Bathroom Cabinet

A collection of recorded sounds from a bathroom cabinet....

The story

I’ve been meaning to learn about sampling for a while and seeing some of the excellent submissions to Pianobook gave me the inspiration I needed to dive in.

My first project had to be something simple so what we have here are a selection of lid pulls/pushes and scrapes on various toiletries from my bathroom.
No velocity layers, no round robins. Just simple percussive hits laid out on the white keys from C2 to F4.

Recorded with a Zoom H4N’s internal stereo mic and an SM57 in my bathroom (for a bit of authentic ambience) then noise reduced with RX Elements.

There is a plate reverb control too, for more cavernous facilities.

  • Intimate percussion that could benefit from more programming

    It's a solid effort for a percussion library with a really intimate sound. However if this has a bit more attention on the dynamics/velocities it could be quite useful for some.

  • Could be useful for some

    I can't seem to locate any noise so the sampling is great. But due to the lack of dynamics, I wouldn't put it in MY arsenal, because I kind of need more dynamic percussion for the stuff I like to make. If you do something more like experimental EDM, you might be able to fit this somewhere.

  • Not a bad sound; may need some FX

    If you're looking for some nice percussion snappy sounds, this is perfect. I would suggest throwing some reverb or delay on there to make the sound standout. Enjoy!
