Niue is a sample library with atmospheric, inspiring sounds, all based on wine glass recordings.
With several finger snipping techniques as well as rubbing with varying pressure, I made different sized wine glasses oscillate to find the sweet spot of the glass sound.
For the recording, I used two large diaphragm microphones. Afterwards I processed the recordings with complex effect chains and granular synthesis to create unique sounds that still have their glassy character.
Niue contains a total of 38 patches, including atmospheric, moving pads, LFOs and tonal percussive hits.
Of course, there are also clean patches that send you straight to Hogwarts.
The initial working title for this library was “Glass Fields”. It already fit quite nicely, but a few weeks ago I read an article about the pacific island called Niue. Due to its minimal light pollution, you can see the most beautiful night sky on the island, which is why it offically becomes the world’s first “Dark Sky Nation”.
The name and the feeling around “Niue” perfectly deliver the concept of crystal clear glass sounds and atmospheric pads.
Niue works in Kontakt 5.8.1+. The filter is MIDI learned to the modwheel.
Enjoy and have fun with this library.
