  • A killer antique accordion full of paper crinkles, key clacks, sick sounding wheezes and old wood creaks. The antique accordion was rescued from a local antique shop. It has a hole in the bellows that creates a distinct wheezing sound, and it is loaded up with strange squeaks, pops and paper textures.

    We rolled on this instrument for about an hour, and did everything from flicking the keys to dropping and pounding it. The accordion took some abuse, but in the end what it gave back was a wealth of old sounding textures you can’t fake.

    This instrument was recorded at 24 bit 96k, in dual mono – with an AT4050 for a wide perspective and a Schoeps CMC6.MK4 for a close perspective. Comes with 57 .wav files and 19 Kontakt .nki files (the .nki files require the full retail version of NI Kontakt 4.2.3 or later)

    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.

  • City Life Baltic Quad Surroundings Play Track 33 sounds included, 155 mins total $69

    Baltic Quad Surroundings captures the urban sounds of Riga city and its adjacent suburban and rural areas, located in the Baltics, Northern Europe. A Quadraphonic library for your next surround work. Takes are approximately 4 to 5 minutes long or even longer, so that should cover the majority of movie scenes. Please listen to the stereo samples, or download the Quad samples to hear full potential of these recordings here: Quad Recordings Demo

    Since this is our first release, we are also adding a free bonus micro library with quad recordings of passing trains that we encountered during the recording sessions. Enjoy!

    Recorded with a spaced Quadraphonic omni setup.

    The recordings were done in early spring when vegetation has not yet grown leaves, to avoid unnecessary noise pollution. Some recordings are made at night to keep bird activity to a minimum.

    This is the first library that results from a steady need for authentic and realistic surround backgrounds.

    The most common problem we have with surround sound libraries is that they are too exotic, or have too much activity. So, we took matters into our own hands and started to explore different surround recording techniques. Our recordings can be used as a surround soundscape “beds” or layers. This allows controlled additions of other elements to build up the scene and keep the viewer’s focus on the storyline.

    The goal was to record diffused sound field atmospheres and that is where a spaced Quadraphonic Omni setup shines. Human hearing does not rely only on level differences across the frequency spectrum – in fact, our auditory system heavily relies on the difference of sound wave arrival time to each ear. This is especially important with frequencies below 800 hertz.

    So spaced microphones result in more believable sound field recordings than point source recording techniques like MS or other compact systems. The phase is also not an issue, it even decreases as microphones get placed even further apart. The only downside to this technique is the big and bulky rig and that it requires individual wind protection for each microphone.

    Our future goal is to add a dedicated center channel to the recording rig and to start building up way bigger and more sophisticated libraries. Stay tuned for future releases!

  • 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!
