Introducing "The Music Box" for Kontakt 4/5, and EXS 24 - by BadCat Media Group new
      #986490 - 09/05/12 09:17 AM
Introducing "The Music Box" Sample Library, by Bad Cat Media Group. A deeply sampled music box instrument for EXS 24 and Kontakt 4/5

We took 16 different music boxes and meticulously recorded each one note by note to create a highly expressive music box instrument with all the nuances and intricacy of the real thing. In an effort to make an instrument of the highest quality & detail, we made sure to include every subtly possible. Each crank, creek, scratch, buzz, ting and scrape was left in and the result is something quite organic and simply inspiring to play. The entire library was recorded using Ribbon Microphones at 24bit 48khz.

There is a minimum of 6 velocity layers per note. Due to the nature of the music box and the general range of such devices we ended up with quite a few velocity layers for some pitches (40+). Instead of using round robins we decided to use many velocity layers so that a performance could easily be altered but not be random.

The Music Box is an intuitive instrument that is sure to stimulate creative ideas. It is capable of childlike nursery rhymes, eerie melodies, enchanting passages and much more. The Kontakt version of The Music Box not only contains the basic instrument patch but also 10 highly useful factory patches derived from our samples. These patches range from pads and electric piano-like sounds to extra terrestrial sound fx. The Kontakt version will only work in the full version of Kontakt 4.5 and higher. It will also work in Kontakt player in demo mode which lasts 30 minutes.

We are very excited about the unique quality of "The Music Box" sample library and would like to offer an introductory price of 19.99.

Over 750 samples in a 420mb download.

Check out the sound cloud links and demo videos to hear it first hand.

All the best from all of us here at Bad Cat Media Group.

Hey Guys!
Well, this is something that we have been pondering, so, having said that! We @ BadCat Media Group have decided to bundle these 2 instruments together for the low price of $19.99. So for anyone who has purchased Kontakt, or the EXS 24 instrument, You will be receiving a download link for the other format in your "my purchases section". At this point, we will continue to develop for Kontakt while including an EXS 24 Instrument patch aswell.

In addition to the the above, we are also working on a distilled patch which will be a "cleaner" version with less of the organic sounds included in the original patch. This will be a free bonus update available for all those who have purchased.

All the best - BadCat

Hey everyone,

Just wanted to thank all our current customers and everyone who has expressed interest in The Music Box update and The Mini Keys. In fact, there has been so much interest that we are actually overloading our current server, so we are planning on moving our site to a new one that can support a much bigger volume.

Some of you have been experiencing issues so we are currently doing everything in our power to get up and running quickly and better than ever.

We will be taking a day or two to re-platform our site to the new server.

We apologize in advance for the wait and we will keep you fully informed about these changes by email and on forums.

Thanks so much for your patience!

All the best! From all of us @ Bad Cat Media Group
