Spincycle: the sound of a washing machine in the woods - a washing machine like you've never heard it before. Okay - Matmos got here before me with "Ultimate Care II" - but you can't get that for Kontakt, so if you want the sound of a washing machine in the woods, get it here!
Compatible with Kontakt 5.5.2 or higher (NOT Kontakt Player)
Spincycle has both a sustained, melodic sound and a selection of percussive samples.
The melodic sound is the sound of the washing machine (which really is in a cabin in the woods in rural Ontario) washing away, run through Kontakt's tone machine to make a grindy, droney sustained sound.
The percussive sounds are various hits of the washing machine, sampled at multiple velocities and with round-robin alternates for a dynamic sound.
Included are two NKIs (single instruments) and two NKMs (multis):
- Spincycle_melody.NKI is the sustained, droney sound only.
- Spincycle_percussion.NKI has the percussive hits of the washing machine only.
The two NKMs layer both the melody and the percussive hit instruments together so the percussive hits are at the bottom of the keyboard:
- Spincycle_both_62.NKM is for 62-note (5-octave) keyboards
- Spincycle_both_88.NKM is mapped for an 88-key keyboards
The custom Kontakt interface provides various controls to shapethe sound and the built-in flanger, delay and reverb effects.
Little, limited, but useful
Industrial sounding drumset (made by banging on a washing machine) + organic-sounding synth made from the engine sound. Useful and good for the price.
