Lil' Boxes Part 05

Here's a couple of 'Buddha boxes', very low-fi playback boxes that contain various low bit-rate looped recordings of chants, mantras or music to aid meditation. How such crackly, hissy samples can aid any ones peaceful meditation is beyond us but they are an interesting starting point for some sound mangling. The packaging is really nice as well...

And rounding things of with some more shocking pink styling is this Korg Kaossilator. A really nifty little box of tricks, we really like the gate and arp options as well as the poke, stroke, tap and touch interface. For this set of samples we ran the Kaossilator through the Highly flammable filter to rough up the sound a bit.
