ChromaKey (VST/AU)

ChromaKey is a collection of sounds ported from our soundset for AAS Chromaphone. It features 60 patches divided in 6 categories: Keys, Pads, Plucked Strings, Sequences, Soundscapes, and Various. Chromaphone physical modelling synthesis combines acoustic resonators to produce dynamic and expressive sounds.
Despite Chromaphone tagline “creative percussion synthesizer”, ChromaKey focuses entirely on hybrid and organic melodic sounds.

Soundscapes Vol.2

Soundscapes, textures and ambiences ready to use as Kontakt instruments or WAV loops. These sounds are divided into four categories: binaural, concrete, inductor and piezo. As our previous version Soundscapes Vol.1, the samples were recorded in different places across the world (Las Vegas, Dublin, Prague, Naples, and Cosenza) using studio or portable equipment. We used different types of microphones, including handmade piezo and inductor mics, a large condenser microphone and a binaural microphone set. Everything was then processed and boxed inside a Kontakt instrument with a custom GUI. The pitch bend is assigned to a ±24 pitch transpose for glitch effects. All samples are seamless loops, so if you don’t have Kontakt you can load them directly into your DAW.

Strings (VST/AU)

Strings is a collection of sampled string instruments ported from our homonymic sampleset for iZotope Iris. This soundset includes synths, pads, soundscapes, drones, and many effects derived from strings samples. The sampled instruments were a Tenayo AutoHarp, a Romanian Toy Harp, a Baton Rouge Soprano Ukulele, a Chinese Violin, and a Squier Bass.

Pipes (VST/AU)

Pipes is a collection of instruments derived from a variety of cardboard tubes, aluminum spray cans, dreamcatchers, and PVC pipes. Even if the pitch of most of the sources is not stable, all instruments were manually tuned. Each instrument features from 3 to 6 Round Robin samples and up to 3 velocity layers. One of the main instruments is a sampled Wah Wah Tube (aka Vibratone): bell-like sound with a very long release and a dedicated control for overtones. There are a couple of sound designed patches derived from the original instruments along with Kontakt Multis ready to play.

Halloween Pumpkins

Halloween Pumpkins features samples and unusual sound design experiments with traditional Halloween pumpkins. You will find spooky bowed textures, creepy hits, plucked rubber bands, a fake transistor organ and of course an experimental impulse response of the inside of a large pumpkin. The pumpkins were sampled with two mics, a large diaphragm condenser mic and a piezo attached directly to the skin, then mixed to match the perfect eerie sound.

Toy Marimba

Toy Marimba features a small tuned percussion instrument made of rosewood and rope. This handmade toy instrument was found in a distressed state and some work was required to restore its original functionality. It was sampled with wood and bamboo mallets, with 3 Round Robin repetitions and 3 velocity layers for the main hits. Slides and glissandos (up/down with 3 speeds) are also included along with slowed down samples crafted for wooden and airy textures.

Pong Glockenspiel (VST/AU)

Why use sticks when you can use ping pong balls?
Pong Glockenspiel is a VST/AU sample-based plugin made by recording a toy glockenspiel played with ping pong balls. Two velocity layers (hard and soft) are cross faded to have a smooth transition while the 3 round robin (repetitions samples) avoid the “machine gun” effect of sampled instruments. There are also included two ambient instruments, two synth pad instruments and two slowed down instruments crafted using the original samples.

Organetta

The Organetta is a small portable reed organ made in the late 50s by the German company Hohner. The sound is generated by an electric fan that blows air into a set of brass reeds hence the sound is reminiscent of something in between a melodica and an accordion.
We sampled this little green friend with two mics: a large diaphragm condenser mic and a piezo attached to the chassis. The fan noise has been removed from the samples but you can choose to add it to the mix or play it alone by pressing the green keys. To add more realism we captured 6 round robin of the key down and up noises.

Glass

Found in a flea market, buried inside a box full of dust and cutlery, this balloon wine Glass has a bright and crystalline tone and long sustain. Hits were sampled with fingers, a piano hammer, a metal stick, and palm of the hand. Additional sounds produced with wet fingers on the border, small screws thrown inside the goblet, and processed slowed down hits for the atmospheric pads.
