Sample Oddity has announced the release of Monster Cookie Tins, a cookie tin based percussion and more for Kontakt.
Lurking deep in the darkest closet of many a mom or grandma, waiting to strike at unwary guests, you will find them… cookie tins. These insidious purveyors of delicious treats come in many shapes, colors, and sizes. Some are festooned with holiday trappings, offering a false sense of well being and cheer. Others bear an image of their delicious contents, tempting those who stray too near. But what happens to these tins when their cookies are consumed, leaving them empty and seemingly useless? In most cases they simply accumulate, multiplying until they fill all available free space.
But these dangerous cans are not merely nettlesome clutter. In the hands of a skilled percussionist (or, even in my hands) they become exotic musical instruments with delicate overtones and a unique, tinny sound. Come and explore the myriad mysteries and delights of Monster Cookie Tins!
