Added a pack containing 16 .wav-format sounds made from a recording of a contact mic on a large metal bowl. Jingley sounds, scratches, vibrations from a cell phone, etc. See the Samples page to download the zip file.
Thanks to KVR user Erisian for reporting this bug. There was a silly mistake in the installer which made it create the subdirectories for the presets twice, making them invisible to the plugin itself.

It is best at percussion, fx sounds, and other weirdness, and isn’t necessarily designed to sound “good” in the traditional sense, though it can do standard VA-style sounds too. This probably just won’t be your first choice for such things.
See the VST page for downloads and audio demos. Note that this one has an installer available to make it easier to get the presets where they need to be.

The audio in this one was made by putting a contact mic on my humidifier, and adding lots of effects, both hardware and software. As usual, feedback loops we…
