Frozenplain Terracotta KONTAKT SCD-SONiTUS | 463.980 MB
The idea of using flowerpots to make music is pretty insane, but you would be surprised at how nice sounding and versatile this library is. It includes 7 layers of sound to mix, an arpeggiator and an effects page. It’s sampled with 4 velocity layers and 4 round robin making the rhythms from the arp still sound natural. Terracotta can also make smooth ambiences, mostly done with the custom convolution impulses.
25 multi-sampled terracotta flowerpots
8 different variation presets
Recorded at 96khz/ 24bit
4 round robin/ velocity layers
Effects page; tempo synced delay, rotator, distortion and reverb. With presets!
7 layers of sound to mix in and for unique sound design
Built in arpeggiator
Great sound design tool (pads/ ambiences)
Terracotta consists of 25 multisampled pots, each one unique in size, shape and age. Some are old handmade Victorian pots and others are smooth and newer. However, the terracotta tone is consistent throughout; only the subtleties of each vary. Each flowerpot was hit with a soft wooden edge multiple times and at different velocities. These stereo recordings are then handpicked and arranged so that for each terracotta pot there are 4 velocity layers with 4 round robins per layer. A lot of attention was paid to capturing the beauty of each sound.
The library works great as a rhythmic tool, it comes with a built in arpeggiator, allowing you to program in the velocities and the order which the notes are played. This instrument is very editable though, the 3 pages of scripting have plenty of controls for you to shape the sound and create new tones. You can mix between 7 different layers of sound which are designed to complement the flowerpot sound.
On the arp page you can select 1 of 6 rhythm presets using the load buttons. To save your own custom patterns, just press the save button next to whichever slot you like.
Terracotta comes with 8 ready-made variations; each one of these is instantly playable offering a variety of options for setting the sound in the mix. The variation called Sustained, for example, uses reverse flowerpot samples mixed with an organic sounding pad to create a sound backdrop. Weighted is a preset that uses samples from a larger terracotta bowl to add warmth and more low-end to the sound. Here are all the different layers that you can mix between:
Terracotta – the main flowerpot samples.
Resonation – samples from a large terracotta bowl with a lower pitch.
Celesta – flowerpot patch altered with a transient shaper to make a softer bell-like sound.
Steel String – a simple steel string pluck.
Pad – an organic sounding pad made from granular fiddling.
Music Box – a simple music box.
Reverse – these are reverse terracotta samples.
If you have the ‘Info’ button at the top of Kontakt selected, then when you mouse over these controls a brief description will be shown at the bottom.
The custom convolutions are made from a variety of sources; some are synthesised and some are real recordings. It is always surprising which sounds work great as impulses, Shivering Cold for example is a hideous synthesised noise, but when put though a convolution reverb it turns into a beautiful ambient backdrop. You can use these impulses in your other productions; all 21 of them can be found as .wav files in the Resources folder.
