Fairly Confusing Waveforms has announced the release of Cracklebot, an automated drum machine for NI Kontakt, based on vinyl noise samples.

I sampled worn and dirty, empty grooves from my vinyl collection. Lead-ins, lead-outs, silent parts in between tracks, those have been chopped to 115 short slices or pops, crackles, scratches and noises. Cracklebot is sequencing them into tempo synchronized, noise grooves.

Video demo:

Cracklebot virtual machine can create new, random patterns on a single click. It requires full version of Native Instruments Kontakt 4.2 or newer.

Cracklebot is free to download and use in your music and it weighs 4MB. A manual is included with the compressed download file.
