An exclusive bundle of delights from British-based sample developer Sound Dust. Six of their top-selling, most inspiring and delightful instruments at a great price.
PLASTIC GHOST PIANO
An amazing sounding, one of a kind "acoustic" piano made by spurting bursts of controlled noise through unsuspecting piano samples. Plastic Ghost Piano is a warm, richly sampled, analogue sounding hybrid piano with some real character and lots of sonic possibilities. There really is nothing else like her. Sounds range from warm, woody and expressive acoustic piano to blissed out orchestral haze.
GRAND THRIFT AUTOHARP²
GrandThrift autoHarp² is what happens when you mate a tiny autoharp with a full sized grand piano. She's an impossible hybrid instrument with four different string layers that create unique pianoish, plucky, autoharpy sounds. This strangely beautiful offspring weighs in at a fairly hefty but graceful 380mb and contains 4 separate and individually adjustable layers of multi-velocity samples from every note of both instruments.
Originally designed and manufactured in Scotland in the 1800s, the DULCITONE is a portable keyboard that was made for missionaries to hump around remote African village churches to help perk up hymn services. It has a very basic piano action with spring loaded felt covered hammers striking small magnet shaped tuning forks and has a woody glockenspiel/celesta kind of sound.
This is the sister to Dulcitone1884², a 16-year younger beauty with a slightly jinglier and more even tone which really compliments the butch woody clunk of the 1884 version.
Sound Dust have taken their experiments with the Plastic Ghost Piano and multisampling impulse responses to create instruments from another world, and have applied it to Pendle's rare collection of dulcitones. A creation of haunting beauty.
Hammr+ is one part of the Hammr Suite a classic tonewheel organ sample set developed with Oasis/Sheryl Crow keyboard player Mikey Rowe and recorded by genius Andy Britton at the very lovely Toyroom Studios here in Brighton. You'd be right in thinking that he last thing the world needs is another Hammond clone, and I would be the first to agree, but the Hammr+ is a little different.
Of course she oozes classic character and has all the capabilities you'd expect of a tonewheel organ, but in true Sound Dust style this thing moves way past the limitations of the original. By taking advantage of sampling technology, bespoke Kontakt architecture and a little bit of imagination Hammr+ can do things that were inconceivable in the original 1959 instrument.
