The Free Camera is a kontakt instrument and a series of samples that come from some custom recordings of the venerable Canon 7D that we shoot all of our videos with.  It is excellent for both creating clean, straight camera sounds and as elements for clicky UI type designs.

There are also some cool designed shutter snaps that are bigger and more stylized than the flat, clean ones.


Malfunktion is a series of recordings from various software synths that we use to create fun glitches. as well as UI  beeps and clicks.  Its another toolkit of strange sounds that are useful in adding spice to interface sound design.

The Kontakt instrument adds a layer of randomness that the user can create interesting movements with by playing the same groups of keys repeatedly.

micro magnetic-free


Micro magnetic comes from a pair of magnets that are shaped like eggs and sound like rattlesnakes as the magnetic pull causes them to collide faster and faster.

They make a super cool texture for electronic music and other rhythmic compositions.

shrieking dulcimer-free

The shrieking dulcimer is an instrument based on the bows, scratches and dissonant impacts of an old dulcimer recorded by Evan Arnett and Justin Shelton.

In a way, it’s a mini version of our beloved forgotten zither, and it does similar horror and creepy type musical things.  Its is a beautiful piece of creepy art, and we love it.

ORION is a fully featured drum set and step sequencer built for Native Instruments Kontak (vers 5.5 or higher)t.
