Tonehammer releases Click
Tonehammer has announced the release of Click, a new sample library for Kontakt.
Click is the sound of tiny, little things. It is the tick and the tock, but not the clock. The little clack, the sound of rock. Click is the embryonic state of all sound and we want you invite you back to the womb.
Tonehammer “Click” is the most comprehensive sample library done of ultra tiny object sounds. Click contains several thousand samples of anything from buttons to bowling toys, wooden branches to eating chips, boiling frying pans to human hoses, nail files to pocket watches, sand-drums to styrofoam, teeth clacks to water bubbles etc. The concept may seem strange at first, but these sounds have remarkable value in terms of composition and music, since the “click” covers a very specific sound and frequency spectrum.
Click is the opposite of epic, yet big in its own way.
