    Hey guys,
    you know to advise some Tap-dance instruments?

    Something like this
    thanks.

    p.s. I know maybe request for such a great and huge library like unbeatable "N"...:),
    but "N" is for me too pricey.

    I do not need so hard in this case true legato, but 6x rr will be handy...

    Not sure what you’re looking for. But I actually saw some MIDI tap shoes a while back. Lace ‘em up and do your own !

    exactly, I'm looking for tap shoes with metal sole taping on wood. There are many variations (in this type of dancing)
    and honestly I don't have much time with recording and editing samples, because I'm under pressure with deathly deadline...

    I once looked for something similar and found nothing. I can’t remember exactly what I did....some combo of perc, but it wasn’t fabulously convincing.

    If this was a non-commercial situation, I’d probably go the movie “The Cotton Club” and sample some of those taps which are in the clear. If it’s a commercial project, I think I’d find and hire a tap dancer or two.

    Or just go to a thrift store and grab some shoes to make your own instrument - I did that for a flamenco dance once and it worked out great.

    It seems that there is a gap in the market...
    when I sometimes have more time I know what to do, I'll be new developer:geek:
