MODULAR CHAOS ENGINE 1 FOUND

A chaotic drum machine for a chaotic world.

For the past 10 years or so, Pendle Poucher always carried some kind of portable recording device and a pair of OKM in ear microphones around with him and kept a kind of aural diary of great sounding things and great sounding places. He's made literally gazillions of recordings in places all over this side of the world, and like most diaries these recordings have mainly been sitting in dark cupboards waiting for someone to rediscover them...

The Modular Chaos Engine is the perfect repository for 785 of them. He selected the most usefully percussive, clangy, bangy, thumpy, boomy, itchy, scratchy, thwacky and whacky, added a really powerful sequencing engine and made a "found sound" drum machine.

    Features include:
    • The Chaos button for instant randomisation
    • The Order button for an instant return to normality
    • Comprehensive editing with quick edit system
    • 12 sample engines with individual articulation control
    • 12 sequence engines with algorithmic looping controller
    • Lots of great binaural sounds
    • Celery!
    • Built in manual

    MODULAR CHAOS ENGINE 2 EVOLVED

    A chaotic drum device for a chaotic world

    It's probably fairly obvious by the blueness and the title that this machine is based on the strange and rather wonderful analog/digital masterpiece that is Dave Smiths' Evolver. I LOVE this synth, in a sterile world it oozes personality. Modular Chaos Engine#2.1 takes hundreds of sounds from this beast and moulds them into a highly interactive and serendipitous 'drum' device that can help you quickly create new and unexpected beats, breaks and rhythms that you just didn't know you had in you.

    This Chaos Engine has up to 120 different sounds/articulations per sequence node which are very loosely mapped across the keys from from low kick drum type sounds through snappy snare type sounds up to more clicky, rattly hats and then the mildly melodic sounds up near the top end of the key range.

    Features include:

    • Boom Engine page - 12 user programmable, key triggered patterns with 12 tracks per pattern. Up to 120 percussive sounds available per note
    • Blap Engine page - 12 user programmable, key triggered patterns with 12 tracks per pattern.
    • 21 pitched sounds available per note (K5 only).
    • One Shot Kit page -5 octaves of programmable one shot kits with chaos and order parameter randomisation control.
    • Sends and Master FX page - control of master levels , master EQ and Transient designer (K5 only).
    • 1500+ original 24bit samples.
    • Instrument presets (.nki's) for Kontakt 4 and Kontakt 5.
    • 2 Vintage sampler emulation preset modes (K5 only).

    MODULAR CHAOS ENGINE 3 ODDHOP

    She's a quirky, wonky Kontakt drum device built for quickly and elegantly disappearing down a rhythmic rabbit hole.

    OddHop is packed to the gills with 100's of original acoustic and electronic sounds arranged into 5 octaves of oneshot kits with plenty of control for an infinity of sound design and beat making possibilities. But things get really exciting when you use the new drum and bass sequencing engines, each with twelve tracks of draw-able per note control over nine parameters. 

      Features include:
      • Drum Engine page - 12 user programmable, key triggered patterns with 12 tracks per pattern. Up to 62 sounds available per note.
      • Bass Engine page - 12 user programmable, key triggered patterns with 12 tracks per pattern. 15 sounds available per note.
      • One Shot Kit page -5 octaves of programmable one shot kits with chaos and order parameter randomisation control.
      • Sends and Master FX page - control of master levels , master EQ and Transient designer.
      • 700+ original 24bit samples (see box for sources).
      • Instrument presets (.nki's) for Kontakt 4 and Kontakt 5.
      • 2 Vintage sampler emulation preset modes (K5 only).

        MODULAR CHAOS ENGINE 4 STEEL DRUM PERCUSSION ROOM

        A kit of lovely, dusty, binaurally recorded acoustic drum samples and slightly prepared steel drums….a kind of Tom Waits percussion machine featuring drums in all shapes and sizes.
        There are huge flappy marching band bass drums, ripped and rattly snares and kicks, frame drums, congas, bongos, toms, hi-hats, cymbals, boxes, broken metal shelving…

        Plus the “prepared” steel drums. These are a neglected set of bass and cello steel pans played with fingers and soft mallets to avoid sounding like proper steel drums (more apocalypse than calypso), the tunings are a bit iffy, but there are plenty of velocity layers per hit for a rusty hang drum like effect.

        Great for making wonky, dusty beats, chunky acoustic EDM or even epic film scoring. Both kits were recorded binaurally in a great sounding room with long decays.

          Features include:
          • 400+ original 24bit binaurally recorded samples.
          • Bang Engine page - 12 user programmable, key triggered sequencers with 12 tracks of drum hits per sequence - up to 30 sounds available per note.
          • Klang Engine page - 12 user programmable, key triggered sequencers with 12 tracks of steel drums per sequence - up to15 sounds available per note.
          • One Shot Kit page -4 octaves of programmable one shot kits with chaos and order parameter randomisation control.
          • Sends and Master FX page - control of master levels , master EQ and transient designer.
          • 10 instrument presets (.nki's) for Kontakt 5.

