Basically I sampled my blender then put it in RX7 Elements.
I messed about with it till I got a fairly decent sound then I put it in Kontakt and did the rest in there.
As I am new at sampling, this is pretty basic stuff.
There is a video of me sampling the blender then putting it in RX7 and Kontakt
but it is pretty boring lol.
Reviews for Blender RX7
Leave a review to let others know what you thought of the instrument!
This blender is not annoying!
Never thought that the harsh sound of a blender can become a beautiful pad instrument. Cheers for the idea! It is indeed very nice, and it sounds more like smooth but also textured strings. I can see it fitting in some concepts, but at the same time there is not any room for customization, since the GUI offers only a picture of a blender machine.
There's a mellotron hiding in there
If you're a fan of Mellotron choir sounds, this is the library for you. If you dig in to Kontakt and bypass the reverb, shorten the attack and release times, you'll have an incredible likeness of a Mellotron choir. Not sure if that speaks to the lack of musicality in the Mellotron samples, or the extra musicality of Keith's blender, but either way, it's a really cool sound!
This is a great synth sound! Nothing too crazy as far as anything new with the sound. Layer this with a sine wav if you're playing the higher range to help add to the bottom end. The low octave of this is actually great too. Enjoy!
Great sound design
Its so awesome that you were able to take such a harsh sound and turn it into something mellow and beautiful. i would never think to do something like this. The instrument kind of sounds like a choir patch on a synth. I dont personally like the sound very much but i know there are people on here that will find this very characterful and useful. i prefer more natural and organic sounds. While this does sound organic, theres something synthy and un natural about it which again, im sure others will like, i just personally dont. This is such a creative idea though.
Interesting concept, but limited use
Nice concept and light pad sound, but the kontakt instrument is limited by the lack of effects and GUI. Could do with a couple of knobs to extend the sound palette further!
