During lockdown my employee asked me to make a short entertaining video for my colleagues to watch during lunch break. I took my musical talent and creativity to make a song with things from my home office desk. Ranging from mouse clicks, glasses, rubber band but I also had out of the box ideas and recorded my vaccum cleaner and toilet. After finishing the song I always had the intention to make it into a library. The relaunch of pianobook gave me the motiviation I needed to finish it. The finished song can be found below.

Really glad you didn't over process these sounds, leaving plenty of room for people to experiment, & the small file size is always good.
Music in the Home Office!
Super great, super inspired, and tons of fun. One of my favorite tricks is adding "desk percussion" to tracks. At this point, there's nothing left on my desk which hasn't been recorded. These sounds are well recorded and super useful. It would have been really nice to have the tonal elements such as the bottle blows, doorbell, and glasses in separate patches mapped across the keyboard so they'd be playable. I think that was a really big missed opportunity. Other than that, I think this collection is great!
Very very unique sample patch!
Very unique set of sound library! It has many selection of hits and bits, including voices!
This are very well recorded samples, which you can decontextualize latter, since the GUI has no knobs in it. The idea of making music with ordinary non-musical objects has always attracted me, and this approaches very well to that idea.
More useful on the foley side...
I would have loved to see a little more processing on the sounds to give them more musical qualities, but that's just me. Since they are pretty raw and dry samples, it'll be obvious in the mix that they are just household sounds, which may be a good or bad thing depending on what you're looking for. Some round robins would also be nice to add realism and variety.
