VST Buzz has launched a limited time sale on the Music Box by Bad Cat Media Group, a sample library capable of childlike nursery rhymes, eerie melodies, enchanting passages and much more.
We took 16 different music boxes and meticulously recorded each one note by note to create a highly expressive music box instrument with all the nuances and intricacy of the real thing. In an effort to make an instrument of the highest quality & detail, we made sure to include every subtly possible. Each crank, creek, scratch, buzz, ting and scrape was left in and the result is something quite organic and simply inspiring to play. The entire library was recorded using ribbon microphones at 24bit 48khz.
There is a minimum of 8 velocity layers per note. Due to the nature of the music box and the general range of such devices we ended up with quite a few velocity layers for some pitches (40+). Instead of using round robins we decided to use many velocity layers so that a performance could easily be altered but not be random. The Music Box requires the full version of Kontakt 4.2.4 or higher and is 388 MB (zipped)
The Music Box is available from VST Buzz for $12 USD until June 25th, 2013 (40% off regular $20 USD).
