Kvraudio.com, I learnt about samples.wavesfactory.com. This site that has a huge collection of very high quality well produced virtual instruments. These are created and categorised into many categories.
Very surprisingly, all the instruments are sold at an a price that is really value for money! For all the products I went through, every single one of them sells at a bargain of 9.90 Euros!
So here's for the sample-holic in all of us!
Instruments available are drumkits, percussions, guitars, basses, pianos, and very interesting collections like guitar harmonics, and very dirtied up pianos as they are heard, recorded on tape.
W-MrGroove. This is a collection of 128 drumkits for Native Instruments Kontakt. This is 339.2mb in size, and costs 9.95 Euros.
For this product, Wavesfactory has also put together a free version that consists of 15 kits totalling 28.5mb
Unlike their other products, this product does not have any audio demos because they want you to download and try the 15 free kits yourself!
