And another video!
This is the second release in their Creative Differences series, a percussion instrument library that focuses on quality, organic percussion sounds designed for the Kontakt user. Following in the footsteps of HUMDRUM it features a collection of all things metal '" gongs, cymbals, gamelan, triangles, and miscellaneous household items, struck, scraped and bowed while being immersed in water.
'Some years ago we recorded some gongs using this technique for a job we were doing and in the following years found ourselves returning to these recordings again and again in completely different contexts, so it seemed like a good idea to create an Instrument along these lines' said Steve Roche of MODWHEEL. 'The original recordings, used raw, were mainly used for their unique tonal qualities but now, having made the instrument, it opens up all sorts of interesting possibilities with the use of the arpeggiator and detuning etc.'
The sample library is available for the introductory price of $25 USD (regular $35 USD). Requires full version of Kontakt 5.3 or higher.
