We spent weeks testing out different sizes and styles of music boxes and attaching them to a range of different resonant surfaces such as tables, the back of pianos and other instruments. Once we found the perfect combination, we got to work recording the music boxes down to the finest details using high end Barcus Berry contact microphones. We aimed to explore unique sonic possibilities and capture the intimate, fragile tone but with a modern twist. This resulted in a music box like no other and a highly unique and playable virtual instrument.

We decided that this library would be the perfect addition to our highly popular Mini tools range, which features a collection of boutique virtual instruments designed to inspire and deliver at an affordable price. These libraries are truly the gems in our collection, as they define our mission at Sonixinema – to redefine the expectations of traditional instruments, and inspire new musical possibilities.

 

 

 

 

 

   

 

For this library we wanted to create an interface that was simple, yet flexible and effective. On the top left you can choose from one of our 10 custom music boxes. Some of these have been warped, processed and played with unusual articulations to create sounds that have never been created with a traditional music box before! On the right you can choose from one of 10 custom impulse responses which allows you to add space and depth to the sound, or change it entirely. Along the bottom of the interface there are attack and damping knobs which allow you to change the sound from long and open to short and muted. There are click and turn knobs to add some realism by introducing the sound of the mechanics of the music box. Finally on the left is a grit knob for adding light distortion, and a space knob which will control the send amount of the selected impulse response.
