Water Bash

A sampled water bottle....

The story

I’m usually more familiar with being filled with H2O but I’m always up for experimentation. A solid donk on the side seemed to make me want to sing a little, so I did just that.

And whilst at first this instrument might seem simple, there’s some flexibility and interesting textures to be found.

Stay hydrated, look after our water ways, fill up your own reusable bottle, turn off your computer and go outside for a hike. Oh, and don’t forget to take a little portable recorder with you. You never really know what you might find.

Glug, glug, slurp!

  • Uniquely captured sound of water bottle!

    Interesting! Well captured bottle sound. Especially lower register has a deep pumping pad sound. I think it has a lot of interesting usage to the projects.

  • Sounds kinda like a hang drum!

    Even though it's supposed to be a water bottle, it really sounds a hang drum! It also kind of dynamic as well. The range is set for the entire keyboard, although I would just stick to a more smaller one in the middle, because the samples get way too distorted as you go too high or too low. Sadly there are some clickly noises at the end of each sample which I don't really like and there's no way to treat that. The UI is ok but I really don't like the aesthetics of it. Needs some work in regards to that!

  • Typical Bell-esque sounds

    Great tuned percussion sound. Has a bell-like quality. Nothing too special, but could really jump out at you with some great FX. Enjoy!
