Sick Volume 5 is the latest entry in our annual Sick series, exploring melodic and exotic tuned plucked strings and mallets, unique winds and musical effects designed for sci-fi, horror and mystery genres. It also includes an extensive collection of evolving tonal ambient pads, atmospheric soundscapes, harmonic clouds and menacing drones. It’s also perfect if you just want fresh, unique musical sounds with an unconventional character and organic playability. It features 5 acoustic instrument sets, recorded in a bright chamber with adjustable close and far mic positions. The “Astral Dirge Pipe” is a custom contraptions sonically resembling a multi-key tuned didgeridoo.
We recorded chromatic sustains, staccatos and effects. The “Channeling Tube” is a classic spring-powered “Thunder Tube”, played both percussively and semi-chromatically by plucking the string at differing lengths. The Conjuring Bell is a beautifully melodious pair of chimes with a sound hole at the base to allow the thumb to create “wah-wah” effects as they ring. The “Spectral Moaner” is a droning wind instrument swung in an overhead arc to produce a harmonic series as speed increases. The “Demon String” is an acoustic guitar outfitted with a Vo-96 guitar synthesizer that produce infinitely self-sustaining richly harmonic organ-like drones. We recorded a full range of string plucks, plus major, minor and octave chord types. Finally, we’ve designed 60 mystery, sci-fi and horror ambiences and soundscapes. Every preset includes cutting edge control features, rack FX and otherworldy convolutions to allow you plenty of creative control.
