SampleScience has released Pastoral Tones – a Kontakt instrument, inspired by the sound aesthetic of Boards Of Canada.
The plugin includes 62 preset sounds to choose, from featuring analog synthesizers, flutes, brasses, strings, electric pianos, sound FX, basses and atmospheres.
The acoustic instrument sounds have been sampled from public domain films produced between the 1950s and the 1970s. To thicken the sound, various sound modules have been added, including a sub oscillator, vinyl and film grain noise layers as well as field recordings sampled from public domain old films.
All the preset sounds are one sample stretched over 5 octaves of the keyboard.
Here’s the official audio demo:
Pastoral Tones is available for US $18.99.
