Native Instruments releases Balinese Gamelan: Discovery Series
Native Instruments has announced the release of Balinese Gamelan, a new Kontakt Player powered instrument in the Discovery Series.
The Discovery Series returns for another cultural exploration, this time heading to Indonesia to delve into the world of the BALINESE GAMELAN. This instrument contains 2 GB of pristine samples from several of the essential instruments that make up Gamelan. Powered by the free KONTAKT PLAYER (and also usable with KONTAKT), this instrument brings to life the rich and complex textures of Gamelan in its exquisitely-sampled classical form, yet also contains many features for tweaking and manipulating the sounds into new directions.
Created by the acclaimed sound-design house Soniccouture, the sound of the Balinese Gamelan can be heard across a wide range of genres and productions styles, from TV and film scores to electronic music compositions, and of course, classical Gamelan compositions.
Balinese Gamelan: Discovery Series is available for purchase from the NI Online Shop for $79 USD / €69 EUR.
