The Lamp

The Lamp


This is a lamp by IKEA called Jakobsbyn. It’s placed over our dinner table. Corona forced me to work from home and so our dinner table had to move and make place for my iMac. Unfortunately the lamp is placed quite low and close the my had, when I sit in front of my Mac. I banged my head countless times the last couple of weeks. It did hurt a little bit but also sounded quite nice. So this week I finally brought a AKG C414 XLS from my studio and sampled the lamp.

Messmerizing ambience!

I’d expect this quality and type sound in all high-end synths, but here it is, as a gift, that will be used often.
If the the creator were in the U.S., it would mean recovery under concussion protocols!

Very nice and interesting sound, fitted into my mix really well, has an almost haunting quality. Highly recommended.


Lovely EP/Steel Drum Style Sounds

I really like sounds that are made from like this. The dull bell-like tone from the lamp sampled makes for an instrument that lies somewhere between an electric piano and a steel drum along with a little dose of DX7 style bells – very nice! There is a similar sound in Omnisphere made from a bowl that I have used on a number of tracks over the years. Playing around with it yielded a nice demo track. For which I used The Lamp and The Lamp Pad sounds. I only used sounds from the library. No effects used other than some EQ and and some light mastering.
