CAPSUN ProAudio are proud to bring you the second instalment in our bestselling Textures series, the series focused on innovative recording of organic audio and the creation of textural layers using high-end digital processing, lo-fi analog gear and experimental editing.
Textures - Raw Fields & Dusty Cuts Vol.1 is a shade under 2.0GB including over 100 Raw Field recordings, 60 Twisted Loops, 132 Dusty Cut One Shots and 15 custom samplers for Kontakt 4+, Reason NN-XT, Logic EXS24 and Sfz.
The collection had been recorded, curated and creatively edited by Matt Borzoni, co-creator of the ‘CAPSUN Presents’ series and co-founder of CAPSUN ProAudio. He is a mix engineer, sound designer and field recording specialist focused on the fine arts of moulding found sound into acousmatic soundscapes that are ideal for musicians looking for a truly one off sonic pallete.
Textures - Raw Fields & Dusty Cuts Vol.1 takes inspiration from unique locations around the globe. Over the past 2 years Matt Borzoni took his recording gear with him whilst he travelled through countries and time zones, capturing moments and building an audio scrapbook of his journey. Using a wide range of microphones and recorders and choosing the right one for each destination - a Rode NT4 with a high-end hard drive recorder, contact mics, a Rode NT1-A, a T-Bone Shotgun mic, a Superlux stereo condenser mic, a trusty Shure SM58, in-built mobile phone mics, a home cassette recorder and even a dictaphone! The right tool for each job - from sitting in the woods at night and standing in streams to recording the sounds of building sites and hot kitchens. From raw field recordings to lo-fi dusty captures and literally everything in between.
The 60 Twisted loops have been created to show how we use the raw audio - pitched, chopped, glitched, stretched, granular editing, side-chains and filtering. Loads of inspiring loops to layer into your production or take as influence for your own edits.
Each unique Raw folder in the collection contains:
Exterior - Various outside locations including Italian church bells, walking through echoing tunnels, rolling trucks , metallic work sites and basketball by the beach.
Interior - Internal locations ranging from grand caverns, footsteps in church and making a ferry sea crossing to domestic captures of creaking doors, kitchen work and noisy air vents.
Metal - Clangs and bangs from industrial modern machinery, strikes and scrapes on metallic surfaces, beer barrels and wires. Even containing rattling chains from a 16th century torture chamber!
Musical - Captures from urban locations such as performing guitars, pianos and flutes in the street and experimental recording of parts of traditional instruments such as a double bass neck and a piano soundboard using contact mics.
Nature - Atmospheric raw soundscapes from around the world including birds, cicadas, a dawn chorus and a real babbling brook.
Noise & FX - Diving into the strange world of ASMR we close mic’d everyday items such as old tape machines, a frothy beer, paper scrunching and electrical feedback.
People - The world’s population going about their business - schoolyards, workers, coffee shops, tourists, infants and travel.
Percussive - Gongs, spring drums, hole cutters, match boxes, drunk drumming and house keys scraped across a xylophone. Unique to chop and add to drum layers.
Travel - Out and about - stations, planes, the London Underground, boats and arriving in new towns.
Urban - What you’d hear wondering around the inner city including buskers, drunks, late night revellers, parades and traffic jams.
Weather - Perfect late night captures of rain, storms, thunder and lightning. Leaves in the forest and roaming the backstreets on a cold day.
This expansive collection is ideal for downtempo electronica, turned down rap, chill trap, classic hip-hop, future garage, chillwave, ambient house and techno, atmospheric DnB and future beats - any genre that comes alive with organic textures added to the mix.
