Wrenchenspiel VST is a custom instrument containing a large array of 31 deep-sampled wrenches, yup … wrenches!
The wrenches were modified (carved) to be in perfect tune and we managed to get some of them to sustain their notes up to 10 seconds. The wrenches were played with everything from soft to hard mallets, muted variations, hammers, hotrods, modified metal objects, other wrenches, nails, drumsticks and we even ran electricity through the wrenches for extra punishment. The end-result is a highly versatile, tonal percussion instrument that can sound like anything from a Glockenspiel to Celeste, from traditional Rhodes to absolutely brutal mutilated music sound design.
The Wrenchenspiel contains 18 different core articulations and over 1.200 samples. In addition the library also contains a step-based sequencer (aka Wrenchenquencer/arp), live-triggered FX (ex. Delay, Reverb, Screamer, Lofi, Rotator, Fuzz) and our dual convolution reverbs containing both sound designed and more traditional hall based impulses.
Welcome to the wonderful, wild, wicked, world of Wrenchenspiel.
