Lurking deep in the darkest closet of many a mom or grandma, waiting to strike at unwary guests, you will find them… cookie tins. These insidious purveyors of delicious treats come in many shapes, colors, and sizes. Some are festooned with holiday trappings, offering a false sense of well being and cheer. Others bear an image of their delicious contents, tempting those who stray too near. But what happens to these tins when their cookies are consumed, leaving them empty and seemingly useless? In most cases they simply accumulate, multiplying until they fill all available free space. But these dangerous cans are not merely nettlesome clutter. In the hands of a skilled percussionist (or, even in my hands) they become exotic musical instruments with delicate overtones and a unique, tinny sound. Come and explore the myriad mysteries and delights of Monster Cookie Tins!

Full version of Kontakt 2.2.4 or up required
Kontakt 2-3 vs. 4: There are separate folders for K2-3 and K4. The K4 instruments are optimized and tweaked slightly for best results in the more modern version of the sampler. A few of the instruments (notably the TinString and Tinthesizer) sound slightly different in K2 than in later versions of the software, due to the way Kontakt changed its handling of the Tone Machine function. This is really only an issue if you are migrating a composition from using K2 to a later version.
