MASSIVELY updated library from 2012. I had visited my toolshed already during recordings for the Cottage pack. I had sampled a few metal and iron tools, but had not dedicated as much time as I should.
Whereas it deserved it, I decided to get back to stay a little longer and to record systematically and better all sounds, which acoustically characterized it. Already my grandfather packed it (with a different intention though) with - nowadays nicely rusty - various metal and iron tools and items, so I started with recording clinks, hits and impacts of wrenches, screwdrivers, clams, nails, screws, wires, rakes, tiny cans, spades and hoes. Then I proceeded to saw for a while, later turned a microphone to plastic and metal buckets.
Recorded also banging against metal roof, small wooden wardrobe and floor and finally, picturesque squeakings of the door. I have hung items on wires, used their combinations to get some unusual sounds... then I took my time to play with the samples both in Kontakt and also outside of it to add more musical, tonal character to the library. The result is many drone and synth/pad patches, looped "soundscrapes" as well as a lot of multis consisting of the created patches (this is addictive). Whether you are scoring some dark fantasy or sci/horror PC game, or you just want to add some weird colours to your sound design, Toolshed offers you all you need to get lost in underground mines, abandoned factories, frozen spaceships and their dark corners...
What's in? METALS - shovels, rakes, spades, tools, nails, buckets, bins, tins, tacks... WOOD - handles, barres, door hits, screeches, squeaks, knocks, beam hits, drawer rustles... LO-FI - The original Toolshed samples from the times it was firstly released. The Folder contains various metal, wood, plastic sounds caught on mic from another perspective. SOUNDSCRAPES - looped samples of mostly metalish nature, created using various metal objects. TONAL - category of standardly tuned samples. EXTRA - additional metal and wood sets here as well as many Drone (17) and Synth/Pad (30) patches, which were created using various Toolshed samples effected outside of Kontakt... more info in the PDF manual.
