Several passionate owners of musical toy collections gave us access to very rare and sometimes very old musical toys. Even a famous museum opened its doors to our insane sound design team.
The result is a flashy selection of inspiring instruments ready to play with: Toy Pianos, Musical Boxes, Ancient Automates, Wood and Metal Xylophones, Mini Bells, Baby Drums, Toy Guitars, Ukulele, Melodicas, Small Accordions, Harmonicas, Children Percussions, Funny Horns, Musical Gadgets, Musical Cubes, Plastic Tubes and much more.
Loops and phrases are also included for instruments like old music boxes ; and let´s not forget the Baby Drums and Toy Guitar sections that were played by skillful musicians in top-grade studios.
Every aspect of each of the 97 electric machine has been captured : multi-sampled instruments with release samples for every note, rhythms converted into sliced loops, GM drumkits created, FX and speech voices carefully organized ... You will feel like having all these toys right under your fingertips.
These jewels´ character come from their acoustic assembling and the "cheap" speakers they use. To capture the essence of them, we did sample them in a superb sounding studio room. We took the time to find the right microphone for the right machine, then recorded every note and every sound possible (including release samples, key clicks, etc...), we also did record drumloops or instrument loops.
After editing this huge amount of sounds, we did finalize by trying to find the best way to organize the collection in 10 categories: Children, Developed, Drums & FX, Mini Sampler, Musical Toys, Organ Basic, Silly, Small, Speech & Style-o-phone.
