Paper Stone Instruments has launched Creative Junk, an experimental and tuned percussion collection for Native Instruments Kontakt.

The Instrument was recorded in the revered Studio 2 live room of Paper Stone Studios, Nottingham, England, using purely audiophile quality signal paths. Our most ambitious, comprehensive and versatile offering to date, Creative Junk is a goldmine of unique hits, quirky sounds, and inspirational tones, all multi-sampled in our converted cinema auditorium live room.

“When I’m writing I’m always looking for inspirational sounds, I want sounds that haven’t been created by conventional instruments and seek out unusual or abstract objects to manipulate and sample. I wanted to create a collection of these objects that would be sampled with multiple mic positions, and give them an interface that would allow each sound to be tuned filtered and sculpted independently of one another.” -Sam Brown Paper Stone Studios
