I was thinking about composing some seasonal music so I need some christmas sounds for the next time. I mean these typical bells, shakers, etc. Which program has some or are there any samples for free? And if yes – how do I open them?
Have a nice evening, Crian
You can search them on Google writing “bells wav”. There are some sites with free sounds. Enjoy
Thank you! How do I get them into Cubase? Like I play the note “A1” and it plays the bell in A1?
Well, this case is different cause wav sounds are good not for playing note but just as they “sound”, if you need different note you should have a plug-in within a “kit of bells” for example..
Christmas bells are relatively easy to synthesize… But you can always search in google ‘bells soundbanks’ for realistic bells or ‘bells [your vst] presets’ for synthesized. Good luck HO-HO-HO !
Which version of Cubase are you using? As far as I recall, versions 4 and up come bundled with a sampler (HalionOne) that has a variety of bell sounds. Hope that helps.
I believe you might want some SLIEGH BELLS , some GLOCKENSPIEL , Maybe some CHIMES ? . You’ll need a sample library that includes these things. I use Virtual Drumline – Lots of different percussion sounds in there.
Thank you for all your answers!Well I don’t know which Cubase version I actually have – it’s a very old sequencer my father bought about 5 years ago, haha. So unfortunately there is no Halion integrated. Well the bells, etc. is not such a big problem, I need this typical “schschschschsch” used in all christmas songs, you know. Sorry for the Justin Bieber Example but I mean the sound at the beginning starting at 0.00 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qjeesLtahks I can’t find something like this on my sound librarys, i have EastWest Stormdrum and Morphestra that own a percussion section ..
