Cinematique Instruments continues its Clearing Out 2012 promotion with The Bowl, a sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt.
The Bowl is a very ordinary bowl made of crystal glass which is commonly used for special occasions. Its diameter covers an amount of nearly 13 inches.
We hit the bowl with a couple of different kinds of mallets such as felt mallets, a plastic mallet, a leather mallet and a wool mallet. Finally we knocked on the bowl with our knuckles. All these variations are playable via key switches which will be displayed on the GUI to maintain the overview.
In order to provide a natural feeling we recorded 5 Round Robin variations each and added several options to shape the sound to your own requirements. We included distortion, EQs and a rotary simulation. Furthermore you can add a vibrato by moving the modulation wheel and we provide reverb and delay. You can easily adjust the length and the attack of The Bowl in order to achieve textures or pad sounds. Finally we included the default arpeggiator of Kontakt with some presets.
All in all we are coming up with a mallet instrument with a couple of various and unique sounds.
The Bowl is available to purchase for 16 EUR.
