“Honour thy error as a hidden intention.”

Oblique Strategies, Brian Eno/Peter Schmidt

In that spirit, we’ve created a library solely from errors. Some of them completely accidental, some where we just looked the other way whilst the accident happened. But all of them stem from a willful ignorance of instruction manuals and correct operating procedures.

Home movie soundtracks mangled with the wrong converters, musical toys tortured into revealing hidden sonic secrets and computer hard drives dying noisily, all of the sounds in this library started out life as errors.

Some of them have been further treated with a mixture of carefully applied computer processing and traditional studio techniques, some left as nature (never) intended.

Available in Kontakt, Reason Refill or .wav / REX2 formats. All formats are supplied at 24 bit / 48khz.
