Kontakt / EXS24 / Gigastudio 2
The B.O.B. Miscellaneous Instruments collection is a set of sounds which I did not feel comfortably fit into the other B.O.B. categories, you can think of them as 'left-overs' if you wish, but don't be fooled -there are some real gems in here.
Two sounds in this set were used on both a Grammy and Indie winning recording. The Grammy went to James Taylor for his HOURGLASS recording in the 1998 Grammy Awards for Best Pop Album and for Best Engineered Album. James used the Electric Guitar Volume Swells on the first track entitled Line 'Em Up. The INDIE went to Silver Wave recording artist Joanne Shanendoah for’ Peacemaker’s Journey’ in 2001 for ‘Native American Album of the Year’, the recording was produced by Tom Wasinger. The Monochord sample set was used on this recording.
You'll notice the accordion set and the wind chime set have been omitted from the Kontakt and EXS versions. I did not fell the quality was 'up to par' with the others in the collection. If you need these 2 instruments, on this website a Button Accordion and Wind Chime demo set are available as a FREE download, and the quality is very high indeed!
