HISS and a ROAR Microtonal Metal

In the centre is an authentic MEGABASS Waterphone designed by Richard Waters (RIP) and built and tuned for us by Brooks Hubbert. On the right is an Ocean Harp and on the left two models of the AquaSonics clones….

Thanks to its evolution & subsequent quality of construction, the MegaBass model is sonically in a league of its own. But each model has its own unique character, so we’ve bowed, struck & friction malleted them all and captured transmissions using two Barcus Berry contact mics and an ORTF MKH8040 pair of mics….

Incredibly fruitful for granular processing, while also containing many elements invaluable for developing uniquely characterful stings, textures, semi-musical and/or atonal components, transitions or abstract, magical or fantasy material…

The 16.8 GB library is on sale for $85 USD with coupon code XMAS at checkout (regular $129 USD).
