Static Kit is a collection of noise samples primarily designed to mimic the sound coming from analog playback devices, as well as other noises of non-specific origin. There you can find samples reminiscent of vinyl crackle and dust, tape hiss, machinery hum and other warm and pleasant sounding textures. If mixed subtly, these layers can add real world flavor and non-linearity to almost any audio source.
Static Kit samples were created using a handful of hardware synthesizers and effects like Access Virus TI, Moog Sub Phatty, Korg Arp Odyssey, Elektron Digitone, Strymon ElCapistan; virtual signal processing like VCV Rack, Native Instruments Reaktor and Ableton Live. To make sure all the samples are as original as possible, no specialized ‘retro’ / ‘lo-fi’ / ‘vinyl’ and other vibe plugins were used — only creative chains of audio processors.
In a glance:
• 46 samples of artificial noise, pops, crackle etc
• 48 kHz 24 bit mono and stereo wave files
• Created using hardware and software synthesizers and effects
• No hyped lo-fi plugins used
• Seamlessly loop-able samples
The samples are intentionally significantly louder that they ‘should’ be — for easier audition purpose. Normally, such audio effects are blended into music very quietly.
