Joshua’s Hybrids

Multis created from blends of Joshua Meltzer's many submissions!...

The story

“Like many of you, over the past year I started uploading instruments on Pianobook. I was relatively new to it but being that my studio and gear are not exactly “Cribs” worthy, I’ve always had to rely on making my own sounds and creatively thinking outside the box. I used to look at it as a disadvantage but I’m trying to see it more as a blessing. What I thought I was lacking was actually an invitation to try and find a more personal and unique voice in my work. (Im still working on that!)

I’ve contributed close to 20 instruments this year and I decided to combine all of them, (and a few new ones) in to different multis. The unlikely blends of the various sounds have been fun for me to explore.They have created some pretty interesting results so I thought I would share them with the community. I’ve been super inspired (and equally humbled) by your sonic offerings! The level of artistry and talent is pretty astounding. I’m happy to connect with any of you in the real world as well as the virtual one, so please reach out if so inclined!

P.S. Some of my favorite multis are…

Ocean Guitar (Ocean Harp and Ambient Gtr)
Wilderness Symphony
Cinematic Post Rock Pad
Copeland In Space”

  • An excellect collection at your fingertips!

    This is pretty much a pretty huge list full of different combinations Joshua has created in the past, and each one of them has something to offer. Inside you will find 38 multi-patches for you to choose and play around. In a similar fashion of all his other instruments, they include only a wallpaper so we are only limited to messing with Kontakt's built-in settings. The samples themselves though are so great that you it is very unlikely that you will want to change them. My favourites have got to be Appalachian Dream, The Strange Choir and Ocean Guitar!

  • Very interesting, original collection of sounds

    The sounds of piano, kalimba, and guitar each have their own unique tones, and when mixed, they create a wonderful atmosphere.

  • Lanois Lately

    An awsome collection. A definite nod to Daniel Lanois there's even a pad called as such. Can be used in so many different ways. Either as initial starter for inspiration. Or to add to already worked stuff.
