Whereas sample instruments often boast about featuring the most virtuosic musicians recorded in the finest halls, what if a piece of music calls for the sound of a more novice player casually mic’ed up in their bedroom studio?
Inspired by Christian Henson’s philosophy that imperfection is what gives samples authenticity, I bring my first offering to the Pianobook community: the Bedroom Clarinet for Kontakt .
The instrument features two articulations – longs, which come with quite a bit of sometimes-shaky sustain and natural sounding releases, as well as one-shot shorts with 8 round-robin cycles. I also went ahead and scripted three knobs for the performance view: tremolo, vibrato, and speed, so you can get that warbly, mellotron-like sound.
Leave a review to let others know what you thought of the instrument!
So human. I very much wish to have a bassoon or English horn by this creator, or by another creator in homage to it.
Just right for that intimate moment of reflexion or soliloquy in a scene of film.
You know you’ve just shot some really moody stuff that is so film noir but need that sound that really captures the moment and binds it all together. use this.
