  • Cloud Cello | sound-dust

    Cloud cello £35 Cello+ twine × reverb = Cloud Cello ​ Two instrument variations - solo & ensemble versions 1.6GB download 50 themed instrument presets (.nki's) each with mod wheel patch morphing for variation 38 extra patches for Omnisphere 2 using Cloud Cello samples for FULL version of Kontakt 5.5.1 or above. add to cart Cloud Cello? Cloud Cello is the big brother (or sister, if you like) of the Cloud Viola . She's a deeply multi sampled hybrid Kontakt sample library created from an ordinary 17th century classical stringed instrument, but played and recorded in an extra-ordinary way. Cloud Cello opens up new orchestral-ish, cinematic tones and textures that sound both familiar and a good way. There are also 38 free Cloud Cello patches for Spectrasonics Omnisphere 2 included with the Kontakt version. mid Cloud Cello for Kontakt VST Cloud Cello for Kontakt VST by Sound Dust Cloud Cello for Kontakt VST How to make a Cloud Cello Cloud Cello for Kontakt VST Cloud Cello for Kontakt VST by Sound Dust Cloud Cello for Kontakt VST Cloud Cello for Kontakt VST by Sound Dust 1/6 How? So, you take an unsuspecting cello, remove all the strings except one and place it in a stand. Instead of a conventional bow, use something with a bit more texture and bite - in this case, a ball of coarse garden string sounded best. Stringing a standard bow with garden twine doesn't work, you'd need an impossible 10-metre bow to play a smooth note (I know it's impossible because I tried to make one!). After many experiments and cups of coffee, a retractable dog lead, an elaborate pulley system and a classic vintage fishing reel came to the rescue. This system can hold long lengths of string under tension and be drawn evenly over the cello string to produce a usable tone. Next step is to rig up some suitable mics. A contact mic near the bridge gave good body, and a large diaphragm condenser near the string picked up the 'grist'. Then using a capo for accurate tuning, thousands of passes were recorded to get enough samples for 5 x round robins per note plus conventionally bowed accents and col legno notes for extra flavour. The final step is to form the Clouds by pushing each note 100% wet through a bespoke swirly setting on my Strymon Big Sky reverb pedal, and then do the same thing all over again with a different setting for 200% wetness. What's Inside? Two instrument variations - solo & ensemble versions. 2GB of 24bit samples (uncompressed). 50 themed instrument presets (.nki's) each with mod wheel patch morphing for variation. 38 extra patches for Omnisphere 2 using Cloud Cello samples. Three octave key range - C1 to C4 Seven deeply sampled articulations through eight 'oscillators'. Accented bow: short bowed note with conventional bow. 5 x round-robin per note. Two mic positions- valve condenser and contact mic. Col legno: Latin for 'gently thwacked with the back of the bow'. 5 x round-robin per note. Two mic positions- valve condenser and contact mic. Twine: bowed with 5 meters of green garden string. 5 x round-robin per note, minimum 20 seconds per sample. Two mic positions- valve condenser and contact mic. Hard-wired to CC11 for expression pedal or midi controllers. Dark Cloud: Twine recorded 100% wet reverb-ed through Strymon Big Sky hardware reverb. Playback through Kontakt grain oscillator. Pale Cloud: the Dark Cloud recorded 100% wet reverb-ed through Strymon Big Sky hardware reverb unit, so basically 200% wet! Sub Bass: (ensemble only) Moog Voyager sine bass. Effects per oscillator: tremolo, vibrato, saturation, pitch selection, pan, low-pass filter, high pass filter, reverb and delay.