                HAMMR+

                Hammr+ is one part of the Hammr Suite a classic tonewheel organ sample set developed with Oasis/Sheryl Crow keyboard player Mikey Rowe and recorded by genius Andy Britton at the very lovely Toyroom Studios here in Brighton.

                You'd be right in thinking that he last thing the world needs is another Hammond clone, and I would be the first to agree, but the Hammr+ is a little different.

                Of course she oozes classic character and has all the capabilities you'd expect of a tonewheel organ, but in true Sound Dust style this thing moves way past the limitations of the original. By taking advantage of sampling technology, bespoke Kontakt architecture and a little bit of imagination Hammr+ can do things that were inconceivable in the original 1959 instrument .

                Features include:

                • 70 presets including 30 classic sounds.
                • 69 specially recorded reverb impulses from a variety of real spaces and classic gear.
                • Cabinet re-micing through a choice of 11 speaker cabinets.
                • Dirt, morphing EQ and master EQ effects.
                • Dirty contacts control adds small amounts of timing variation to note on /off to mimic the effects of aging key contacts.
                • Chaos and reset controls for painless sound design.
                • Master/slave control system for quick adjustment of group controls.
                • Built in user manual.

                  HAMMR GROWLER

                      Hammr Growler is the filthy brother of the not particularly demure Hammr+ and a part of the Hammr Suite, a classic tonewheel organ sample set developed with Oasis/Sheryl Crow keyboard player Mikey Rowe and recorded by genius Andy Britton at the very lovely Toyroom Studios here in Brighton.The Growler is a 3GB monster that captures from 4 mic positions the full tilt sound of Mikeys favourite 888000000 setting on his 1959 B3 through a cranked up Leslie cabinet, and frankly it is one heck of a sound!

                      Features include:

                      • 24 presets.
                      • Leslie simulator with speed, treble/bass balance and distance controls.
                      • 69 specially recorded reverb impulses from a variety of real spaces and classic gear.
                      • Cabinet re-micing through a choice of 11 speaker cabinets.
                      • Dirt, morphing EQ and master EQ effects.
                      • Dirty contacts control adds small amounts of timing variation to note on /off to mimic the effects of aging key contacts.
                      • Master/slave control system for quick adjustment of group controls.
                      • Built in user manual.

                        DULCITONE 1884²

                        This is the home of the worlds first multi-sampled rare and beautiful 150 (ish) year old DULCITONE, and infact one of the few ways you can listen to what one actually sounds like.

                        Originally designed and manufactured in Scotland in the 1800′s, and with allegedly only 2000 in existence the DULCITONE is a portable keyboard that was made for missionaries to hump around remote african village churches to help perk up hymn services. It has a very basic piano action with spring loaded felt covered hammers striking small magnet shaped tuning forks. Its a bit like a Fender Rhodes electric piano without the electric bits, and has a very lovely woody, clonky glockenspiel/celesta kind of sound.

                        These rare beauties have become deeply fashionable, especially amongst “with it” film composers looking for something with a bit of character in a Tom Waits or Bjorky kinda way. Jon Brion uses dulcitone extensively on his soundtracks of Magnolia, Punch Drunk Love and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless mind.

                        This is your chance to to play my lovingly sampled 150 year old antique Dulcitone in all its glory. 70megs, 3 velocity layers and some fancy programming but without the slightly iffy forks and sticking keyboard.

                        Features include:

                        • 24 dulcitone presets that take advantage of the 3 pages of scripting.
                        • 4 octave architecture with control of volume, pan, adsr and delay per octave group.
                        • Note on and note off "thump".
                        • 69 specially made convolution reverb impulses from real spaces, expensive hardware, and some less obvious sources.
                        • Round robin sample swapping for extra realism.
                        • Midi timing jitter for even more realism.
                        • Some lovely pictures of the instrument herself.
                        • Charming hand drawn instruction manual!

                          DULCITONE1900²

                          Originally designed and manufactured in Scotland in the 1800's, and with allegedly only 2000 in existence the DULCITONE is a portable keyboard that was made for missionaries to hump around remote African village churches to help perk up hymn services. It has a very basic piano action with spring loaded felt covered hammers striking small magnet shaped tuning forks. Its a bit like a Fender Rhodes electric piano without the electric bits, and has a very lovely woody, clonky glockenspiel/celesta kind of sound.

                          This is the lovely sister to Dulcitone1884², a 16-year younger beauty with a slightly jinglier and more even tone which really compliments the butch woody clunk of the 1884 version. Think of dULCITONE1900² as Keira Knightly and Dulcitone1884² as Kristin Scott Thomas.....or maybe whatshisface in Twilight compared to George Clooney.

                          Seven velocity layers of binaural recording add up to around 500mb of samples. There's a wee video of her in action which tells you more about her than can be put into words.

                          Features include:

                          • Binaurally recorded for lovely 3d sound
                          • 3 voice, 3 octave architecture
                          • New sample start controllers
                          • Individual control of volume, pan, attack & decay, reverb send and saturation per voice group
                          • All controls midi learnable
                          • 500 mb of 24bit samples
                          • 10 dulcitone presets
                          • Built in manual
                          • FULL version of Kontakt 4 or above needed

                            GHOST DULCITONE 1900

                                An ancient and rare keyboard invigorated with nifty digital witchcraft.

