  • Let’s continue our scientific journey into experimental-impulse-response research. This time around, we have developed a technique to produce outstanding rhythmic reverb spaces; utilizing intense frequency and amplitude modulation synthesis with the touch of granularity.

    Some of them resulting in the most vivid and lush ambiences you could imagine, other with glitchy stuttery twists. Sounds that are truly out of this world, that can yet be tamed to fit your reality. Our impulses will reverberate clearly in your convolution reverb engine, without any harsh resonances or struggles with equalisation.

    They are like pieces of glass, beautiful and clean with outstanding shapes and textures, yet coloured if need be. Trust your ears, these spatial shapes can be what it takes to transform your tracks into cinematic wonders or completely reinvent them as spatial masterpieces.

    Details:

    • 64 impulse response samples
    • 48khz / 24bit wav files
    • Compatible with any convolution-reverb software
    • WAV + ReFill version (for Propellerhead Reason 8.3+ with 64 Combinator & RV7000mk2 patches)

  • • Harmonic Series Drones is an extension of several of my music compositions. Over the past few years, I've been very interested in data sonification, writing several pieces that turn real-time weather data into music. This library was created using a drone generator that turns weather data into sound. I built this drone generator for my piece Sitka for piano and seasonal electronics.

    • Instead of pulling weather data from Sitka, Alaska, as I did in the piece, I used 2016 daily temperature data from the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, a fragile place wrapped up in current political drama and now open to drilling. This library is a sonification of 2016 temperature data in ANWR. The highest global temperature on record was recorded in 2016 (2016 Global Climate Report). It is even worse in the Arctic where temperatures are warming at twice the rate of lower latitudes (2016 Arctic Report Card). With this library, you'll be able to hear the warming, and I hope this library helps to draw attention to the rapidly changing environment of the Arctic.

    • Each of the forty-eight drones corresponds to the average temperature of a day in 2016, with twelve drones from each of the four seasons. The drones are built from pure tones made from tightly filtered pink noise. These pure tones are then stacked in harmonic series relationships. For instance, a winter drone might consist of the fundamental and four lowest partials. A summer drone could have the fundamental and partials seven, fourteen, and thirty-two.

    • The drones stand on their own without the story. If you never knew they started with weather data, you would still find a variety of pure, rich, microtonal drones with enough variety to fit the mood of any project.

    2% FOR THE ENVIRONMENT:
    • Two percent of the price of this library is donated to an environmental cause. I view it as an “artist royalty” for the planet!

    KEY FEATURES:
    • All files are sample seamless loops. So, there are no fade-ins and outs and the files are ready for looping in any DAW.
    • Consonant and dissonant drones
    • Simple and complex drones
    • Each of the 48 drones is between 1 and 1.5 minutes in duration
    • Non-periodic undulating drones
    • Each harmonic has a randomized gain, so the drones pulse non-periodically.
    • Drones were made from tightly filter pink noise, so drones have a small amount of soothing and airy pink noise.
    • Microtonal harmonic series relationships create beautiful beating between drone harmonics.
    • All drones have a fundamental of G1 (49Hz). Transpose them as needed to fit any project.
    • Partials are included in the metadata, for example, “fundamental_G1_harmonics_1_2_3_4_7_16”.
    DATA SONIFICATION:
    • Weather data included in the Soundminer Description and BWAV description fields.
    • Temperature data was translated as a combination of lowest harmonic, number of harmonics, and highest harmonic.
    • Generally, lower temperatures include bass harmonics and higher temperatures include treble harmonics. For example, the hottest day of the year only included harmonics 18 and 24.
    • Location: weather data is from the NOAA station at Helmut Mountain, Alaska in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

  • Make room for our groundbreaking Impulse Responses library! Yes, we are serious, it’s the high quality collection of experimental convolution samples that could easily, if unchecked, contradict the laws of physics and nature. These impulses were recorded and deeply-processed to create reverb tails with unique characteristics as well as creative effects that are not accessible or easily simulated in any other way. Prepare yourself for an immersive experience of sonic trickery applied throughout the included material.

