BOCS Volume 1
Boards Of Canada Synthesis
BOCS (Boards Of Canada Synthesis) is a Kontakt sample pack consisting of ten pads inspired by the electronic duo Boards of Canada. It's refreshingly different compared to previous efforts from various sample packs and vst synths. The reason why? These sounds have been created via the methods used by the group themselves. Vintage analog synths, 4-tracks, valve amps even VHS recorders were used to create a sample bank more authentic than anything we've heard before.
These sounds have a dirty, dusty, and dream like quality just like that elusive Boards of Canada sound. Weighing in at just under 1 gig you can be guaranteed a truly professional sound to use for your next stunning track. 10 sample banks each fit into two sound modules within the Kontakt GUI which consists of a patch blend option. Drop the volume on module 2 and use these samples as fantastic sounding individual patches. Combine any two of the ten different sample sounds and change settings such as volume, attack, release or perhaps add a high or low pass filter. With this awesome blend functionality you have the ability to create a vast array of new sounds tailored to your individual needs. Then there's the brilliant type of auto filter. You want a long silky filter sweep? you got it. Want to control the amount of oscillating micro tuning? Done. You just want those vintage analog synths moving and panning in some crazy manner whilst you control the oscillation speed in real time? Got it covered!
The Audiowarp prerequisite will always be that our samples are unique, top quality and highly usable and that we do all of this at the best price possible for you. BOCS Volume 1 Sample pack comes in WAV format and Kontakt format (5.3.1 or above) It will only run in demo mode in the Free Kontakt Player. The purchased download consists of 1 Kontakt NKI file which is configured to load and control all the samples in the ten WAV folders.
The GUI loads the samples in each of the two modules within the individual NKI. These wav files also run independently outside of Kontakt and are open for you to use in other applications. Quote from Anders Trentem?ller: "I just discovered Sampleism, an amazing platform for finding sounds that are not the usual bread & butter sounds. I personally look for quirky, imperfect instruments and really like the vibe of the BOCS pads. They seems to fit quite perfect in a mix . Can't wait to check out more stuff from Sampleism!"
You'll sound like BOC whether you want it or not
This is a very high quality Kontakt library. I don't even use it to make music, I just play a note and listen for a while. So warm and lush. Some of the sounds are instantly recognizable as recreations from certain synths in the BOC repertoire.BOC themselves would probably dissapprove of our digital methods though!
