Soniccouture tells us that every aspect of Box Of Tricks, their new  Kontakt Player 5.5 Compatible, 30GB sample library, has been shaped by Imogen Heap. They describe it as an exclusive selection of her instruments, sampled in detail and with custom scripts, effects, and tools; all designed the way she wanted to use them.

A spokesperson told us, "Box Of Tricks has already been beta-tested in Imogens live performances and studio projects: a process that helped generate ideas and refine the instruments. From an initial idea about a free Heap instrument, to the final result, 3 years later; Box Of Tricks is a truly extraordinary collaboration."
