Neocymatics Sample Libraries

Neocymatics-logoNeocymatics ist ein relativ junges Unternehmen aus Griechenland, dass bisher 2 Sample Libraries  herausgebracht hat. Dabei handelt es sich um die „Hybrid Strings“ und „The Clarinet Collection“. Da Neocymatics im deutschsprachigen Raum scheinbar noch recht unbekannt ist, will ich die beiden Produkte hier kurz vorstellen:
