Welcome to Soundiron’s Kazoo library!
This library was created with the help of a world-class kazoo ensemble, featuring some of the finest hand-crafted wax paper and plastic wind instruments that money can buy. We gathered together four of the finest kazoo virtuosos in the world to capture this power ensemble collection. We recorded this brilliant sample set in our own private studios.
This library includes features such as delicate automation control, 4-times round robin on all sustains and 4-times round robin on all release triggers, advanced programming and playability and special custom instruments that feature our life-like hall acoustic simulation technology. All in all, we feel this is the most powerful professional-grade kazoo ensemble library available anywhere in the world.
*This library was originally published as “Kazoo” by Tonehammer.
For solo kazoo patches, we recorded each and every semitone from G#2 – D4, with three independent levels of expression, from steady, to vibrato and all the way up to full tremolo. Each note is continuously looping, with an average loop length of over ten seconds. All notes feature release-triggered samples.
The ensemble patches are the shear essence of power. Legato scripting for commanding leads and driving melody lines, with tight programming to allow a strident, confident and virtuosic playing style. This instrument uses our own custom epic hall reverb convolution to elevate the sound to the most brilliantly soaring heights. This state-of-the-art convolution technology uses live impulse response signatures, which were captured with expert precision and care by our own in-house engineering team, in one of the finest recording halls in all the world.
