Peter’s Spieluhr

A Spieluhr sampled with an AKG C 3000....

The story

Dear Pianobook Community,

This is the Spieluhr of my daugher, sampled with an AKG C 3000 in my home studio. My first Kontakt instrument.
I used some noise which appeared while turning the small handle as relase samples, scripted some main controls and a made wallpaper of the Spieluhr with my daughter’s hands 😉
It has a nice tough, but maybe someone can noise reduce the samples since i have no Izotope RX7 and maybe even get a better mapping of the samples (key- and velocity-wise).

Best regards from Berlin,

  • A lovely, innocent-sounding music box

    This is a lovely music box, well sampled, and highly playable. It does have some noise in the samples as the author indicates, but in a musical context, it doesn't seem too bad. Unfortunately, the Kontakt instrument was saved with absolute sample paths, so you'll need to point it towards the samples. Looking at the mapping window, you can see that a crazy amount of work went into laying out these samples. It's like a jigsaw puzzle. The effort and care show through in how playable and musically useful this sample pack is.
