The music box is from the 19th century, but still
works surprisingly well. It is actually in the back
of a book; when the book opens, the music should
begin playing. In this case, God Save the Queen.
Victorian Music Box has a great sound, somewhat
dark, yet beautiful. It’s perfect for creating
atmosphere and for background melodies.
The first page includes a random knob; this delays
the start time of the notes. This is perfect for
adding realism to the instrument. As you can
imagine, an actual music box will not hit multiple
notes at the extact same millisecond.
There is also a simple EQ, If you find it a little
too bright and plucky, bringing the highs down a bit
is perfect for this.
The library is a free download. Requires full
version of Kontakt.
