Jazz Sample Libraries

Create authentic jazz tracks

 
  • Are you tired of the same lame, four-bar "swinging" jazz loop?

  • Do you need an upright that can convincingly walk basslines?

  • Have you felt stifled by orchestral horn libraries with all the wrong articulations, sound and feel?

We feel your pain. We created libraries to solve these problems. Now, bring jazz into your DAW for the first time.

SA! Bongos & Congas

SA! Bongos & Congas

An oft-overlooked pair of instruments in the sampled world. The creative team at Straight Ahead Samples had always longed for deeply sampled bongo and conga sets. Using the same technique that we created our drum libraries (long dynamic performance loops paired with thoroughly-sampled multi kits) we finally made our wish come true

SA! Brushes & Mallets

SA! Brushes & Mallets

Sister library of SA! Jazz Drums. Same concept of idiosyncratic jazz loops and a thoroughly sampled kit, this time featuring the swirling, delicate touch for ballads and softer settings.

SA! Bass

SA! Bass

Our focus on this one was similar to our drum libraries; the sound and the feel.  Deeply-sampled late-19th century German bass. Featuring our “Accented Legato” script; more than just stock legato transitions, this mimics the way  players truly move from note to note.

Straight Ahead! Jazz Horns

SA! Jazz Drums
