Update: MachFive 3 version available!

Image

Environments is a series of sample libraries inspired by our research in sound environments and the relationship of sound and space.

Environments "Temple of Mercury" features sound gestures from a corrugated plastic pipe and the impulse response of the Temple of Mercury, situated in a wide caldera near the west of Naples (Italy). The Temple is also known as "The Echo Temple" for its several acoustic reflections caused by a dome vault and water on the floor. The sampled instrument produces flute, horn, efxs, impulsive sounds, and, with a little electroacoustic modification, feedback sounds; all sounds are playable with or without the convolution of the Temple.

Details
- Price: €14
- 24 Instruments
- 5 Multis
- 3 Round Robin samples
- Up to 3 velocity layers
- 87 Samples (44.1kHz / 24Bit)
- 1 Impulse Response
- Size: 160 MB
- Formats: Kontakt, MachFive and WAV

Native Instruments Kontakt 4.2.4+ full version required
or
MOTU MachFive 3.1.3 required

This library was inspired by a video by Salvatore Carannante, a musician who plays common or recycled everyday objects as a way of interacting with the acoustic space: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tXLk7tLyBbQ(vimeo for better quality)

A fantastic experience with AudioThing. The idea of spreading an acoustic environment to more people was initially exciting. And now it's ready!
Thank you, AudioThing.
