Free Sample LIbrary Promises The Latest Buzz

Tonehammer Releases Bee Sound Set      09/10/10

Tonehammer has released a new free audio sample library based on the sounds of bees and created this video to demonstrate it. 

Here's what Troels at Tonehammer has to say about the sample library:

I wanted to see how far I could take the recordings of bees into the realm of music.

he bee produces about 200-230 wing flaps pr. second, which is enough to generate a nice, rich sounding buzz. I recorded a bunch of bee sounds and manipulated them through a variety of tools (including timefreezers, delays, filters, glitch modules etc). I then decided to add some more human elements to it (vocals, guitars, grooves etc) and wrapped it up by adding full symphony orchestra and choirs on it during the end. Besides the bee sounds - the majority of samples are coming from the tonehammer.com sample catalog.

Yes - it reminded me a bit of some of the things that Diego Stocco has done.
