Soundscapes, Loops & Sound Effects for Soundtrack & Electronica

Steamworx is a cinematic netherworld featuring keyboard instruments made from clocks, drum kits built with steam-powered machines, fog-shrouded soundscapes and gothic choirs. With intricate contraptions, grunge-laden grooves, multi-layered arpeggios and hand-crafted percussion that ooze character and round-robin realism, you will find moods suited to epic soundtrack, delicate ambient, sci-fi, industrial and the supernatural.

This library incorporates over 240MB of new sample content, with specially created instruments, extensive field recordings that add a rich patina of detail, 8-bit SID Chip exotica, plus samplings from an extensive collection of bells, chimes, and gongs. Martin Walker is well known for his music and sound effects design on over a hundred game soundtracks, and for his columns and features on sound design in magazines such as Sound On Sound and Audio Technology.

"The quality is luxurious, and the set features dark drums, atmospheric soundscapes, spooky pads and haunting choirs, with plenty of atonal curiosities along the way. Dark and sombre in tone, there are natural and mechanical sounds in equal abundance."
Computer Music Magazine
 "Camel Audio and Martin Walker have created an incredibly beautiful, incredibly useable library that is a go-to source for inspiration ... I can’t find a single fault in this library. This is a first."
