The story

Hi! My name is Mirko Nisenson, I’m just passing by to tell you that this instrument is super random. I was chilling at my little house and suddenly my fireplace started making this strange sound, like some kind of moan or scream, I don’t like it at all… But maybe you do! It’s made in Kontakt 6.6.0. Enjoy! <3

  • An excellent and unique pad

    I absolutely loved this pad. It's features this very unique, airy sound that you can't easily find. It's mysterious and magical, and you should definitely try it out.

    You will only see a Low Pass filter in the GUI, but I really wanted ADSR for this one. Luckily, it's programmed in a way that you can completely alter the envelope by yourself through the Kontakt instrument modulation settings - by clicking the wrench icon on the top left and going all the way down. It works perfectly fine, and I love it even more with a smoother attack and a much longer release!

  • Ambient and eerie, I love it

    Nice pad, well done. You've created a great pad with plenty of motion so it doesn't get boring.

    It's ambient, it's LoFi, it's almost industrial in a way. It reminds me of the eerie drone from the asylum's tape machine in Sucker Punch. I'm playing with it in a quiet house, late at night, and I have to say I'm a bit spooked.

    I'd probably have preferred the mod wheel to adjust the velocity rather than the low-pass filter, though I agree the filter is the more conventional parameter for the mod. It's just that the beauty of this pad is in the higher ranges so I don't think I'll get much use out of trimming them off. But, to each their own.

    Great job, thanks.

  • Extremely quiet but really unique

    First of all this is extremely quiet, like wayyyyy too quiet. I had to fully crank my interface just to hear it at a comfortable volume. With that being said though this is such a unique sound. I think it sounds the best in the mid register. It has this kind of whispering modulation quality kind of resembling tape dropouts that i find super unique and expressive. i named this whispering pad in my kontakt folder. With an almost 1gb download size i was expecting more controls and id be interested to know what is taking up this space. Theres also some weird background noise which is kind of hit or miss for me. Sometimes i find it super interesting while other times i wish it wasn't there. As i said earlier though, the whispering/ dropouts quality of this pad i really find super interesting and expressive.
