Hidden Voices: Flexatone (96)

On the eternal search for new sounds, here is a hefty collection of creature voices created solely through the use of a metal flexatone.

This collection brings you 2,000 original sounds at 96kHz/24-bit stereo offering 4 distinct styles of vocalization prepared to breathe life into your creatures, whether they be alien or machine. Each style has over 450 variations covering over 15 different emotions such as “arguing”, “sad”, “scared”, “excited”, “laugh”, “question” and general “talking”. These 4 vocal styles are:

  1. “Voice A”: The untouched raw voice created by the flexatone, perfect for metallic creatures! (0:55-1:12 in the audio example)
  2. “Voice B”: A slightly deeper voice with additional upper harmonics for a sci-fi aesthetic, ideal for futuristic machines! (0:02-0:13 in the audio example)
  3. “Voice C”: A more mature voice with some throaty quivering, suitable for many alien creatures! (0:16-0:32 in the audio example)
  4. “Voice D”: A brighter, lively, child-like voice perfect for younger, smaller creatures! (0:35-0:52 in the audio example)

In addition to these 4 extensive voices, there are also over 150 traditional flexatone sounds such as the iconic comedic “boing” found in classic cartoons, as well as shakes, flicks, rises, falls and quivers!

Note: The sounds in the audio example have some panning added; the sounds in the library itself are entirely centred.

Hidden Voices is a sound library series dedicated to finding the voices that are hidden in the most obscure objects. Each library offers an extensive range of sounds created entirely from that object, ready to spice up your creature’s voices and add an original flavour to your sound palette.
