The story

My first ever trip to NAMM was a thrill and a shock.

I couldn’t believe how little one could do to escape the constant noise. But, while the whole of it was an unrelenting roar, the individual parts were interesting, often beautiful. I returned on day two determined to turn this offensive barrage into something useful.

This is the result.

Includes a single patch which houses:

-Low and high frequency atonal beds
-Short and long tonal sounds
-Scattered, performative sounds (mapped to the mod wheel)
-Raw and processed general NAMM floor ambience

  • Goosebump machine!

    Hunter has made some pretty damn incredible instruments, no doubt, but for some reason, this might be my favourite so far. I don't know why, but it just touched a little bit of my soul. It really gave me goosebumps, and while typing this I got even more because I recalled the sound... It is an absolutely mesmerizing ambience that comes off of every single key that I press. I have no other words. Thank you, Hunter!

  • Wonderful Ambience

    This library is really something else. It's incredible to think that Hunter Rogerson took something that was basically just noise and turned it into such a beautiful instrument. It's amazing to just hold down a chord and listen to all of the interesting details in the sound. I especially love the lush sounds you get with the Pad-ifier. Highly recommended!

  • Brilliant Idea, Incredible Execution

    When I saw the video about this I was intrigued, I never expected it to sound so great and be so useful. Plenty of control through the sliders and knobs and the GUI is one of the best looking I've seen on Pianobook.

    Great job Hunter!

  • NAMM through rose-tinted headphones

    I've never been to NAMM, and I feel almost physical pain imagining the amount of noise there. Hunter's managed to turn something relatively awful into something fairly beautiful, with the usual impeccably stylish GUI. It's not the easiest instrument to work with, but I'd wager it's a lot easier than any other recording from the venue. Thanks Hunter for giving me the chance to experience a little bit of NAMM in an auditory safe-space!
