BOLDER Sounds releases DIY Music Box
BOLDER Sounds has released DIY Music Box, a free sound library featuring a DIY music box.
This Bolder FREE Sound features a D.I.Y. (do it yourself) music box mechanism was sampled mounted to a beautiful 4 string alto guitar acting as a resonator. The D.I.Y. mechanism has a 2 octave diatonic range in the key of Ab, all 15 pitches were sampled.
A second music box mechanism was used to create layers which can be controlled via velocity or the modulation wheel. Each of the individual music box mechanisms are also presented as instruments unto themselves.
DIY Music Box is available in Kontakt 2 and EXS24 formats.