                                This is a magical sounding impossible hybrid instrument that takes the rare and beautiful woody jingle of the dulcitone and transforms it into an extended dusty swoon that goes to infinity and beyond (although technically that's not really possible is it ?) If Tim Burton was a musical instrument he would make sounds like the Ghost Dulcitone 1900.

                                The starting point of Ghost Dulcitone 1900 is sister instrument the dULCITONE 1900² a 100 year old acoustic keyboard which is binaurally multisampled with 7 velocity layers. Then each sample is used as a convolution reverb impulse and 20 second bursts of Moog Voyager generated analogue white noise are blasted through it to create a whole new sample set of dusty, metallic bowed sounding, infinite duclitone-iness.

                                Features include:

                                • 6 deeply multisampled sound articulations; Pale Ghost convolution, Reverse Ghost convolution, Dark Ghost convolution, Dulcitone 1900, Roomy Nord and Release Nord
                                • 3.26GB of 24bit multisamples with up to 14 velocity levels per note
                                • Advanced architecture with automatable control of everything
                                • Sample start control
                                • Patch morphing with mod wheel controller
                                • 3 pages of scripting
                                • Ghost Engine with per voice algorithmic reverb
                                • Noise Engine with per voice distortion and filtering
                                • 74 specially created convolution reverb impulses

                                  SHIPS PIANO³

                                      Ships Piano³ takes the original acclaimed Sound Dust Ships Piano sample instrument and adds two more really great sounding character pianos to the mix.

                                      Think of her as a character piano modeller, you can cunningly combine different aspects of each piano to create impossible sounding piano hybrids. Just don't expect the usual bland, silky smooth tones of those other over sampled piano monsters.

                                      The fun doesn't stop there though, Ships Piano³ isn't just a pretty face.

                                      She also comes with the Satie-anator sequencer engine which combined with the keyswitch operated scale and key commands is a full on inspiration machine!

                                      Features include:

                                      • School Grand - a binaurally recorded grand piano in an ancient stone walled Hogwartsy school hall/chapel
                                      • Ships Piano - 4 or 5 notes of velocity, recorded binaurally and re-tuned since the last version - see box for her history
                                      • Room Upright - binaurally recorded with 3 layers of velocity, the cunning bit is that she was reversed, fed through high end reverb and then reversed again
                                      • Individual controls for volume, sample start, pan, stereo width, attack curve, ADSR, vibato and reverb send per piano
                                      • 346 24bit samples = 360mb with Native Instruments propriety compression
                                      • 24 custom convolution reverbs per piano
                                      • Satie-anator - 12 user programmable, key triggered sequencers with 12 tracks per sequence
                                      • Scale and pitch quantisers with keyswitch control

                                                    FLUTTER EP + WAVETABLE

                                                        Flutter EP is an electric piano like you've never heard before.

                                                        She is packed to the brim with specially devised samples made from a variety of slutty analogue hardware synths and keyboards. All sample sets morph and loop through various transitions for a mind boggling selection of unique but Wurly-ish, Rhodes-y, organ-esque, DX like electric piano type sounds....but of course there is a twist which makes her very different.

                                                        Think Radiohead, Jon Hopkins, Nils Frahm, Ólafur Arnalds or maybe Steve Reich in a fist fight with Trent Reznor.

                                                        The main interface is divided into 12 parts which (if you look hard enough) show the octave of a keyboard starting at C on the left. Each column gives individual parameter control for each corresponding note of the six octave range, whatever you do to the C column affects all of the Cs and nothing else.

                                                          CLOUD VIOLA

                                                              Cloud Viola is a deeply multisampled hybrid Kontakt instrument that takes a humble 17th century classical stringed instrument and lovingly cajoles it into joining the modern world. This isn't an attempt at any kind of authenticity (there are plenty of other Kontakt libraries out there for that already) Cloud Viola is all about creating new tones and textures which can work in a similar way to the original and go beyond.

                                                              Cloud Viola is perfect for adding interesting texture to a "proper" orchestra, using midi controllers and an expression pedal she can be played with organic expressiveness and genuine emotion. But unlike more conventional classical instruments she is completely at home with contemporary electronics and sound design elements.

                                                              She can easily go from delicate to feisty, sound like a haunted ballroom, a huge busted orchestra, a hundred rusty mandolins, a swarm of angry bees, a dusty Mellotron.

She's a deeply multisampled hybrid Kontakt sample library created from a ordinary 17th century classical stringed instrument, but played and recorded in an extra-ordinary way.

                                                                    Cloud Cello opens up new orchestral-ish, cinematic tones and textures that sound both familiar and alien....in a good way.

                                                                    There are also 38 free Cloud Cello patches for Spectrasonics Omnisphere 2 included with the Kontakt version.

She's an impossible hybrid instrument with four different string layers that create unique pianoish, plucky, autoharpy sounds.

                                                                          This strangely beautiful offspring weighs in at a fairly hefty but graceful 380mb and contains 4 separate and individually adjustable layers of multi-velocity samples from every note of both instruments.

                                                                          Features include:
