Yet another tiny set of two instruments, made of plastic building bricks manufactured by a Danish toy company for 1-5 year old kids (the larger bricks, hence the name “Dumplo”). A brilliant source of higher middle frequency percussion. Recorded with a Zoom H4n and OKM mics, no processing in the middle.
Dumplo_sml has only four velocity levels and eight round robin groups, Dumplo_lrg has 6 velocity levels and again 8 round robin groups, with the same random parameters: pitch, eq. AET is present here as well, so unfortunately no Kontakt 2 or 3, K4 only.
This one was used in Alan Wake’s level 15, by the way. A small addition, yet it provided a lot of movement, especially due to a long stereo S/H Noise IR sample used for processing these.
By the way, it’s incredible how fast one can work if you’ve set up your Kontakt’s user settings (controllers, for instance) and done some templates for percussive instruments, looped stuff, whatever. A quick mouse hand helps as well.
