Ancient Cursed Tapes

Ancient Cursed Tapes


Since i found the Pianobook project i always
wanted to contribute in some form, but i have
no music skills or musical instruments.

so my attention was lead to very old public domain movies recordings.

i search for public domain horror films that were pretty….. noisy??? to say at least since they were recorded almost in VHS tapes and mono low quality audio
but i think that is what make them perfect to horror.

i extracted audio samples for different movies and put them through stock plugins on my Daw of choice which is LMMS(on a Linux laptop) and well there you have it reverb delay flanger and Equalizer.

hope you like this very primitive and horror sounds and this bring a new perspective on what a old recording can bring to the horror sound world.

( sorry for the very lame black background hoping somebody with talent on picture editing tools can add a better wallpaper.)


Leave a review to let others know what you thought of the instrument!

These are cool and fun I just wish that they were all in a central folder instead of each patch being saved alphabetically in the Decent Sampler Library.

Nice texture. I often write cinematic pieces myself and this will be a great addition.
