Sound Objects (vol. 1) is now available in Live pack format. It is a unique collection of sampled objects typically found in a hardware store, including saw blades, joist hangers, ABS and metal plumbing pipes, ceramic tiles, metal sheets, gardening forks, ground plates, metal rods, electrical boxes, and the likes.

The library can be divided into two main categories: percussive and bowed instruments (arcos). Sound Objects have been sampled with many different types of attacks and with up to five dynamic levels, creating the feeling of real instruments. Within Live, they deliver stunning keys and mallets, ethereal pads, unheard of basses and guitar-like instruments, bells and percussions.

The sound objects included in the collection were selected for their musical qualities and possibilities by a professional composer and percussionist. They represent many years of experience in sampling and sound experimentation with natural sound sources.

The collection breaks new ground in bringing sounds that could not be used as instruments, since most of these objects need very close miking, but yet that have awesome musical qualities. It’s the perfect library to complement the arsenal of composers and sounds designers alike, bringing a new sound realm.

Create your own sound

Sound Objects (vol. 1) Live pack is intended as a toolbox to create new textures, new timbres and totally new sounds. With Live and Sampler, possibilities are endless: SoundObjects instruments can be transformed through filters, oscillators, LFOs, effects, layered with Live instruments, etc., in the most intuitive way.

Original sound objects have been meticulously sampled, with virtually no room tone and no reverb and for the total duration of the sounds. This technology allows for layering and transposition with minimum artifacts, and for maximum transformation and processing. The quality of the samples and their complex harmonics make for stunning organic instruments.
