"It’s natural for us musicians to turn everyday
objects (or snacks) into musical instruments, it’s
in our blood. But even non-musicians can easily
discover the musical potential of a half-empty can
of Pringles. Listen to this delicious demo.
This famous canister starts crackling as soon as it
leaves the table and doesn’t stop until you put it
back down. With a little effort and the right
technique, we’ve turned this potato crisp popper
into a complete drum machine.
We didn’t do a lot of processing to the samples to
preserve the raw crumby sound, except for a few
slaps and taps that had to be layered to get the
‘kick’ and ‘snare’ to sound big enough. A little
bluemix here and there, some compression, that’s it.
We selected a few samples from about a hundred to be
a part of this kit, so you can expect another
crackly kit soon. It gave us a lot of fun, and now
it’s your turn to make some crunchy beats!"
