FrozenPlain has launched Victorian Music Box, a free virtual instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt.
Victorian Music Box has a great sound, somewhat dark, yet beautiful. It’s perfect for creating atmosphere and for background melodies.
The first page includes a random knob; this delays the start time of the notes. This is perfect for adding realism to the instrument. As you can imagine, an actual music box will not hit multiple notes at the extact same millisecond.
There is also a simple EQ, If you find it a little too bright and plucky, bringing the highs down a bit is perfect for this.
Victorian Music Box features
- Antique music box.
- 42 samples (lossless ncw format), stereo 44.1kHz/24bit recordings.
- 4 round robin.
- 21 convolution impulses.
- Effects page; tempo synced delay, rotator, distortion and reverb. With presets!
- Extra sounds; winding up and noise from the cogs.
The library is a free download. Requires full version of Kontakt.
