Man Makes Noise has announced the release of The Duck of Death for Omnisphere 2.6.
MMN says "The Duck of Death is an unusual library. It is not what you would expect. The Duck of Death is an exploration into changing an irritating and horrible sound into something beautiful and cinematic. The Ducks have been used raw and they have been transformed with other tools and then made into cinematic sounds with Spectrasonics' Omnisphere 2.6 synth."
"With a face that only a mother could love and a voice not even that mother could love. The Duck (or actually Ducks) of Death brings you a voice heard all over the internet (you know the viral videos of people pushing a bunch of these down and running for their lives). Man Makes Noise present a library that begs the question, what makes an instrument? Man Makes Noise has gone with the idea that an instrument can really be anything."
"Two toy ducks were sampled. First was The Big Duck. The Big Duck is the main vocalist of the library, producing most of the raw sonic material. Capable of doing short and long notes, The Big Duck specializes in monotonous delivery. Beat it enough and you can get some more colors out of it. And actually beating it with a stick produces some monotonous thumps."
"Then there was The Little Duck. It produces barking."
The Duck of Death contains 200 patches, 50 multis and 165 original soundsources. The patches are divided into 11 categories that are easily identifiable within Omnisphere.
The Duck of Death also contains a bonus library of drums recorded from a cardboard box and processed into electronic drum kits. This is provided in a simple Kontakt instrument as well as .wav files.
The Duck of Death requires Spectrasonic's Omnisphere 2.6.
The price of The Duck of Death is 39€ (excluding VAT) with an intro price of 25€ (excluding VAT). The intro offer is available until the 24th of November.
