Creative Junk is an organic percussion suite designed to fire your imagination.
It was created with hits from everyday objects of many shapes and sizes that were carefully selected for their tone and character and their special interaction when played as a set.
Industrial heaters, bouncing balls, bottles, jugs, and filing cabinets, Creative Junk is a goldmine of unique hits, quirky transients and inspirational tones, all recorded using 3 mic positions, thus allowing the user to incorporate the beautiful acoustics of our Cinematic live room using the ambient stereo pair, or to create a tighter sound with the close mic setting.
From the Tom Waits Junk drums sound to a melodious Solaris style tuned percussion, Creative Junks tonal remit is far reaching and will bring a fresh perspective to your projects.
When I’m writing I’m always looking for inspirational sounds, I want sounds that haven’t been created by conventional instruments. This propels me to seek out unusual or abstract objects to manipulate and sample. I wanted to put together a collection of these objects and then sample them with multiple mic positions, and give them an interface that would allow each sound to be tuned and blended individually or as groups across 3 different mic positions.

Exercise balls, basket balls, table tennis balls, footballs and others were recorded using 3 mic positions in our Cinematic live room. The fun begins by switching 'Global' to 'Local', which allows each note to be sculpted individually, meaning each bounce can have it's own mic position/level, pitch, pan and filter setting.
The final product is a 1.03 GB, 2050 sample, atonal and tuned percussion collection for Kontakt, made up of 20 nkis and featuring 100 multi sampled objects, each with up to 7 velocity layers.
