Morphzilla - contribute sounds to be included in this new library

MORPHZILLA UI

MORPHZILLA UI

This is my most ambitious Kontakt library project to date and I really can't wait to share this with you. It's already developing into a bit of a monster but I want it to include more unique sounds and I would like to invite you to contribute sounds to be included in this new library.

Following on from where Micromorph left off, Morphzilla aims to provide more tools to develop unique sound patches. Field recordings, found sounds and other sound oddities from my sonic adventures have been processed to create a palette of wonky and often beautiful textures to create a mixture of organic and non organic sounds. Combine, twist, morph and automate to stretch the possibilities of this unique library and create infinite* sonic patches. Includes dusty pads, nasty impacts to beautiful textured soundscapes and more. 

But this is just the start - edit the sample start of each sound, reverse and morph the samples in each menu independently, then combine and crossfade these using the modulation wheel. One patch and 2 sample menus holding over 300 unique, organically cultivated and beautifully sculptured sounds. 

Although these sounds will sound great out of the box, there aren't really any preset patches in here - It's ready and waiting for you to delve in to the simple user interface and create unique instrument patches for each project. This will sound like no other sample library you own - morphing between music and sound design, it's dark, twisted and nasty but also uniquely beautiful too. If you a little bit fed up with preset sounds and want to create something a little bit special for your projects, then this library is for you.

After a few months of research, recording (and late nights), here it is - Micromorph - a small Kontakt library of broken, sculptured, bent and demolished samples, based on field recordings, broken circuits and other sound oddities. It's unique, wonky and imperfect, delicate and nasty. 

Micromorph v1 is no longer available to buy - Micromorph 2 is available here
