Haunted House Records releases Electronic Critters
From the product page:
This sample dvd was born during the creation of Creature’s latest album Distant Horizon. At the start of the albums writing process, creature aka Stephen Haunts from Derby in the UK, spent months circuit bending and sampling childrens toys. Once sampled, the recordings where chopped up and run thorugh numerous effects to create sounds unlike anything you have ever heard before. Stephen enjoyed this process so much, that after Distant Horizon was released, he continued processing these sounds and created even more alien sounding textures. The result is this sample dvd.
Electronic Critters features
- Over 750 raw and un-processed circuit bent samples.
- Over 250 sound textures and atmospheres created from the above samples.
- All samples are provided in both 16bit 44khz and 24bit 44khz.
