Version: Kontakt 5.3.1 / WAV / V1
Boards of Canada Synthesis
Download Method: Kontakt Hub
BOCS (Boards Of Canada Synthesis) is a Kontakt library inspired by the electronic duo Boards of Canada.
It's refreshingly different compared to previous efforts from various sample packs and vst synths.
The Audiowarp prerequisite will always be that our samples are unique, top quality and highly usable and that we do all of this at the best price possible for you.
Contains all three revered BOCS Volumes in one bargain priced bundle - totaling 55 patches which can be blended, morphed and modulated to your taste.
These wav files are open for you to use in other applications.
Please note: The FULL version of Kontakt 5.3.1 is required (NOT Kontakt player)
These sounds have been created using similar sampling and recorded methods utilised by the group themselves. Vintage analog synths, 4-tracks, valve amps even VHS recorders were used to create samples more authentic than anything we've heard before.
These sounds have a dirty, dusty, and dream like quality just like that elusive Boards of Canada sound.
All 55 sample banks each fit into two sound modules within the Kontakt GUI which consists of a patch blend option. Drop the volume on module 2 and use these samples as fantastic sounding individual patches. Combine any two of the ten different sample sounds and change settings such as volume, attack, release or perhaps add a high or low pass filter. With this awesome blend functionality you have the ability to create a vast array of new sounds tailored to your individual needs.
Use the modulation controls to change any parameter over time. You want a long silky filter sweep? you got it. Want to control the amount of oscillating micro tuning? Done. You just want those vintage analog synths moving and panning in some crazy manner whilst you control the oscillation speed in real time? Got it covered!
"I really like the vibe of the BOCS pads. They seems to fit quite perfect in a mix . Can't wait to check out more stuff from Audiowarp"
Delivers exactly as advertised. It's got that mood and that feel. Really unique!
Excellent!! Exactly what I needed
great vintage sound
This is an awesome instrument for electronic, ambient, experimental, and cinematic music!
I have been searching 10+ years for something like this.. I rarely use anything else.
Wonderfully processed and profoundly full sounding. I can see myself using this in a lot of my new music!
I had to have these.
I'm a huge BoC fan and I must say, the sounds are perfect. Absolutely incredible and thorough work.
awesome, thanks to the people who made this
I downloaded the BOCS Bundles which includes vol 1-3. All of the sounds are top quality and evoke the BOC style which i was looking for. Great stuff. Highly recommended.
Check it out! For your health!
Check it out! For your health!
Yup, definitely that dusty and analogish sound you'd expect from the name of tjis pack.
It's a bit strange thing!
I love it.
It's full of strange ambient sounds.
another great product for my other sounds folder
The BOCS Bundle happens to find its way into most, if not all, of my ambient productions. The sounds are spot on for what they advertise and I would gladly recommend this to folks looking for this sort of library.
Nice sounding pads and keys that are full of warmth...
Sounds great but..
Really nice VST to make Ambient & downtempo music but Full Kontakt is required!
Very authentic sounds for a Boards of Canada fan...super rich!
If you want that sound...
It's the BOC sound. Now that can of course be seen as a restriction but if you use it in a non-BOC way, there's still plenty of mileage in them. Well worth the price and nicely evocative.
Grainy, subtle, distant, analog. Some of the words that come to mind when thinking of this bundle. Beautifully done.
These are really cool and customisables pad sounds. Really works well for scoring ambient stuff!
Sounds are very nostalgic and well processed.
Lots of great sounds!
There are a bunch of patches that can spark creativity. Great for vintage, ambient, lofi, chill. I wish there was more control over the soundwaves and the ability to change them.
Overall a great set of patches for a low price!
80\'s and analogue
Nice, sometimes strange but made with true inspiration and love!
Very well done- Captures the essence of BOCS and works well in other genres.
Sounds are inspiring and also work great in a other genres. Great value. My only wish/suggestions: 1. Simple balance control between to the two sound modules- instead of having to adjust the relative volumes individually. 2. For those who own all 3 libraries, a 4th panel that contains ALL the content in one go, being able to cross mix sounds between the different libraries would be great. Summary: I've bought many boutique Kontakt libraries. Much as I want to support smaller developers, many come off as kinda undercooked, or often times sound great on their own, but limited in how they sit in a mix. Not this one - BOCS Bundle has got tons of vibe and character, just the right amount of low-fi and almost always ends up as a keeper in tracks I'm working on.
If you're into swirling, mangled, warbly, sounds chalked full of character and movement, then look no further than this bundle!
With this bundle you can't go wrong when it comes to having that trademark BOC sound. Endless possibilities in creating everything from beautiful to rough, harsh soundscapes. But as a preset-lover, I wish there were more of them.
Without a doubt. Produces that "dusty" tonality. Does need a bit of work when balancing various sounds against each other so as not to be a cliche. Great for beds, backgrounds, etc. And with a little external processing. Can be made more individual.
And really the whole bundle is more effective than single items. If the bundle is on a deal then worth the money.
Ok, if you like those wobbly pad sounds
To be honest I always wondered what was so special about BOC. They got famopus for using pad sounds mangled thorugh some fx, which sounded nice.
Here you have lots of analogue sounding pads. And lots of instruments to combine with via the dual layer-engine.
This bundle is definitely one of my favourite libraries on Kontakthub.

Great Bundle - Not only for BOC Fans
Very useful for all kinds of ambient Tracks that need that bit of psychedelic analog oldstyle feel. Highly recommended!
Demo - Ebb and Flow
Check out this demo from John Hislop using only sounds from the BOCS Librarie. Slight compression on each of the instances and some J37 tape delay on the pitched up arp.
