What about samplefusion? They have some great ethnic drums and percussion, along with tons of other stuff. Plus its free if you've bought fl studio or any of their plugins.

Try combining any average synth with distortion effects, it's fun.

I think it is time for an OVERCOAT PROTIP:

If you're looking for a sound and already have a few synths and effects, make combinations of stuff you already have! You can play around with something like Synth1 for hours and not get bored. Actually I ended up writing a song by just doing that, more than once.

Though I do have good synth recommendations for you. In fact, they're right in the first post:
http://www.novakill.com/killerz.htm

Distorted, ugly sounds right out of the presets. I've used most of the novakill synths in at least one song and I think they're okay. He seems to have taken most of the older synths offline, but most of the old Novakill synths were very similar anyway.

Is there a soundfont with a solo gong that's good?
Hi! I may not be active, but I'm a remixer. I generally do not quite intend on realism, but I do use Schism Tracker to remix stuff.

samplefusion DOES have some good free downloads if you register your copy of FL, but you can only download the samples that are under 10MB I believe. Recently, they put up the option to buy all 17 CD's for $99, whereas they are somewhere around $25-$35 individually. That's a GREAT offer, and you get a TON more awesome (and better organized) samples than if you just go the free route.

Trust me on that. I know from experience. I downloaded EVERY available free sample, and there was a TON of stuff I missed until i splurged. :)

I've been searching for a cheesy brass/band shot sample like you'd frequently hear in the Jet Set Radio Future soundtrack (example).

Anyone know of such a sample (or how I might emulate it)?

Ultimate Guitar Kit 2 (~28mb sf2)

Have a free guitar soundfont. I got this off of The Auditorium before they neutered the sample section of their forums. I don't recall who the original author was, though.

In any case, enjoy.

Using presets on a sampler is as bad as using presets on a synthesiser. What people should learn to do is collect their own soundbank of samples. Using sampled acoustic instruments like orchestras/pianos only creates a demonstation/draft of what it could sound like. Best thing to do is use what you have to your best ability, wanna do strings but can't get a string orchestra? Forget it. Just work with sounds you can get, if something sounds cool, record it! Percussive sounds from hitting metal/plastic/glass objects. Process the sounds however you want, then you'll have some original sounds! This is what any good producer does. Sampled acoustic sounds don't give an accurate representation, its just a glorified midi file at the end of the day.

oh ok. cuz for a second there I was about to use a sampled piano in a song I was working on here. thank heavens you posted!!!! now instead, I can record an 80 year old quadraplegic wrapped in celophane farting into a phonograph with a tape recorder on the other side. and use it in my song. it'll be great.

thanks mairuzu! you have shown me the light. because god forbid i don't have a $30,000 grand piano and a $50,000 studio to record it in, and lord knows a soundfont might not give an accurate representation!

If you utilising the sound of an 80 year old quadraplegic wrapped in celophane farting into a phonograph with a tape recorder on the other side and made somethin interesting that would be the epitomy of electroacoustic music.
Just because you don't have a $30,000 piano and a $50,000 studio doesn't mean you can't make music. All i'm saying is music production is about utilising what you have and use it to it full potential.
Using a soundfont of a piano is just a draft and can could possibly give performers and listeners an idea of what the piece would sound like, but it could never be taken seriously.

Maybe not by you, but I can use soundfonts seriously.

This isn't a joke tune, is it?

But of course that's electronic music, not exactly meant for live performance [though I can totally do it!]

Soundfonts/samples that are trying to be an instrument can never be one, only a representation. And other sounds through soundfonts can be taken seriously, but its not your unique sound. You'll sound just like everone else using soundfonts on the internet. If you collect your own sounds and don't share them with anyone else, you'll have your own sound. Akira Yamaoka has his own sound, but hes a sound designer aswell as a composer. I admit to using some samples myself, but thesedays if I do use any sounds which are available to more people than myself I try to process them so they sound very different. Especially with drumkits, thousands of people use the same kits, process all the sounds indivially until it doesn't sound like a kit, it sounds original.

You can't make them yourself?

Reverse a cymbal sample or something

You can also use pretty much any synth with an LFO or pitch envelope to make sweepy noises

In addition to Overcoat's mad sweep strats, if you are using Fruityloops, bust out wave traveller with a pad sample. Just fiddle with the curve of the line, and you should end up with a preety neat "HEY GUYZ THIS NEXT BIT IS IMPORTANT K?" type thing fairly fast.
