A toast to AudioThing!
AudioThings continues to sample the everyday life sounds and launches Glass, a library for which they used a balloon wine glass.
AudioThing explains that for this new Kontakt library, they used a balloon glass (though the pictures on the website show a brandy glass with short stem), chosen for its crystalline sound and its long sustain. The editor hit the glass with fingers and hand palms, a piano hammer and a metal stick. The glass was also "played" with wet fingers on the border or throwing small screws into the goblet, and they also processed and slowed down some sounds in order to create atmospheric pads.
The library features 10 .nki instruments, 7 .nkm multis, up to 10 round robin samples and 3 velocity layers. 114 WAV 24-bit / 44.1kHz files are included, as well as 7 custom reverb impulse responses.
Glass is available for the introductory price of 9.95€ instead of 12€ through June 2nd. You can listen to audio demos at www.audiothing.net.
