Flutter Dust Module


Acoustic scannable wavetables and looping - a 21st  century Mellotron kinda thing

1.3GB (compressed) 24bit stereo samples

6 .nki instruments in two variations - LOOPER and Wavetable

160 snapshot sound presets

for FULL version of Kontakt 5.5.1 or above.

Flutter Dust Module is a new Kontakt sample instrument that uses long and complex multi sampled acoustic 'wavetables' that scan in real time to create beautiful organic, evolving and unexpected new sounds.

Like the Mellotron, Flutter Dust Module is based on recordings of acoustic instruments– but the extra functionality of the Kontakt engine takes the Flutter Dust Module to places of which the tape-based Mellotron could only ever dream. Creating woozy, ghostly versions of real world timbres, users can just move the play head position or loop points to construct new sounds - punch-drunk orchestral pads, delicate flute-otrons, majestic organ-celeste, complex poly rhythmic Phillip Glass scapes...and more, all at the click of a button (well, a few buttons).


If you are beguiled by the music of genre defying artists like Tim Hecker, Ben Frost, Cristobal Tapia de Veer, Radiohead, Bjork and James Blake, then the Flutter Dust Module could be your new best friend – enabling you to make music which inhabits a sonic 'other' space by sounding both acoustic and electronic.

To demonstrates some lovely possibilities, the demo track 'Fading of the Light' is a version of an orchestral cue from hit BBC drama The A Word (kindly lent by Sound Dust user and Bafta winning composer Rob Lane) re-imagined using only Flutter Dust Module.

Dreamy, crepuscular, luminous, authentic, ambiguous, hazy, enchanted, disquieting – the Flutter Dust Module is all of this, and more.

The Sounds


Wavetables contain edited, mangled, reversed and morphed sounds from Sound Dust favourites...Dulcitone, Plastic Ghost Piano, Ships Piano, Hogwarts piano, Cloud viola & cello, Auto harp, plucked grand piano, Pendleonium, Orgone, Hammond organ, Rubber Bass.

Each wavetable has a play head with 128 play start positions plus precise control of loop lengths. These can both be controlled and automated in real time. The LOOPER version even has an individual start point, loop start and loop length control per note.
