Vax RX7

Make music with a handheld Vax car hoover!...

The story

So I looked around the house to see what I could sample that I could get a tuned instrument from.
I remembered the Rusty Gate contest and how people managed to get beautiful pads from that harsh sound so, I found my target. My handheld Vax car hoover lol.
I sampled the sound then put it in RX7 elements and messed around with the sound.
As you know how a hoover sounds, I was pretty surprised at the beautiful sound I managed to get.
I hope you enjoy this instrument as much as I do 🙂

  • I wish all vacuums sounded like that!

    The worst thing about this instrument that there is a bad clickly sample right in the beginning of each sample, which gets caught by the delay and repeats it self a couple of times. This can be easily fix by adjusting the attack juuuust a tiny but, but you have to do it manualy because there is no GUI to help you do it quickly. I'd also prefer to see a more moody wallpaper, just for the sake of matching the feeling I got while playing. I also wish that there was at least 2 dynamic layers to crossfade with the modwheel, but that would really make it a premium instrument in my opinion.

  • Nice pad sound made from a vacuum!

    Nice pad sound. I can't believe this was made out of a vacuum. Drown this sound in reverb or add some FX to it. Can work really well as a standalone or layered with other sounds . Enjoy!

  • The Vacuum That Hoovered Up My Heart

    This was one of the first packs I downloaded from Pianobook, and it changed my life. It is the most gorgeous, pure, almost haunting sound that brings so much emotion to any project. Still my go-to years later!
