Master Shake Cup

Master Shake Cup


Master Shake Cup – by Clay LaHatte (or Shake Cup if you prefer)

As I was about to finish the shake, I happened to shake the cup to stir, which made the straw spin around the topper opening. So, guess what…. a sound to sample and see what can be done with it. I also recorded hitting the bottom of the cup with the straw. I sampled it using my Tascam DR-40 at 96kHz.

Once I got the samples cleaned up and in Kontakt, and applying liberal effects (Blackhole, Supermassive, Shimmer, etc.), I sampled the affected sounds for every note on an 88 note keyboard, up to F#6, where Kontakt couldn’t play the 96kHz sample at any higher pitch.

I think it turned out really nice. I hope you will agree. Thanks for listening.
