Karoryfer Lecolds presents a collection of sample libraries. We currently have two commercial releases - a guitar and a drum kit - plus 21 libraries you can download for free. The primary platform we use is the free Plogue sforzando sampler, although most of our instruments include all samples as wav files so you can use them in any sampler of your choice.
Secret Agent Guitar: A virutal guitar with personality, this library contains over 1000 samples of a bizarre hollowbody electric made in Poland in the 1970s. Can be used as 6-string or 12-string. Price: $39.
Swirly Drums: You get brushed drums with snare stirs and flutters that are flexible and controllable, a hi-hat with six degrees of openness, and extra kit pieces like China crash, brushed darbouka, and a cajon used as a kick. Instruments for both Plogue sforzando and NI Kontakt. Price: $29.
Our free libraries are:
Gogodze Phu Vol I: Download
A percussion collection with five bobobo drums from Ghana and a cajon recorded in Poland.

We started creating sample libraries for use in our own various projects. We are focusing on instrument libraries and virtual singers, rather than loop libraries or construction kits.
Our free sample libraries can be downloaded directly from this site - no registration, like or donation required. Most of these samples have a CC-BY attribution, but we only want attribution if you're going to redistribute these samples as samples or as part of larger sample libraries. If you are using them in tracks, feel free to ignore the attribution part with any of the instrument libraries.
