MYSTERY BOX 3 – Clocks & Cinematic Rhythms

Mystery Box 3 is a sample library based on cinematic clocks and rhythms.  We’ve meticulously sampled ancient clocks, old mechanical devices, gears and wheels, mechanisms from industrial facilities, broken toys and organic sources as well (steps, water drops, wood, fire and gas).

The result is a simple yet powerful instrument including 2 Kontakt instruments and 400+ samples, that will provide a tensive, atmospheric rhythmical backbone to your cue. 

Mystery Box 3 contains an hidden 20% discount* on a list of selected titles (please read following sections)


Mystery Box 3 features two Kontakt instruments: Clock Loops and Clock Sequencer.

Mystery Box 3 Loops

-Clock Loops is a collection of 160 tempo synched loops and 30 cinematic one shots, created from several categories of sources (mechanics, machinery, metallic ticks, organic etc). Regardless of the master tempo in your DAW, the loops will always stay in sync. You can experiment by overlapping the several categories of loops to create interesting rhythmic combinations.

You have 4 loop layers (Mechanical, Metallic, Creepy and Organic), organised according to their time signature (16th, 8th, 4th and 2). Each selected layer contains 10 samples on the virtual keyboard.
The one-shots are divided in Booms, Dark Hits, Low Organic Hits, Electronic Kicks, Metallic Screams and Digital bleeps, each one featuring 5 samples on the virtual keyboard.

All the rhythmic loops featured in the instrument have an original tempo of 60 bpm and length of 1 bar, they are tempo synched with Time Machine in HQ mode in Kontakt. So, even at very high or low tempos, the sound quality is not compromised.

Mystery Box 3 Clocks Sequencer

– Clock Sequencer is a step sequencer where you can create mechanical rhythms with individual “ticks” sampled from different sources. Clock Sequencer consists in three sequencer lines running at once on the top of each other, that can be programmed independently. Each of them is composed of 4 rows (4 samples) and corresponds to a different category of sounds, Heavy, Mid and Light. It includes a total of 224 samples, ranging from big machinery, huge metallic impacts and smashes to ancient clocks and metallic machinery, tiny ticks from small gear, clocks, typewriters etc.

Mystery Box 3 is a collaboration with sound designer and composer Marco Miele, who recorded most of the sources used.
