Balloon Symphony Swells

A simple, organic pad created from a balloon

The story

I recorded the sound of squeezing air from a balloon, (7 notes of a major scale). Yes, you can use autotune just about anything! I time stretched some of the notes, and also processed with granular fx, filtering, and an Eventide Blackhole Verb. Its basically a simple, organic pad that strangely has a kind of lo-fi symphonic quality . Any orchestras need a 1st chair balloonist?

    All of this from a few balloons. It's just crazy. Simple as it is, it delivers an amazing amount of sound possibilities. Love it.

  • Another awesome pad!

    Amazed with the beautiful texture of the pad. Very slow attacks can be used to create my healing music, thank you :

  • Randomized awesomeness!

    This is a wonderful pad-like instrument with lots of character and one dinstinct characteristic that I liked: You never know where it's going to come from! The panning is very random, bound to happen on each note press individually, which creates a very unique ambient soundscape that you never get bored of.

    The sound also kind of changes randomly a bit. Sometimes it i almost sounds like a textured string instrument, some other times like a very mellow woodwind.

    If this had a proper GUI and some controls to play with, this would be absolutely perfect. Still, it's a very interesting patch and I recommend it to everyone!

  • Beautiful, eerie, lively, blends well with orchestra

    Beautiful sound, great idea. This blends nicely with smooth, orchestral colors and icelandic kind of sounds.

    As the name suggests, this library has a symphonic sound. Its not quite orchestral though and more resembles some kind of synth or guitar pad. I have no complaints. Its simple but really beautiful. Especially in the mid range it has a really subdued and emotional sound. The natural swelling is great too. Im definatly going to use this in some of my upcoming post rock stuff
