Snares which are huge, monstrous, organic and alive. Just like Dr. Viktor Frankenstein tried to put together the best parts of various humans, Frankensnare lets you create your own snares from a wide array of acoustic snare samples, ranging from a tiny 10" snare to a 20" giant, and also including the mad science "sympathy snares", which are recordings of a kick drum making six snares buzz sympathetically at once. There are also several varieties of claps, guitar chiks, and a tambourine. It all adds up to more than 2000 total samples.

Snares sampled:

  • 10"x6" ash snare: brushes and sticks
  • 12"x5" steel snare
  • 14"x5" maple snare: brushes and sticks
  • 14"x6.5" maple snare: normal and muted
  • 14"x8" aluminum snare: center hits and rimshots
  • 14"x8" birch snare
  • 18"x16" prepared birch tom
  • 20"x6" poplar snare: brushes, sticks and prepared
  • sympathy snare with 20"x20" kick
  • sympathy snare with 22"x16" kick

We came up with the concept for this while working on a track for a singer, and realizing that layering electronic snare samples for a huge sound is easy, but layering acoustic snares isn't nearly as convenient unless you use one-shot samples and therefore give up round robins, velocity layers, and all the organic nature of a well-sampled acoustic snare. Frankensnare lets you layer acoustic snare samples quickly and easily in one instance of a single plugin. It's the best of both worlds - the organic responsiveness of a well-sampled acoustic snare, and the power of a layered electronic snare.

Requires Plogue Sforzando version 1.933 or newer, which can be downloaded for free from Plogue's website. All the samples are also included as unlocked WAV files, so you can also use them as one-shot samples etc. if desired.
