8dio has introduced Catmosphere – a new sound library for Kontakt that features ‘deeply sampled kitty cat’.
Here’s what they have to say about Catmosphere:
Ever since he was a kitten, Fellini was not afraid to voice his opinion. Whether it is attention that he craves or dissatisfaction towards being cuddled, Fellini will let you know how he feels about it. This behavior may be largely credited to some of his Siamese ancestry, as Siamese cats are notorious for their excessive vocalization.
With his wild pitch-shifting meows, his deep thumping purrs and his ability to create a myriad of other feline noises, Fellini has proven to be the ultimate furry little instrument.
This library presents nearly every sound Fellini has the capability to make. Raw cat sounds are available for sound design as well as cat ambiences. Different catmospheres have been created and manipulated to fashion musical depth and texture, including purring, meowing, hissing, crying, chirping, eating, drinking, using the litter box, scratching, playing, growling, whining, and copious other cat actions for your sound sculpting pleasure.
About the recordings: Kitty wants what kitty wants and usually that includes not having a microphone shoved into his face – we have a shredded windscreen to prove it. Various recording techniques were implemented to capture every possible sound this little feline created. Treats were used to bribe him into talking. Contact mics were stealthy placed in an assortment area to record his behavior, ninja style! He was even cuddled excessively to ensure the best growls and hisses. The final result is a collection of all different kinds of cat sounds, some musical and some just plain bizarre. There are times where Fellini sounds human and others where he sounds otherworldly.
Welcome to the world of orange furry monsters.
