The story

Sound 1: A short “OOO” sung into an Aston Origin; time stretched & printed through FabFilter Pro-R. The sample is formant shifted within Kontakt with an LFO effecting the size and frequency range of the shift.

Sound II:
Two strikes of a ceramic flower pot struck with an oak drum stick recorded with an Sonarworks reference microphone from above. One pitch shifted down an octave with Little Alter Boy and the Unfiltered Audio Tails Shimmer; the other shifted down again post Little Alter Boy with Things Texture. Both hits with aux sends to two different Valhalla Supermassive reverb patches.

Sound III:
Recorded with same Aston Origin a ‘Hydro Flask’ was bowed along the base edge with a heavily resined Viola Bow. Time stretched and pitch shifted down an octave with Little Alter Boy, then send through Valhalla Supermassive with high density, feedback & warp. When “Growl” is activated the sample is changed so that while the pitch is shifted down the formant remains unchanged.

All noise reduction with Izotope RX
Pitch Correction with Wave Tune and Logic Pro Flex Pitch.

My first foray into making custom graphics and GUI.

    Great sounds. Inspired me to create some samples in FL Studio 21. I'll be using these sounds to make some Trap music.

  • Very nice soft choir

    I love the warm sound of the choir, I do dislike the fact that it isn't a loop, but no worries. The other sounds aren't really my cup of tea, still very nice!

  • Lovely

    My favorite patch is the default, adding anything else just seemed to take away from the lovely pure sound that I started with.
    The interface is very confusing with weird turning knobs and buttons that are hard to tell if they are on or off. Great default sound though.

  • Beautiful sound, confusing GUI!

    This is a nice and simple choir patch that comes with extra layers of sounds and fx settings that can further give to the beauty of the overall sound. The entire instrument is surrounded by a very confusing and mislabeled GUI, which takes away from the experience, but the sound is there and it doesn't take away anything from it - although it may slow things down until you get familiar with it.

    The choir layer, which is the first and initial sound, is very smooth, warm and calming, which is basically the first layer marked as I. The second layer sounds like a distant bell-like mallet that enhances the attack of the instrument, and the third one is like a beautiful glimmer with a fast decay setting. The choir itself is beautiful and the third layer can compliment it well, and depending on the style you are going after you can add the bell for that extra attack.

    As for the rest of the settings, you wil find various effects that can be enabled on the left, and come with extra settings on the right. The "Vel" slide is not erally a velocity one, it's basicall a volume/expression knob and it has nothing to do with dynamics.

    Overall, I'd prefer a simpler, less vibrant and straightfoward GUI, but in general it is worth to check it out!

  • Avocado Bathroom Sweet!

    Depending on one's taste the GUI is either the worst thing you've ever encountered or exactly the right level of kitsch. Either way I don't really understand what's going on with the switches on it. Personal taste gripes aside, the sounds themselves are pretty usable especially the vocal pad and the pot clang percussive keys sound. Overall there is a distinct Fairlight CMI vibe to the sounds which I like and the fact that you can mix the three sounds to create something original is a bonus making the instrument quite a lot of fun to use.
