Granular Water Bottle

Kontakt 3+ / Apple EXS24

This the Klean Kanteen water bottle I drag around with me throughout my day. It has a very nice resonant ‘bonk’ sound to it. Originally I thought I’d sample it as more of a traditional percussion instrument and fill it with sand, rice and water etc.. But once I started applying granular synthesis to just a few hits that I recorded that was the end of the line for me. A whole weird world opened up


Two sets of articulations have been created - velocity switch hits and pad-like textures which have a grainy-percussive transient attack. The multi velocity samples employ as many as 20 samples per zone giving you a great deal of sonic variety controlled by velocity.  Also, Bo Clausen has contributed some very wild Kontakt scripting to this free library as well. For a brief overview of Bo’s KSP scripting read on. For detailed documentation be sure to read the nice Help Menu page that Bo has set up on Kontak’s front panel.
