Sherman Oaks, CA, October 2010.....Film and TV composer Glenn Jordan has integrated the new Gen16 Digital Vault into his Los Angeles project studio.
The veteran composer, whose credits include stints as musical director for Pee Wee's Playhouse, productions for artists ranging from Grace Jones and Little Richard to Shari Lewis, and numerous hit TV series including The X Files, Millennium and The Lone Gunman, has been integrating the acclaimed sample library into virtually all of his recent projects.
"Until now, cymbal sounds have been the weak link in virtually every sample library I've ever tried," says Jordan. "Traditionally, cymbal samples have always lacked a certain realism, particularly in capturing the natural ambiance and decay of the cymbal. With this new Gen16 Digital Vault, Zildjian has solved that problem, and solved it well."
Gen16's digital Vault offers authentic, high-resolution acoustic samples of the company's most coveted, exclusive master "reference" cymbals, along with rare, limited-edition cymbals never available to the public. Each cymbal has been hand-selected by Zildjian's Master Cymbal Tester Paul Francis from the "cymbal vault" at the company's Norwell, MA workshop, and meticulously recorded by percussion sampling guru John Emrich.
"I have to congratulate Zildjian for doing a great, great job," says Jordan, "and I'm really looking forward to the next library collections they'll be adding to the Digital Vault line."
