, violet in color and a very modern sound.Twolayer velocityswitch,ghostnotes,buzzes and a palmslap.Includes 'Ethnic skin',samples from a drum with cowhide I bought i Mozambique (I had some bluesgigs there, believe it or not) a small jazzy sounding drumset and a verysmall (82bl) velocityswitched rhodes.

13 JAZZGUITAR
I always wanted a jazzguitar, but every sampled one I heard was to clean.Iended up using my Firebird !!!??. ,heavy compression and the neck microphonedid the job.Noises and strums of course.Here is also a B-3 sampled with fastspeed, I then added some tremolo to deepen the leslie effect and to get thespeed more consequent ly spread across the keyboard.A small but very effectiveRhodes (537 bl), are sampled string sound,'Record Drums'was made to soundlike it is a loop when sequenced.'Budget Ac' is the small version of theBackaHans ac bass.

14 KING RHODES
On my own Rhodes the hammers dont always hit the tine properly, when youstrike the keys real hard.That reproduces a very short metallic sound thative never heard on a sampled Rhodes before. This is relly a MULTISAMPLEDRhodes, 128 samples in five layers. 4 layers of velocityswitched Rhodes.Almostevery white key is sampled at four different velocities.Every note soundsdifferent. If its to dirty for you,try turning of the fourth layer.

15 NYLON+RHODES
This is an old demo with Eqed Rhodes in two velocityswitched layers, it hasa pronounced bellquality to it.Good for the David Foster songs. The ac nylonguitar was the first one I sampled.The mike was a cheap blue Fostex. (I dontknow much about mikes ,I usually just go for it). The guitar has a lot ofhand percussion sounds and strums which is good when you want a rythm guitar.Youcan solo the guitar track and then youll hear what all the strums and percussionthings do for realism.'Voice Lead' is actuallly my own voice, synthesizedusing the Transwave parameters.

16 TO STEVIE
One of my favourite guitar sounds. This Stratocaster was hanging on the wallon Estrad Music and I recorded some notes to edit them ar home to see ifit was worth making an instrument of.
It sounded great but when I got back to the music store to do some real samplingit had been sold, so all I had was the four tryout samples.This guitar isthose four samples. They are sample Start modulated to get smooth transitionsin tone velocitywise.It has a really fat tone. In the first part of the demoits clean, in the second part a little distortion is applied, a little towardsClapton.This is an early demo when I didnt realize the importance of havingthe drums on track one,so its a little wobbly in the rythm section here.The'Mix String' I merged a Mirage String sample with an OBX patch from the trustyold DX 7. Sml 'SoulBass' is a mellow bass sound palyed on my ARIA bass witha sock under the string.

17 WURLIE 3 LAYERS
Three velocityswitched Wurlitzer layers. I added a sample of the inner mechanicson key release.Two versions depending on how much memory youve gotavailable.

18 SML 3 LYR RHODES
Two versions of this one to. Identical to the Wurlie above, but Rhodes..

19 ESTRAD RHODES
A rather crispy Rhodes even though its sampled straight. Two velocityswitchedlayers. Also featured is a Warwick fretless bass with the normal bass samplesas ghostnotes and buzzes

20 RICKENBACKER
I suddenly felt an urge to have a Rickenbacker with a slightly distortedsound so I went to Estrad and found a good one.Two velocityswitched layerswith the usual bass noises.In the demo the bass is fed thru the Leslie EFXfor a little chorused and distorted sound. This demo also has two synth soundsand some assorted percussion.

21 ERIC-HEAVEN
He is quite a singer ,Eric Bibb. He has just got a good record deal in Englandwith Warner and his latest album was produced by the legendary Mike Vernon.Here he is singing one of my songs. A lot of small sounds that could be usefull.Sub Bass is a very low synth bass the is more felt than heard. I resampledand merged some old favourite Pad Instruments and added som resampled stringsto make catchy ornaments, and theres also a SY 85 sopranosaxophone.
Plus some Beat Box and EFX samples.