    We dive right into additive synthesis, to generate chord and tonal effects, then we throw away the rulebook for pitch-shifting and time-stretching, then we go even further with glitch-like effects; finally, we manipulated the timbres in combination with custom rhythmic-noise generation tools to create the extraterrestrial atmospheres that will let you turn any material into a completely unique experience.

    These samples, are designed to be user-friendly, no unwanted resonances; but in the hands of the professionals, these deep impulses can be the new edge for mixing and sound design. Creating Hollywood-style cinematic-effects, futuristic-glitches and ambience goodness, was never so easy. Just drag, drop and feel the air shake.

  • Have you heard about fractals, if so then you probably know that they can be used as art; to an almost-infinite detail creating mind boggling patterns. Luckily, it so happens that one of our core team sound-designers is also a well known fractal artist.

    With the help of “photo-synthesis” and “spectral-manipulations”, we extracted the unique impulse responses straight out of some of the most mathematical pieces of art we have ever seen. These visually insane patterns resulted in some truly unique sonic experiences, which we have been unable to find anywhere else. More importantly, now you can add an extra layer of complexity and dimension to your sound with the easy-to-use impulse responses.

    These are not the typical reverb tones that can be found or created, in most already-existing convolution reverb plugins.

    Think about these Mathematical Impulse Responses, as unique effects and textures, a sound designer’s’ paradise. Make your math-rock mathematically richer than ever before, or give your EDM a new harmonically otherworldly twist, go where you want to go without the fear of being held back by the tools you use.

  • Let’s step into the wonderful world of classic hardware reverbs. The Lexicon legends; the 960, the 480L, the PCM90 and so forth used in thousands of tracks across tens of thousands of albums, and a number of the world’s’ greatest hits. Everyone knows what’s special about them, and how good they sound. We just love the natural beauty of the “Lexicon 960”, “Lexicon 480L” and “Lexicon PCM90”.

    However, instead of giving you our sampled Impulse Responses from those marvelous pieces of audio engineering, we decided to step up the game and combine them into one new device. All three of them were combined into one product, thanks to the use of FFT algorithms and complex audio processing aimed for precision and sound quality.

    The final result is just astonishing, we named it “Lexi”; a new hybrid with a natural and richer sound that keeps the warm tonal character of the classics. Our team also couldn’t resist to the temptation to push our audio-processing scripts to the limits, so you not only get the great sounding regulars, but also a few of the modern (both brighter and way deeper) Impulse tones that those original devices couldn’t produce. Now it’s your turn to decide which way you use them. Will it be the remaster of a classic rock song or the new EDM club hit? The decision is truly yours.

  • Fire Small Fires Play Track 46 sounds included, 43 mins mins total $40

    This library was made for the small stuff.  I have always had a hard time finding small fire sounds.  I work mostly in games, and trying to find a small fireplace sound, or torches on the wall in a castle, or perhaps a candle or oil lamp sound, are impossible to find in commercial libraries!  I've always been unhappy with what I had to make for those elements.  So, I went to work getting small and delicate fire sounds.

    It took multiple field recording trips using a variety of different materials to find the best small fire sounds.  Finally, after a lot of hard work (and smoke to the lungs), here is the Small Fire SFX Library!

    • Small fires with a variety of different materials including cloth, cotton, hand sanitizer, a multitude of different woods, Vaseline, and pure alcohol

  • Materials & Texture Slime Play Track 949 sounds included, 72 mins total $30

    Viscous materials are probably one of the more common elements that come up on a regular basis, and one of the grossest to record. Let me save you the trouble. Slime is a collection of different Viscous materials ranging from literal slime to more abstract slime-like sounding materials like rubber.

    One of the featured sounds of the library is a gallon of slime being tossed around, man-handled, and squished.

    All the items in this collection were recorded at 192khz with a Sanken CO100k, so there's a lot of flexibility to be had pitching and manipulating the sounds.

    Before you stick your hand in that jar of mayo, give the demo a listen. It might just save you some time, and smelling like a sandwich the rest of the day.
