Atom Hub has released Gnat Shepherd Household, a sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt.
I found this little vuvuzela in a supermarket and since it immediately got my son´s attention I bought it. The sound ? You know… vuvuzela. Just a simple whistle, the younger brother of the real vuvuzelas, which can damage not only your hearing, but also a football tournament ! :-)
This little disaster produces single nasty high pitched tone, which only me and my son seem to like in our entire family. (… or our town ?) Soon I realized, that this one note torturing is not all this catcall is capable of. So I started to “practise” and used it to produce quite wide palette of sounds – squeels, screams and creaks, which reminded me of various animals – so you can find seagulls, pigs, starling, cat, peacock and also unbelievable chicken patches inside.
