Really? A Pizza Box?

Make music with a pizza box...

The story

After finishing the delicious pizza, I bumped the box as I was about to discard it. Then I thought, “I wonder what I could get from this via sampling?” So, of course, I did so.

I sampled it using my Tascam DR-40 at 96kHz. I recorded striking the closed box in the center with my finger, as well as rubbing the edge of the box against a shirt.

Using the strike sample in Kontakt’s Tone Machine I got a synthy sound. I then put it through Valhalla Supermassive, Backhole, and Valhalla Shimmer, and the sound was really nice, very lush. So I sampled that via every note on an 88 note keyboard, up to F#6, where Kontakt couldn’t play the 96kHz sample at any higher pitch.

I think it turned out really nice. I hope you will agree. Thanks for listening.

  • It's what you'd expect...

    It's about what you'd expect from a sampled pizza box. The pads are kinda interesting, but overall very common sounding. I like the percussion but it definitely has a niche sound that may not be for everyone. Truly an interesting concept that seems to have been executed well.
