LAYERCAKE is a powerful tool for creating interesting sound textures, comprised of a set of three samplers with four sounds in each, meticulously crafted to create audio spaces that move beyond the realm of mere pads, leads or basses. You get 16 presets that will get you started on a descent into madness…
Each sampler layer can be manipulated with up to thirteen controls. Add to these Kontakt’s five standard controls of volume, pan, tune, mute and solo and you have eighteen tweakable parameters per sampler. Adding up three by four samples in each LAYERCAKE you have 144 possible combinations of sounds as a starter palette for a musical experiment.
And then you start to add your own audio…
LAYERCAKE ships with a short manual so that even if you have little experience with Kontakt you can start creating your own dense soundscapes. Or even some killer bass if that’s more your style.
Why not take a look at the manual to see what you could do with it? No obligation.

16 Pads for Kontakt comes out of a previous Ableton Simpler set designed to produce “interesting ambience” (36 PADS). These cinematic atmospheres evolve as they play, taking the listener on an audio journey. Combined with Kontakt’s convolution reverb and 3-Way EQ these sounds are dense and sometimes spectacular.
It’s on Gumroad for $1 here.
Eight long, evolving atmospheres created by routing various Flintpope ambient samples through EVENTIDE BLACKHOLE. These were then racked up in Kontakt and treated to various combinations of modulators listed below.
LFO1 to Cutoff
LFO2 to Cutoff

A pack of ten passive/aggressive instruments created by playing a piano sample at C3 into Native Instruments MOLEKULAR and recording the results.
MOLEKULAR is a highly versatile modular effects rack that produces movement in the sound – very useful if you need long and evolving pads that can sometimes take you by surprise. Who wants a lush Juno pad all the time anyway? Everyone else but you!
MOLEKULAR is also good at creating harsh environments as well as beautiful chasms of gorgeousness. I have tried to reflect this in my choice of settings in the enclosed package. By the way, you almost never hear the original piano sample but it lends its own sonic richness to the end-result.
The Kontakt version has 10 modulators:
LFO1 to Cutoff
LFO2 to Cutoff

Do you need some layered sounds for texture in your track? Try this set of 9 multi instruments using different pairs of 18 individual Flintpope soundscapes.
Each instrument has 10 user-friendly dials to change parameters that radically affect each sound.
(Takes a breath)
Because you can layer any combination you like of these 18 sounds in MANIPULATOR there are 324 variations available before any further dial-twiddling needs to occur.
(Takes another breath)
Because you can also replace any sounds in MANIPULATOR with your own samples and apply 10 parameter changes to each you can possibly never run out of variations.
All enclosed samples are Flintpope originals, layered and morphed on Reaktor Polyplex by forgetting it is supposed to be a drum machine. They are all chosen for immense length and for having surprising evolving properties. All sounds are copyright-free so use them however you wish.
