The story

Spinning Pool Pump Hose

Summer brake is over. Time to pack up and get back to work. Time to make some new sampler instruments!
As I was cleaning up the pool and swung the pool pump hose above my head to dry it, it made that lovely whiney flute-overtone sound. I grabbed my phone, put in on a bench next to me and started recording. Next thing I knew I had a new sampler instrument!

Recorded on iPhone, added Little Plate’s infinite reverb and cut my samples from that.
It has three Round Robins and an ADSR. Nothing fancy but lovely nonetheless.

Give it a spin!

  • Nice!

    I really never expected this to sound so beautiful. Right out of the box the DS version sounds like a Sci-Fi choir. Really nice! You will need 1.5.24 version of DS or later for some of the features.

    This is an exceptional little instrument that, based on the title, you can't really expect what you are going to hear. It's a sound full of character that almost resembles a choir from space. You can't really tell this is a poll pump hose.. recorded on an iPhone... Incredible!

    The fact that this comes in DecentSampler and with a size less than 30MB is just the seal of instant recommendation to anyone who seeks for something different, yet vaguely familiar!

  • Sidereal drips

    The first thing I imagined when I heard the sounds of this pack were drops of water falling on the floor of a theater. However, after increasing the "attack" a bit, the sounds became more spatial, sidereal. I really liked that.

    I was struck by the fact that you chose 5 controls, and that the reverb control is not among them. I would have liked that control to be there, as well as the lowpass control.
