Product Overview

SAWmonium brings you 10 very unique Kontakt patches which are, as usual, very cinematic in sound and geared towards the horrific, quirky, or even mysterious!

We utilized a cello bow on the wood saw and hacksaw to create some very strange and unique FX sounds... some of which harken back to the odd FX from the Jerry Goldsmith scores of the 60s and 70s.

The bow also helped us to create some very usable tonal staccs, really creepy growls, and one patch which is a definite nod to Zimmers' Joker motif from The Dark Knight.

The FULL version of Kontakt 4.2.4 is required - NOT Kontakt Player

In Detail

A basic woodsaw, a small mitre back saw, an everyday hacksaw.... who knew what musical awesomeness these everyday tools held?  We had a clue, but until we started using a cello bow on them and banging them with the likes of mallets, rattans, and sticks... these were just for sawing wood, metal, or girls in wooden boxes on stage in half.  Welcome to the horror of our newest unEarthed release... The SAWmonium!

The bowed sustains patch is tuned and loops... it can have the sound of a gritty glass harmonica OR a melodic percussion instrument (when the attack is played with), overall it is very playable.  Like AMP, this release has a very robust GUI which includes, pitch control, attack / delay control, EQ control, and 13 custom impulse responses selectable right on on the GUI!

Handtool Multitasking Music

UnEarthed Sampling appear to be quite the frugal, eco-conscious group of developers. After completing their home repairs, they did not merely return the tools to the tool chest, they explored the audio properties of the tools before returning them to their proper storage location. And the audio properties uncovered were simply amazing. Sawmonium packs an eerie, ethereal metallic sound into a GUI that is appropriately aesthetically-pleasing and sports a very intuitive workflow. This is a library that one simply has to explore in order to appreciate what is inside. A nice plate or spring reverb interaction unlocks even more potential. This library could find a home in several different genres and has the potential to spark a new chapter in the user's creative process.

Love these guys

I love everything unEarthed Sampling do. This is great if you want creepy scrapey stuff, but can also do gentle pads and clanks.
