Props Box sound library is a collection of different sounds emitted by everyday objects used in weird ways. It can be a great and handy tool in designing more complex sound effects for games, or just a go to pack to quickly fill the gaps in movies and other linear media. Everything was recorded with high quality equipment, able to capture frequencies well above 20kHz, so it’s a very flexible material when it comes to stretching or pitch shifting. 169 mono files features more than 1000 sound effects, cause each recording contains different variations of the same activity. The total length of the files is 292 minutes, and you can read more about included sounds here. As for the post processing, everything was edited and mastered. Editing came down to removing unwanted sounds between takes, and mastering to removing harsh sounding frequencies, compressing and setting everything on level that is comfortable to work with, so you don’t have to constantly adjust the levels while looking for specific sound.
Long before the Rhodes piano made tines rock’n’roll, little resonating metal bars were called lamellae and were to be found lurking below the ornately-carved exteriors of Victorian musical boxes. Some of these clockwork devices were extraordinarily intricate, involving moving figures that twirled, danced, made gestures or appeared to speak before retiring into concealment. Larger mechanisms might have removable and replaceable drums, allowing you to play different tunes (possibly the earliest example of the hot-swappable storage drive?!). All of them were more or less crude attempts to bring the music of the symphony or chamber orchestra home to the individual consumer, to be set going whenever you might wish (so, possibly the precursor of the iPod, too…) Music Box celebrates this decidedly clockwork heritage but – of course – welds in some more contemporary strangeness along the way. At its core, Music Box is sampled from a 3-octave professional musical mechanism which runs its tunes from punched paper rolls, like a player piano, instead of a drum. This lets the user create whatever tune they wish, with a little paper punch. (We opted for a 3-octave scale – not very exciting, but good for sampling!) To record this, we clamped it to the soundboard of our Takamine acoustic guitar, tuned the open strings in unison, and put a capo on the neck in tune with whichever note we were sampling – so the guitar body adds a hefty dose of musically-relevant resonance to the initial pluck of the lamellae.

Studio master brings you the video tutorials you’ve always wanted when needing to hook up external synths to your Cubase DAW system! Get all the basic questions answered as well as info on more advanced topics and solutions. Designed for the beginner to working with external synths in Cubase, Paul starts at the beginning showing you how to save your own input configuration to make the most of your available inputs, and set yourself up for the first device. Then it’s onto making your first connections and recording a single synth, layering parts as you go to create your full production, using only a single external synth. You’ll also get tips on ways to monitor your external synth, and how to get the most out of just one device. Still using only one synth, Paul now reveals how to capture and print MIDI data to audio, and talks about organizational approaches to handling multiple pairs of MIDI and audio tracks, as well as how to go back and make edits to your overdubs. For the rest of the video tutorials you’ll explore more advanced topics such as configuring your external synths to function like VST Instrument Tracks, using MIDI Clock, MIDI CC and Program Changes, MIDI Thru, Expanding Ports and more!

Memory Box features articulations such as bowing, muted plucks, double stops and a variety of designed instruments which redefine the sound of a classic music box. Inspired by a traditional 19th century Swiss music box, this library features 10 custom instruments which are all housed within the main interface. Recorded with high end contact microphones on multiple surfaces, we aimed to capture the intimate and fragile tone but with a modern twist. To enhance the flexibility of the instruments, we have included 10 impulse responses, multiple round robins, separate controls for mechanical noises, attack, damp and grit.
