INSTALLATION
1. NATIVE INSTRUMENTS KONTAKT
Copy the entire SC Concert Kazoos folder to anywhere you like on your
hard drive. Make sure you keep that folder structure as it is, so that the
Kontakt instruments can find their samples. (If you dont need the EXS24
instruments you can erase that folder but never erase the Samples
folder ).
This library requires the full version of Kontakt 5.1 or later.

It will not work

in the free Kontakt Player.

2. EXS24
Copy the entire SC Concert Kazoos folder to anywhere you like on your
hard drive. Then move the contents of the EXS folder to:
user/Library/Application Support/Logic/Sampler Instruments
Keep the rest of the data together so that you (and EXS24) can find it.
EXS24 will need the sample data in the Samples subfolder.

2. ABLETON LIVE 9
Click the Add Folder command in your sidebar, below PLACES, and
select the SC Concert Kazoos Live folder. This will add the library to your
sidebar, but it wont add the instrument to your category presets. Were still
waiting for a solution to this from Ableton.

INTRODUCTION

25 tuned plastic mouth-horns, or 'kazoos', made by Suzuki. What were they


used for? We don't know. There is very little information to be found online
about this curiosity.
Soniccouture user Josh Prager got in touch with us about them - he'd had
them for about ten years, and thought it might be a good idea if we record
them. So here they are.

LIBRARY SPECS
The instrument is sampled at 44.1kHz, 24 bit, in stereo. There are five round
robins of both the main sound, and five round robins of the key-o (release)
ringing of the 25 instruments. Each was sampled at two velocities.
The range of the instrument is from G2 to G4 originally, although the
samples are stretched beyond that in both directions.

INSTRUMENTS
THE KONTAKT INSTRUMENT
In the Kontakt instrument you can see the original key range on the Kontakt
keyboard below. This is just a guide, as the samples are stretched beyond
that. Remember also that by turning on the Info panel, you can get
information about any control while hovering over it.
