At ANR we’re all about new and inspiring small companies, so when we heard about Kwonky Instruments and their unique sample library resources for Kontakt we thought you should too. The people at Kwonky create sonically unusual, atmospheric and quirky instruments from original field recordings and other processed sound and noise.
They Kwonky in February 2019 and they’ve grown pretty quickly over the last six months. They currently have 13 individual instruments in their catalogue and 6 instrument bundles.
There are currently 3 free instruments available so that producers can sample a bit of Kwonky for free.
Their latest instrument is a bundle called Cyclotronic Signals. The collection is made from electromagnetic interference, natural radio waves and VLF recordings undertaken by us using a variety of technology and techniques. The result is a set of glitchy, tonal and characterful sounds that are control-able and shapable, but contain elements of unpredictable behaviour.
