World Of Tape

Dark, Nostalgic, One of a Kind

Delve into the world of contemporary Tape Loops and Textures created by New York based experimental music designer, Emiliano Melis. Featuring a host of Dark, Nostalgic and Cinematic samples which are perfect for modern film scores and music productions.

This library has a wonderfully compelling and varied set of sounds which span multiple genres and is perfect for getting your creative juices flowing.


Product Type * Kontakt Instrument

We worked closely with New York based experimental music designer, Emiliano Melis, to define and curate a set of 100 unique sounds based upon his extensive work with Tape Loops. Separated into 5 distinct categories - Beats, Melodies, Patterns, Textures and Tones, these sounds capture Emiliano's wonderfully dark, nostalgic and cinematic musical world, which culminates into an amazingly inspiring and useful toolkit of sounds which are perfect for film composers, music producers and sound designers. 

We decided to release this instrument as both a Kontakt library and a Sample Pack, as we felt this set of sounds were far too special to be limited to the Kontakt world. The Kontakt version features features 125 custom presets, as well as access to a host of onboard effects, filters, reverbs and a sophisticated gater engine which allows you to create complex rhythms on the fly by simply pressing a keyswitch. The Sample Pack version features 100 WAVS of Emiliano's best sounds, divided into categories for easy access.
