Toybox 2 | Noisemakers, Speaking Devices and Plastic Gizmos
Toybox 2 is a collection of multi-sampled toys, speaking devices, handmade wooden instruments, classic noisemakers & battery-powered plastic gizmos.
This pack includes recordings of a Ukelele, Wooden Xylophone, Maracas, Jingle Bells, and classic Casio MT-30 tones. All of the instruments are designed to evoke childhood nostalgia or inspire your productions to take on playful and quirky new directions.
Toybox 2 was recorded in 24 bits with either a stereo XY mic pair (Neumann KM84’s) or through a tube DI box. In some cases there was tube compression applied (Pendulum OCL-2). Everything has been programmed to emulate the original instruments.
As usual Puremagnetik has augmented things a bit further to allow instant Macro tweaking and sonic mutilation well beyond the capabilities of the original instruments. Toybox comes in Ableton Live Pack, Kontakt Instrument and Logic Library formats.
Toybox 2 Features
• 11 multi-sampled musical toys • 2 menus of sound fx and speech fragments • A set of electronic and acoustic percussion sounds
Delving into some rare finds, ToyBox 2 explores oddities such as the Otamatone from Japan, a handmade wooden electronic Sonica and a fold-up keyboard with surprisingly unique lo-fi tones.
In addition, ToyBox 2 comes packed with 2 menus of sound fx and speech fragments from some talking toys. These patches include NumberFarm and Alphabeta, the latter having the spoken alphabet, but also an additional set of consonant and vowel sounds for reconstructing words and phrases.
