Free kontakt library – Cottage

This library consists of various sounds recorded without serious intention or concept on one of my many visits of Dererov Mlyn (Derer´s Mill), a place, where our cottage stands. Dererov Mlyn is a small settlement about 10 km away from the town I live in.

Free sample library for Kontakt: Speak & Spell

A much-loved and ubiquitous toy from the 1970s and 80s, Texas Instruments Speak & Spell has found a new lease of life in electronica in the last few years. People discovered that if you tinker with its circuits and voice chips, glitching, looping, and other interesting effects can be achieved. ‘Circuit Bending’, as this is known, is said to have begun in the late 1960s, and its invention is attributed to one Reed Ghazala, after a fortuitous accident with a toy amplifier.
