This is a Kontakt instrument built using pristinely recorded power tools, as well as non-power tools. Basically anything you might use for construction or general building. It was recorded using the highest quality microphones, preamps, and recording techniques at the renowned Mirrortone Studios in NYC.
This can be used for foley, but the main purpose of this instrument was to be able to play these tools like instruments in a musical setting.
In fact, the library was designed while working on a children’s television show, but I’m now making it available for purchase to the public.
The instrument is broken up into 9 color-coded sample sections:
Aside from the samples, and the recording techniques used to process them, there are intuitive Reverb and Delay Controls that have been coded with the power tools in mind. You can get some really crazy sounds using just these controls, but when applied subtly, you end up with a very playable instrument.
