Sound Objects is a unique collection of sampled objects typically found in a hardware store, including saw blades, joist hangers, ABS and metal plumbing pipes, ceramic tiles, metal sheets, gardening forks, ground plates, metal rods, electrical boxes and the like. The Sound Objects collection also features a number of exceptional vintage instruments, including Thai gongs, tubular bells and various Chinese cymbals and gongs.
The library can be divided into two main categories: percussive and bowed instruments. The Sound Objects have been sampled with many different types of attacks and with up to five dynamic levels, creating the feeling of real instruments. Within Live, they deliver stunning keys and mallets, ethereal pads, unheard-of basses and guitar-like instruments, bells and percussion. The samples include virtually no room tone and no reverb. This technology allows for layering and transposition with minimum artifacts, and for maximum transformation and processing. The quality of the samples and their complex harmonics make for stunning organic instruments.
The impressive sound quality and originality of the Sound Objects collection offer a near infinite range of combinations and creative possibilities. With Live and Sampler, possibilities are endless: Sound Objects instruments can be transformed through filters, oscillators, LFOs, effects, layered with Live instruments and more.
