The story

This is the kitchen percussion portion of a multi-part percussion library I put together during my final year of university. It is, by far, the cheekiest of the four categories but still surprisingly useful; I remained committed to layered, detailed sampling and tried to make this collection as musically-viable as possible!

Pots and Pans
—copper and cast-iron cookware, large lids, and a cookie tin full of silverware.

Things in the Cupboard
—spoons, a pizza cutter, the suctioned pop of a palmed cup, and cheese-cutter wire.

—bell-like strikes and a looping, bowed patch for each bowl!

The Blender
—not useful, but hilarious. I recorded release triggers for goodness’ sake…

  • The Hunter went to the kitchen

    And that's awesome, because now we have another addition to the already amazing Hunter's Percussion collection. Everything seem to be exceptionally sampled, with the ever so slight white noise in the Bowls patch that easily goes unnoticeable.
    Kudos to the Hunter and his kitchenware!

  • Very useful sounds

    It's always great to have some unusual percussive sounds and this nice package of all kinds of kitchen utilities fully delivers. Everything is well sampled and the GUI is easy to use. It's a lot of fun to play around with these patches and there is a good variety of sounds.

  • A lot of fun

    I really enjoyed playing around with this instrument. Nice variety of sounds, and full of character and detail. The GUI is very basic and simple, but it works. I REALLY wanted to make use of the blender sounds which you can hear in this demo:

  • It's not something you hear every day

    I am not the type of person to use random sounds in my songs, but its packs like these which give me inspiration to work with them more. I like cooking food, and I like making music, this is like a match made in heaven for me. If you don't like cooking it doesn't matter because I think this groovy kitchen will make you want to experiment 'till you are hungry. Great job on the sounds!

  • Great aux percussion sounds from home

    Anything can be a percussion instrument in the right hands! This is a toolkit of unpitched percussion sounds that add extra "flavor" (...groooannn) to a track.

    Because these aren't sounds that are instantly recognizable, they don't come with tropes and expectations of what we think they should sound like or ways that they're supposed to be used. So, if one thing isn't working in the mix, just grab the next utensil in the cupboard until I find one that works! Thanks Hunter :)
