The Horrorphone

Made in collaboration with Robert Pepper from EffectsWorks, The Horrorphone is a unique and disturbing cinematic Kontakt library built from 460+ sample recordings of a custom built percussion/effects instrument. Played with a bow, beater, and hands triggering the most horrifying and uncomfortable stingers, drones, hits and much, much more.

Our Audio Craftsmen meticulously edited, balanced and programmed 48 different patches and integrated them into our Kontakt interface, giving Film Composers and Music Producers a suite of unique textures to use in their tracks. These sounds are perfect for horror scores, trailer percussion loops, rhythmic tension, electronic music and film score cues with an element of atonality.

The Main Articulations include: Percussion, Cymbals, Knockers, High Mid and Low Hits, Metal Bars, Shakes, Springs, Wood Vibrations and Various Drum Kits.

But we didn’t stop there… As always with our Kontakt library releases, our in-house Composers designed an eclectic array of designed patches. Pads, arps, drones, EDM leads, horror alarms, pulses and even screaming cymbals give the user both tonal and atonal material to layer with their percussion, and build a haunting, metallic texture into their sound.

The 344 Audio Kontakt interface provides a variety of controls that encourage experimentation with the patches. The built in Arpeggiator is great for generating hundreds of percussion/lead variations on the fly, while the Main View provides a set of parameters perfect for shaping the sounds your way.

Kontakt 5.8.1 or higher is required.
NOTE: This library does not run in the free ‘Kontakt Player’.
