Sound Dust 1900 Bundle
This great value bundle combines the dULCITONE1900² and the Ghost Dulcitone 1900.
See below for further details on the products in the bundle.
Originally designed and manufactured in Scotland in the 1800's, and with allegedly only 2000 in existence the DULCITONE is a portable keyboard that was made for missionaries to hump around remote African village churches to help perk up hymn services. It has a very basic piano action with spring loaded felt covered hammers striking small magnet shaped tuning forks. Its a bit like a Fender Rhodes electric piano without the electric bits, and has a very lovely woody, clonky glockenspiel/celesta kind of sound.
This is the lovely sister to Dulcitone1884², a 16-year younger beauty with a slightly jinglier and more even tone which really compliments the butch woody clunk of the 1884 version. Think of dULCITONE1900² as Keira Knightly and Dulcitone1884² as Kristin Scott Thomas.....or maybe whatshisface in Twilight compared to George Clooney.
Seven velocity layers of binaural recording add up to around 500mb of samples. There's a wee video of her in action which tells you more about her than can be put into words.

GHOST DULCITONE 1900
An ancient and rare keyboard invigorated with nifty digital witchcraft.
This is a magical sounding impossible hybrid instrument that takes the rare and beautiful woody jingle of the dulcitone and transforms it into an extended dusty swoon that goes to infinity and beyond (although technically that's not really possible is it ?) If Tim Burton was a musical instrument he would make sounds like the Ghost Dulcitone 1900.
The starting point of Ghost Dulcitone 1900 is sister instrument the dULCITONE 1900² a 100 year old acoustic keyboard which is binaurally multisampled with 7 velocity layers. Then each sample is used as a convolution reverb impulse and 20 second bursts of Moog Voyager generated analogue white noise are blasted through it to create a whole new sample set of dusty, metallic bowed sounding, infinite duclitone-iness.
