A collection of Kontakt Instrument from the mangled sounds of a 20 year old Radio-shack Vox Voice Recorder.
The sounds are in 3 categories: Ambient, FX, and Synth-like. These sounds include drones, soundscapes, riser and drop like sounds, and just plain mangled sounds. Most of the ambient sounds are looped seamlessly.
Most of the sounds are derived from the actual mechanical noise of the recording device, by physically toying with the buttons until malfunctioning, odd sounds were created. That being said, some of the sounds are the sound of mangled sounds on the tape itself, as the result of fast-forwarding or slowing down the tape dramatically (the shrouded, unrecognizable sounds being sounds included in Audio Reward’s Headphase).
There are some tuned tape ambiances where an empty part of the tape was sampled as it played and the static and hum was tuned to either major or minor.
A free folder is also included and named “Extra Instruments,” which consists of 6 samples and 5 NKI instruments, 51.8MB of samples uncompressed.
Contents of paid package:
- 82 Samples, 326MB uncompressed 28 NKI patches and 4 Multis
- Requires full version of Kontakt 5.8.1 – not for Kontakt Player
- The photosynthesis engine was used for the creation of all Kontakt patches:
Radio Tape Update 1:
This is a free update for existing users of Radio Tape. The update more than doubles the sample content and sample size of the library, and almost triples the instrument count. While the new instruments are inspiring and unique (like the ones in the initial release), the 61 new patches are not quite as experimental (for the most part). Therefore, you may get broader use out of this new set.
Most of the instruments are still based on the warped sounds of tape and sound fx from the devices themselves (whether it be static, squeal, or hum). However, some of the new sounds are the morphed sounds of voices and violins which were first recorded onto a tape cassette or vhs.
61 new inspiring and unique NKI patches, in 5 different categories
106 All New Samples, most 96khz, 24bit (789MB).
