Ghosts is a continuation of my fascination with imperfection of all types, the bruises and battle-scars, the ghosts and dust which are inherently missing quite often from software instruments and ITB production. I really set out to create a set of playable, imagined instruments which (hopefully) sound as if they really could, or do, exist. Video and audio demos above, ALL sounds in the demo are from the pack, unedited, no other FX.
The sources are very diverse but include some samples from my tired old Austrian upright piano, using a borrowed Rode NTG1 microphone to focus very closely in to capture some out of tune notes, string scrapes and plucks and noises from the wooden case of the piano itself. Other field recordings, heavily processed, are also used along with some hardware synths and software sources processed through an array of software, cassette, dictaphone, reel to reel and of course, my hardware samplers.
52 patches - mainly pads, slowly evolving and full of texture, grit, hiss, life and history. Also Keys, FX & Drones and one solitary bass patch.
Velocity and Modwheel mapped to give as much playability and expression as possible. All samples are carefully mastered to a sensible LUFS level and presented as 24-bit/48kHz WAVs for use outside of the pack if desired.
Ideal for dark ambient and soundtrack work
