Dual Music Box is a Kontakt instrument consisting of 2 multisampled music boxes. These 2 music boxes are complemented by a small collection of other sounds, designed to blend well with the music box tones. Each patch contains 3 layers, the 1st layer is the Victorian Music Box, the 2nd is a tiny, bright music box and the 3rd varies between patches, for example, glockenspiel/ synth strings/ string pluck. If you enjoyed the free Victorian Music box, but want more options for realism and sound design, then Dual Music box is perfect for you.
This product requires the paid version of Kontakt.

Dual music box is a continuation of Victorian Music box, and adds to that library in a number of ways, most notably with the addition of a new multisampled music box. The sound of this second music box is bright and plucky, when this is mixed with the victorian music box, you get a very pleasant, balanced sound. The new tiny music box that was sampled was only a few centimetres across, and was rather quiet. Just as the real thing did, this Kontakt instrument contains the clicks and whirrs of the music box as it turns.
The product comes with 24 presets, these utilise a variety of other sounds, for example: reversed samples, glockenspiels, plucked strings, etc. Mixing in these sounds make some great timbres. You can control the filter cutoff of these sounds with the mod wheel.
The audio demos are 100% DMB, they demonstrate the timbre and variety of sounds that you can make with this.
Included are 21 creative sound design impulses responses for the convolution reverb, and an effects pages, which has been broken into 2 sections for this product.
