victorianFrozenPlain has released Victorian Music Box, a free library for Kontakt by Native Instruments featuring antique music box sounds.

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.
