KAMBANITE Church Bells
Over 100 deeply sampled playable bells from around the world! Suitable for any kind 
of music production this one of a kind collection is full of inspiration and never 
before heard sounds.

Kambanite Church Bells was a very interesting, one-of-a-kind project for us. The 
name "Kambanite" (transl. "The Bells") comes from a unique Monument and park 
located in the outskirts of Sofia. The side has a rich cultural and historic 
heritage - in 1979 the UN declared that this will be a "year of the children" and 
the Bulgarian Minister of Culture at the time arranged and founded an International 
Assembly "Banner of Peace" - a festival dedicated to children's art with the moto 
"Unity, Art, Beauty". This children's assembly became one of the most recognizable 
international symbols of Bulgaria for people in and out of the Eastern (Communist) 
Block.

The "Kambanite" Monument was built in 1979 to commemorate the newly founded 
International Assembly "Banner of Peace" and has been its symbol eversince. The 
structure itself is 37 meters high and features 7 bells placed in a hollow sphere, 
representing the planet Earth and the 7 continents united - a symbol of peace.
The park around the Monument was designed to become a "home" for bells, donated and 
gifted from countries and governments all around the world, the majority of which 
were brought and presented by the children participating in the Assembly. Currently 
there are more than 107 bells in the park, each of them with its own voice. We were 
eager to capture and sample that immense diversity of voices and create a unique 
deeply sampled bells library, so that the music from "Kambanite" could be shared 
back with the world.

Each of the bells featured in the library has a specific pitch. However, since we 
wanted to create playable patches for each bell, we used a fair amount of 
processing to make this happen. The original pitch of each bell is marked on the 
keyboard with the yellow/green color within the green section. The green section 
itself represents the octave which is covered by stretching the original sample. In 
order to cover a wider range, the original pitch
sample is also transposed 1 octave up, and 1 and/or 2 octaves down, giving you 4 
octaves in total to create music with. Each bell was recorded in 2 dynamic layers 
and with 2 round robins.
