echo | collective has launched Squelch, a full featured interactive radio instrument and sound effects library.
The Squelch sound library is a collection of 6 radios, walkie talkies, and CBs recorded both through the speakers and in some cases through the line outs. Each device served up a broad palette of static, beeps, clicks, squelches, and random idle chatter.
The Kontakt instrument is a unique performable radio device designed for experimentation and discovery of the broad palette of sounds. It also includes a classic spring reverb unit with a custom interface created from a Pioneer SR202W. See the Kontakt interface here.
These authentic radio recordings are useful in sound design/film applications and can be twisted out into musical and sound design effects.
- 24 bit 96k metadata tagged wav files.
- 93 unique recordings with hundreds of individual sounds.
- 1.8 Gb of sound.
- 1 really cool Kontakt unlocked .nki file.
- .nki files require full version of NI Kontakt 4 or higher.
The sound library costs $15 USD.
