  • Little Boxes is a curated collection of four unique sound sets designed to compliment one another sonically and texturally. These textures move from acoustic to electroacoustic to analog synthesis – all programmed into beautiful Kontakt 4 instruments (full NI Kontakt
    4.2.3 or later required).

    Comes with the following four boxes:

    Box 1. Earthquake Detector:

    littleboxes earthquake detectorA small device meant to be hung flat on the wall, the balls will swing and strike the strings if the ground begins to move.
    This box was shaken, plucked, strummed, performed and ebowed to produce a beautiful palette of acoustic string textures.
    In Kontakt those sounds evolved into a group of instruments that ran from folksy, zither like patches to lush, shimmering pads.


     
    Box 2. Folktek Microgarden:
    micro gardenA handmade DIY electroacoustic device, this box is built by Arius Blaze at folktek and features a uniquely electric sound while still allowing for very expressive performances.
    Capable of percussion, pads, boings and buzzes, this is a unique and versatile box.
    In Kontakt the sounds evolved into an exotic group of instruments ranging from synth pads and percussion kits to vintage otherworldly sonic spectra.
    a truly unique piece.

     
    Box 3. MFO Weird Sound Generator:weird sound box
    A DIY analog synth built from a kit, this box yields a broad palette of thick, dynamic, chunky synth tones and evolving textures.
    After tweaking knobs and rolling for hours, each chunk of sound that made the cut was carefully edited, tagged, and then further sculpted to achieve its final state.
    In Kontakt a broad palette of luscious pads, thick warm basses, and polyphonic instruments emerged from the source textures.

     
    Box 4. Dementia Labs optical theremin:
    thereminA DIY circuit bent one-off custom theremin, this one features an elaborate unlabeled patchbay, a bunch of unlabeled knobs, and a light sensor as a modulator.
    This box yielded tons of static and crunchy textures, as well as some very retro sounding musical pads.
    The Kontakt patches turned into a pile of far out synths, analog crackles, and fuzzy goodness.

    Note: Can be used without Kontakt too!
    All Kontakt instrument libraries include fully unlocked and accessible metadata tagged .wav files. You don't need any version of Kontakt to use these files as a standalone sample library.

  • “Prepared Turntable” is a sound object library recorded by Marc Hasselbalch.

    Inspired by the sound artists who work with preparing and altering their instruments through the addition of external objects, this library is as much a useful pool of material for sound designers as it is a document of a sound object and the various nuances of circular, squeaking and screaming textures it produced.

    The primary preparation was to have various metal springs run across the vinyl record and record this in various ways, such as with the turntable’s own (broken, humming and hissing) pickup and contact microphones. Small nudges to the position of the springs and objects would result in very different timbres. Some rich in resonant, nuanced textures, some rich in metallic screams and howls.

    Other preparations done during recording: letting a credit card scrape freely across the record, attaching a contact microphone to the little comb from a discarded music box and letting that make contact with the record in various way – and more.

    Each take is about 60 seconds long to allow for the small, irregular nuances to reveal themselves. Some recordings reveal a great amount of irregular movement while some recordings have the objects settle a very hypnotic state. Presented rather raw without any intrusive, designed alterations.

    The recordings are offered in 96 kHz / 24 bit with UCS metadata.

  • The Burroughs Protectograph that we acquired was manufactured around the turn of the 20th century and had a single unique function – to stamp and emboss checks for banks. The Burroughs corporation has been around since 1886, and was an early force in the adding machine, check stamper and typewriter industries. This Protectograph version had an electric mechanism that would move large printheads down through a ribbon and would stamp a check hard and repeatedly for as long as the print key was held down. Our machine was acquired in perfect working condition.

    Its keys have a short through but a satisfying clack, and the punch mechanism is a huge whir stamp sound than can cycle if the punch button is held down. We rolled with the case both on and off, which revealed very different sounds from the main electric mechanisms.

    We ran the whole session with three perspectives miked up – front by the keys, in the back by the punch and a wide perspective perfect for bgfx placement. The front and back mics were Schoeps CMC6.MK4 and the wide mic was an AT 4050 in omni about 5 feet away. Listen to the straight examples give a clear accounting of the type of sounds we got from this machine, and the bent examples show what can really be done with those sounds and the Kontakt instrument.

     

    Key features for Burroughs Protectograph

    • 3 mic perspectives of each performance
    • 10 unique articulation groups
    • 10 + performances per articulation
    • 13 Kontakt .nki files (unlocked)
    • .nki files require full version of NI Kontakt 4 or higher
    • photographs and video stills

    Note: Can be used without Kontakt too!
    All Kontakt instrument libraries include fully unlocked and accessible metadata tagged .wav files. You don't need any version of Kontakt to use these files as a standalone sample library.
