Zero-G Kitchenology – Domestic Percussion Machine
An incredible useful and fun, percussive Kontakt instrument using sounds from the kitchen!
Zero-G KITCHENOLOGY is an incredible useful and fun, percussive Kontakt instrument that can also be used for sound design and special fx as well as composition. It enables the user to create unique sounds using unusual sources, midi grooves, and IR samples. KITCHENOLOGY was created by recording the amazing multi-instrumentalist Charlie Dalin playing 48 different kitchen items with 12 round robins for each sample. Some of the recorded items such as cups and glasses can be played over a musical octave.
KITCHENOLOGY contains 4 busses each with 12 individual instruments to give a total of 48 kitchen instruments/utensils all recorded in high definition 48KHz 24bit audio.
There are also 114 separate convolution reverbs which when used on each instrument bus can create a myriad of even more unique sounds. Some samples were recorded with different additions such as adding cloth to a bowl to get a kick drum sound and to make the library as usable and percussive as possible. Additional available editable parameters enable endless sound creation possibilities.
KITCHENOLOGY also includes a huge selection of MIDI grooves covering different styles, tempos, and time signatures as well as 34 mix snapshots. Whether your project is a traditional song, cinematic music, or sound effect creation, you will find KITCHENOLOGY fits the part perfectly!
