Little Boxes

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!

The tonal palette of one instrument fits like a puzzle piece into the sound of the others.

Each deeply expressive, these instruments compliment each other in both musical and sound design contexts.

All of these instruments were miked or directly recorded in MONO, providing for thick, punchy recordings. The Kontakt instruments break the sounds into stereo however, and push the source material much deeper into its potential.

echo | collective

echo | collective is the label under which the guys at Dallas Audio Post release sample libraries and Kontakt instruments for use in film, music and games.

Our need for unique and interesting sounds has us constantly updating our libraries and databases. We love making noises, bending sounds and recontextualizing things into shapes and forms they were never really meant to take.

Under echo | collective our custom sounds are available to the world at large. Feel free to take a look around, listen to the demos, watch the videos and then pick up some sounds. You can follow us on twitter @echocollective
