Soniccouture releases Concert Pitch Update for Balinese Gamelan

Soniccouture Balinese Gamelan

Soniccouture has released a Concert Pitch Update for Balinese Gamelan, the 24GB sample library for Kontakt.

From the website:

Depending on your point of view, this update is either a saving grace or complete sacrilege. Some of you will appreciate the chance to play the gamelan instruments in western tuning, and some of you will just ignore this version and tell us we’ve sold out. Nonetheless, in fairness to all the different types of musicians out there, here is a Gamelan Set tuned to western equal temperament.

Visit the Balinese Gamelan website for more information and a link to download the update.

    And now, the ultimate sample in sampling history, the Gamelan. One single huge 24gb sample of one single gong hit. But it was a really big gong, so it deserved a really big sample rate: for the 1st time ever going into the Megahertz range, 768Mhz, and a bit depth to match, not 16, not 24, not 32, not even 64bits, but an astounding 65536 bits!!!

    Disclaimer: can not be streamed from disc, must be loaded into RAM. Minimum OS RAM requirement: 28gb.
