I love finding samples that throw people off. Mostly it’s the texture of the instruments in the sample, maybe it has that lo-fi feel to it – also something organic is always great. A few days ago I stumbled upon this tiny Rubber Band Box Kontakt library with recordings of rubberbands stretched across an old box of cigars. This sounds cool as hell already, right? Well, maybe that’s probably why the sounds of the Rubber Band Box instantly hit a chord with me.
Rubber Band Box for Kontakt
This Kontakt library was created by MODWHEEL’S Steve Roche. Created using a cigar box, 4 rubber bands, a bridge and pick up. While the rubber band box has proven itself to be a versatile live instrument, it is now an even more versatile chromatic virtual instrument for use in Kontakt. The Rubber Band Box includes 5 Kontakt patches. You’ll get a bass, tabla and timpani sounding instruments to synth sounding pads and leads. The patches all feature delay, reverb and distortion controls.
