Sonic Zest has announced the release of Glass Hand Drums, a new instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt.
Halfway between percussion and melodic instrument sits these glass hand drums. Sonically they are reminiscent of hand drums and halo drums.
To capture beauty and quirky nature of these instruments 5x round robins and 3 velocity layers were utilised. What you hear is the sound of the drums being patted, clapped and slapped to unearth their haunting tones. A sound design patch also comes with the instrument, which produces a pad-like sound that would probably work well in a horror movie.
Sonic Zest’s Glass Hand Drums sits perfectly in any mix. It’s great to any set-up and is ideal for playing lullabies and other lead melodies that you may be working on.
The library is available to purchase for the introductory price of $16 USD.
