The studio I rent used to be a school.
It then became a metal workshop creating parts for the aviation industry.
In the late 90-ties parts of the workshop was re-worked into a recording studio, in the 00-ties the main area became a TV-studio and in 2019 part of the top floor is my studio.
The ”C90-ir”-instrument uses parts of the building’s past to breath new life into my recorded voice.
Oh yes, this is my voice transformed or should I say grittyfied, grainyfied and made metallic.
I recorded my voice onto an old cassette deck and sent those recordings to my phone. I then used a Vibe-Tribe speaker to vibrate those recordings on different objects.
A pair of Neumann KM84 was used to capture those vibrating moments.
There are four different singers or timbers to choose from:
Tape – the original tape recording with lots of reverb added.
Shelf – a large metal shelf with various objects and spiderweb.
Plate – a nice sounding plate I found.
Drum – a vintage and somewhat destroyed bass drum.
Use the mixer to blend the voices to your liking.
The Tape icon acts like an octave button, deactivate for a smaller sound.
The Drum icon toggles a pre-fader send that let some dust come through even if the modulation wheel and the individual voices are all the way down.
Here’s a video that tries to capture the spirit of the recording session:
Here’s a quick walkthrough:
Leave a review to let others know what you thought of the instrument!
There's just something about Cassette Tapes.
A clever GUI pulls this library's layered sound together. The low pass assigned to the MW is a really nice touch. The tape sound itself has plenty of character and gives this choir a wonderful sound. In my opinion It is deserving of an ADSR section on the GUI. Great job!
Deep and warm textured drone / choir
Very nice! Easy to play and I like this warm textured choir library. Low range gives an deep and warm drone texture.
Lo-fi Choral Beauty
Very useable lo-fi choral sound that's quite transcendent. I'd love to hear a cleaner less distorted version but it's a beautiful sound none the less
A great pad that works as a synth, disembodied vocals, or sound design! I love all the blend options because you really can get some drastically different sounds with just a few parameter changes! My one wish would be for at least an Attack option to really send it more to padtown but I love love love the character!
Lots of character on this one
This is a great little instrument that offers a great ambience with cool settings to play around and find your own ambient voice. The GUI is great but for such instruments I personally kinda need ADSR settings for making it work for me, and this doesn't include any. More specifically I feel that the release needs to be controlled a little in order to be able to adjust in various situations. I like the filter addition in the modwheel though. Overall it's very good and I highly recommend it!
Really inspiring and wonderful vocal pads, coupled with an intuitive and instantly usable GUI. Love that MIDI cc's are preassigned. Yes, this is noisy, but I think that's sort of the point of the character the creator was going for. This is a great sample pack!
Really enjoyed playing these
Gotta love me some lofi
Very unique sound with some really cool vibes.
So soothing it makes me want to lie down on the floor and sleep for a while
Inspiring and easy to use. It also sounds wonderful. Mycket bra jobbat! :
Very useful texture.
This is really wonderful. Well done! Version 2 perhaps to include control over ADSR :
Very playable, with some pretty stunning results
Lots of good stuff in here. The tape noise/effects are a little heavy in areas, but thats the point I think here. Very Boards of Canada type drones too. Great stuff
