Klüsterjunkk: 11 noise/rattle/clatter percussion instruments
Scratches, thumps, slaps and scrapes on springs, chains, jugs, tubs, bits, bottles, buckets, tubes, plastics, pots, prongs, and pebbles. An essential collection of noisy instruments designed to add dirt and interest to your tracks—played solo or stacked on top of your existing drum kits.
The idea behind this collection was "controlled noise": busy textures, resonating tones, rough, ever-changing rattles and clatter, all made controllable and playable. It's the African bone rattle, Turkish hand cymbals, and Balinese Gamelan reimagined and reinvented using discarded junk from the consumer economy.
Playback and performance
Every clink, thunk, rattle, and shimmer has been captured in stereo—articulations that transform static, structured drum tracks into living, breathing rhythms that feel organic and vibrant. A simple GUI and very low CPU load make Klüsterjunkk a quick study.
120 custom impulse responses were engineered to bring added dimension: deep, thumping club ambiences, digital glitches, film, vinyl, and digital static, analog echoes and delay/special effects, stereo images, microphone effects, and multi-tap delays at 60/70/80/90BPM.
Klüsterjunkk was designed to sound messy, raw, bustling, and alive. 6 round-robin samples for every articulation of every instrument produce an ever-changing performance, while a Humanize feature adds life by randomizing velocity and adjusting quantization relative to tempo.