22 SOFT AC SET
Bass and drum demo. The Music Man was sampled with the MM built in dampers.Smallrubber things under the strings.A good combination for soul songs.The drumshas the same layout and samples as 'Estrad III' drums.

23 METAL THUMBS
A hi-tech violet slapbass that is samplestart modulated. This is a greatfeature that does not work to well on the ASR, due to its slow filters.Thebass has section that is monophonic from the lox B to simulate hammeronswhich is a very important part of slapbass playing.Thumb ghostnotes on the4 lowest keys. Also an e.piano, distorted guitar and drums.

24 ZLICK STRAT
My first demo for 16+. A Talecaster played with my thumb for a very softattack. A second layer with harder struck strings.And the usual strums andnoises.A small B-3 is here to but there is a bigger and better version inthe organ section.

25 AC DRUM 2
Same layout and hits as Estrad 3 but a snappier set.

26 CROSSROADS
This one I had leave out because of copyright problems. I replaced it with'Elmores Broom'.

27 IN THE SIXTIES
Sort of looking back to the sixties sounds.Drums from an old record withan ambient feel.Equalized JazzBass, a nice brass section with muted horns,and two resampled Wurlitzers (they wre fed thru the Speaker Emulation andsampled again).These work great when you are short of memory or you wantthe Wurlie to sound like it came from an external speaker.Also a small Jazzguitarresampled thru the speaker emulator.

28 TELE BOSSA
Here comes some bigger demos featuring teh highlight sounds from the earlierdiscs. Telecaster, Estrad III drums, ac bass..etc.The Sizzle cymbals are9 samples of various strokes.A 22' ride cymbal I had drilled for holes.Ilove sizzle cymbals.

29 TAMBOURINE
A big (memorywise) tambourine. Shakes, two soft strokes,four hard strokes,and six right and left 'swings' to get the right motion.

30 ORGANDEMO 1
These samples comes from an earlier effort to sell sounds. They were allcontained in one 1.4 Mb disc and features 10 different registrations on aB-3 sampled thru a non motion leslie(just to get the sound of it) and applyingthe ASR Leslie simulator. This makes the orgens very small. The ASR Lesliehas a great sound but has a vibrato that is to big on the fast speed.To badits not programmable. The other Leslie EFX that came with 2.0 OS dont havethe same fat sound to them.Tremolo is on the modulation wheel.Release clicksis also there.'Smithfull' is a good representation of what can be done ifyou put your favourite organs in layers and vomumemodulate them with themodulation wheel, then you have the flexibility to change registrationsdynamically and have the percussion on the patch select buttons.
Here are also a drumset that sounds like an old loop, a slapbass with a muddyold seventies sound and here , the brass-section comes to its right.

31 ORGAN DEMO 2
A swing organ demo played mostly with big chords and fast leslie using the 'Smithfull' organ to show the smooth transitions between the registrations. And sizzle cymbals of course.

32 SLOW BLUES
Another Telecaster demo with more distortion and a sort of Stevie Ray kind of playing.( but Albert was first).

33 OLD STYLES
Another feature for the Dobro guitars , now with two Harmonicas. One sampledwith as close to the microphone as possible for use with some distortion. The other for more acoustic sounding harmonica. These are 'A' harmonicas thatare suitable to play in D,A and E. Every hole was sampled both in and out.

34 STEELGUITAR
Small steelguitarsounding instruments. The DX Steel comes from the DX 7 andthe other one was my Stratocaster sampled with a slide at the 12th fret. They both have a very slow attack when played softly to emulate the use ofa volume pedal. When struck hard they are normal. On the demo I use a volume pedal a lot. Here is the acoustic harmonica playing lead.

35 ELMORES BROOM
Dirty slide guitar from a Flying V. This is the guitar from the BB Kingdemo (could not include that for copyright reasons). The Garage Set was sampled at a warehouse in Gothenburg along time ago.

36 MR RACKJAZZ
I sampled a few sounds from the MR 76.The Tenor sax has som added air samplesas do the Mute Trumpet. The sax also have button klicks.The drumset includes various GM mapped percussion. The ac bass is a manipulated factory sound.
