unEarthed Sampling has released Forgotten Songs for Kontakt 4.2+, a new sample library based on "cinematically mangled public domain vinyl recordings".
Here's what they say: "Atonal Chaos. Ligeti and The Monolith from 2001 go hand in hand... if you're next score is in need of a similar tone and some creepy atonal pads and drones, Forgotten Songs is for you. If you're familiar with classical pieces from Gygory Ligeti such as Lux Aeterna... then you already know what to expect with FS. This sort of ever evolving creeptastic choir vibe is the sound we were after for the library... albeit a bit more synthetic in tone. Through stretching, tweaking, maiming, destroying, and processing various clips from old public domain vinyl recordings from the 1930s, we have achieved it. The end result is extremely creepy as some of these pads have a 10 or 20 second build-up stemming from highly stretched choir or orchestra sounds."
Also included are looped versions of many patches. Combined with the LFO control on the mod wheel and Attack / EQ controls on the GUI you can create some very organic and constantly moving creepout pads. The toggleable convolution reverb makes these sound huge.
Forgotten Songs is also a nice addition to your arsenal if you're an artist specializing in ambient or chillout as these sounds cater to that genre rather well.
