Soundiron has announced the release of the Musique Box, a comprehensive collection of deeply multi-sampled music boxes with a huge range of extended content, powerful custom interface and cutting-edge performance features.
The front panel includes sound selection, dynamic swelling, note attack, sample start offset, release gating, pitch shifting and key range control for two different instruments at a time.
We captured 11 different music boxes plus wind-up sfx, in a variety of environments and configurations, from bone dry, to concert hall, to submerged in a bathtub. We also manipulated the recordings to create a wide range of tonal and atmospheric sustains, pads, ambiences and special effect instruments, plus an array of 8 dynamic FX patches and another 10 custom presets to open up a wealth of creative possibilities right out of the box.
Our goal wasn’t to simply deliver the most comprehensive music box library possible, but to provide simply unmatched creative tools that turn these humble music boxes into heavy duty compositional power tools for custom tuned percussion design. Next to the Musique Box, the rest are just toys.
