Acoustic Musical Toys Sampled


Here's what Universal SoundBank/UVI SoundSource have to say about Acoustic Toy Museum...
For the first time, hundreds of musical toys were used to create a magical and unique sound library that will add innocence and freshness into your productions.
Deeply multi-sampled in 24 bits / 96 kHz and meticulously recorded in the very best conditions using world-class microphones and Class-A equiment, each instrument sounds authentic and soulful.
Several passionate owners of musical toy collections gave us access to very rare and sometimes very old musical toys. Even a famous museum opened its doors to our insane sound design team : the Musée des Art Décoratifs, sharing the same building with one of the most famous museums in the world : the Musée du Louvre in Paris.
The result is a flashy selection of inspiring instruments ready to play with: Toy Pianos, Musical Boxes, Ancient Automates, Wood and Metal Xylophones, Mini Bells, Baby Drums, Toy Guitars, Ukulele, Melodicas, Small Accordions, Harmonicas, Children Percussions, Funny Horns, Musical Gadgets, Musical Cubes, Plastic Tubes and much more.
Loops and phrases are also included for instruments like old music boxes ; and let's not forget the Baby Drums and Toy Guitar sections that were played by skillful musicians in top-grade studios.
  • Toy Pianos and Keys: By far, this is the most complete selection of Toy Pianos around the word, featuring the famous Michelsonne pianos, rare wood pianos and other keyboards.
  • Xylo and Metal: A fair amount of xylophones and metallophones, sanza, and Clavi-Harp.
  • Children Bells: Simple bells, key-triggered bells, and chimes.
  • Toy Guitars: Two small guitars and two ukuleles. Multisamples, chords and loops expertly played in various tempo and for every key, so you can play riffs in any song.
  • Music Boxes: An Aladdin's cave of music boxes! From old and crispy models, to the most clean with typical tones. Presets with different samples randomly played for every note are included for the classic models.
  • Baby Drums (L) : Two different drum sets, a children school one and a very cheap cardboard one, both recorded in a professional studio and played with talent by a monster studio session drummer.
  • Baby Percussions (L) : More than a dozen different percussions to cover a wide-range of needs. Loops played by an excellent percussionnist also included.
  • Melodicas and co: Along with the prominent melodicas, you'll find other reed instruments like accordions and harmonicas.
  • Blow Toys: Recorders, whistles, tiny trumpets... basically anything that can be blown into.
  • Musical Gadgets: Everything that couldn't be sorted out: from the giggle stick to the puzzling boom whackers.
  • Ancient Automates: Animated plush animals with ancient looks.
  • Kindergarten: Warning: you must at most be 36-month old to play with this category. Roly-poly toys, moo boxes, play centers, everything the youngests need.
