Sounds from the Kitchen

Various kitchen implements transformed into instruments....

The story

I decided to sample one of my coffee mugs when, accidentally, I hit its internal side wall with a teaspoon, whilst stirring coffee. The sound it produced really went straight into my hear, and I said to myself “I have to sample that, and make an instrument out of it!”. The milk pitcher was not accidental, instead, I just decided to try and bang it with a teaspoon, and see how it would sound. Of course, the experiment was successful and so I decided I would add it to the collection.

The coffee mug was sampled as described above, though water was used to fill the mug, and not coffee. The end result is no different. The milk pitcher was filled with water and was sampled by hitting it from the outside with a teaspoon. The pads are made by picking one of the original samples and stretching it long enough. The wobbling effect comes from setting certain options in one of ProTools’ Elastic Audio algorithms.

“Sounds from the Kitchen” is meant to be a collection of sampled kitchen items, and turned into playable instruments (one shots, pads, etc.)

  • Cute collection of sounds

    It has many types of sound, from mag putting noise to the pitcher placing noise. Very cute and comical, nice to add to the collection!

  • Very interesting sounds!

    Let's start with the Milk Pitchers. The samples loop kind of obviously but it's really not a big problem for the nature of the instruments. I didn't manage to pick off any noise in the Pad, but the Dry Shots patch is kind of noisy and very sharp sounding. Regarding the Coffee Mug patches, they are both noisy, but the One Shots patch is more welcoming - though if you play fast, the hits start getting delayed a little bit. The pad is nice but unfortunately it's noisy too, and it builds up very fast by itself, since the volume goes up as you hold down the note.

  • Perfect Sound for Halloween

    This library is the perfect sound for all your creepy scary melodies. It can serve you well in a mystery, suspenseful, thriller type song. Or even in a pop or r&b context. Add some reverb and delay for fun!
