The radiator in the corridor where I work drives me crazy with its incessant ringing so I decided to make an instrument out of it.
Reviews for Ash’s Singing Radiator
Leave a review to let others know what you thought of the instrument!
Nice pad sound
Nice pad sound with a slight delay on the attack. The higher notes almost sound like a woodwind instrument. Great for creating ambient textures just add reverb. Or layer with strings for a unique blend. Enjoy!
Sparkling synth sound
It has a unique texture of synth sound. Higher range has a sparkling sound, almost like a hiss. I think it would be interesting to use it.
Low weird drone
While this certainly isn't the most versatile I think it sounds really awesome and unique. I particularly love the more mid rangey register. It does have a singing quality as noted but it almost sounds like some kind of ethnic woodwind instrument too. i cant quite out my finger on it but its definitely unique. Espicially for such a small download size, i would assume that there aren't many samples and that they are stretched but it still sounds really great. The high end sounds pretty awesome too. While this isn't as playable as a normal organ, you can get some really great textures out of it
A nice, ethereal texture, but some controls to help customize the sounds would be very helpful.
Tea kettle with rumble
This sample library is interesting because there are two basic things going on here: there's a high whistling sound, and a second, kind of unpatched rumble. I can't help but think that in most cases, I'd wish the rumble wasn't there, and I might try emptying a high pass filter to get rid of it as much as i could. The delay and reverb applied within Kontakt both have rather long decays, but this can be adjusted to taste within Kontakt. Less controllable is the rather slow attack of the sample. The actual sample attacks rather slow, so if you're hoping for something with a bit more snap, you'll have to adjust the sample start time. Despite these minor issues, this is a fun and useful library.
