Sound Dust has released Found Maschine, their latest Kontakt rhythm engine and Maschine expansion that they say features found, broken, bruised and pre-loved sounds for Maschine 2. Here's the details from Sound Dust's Pendle,
"Based on the sample set of the Modular Chaos Engine #1: Found Maschine contains over 700 warm, organic, found samples gathered from my travels with binaural portable recording equipment. They are lovingly sculptured into 196 Maschine instruments for you to use as unlikely sound sources for your music.
Sonic highlights include : the ghost of Thomas Carlyle, a very broken double bass, lawns being mown, beards being shaved, celery, snow, a rainy tent in France, ancient gramophone recordings of marmalade heir Alexander Keiller talking about the standing stones of Avebury, huge oil tanks, onions, pigs, fireworks, Stradivaruis saw...I could go on.
These aren't just random field recordings, they have all been meticulously crafted into usable drumkits for a wide variety of rhythmic possibilities.
Great for anything from Tom Waits hippity hop, quirky lo-fi Mr Scruff-iness, wonky FKA Twigs wooze to itchy glitch pop and dark and noble film score throbbiness."
