Glass Harp sample library features the sound of chromatically tuned wine glasses.
For this latest Detunized project more than 80 wine glasses where collected on flea markets and junk shops. After carefully separating the wheat form the chaff instrument maker Sergey Karamyshev ended up with 39 glasses that got tuned by filling each one with a certain amount of water. This way a lovely sounding instrument with a range of 3 octaves (D3 to E6) came up.
It has a lively timbre and produces rich sounds with strong overtone content.
For Glass Harp library the complete instrument got sampled both in stereo and close-miked mono, each time with a legato and a staccato pass.For the sake of an even more realistic feel an additional release sound layer was edited.

Kyma Ambiences is the third sound effects bundle created by Matteo Milani (U.S.O. Project). The generation of these “Artificial Reality Ambiences” starts entirely in Symbolic Sound Kyma – during the development of projectgenesismovie.com – from the processing of white and pink noise by filtering – in the time/spectral domains – and convolving these sources with custom FM, additive, formant and granular synthesis. The composition’s resource of sound material is drawn solely from these processed stochastic sound elements: coloured noise is a raw material already full of life and can be sculpted into a variety of temporal forms, movements and textures. The interaction with Kyma was typical of a composer who explored a device’s potential for sound transformation like a musical instrument. The goal was to obtain an organic and acoustic quality using only a restricted sound source, in order to evoke real spatial characteristics attached to each invented sound.
The sound effects collection will be released on May 25th @ 96kHz (native), plus publishing a budget version @ 48kHz (resampled). Kyma Ambiences is not only available in these two packages, but also as dual-layer separated “Elements”, suitable for recombinant stratification, varispeed and spatial positioning in the surround field:
All of the audio files have been embedded with metadata for detailed and accurate searches in your asset management software.
As the previous libraries, loudness normalization helped me to match the gain of multiple sound files to the target level of -23 LUFS (tech.ebu.ch/loudness).

“We’ve designed this library to be as flexible as possible: as well as the extensive processed section, the unprocessed source samples are also included as they were originally recorded – straight-from-the-synth. A third section includes selected samples bounced through special processes to add character, tone, warmth and punch, using Vinyl and Reel-to-Reel ¼ inch Tape with multiple saturation levels.
We feel that this attention to detail will translate into a unique, creative and useful addition to any electronic music producer’s toolkit.”
