A 1-shot sample taken of a 17-inch diameter Zildjian Medium Thin Crash cymbal, recorded with an MXL 603 close-mic and two Peavey electret condenser microphones in an XY pair. The cymbal has a hairline crack beneath the bell region, which mostly only affects the sound when the edge is crashed at high velocities. The files are all 200,000 samples in length, and crossfade-looped with the loop range [150,000...199,999]. Samplers with .WAV file header support should automatically detect the loop range. Just enable looping, set the sample player's sustain parameter to 0% and use the decay and/or release parameter to fade the cymbal out to taste.
Notes for samples in this pack:
