AudioThing Pipes Lets You Make Music With Cardboard Tubes, PVC Pipes & Spray Cans

AudioThing has introduced Pipes – a collection of instruments derived from a variety of cardboard tubes, aluminum spray cans, dreamcatchers, and PVC pipes.

Here’s what they have to say about Pipes:

Even if the pitch of most of the sources is not stable, almost each instrument is tuned and playable with the keyboard. Each instrument features from 3 to 5 Round Robin samples and up to 3 velocity layers (usually cross-faded). One of the main instruments is a sampled Wah Wah Tube (aka Vibratone): bell-like sound with a very long release and a dedicated control for overtones. There are a couple of sound designed patches derived from the original instruments along with Kontakt Multis ready to play.

You can preview Pipes below.

  1. Very clean, and much more musical than most sampled real-world instruments! Sounds like a fun set to work with.
