Wine Cork Synth Hits

Wine Cork Synth Hits


Christmas 2020 was a weird time for all.
My wife and I treated ourselves to a fancy bottle of wine and as we had a few drinks I thought the popping cork from the bottle sounded really good, therefore something I wanted to sample.

Did I use my nice fancy rig to record it? No, I used my iPhone (see “a few drinks” reason above)

This instrument is made to be manipulated, EQ, Saturation, Delay, Reverb, you choose. I kept it at a simple sound for you to play with.
I also added a custom reverb slider (THANK YOU DAVE HILOWITZ) with added convolution reverb because more reverb on tap is never a bad thing.

A fine example of an instrument that does more than you'd expect

I’ve commented before on pianobook about the difficulties of choosing the right bass sound to suit a project. Some work for a few notes here and there, others are swallowed by the other instruments, yet more stick out like a sore… I mean, Wine Cork Synth Hits isn’t even supposed to be a bass sound. Wine corks were never meant to be an instrument, come to that. And yet… I know for a fact that Wine Cork Synth Hits can do way more than provide a punchy bass. I was expecting something percussive like Hot Butter’s classic ‘Popcorn’. What I got was far more nuanced and interesting – try it and you’ll see what I mean. Oh, and if you’re searching for an intriguingly different bass sound, your search stops here.