  • Prepared Pianet | sound-dust

    Prepared Pianet £30 A plebeian Pianet T : poked, prodded and pampered produces powerful, pleasing and pretty perverse powered pianic possibilities. ​ 3 Kontakt instruments - Prepared Pianet, 3 X Muted Pianets and 3 X Acoustic Pianets 46 instrument snapshots 280mb download for FULL version of Kontakt 5.5.1 or above. add to cart Sounds like forgotten out-takes from Bitches Brew sessions discovered after 40 years under a damp blanket at the back of Joe Zawinul’s garage. This little marvel comprises three instrument sets – acoustic, muted and amped. Each set features a number of fully tweakable sounds which can be edited, blended together and given the full Sound Dust treatment to create your own unique Prepared Pianet. As with all Sound Dust instruments the Prepared Pianet is rich with possibility. The audible charms and eccentricities of classic tine and pickup electric pianos are utilised and brought under the control of the player as never before. mid Reminded me of my old Pianet T, which I played through an elderly Selmer 100 watt valve head (turned up to eleven, of course) and a 4x12 speaker cab with a couple of torn cones. The resulting overdrive and feedback blotted out three guitars and drums leaving just me and the bass in a body pummelling groove. I thought that sound was lost in time, but it’s possible once more and at much lower volumes with the Prepared Pianet. Dean- Quietland Prepared Pianet Prepared Pianet - a sample library for Kontakt VST The gubbins Prepared Pianet - a sample library for Kontakt VST- RTFM Prepared Pianet - a sample library for Kontakt VST Prepared Pianet Prepared Pianet - a sample library for Kontakt VST The gubbins 1/5 All sounds were carefully sampled from the source instrument, a Hohner Pianet T, using three techniques; Very close mic-ed for acoustic harmonics and dissonance, muted with a finger placed delicately on each tine for a thumb piano feel, and through high quality pre-amps. As with other Sound Dust instruments the results can be thought of as a self-contained orchestra of the surreal. The Prepared Pianet offers superb standard electric pianos and heavily processed tines. Stratospheric pads are under-laid with electronic tweets and chatter. Played lower down the scale, a muted piano becomes an unstable electro bass. Whacked out opportunities abound, from evolving electronics, snappy acoustics and indescribable musical tones and frequencies. The percussive blasts and tinkling subtleties which can be achieved inspire the imagination. Whats Inside ? Acoustic Pianet - very tricky to record because these things are very quiet - 6 velocity layers of close mic-ed tines Muted Pianet - a delicate finger laid expertly on each tine and recorded through a Warm Audio Tone Beast preamp - 6 velocity layers Amped Pianet - nice long resonant notes, clean or amped - 4 velocity layers Individual controls for octave, volume, sample start, pan, stereo width, attack curve, ADSR, vibrato and reverb send per pianet 960 24bit mono samples = 280mb with Native Instruments' propriety compression 24 custom convolution reverbs per piano 4 fully controllable instrument effects - chorus, rotor, phaser and master algorithmic reverb Master FX page - master EQ, tape and valve modelling plus transient designer Keyboard Velocity and Round Robin modelling page 3 Kontakt instruments - Prepared Pianet, 3 X Muted Pianets and 3 X Acoustic Pianets 46 instrument snapshots Handy build in instructions in RTFM page FULL version of Kontakt 5.5.1 or above needed.

"There comes a point on every production when you've done the basics and now you need something new, interesting, unique and inspiring. So I navigate to my Sound Dust library where time and time again I'm surprised and thrilled by what I find " - Gary Barlow - yes 'that' Gary Barlow ! ​ "I love it! Went straight into a soundtrack I'm working on" - Paul Hartnoll - Orbital ​ "This is just what Omnisphere has been waiting for" - Phil Hartnoll - Orbital ​ 1/2 mid Philosphy... Omnisphere is a lot like a sampler from the early days of sampling. She can happily loop around pre-written loop points, but for user samples* she can't do multi sampling. Instead of each note having its own sample to play back at several velocities, one sample is stretched over the whole keyboard. Higher notes are simply played back at faster rates, lower notes are slower. This means that looping samples move at different rates across the range of the instrument. This is terrible if you are looking for accurate renditions of real world instruments, but if you embrace it this can be a joyful playground of creative happenstance. Sound Dust is a big believer in creative happenstance. ​ * do not fear, this doesn't apply to the core omnisphere library (although it does for some of it) £35.00 for Untopia instant download.
