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.

The way this track flows is very unique and beautiful. Though there are so many sounds, the composer has mixed them all in at the perfect moments giving a very grand and expansive feel with a sound library you wouldn’t expect. Well done!
