Honey Pad

An eclectic pad created from the sounds of bees.

The story

It’s springtime and with the flowers come the Bees. I found a huge hive on a hike near my house. I went back with a Shure Stereo Condenser mic connected to my phone and recorded them, carefully so I did NOT piss them off. I loaded in to my DAW and used Soundtoys Crystallizer on it to create some granular octaves (below and above) while still keeping their “Bee vibe”. I also created a pad from ebow on my 1960 Gibson Melody Maker with some Trem from my Fender Princeton. I blended the two and Honey Pad was born. Kind of eclectic I know, but 6 weeks of quarantining will do that!

  • Can you imagine the sound from the title?

    No. This nostalgic and calm pad sound makes me think of Winter season as well. I really appreciate all the concepts and creativity of these libraries!

  • Wait for it... wait for it...

    ...it builds and builds, evolving beautifully. I don't quite know how to describe the sound - delicate, rich, gentle, longing, organic? All of those. I guess beautiful will do. If Joshua could do a Dolby Atmos version of this we could use it as alternative to flotation tank therapy.

  • Sound Like An Orchestra Pad

    This sounds like an orchestra. But It'a pad. The feelings this sound evokes are peaceful. Zen vibes. Enjoy!

  • Ever evolving

    This is a really awesome pad I've used in a track before. It keeps evolving and stays interesting the whole time. It almost has a choral effect with a kind of shimmer at the top. It's really fun to hold down chords with. My only complaint it that it seems to favor the left side so i had to balance it out a bit with a panning plugin. It takes a while to build up tp full volume so that might be annoying in certain circumstances but might be just what you want in others

  • Great overtones...

    The higher pitched notes above what is played really help create the wistful and delicate sound of this library. A GUI would be nice, even with just some simple controls, but it performs well enough with out it. Solid samples and scripting, great work!
