The Musique Box is a complete collection of deeply sampled music boxes with extended content, powerful interface and cutting-edge features. Soundiron recorded 11 music boxes in different environments and configurations, from dry studio to lush concert hall, and even submerged underwater. They then manipulated the sound to create a wide range of additional atmospheric sustains, pads and ambient instruments, plus an array of tuned ambient pads, evolving atmospheres and unique dynamic FX to open up a wealth of creative possibilities right out of the box.
The goal wasn't to simply deliver the most comprehensive music box library possible, but to provide a valuable creative resource that turns these humble music boxes into heavy duty compositional power tools.
The Musique Box includes a large collection of bonus content and creative features you won't find anywhere else:
24 sustaining tuned sound design instruments, atmospheres, tonal ambiences and special effects
8 FX banks with special dynamic parameter shaping on the modwheel
10 added custom nki presets that explore the extended features
70 custom environmental, room and FX reverbs integrated into every preset
The Uberpeggiator meta-arp system with velocity step sequencer, humanization, adaptive modes, roll simulation, chord and scale control and custom pattern loading (K5 only)
All of the music boxes can be easily loaded and shaped within the master preset. You can create and blend new instruments instantly in real-time, with full control over every aspect of each sound layer directly on the front panel. The note range was extended to span the full scale, exposing powerfully rich bass tones and tight, percussive high notes well outside the limits of an ordinary music box.
Also included are sustaining tuned ambient pads and evolving atmospheres and a set 8 stylized special-effect music boxes in the BoxFX bank, with special parameter shaping on the modwheel. Plus, the library features 10 bonus custom presets including the bright Glockencelest and haunting Glass Armonica. These demonstrate some of the limitless creative potential you'll find in the main Musique Box preset with just a few knob turns.
