    Hi there guys, i need some help. one of the songs i will be tracking shortly has a cool intro and i have an idea to make it even better and more eerie sounding. i would like to take the melody of the intro and make it sound like the eerie sound a baby mobile has when it plays back (its the object that normally hangs above a childs cradle playing tunes as it spins around......

    Does anyone know of an instrument plug in ect that emulates this sort of sound ect?

    or how can i go about getting this vibe.

    I don't know of an effect but if you use a kalimba which can be set in any tuning including blues it should give that type of sound. The one I associate with it anyway.

    maybe mess around with a tremelo plug or a chorus to give it that uneven tape player feel....always creepy...i think

    GRM Tools Reson Plug-In is capable of making some twisted metallic tones.
    Waves Enigma and MondoMod can handle the warbling weirdness part.


    Enter "Child's Music Box" in the Quick Search at this site and listen to their lo-fi previews. I know you want to use your own melody, but it might spark some creative ideas.

    Buying one of their hi-fi royalty-free soundclips might also save you buying a Plug-In bundle or a half day's work trying to create something from scratch.
