A Fun and Bizzare Instrument
Gnat Shepard Household is truly bizarre instrument. The sounds provided as patches are already enough to give you an idea of what this instrument can do and what silly things you can use it for. Great for kids music, a sound effects add-on, or, yes, even part of a thick layer of leads. There are multiple patches with pitch bends that are fun to use. You can use the many knobs to change the sound, but, I prefer to just use the presets and then add effects and double up the sounds.
Just be mindful that, because of the variance in pitch in these presets, that layering sounds will require a bit of thinking. Think simple, and your layers will come out fine.
The most creative vuvuzela you can have
Ok, this is a special instrument which got a special treatment. And this really is an ennoblement.
The range of the original instrument - as we know - is minimal.
AtomHub managed to make patches which give a really playable instrument which reminds somewhat of a shawn.
Then there are the derivatives: AtomHub did a great job on the imitation of animal noises: Lots of chickens, then you have pigs, cats and seagulls! This is very creative and useful.
Plus some quirky other sounds and even some sort of mellotron.
