Soniccouture releases Hang Drum (Kontakt)
From the product page:
Soniccouture’s quest for the exotic, the unique, the esoteric, and the downright weird and quirky, brings us to our latest obsession, the Hang Drum.
- 2.4 GB Library
- Includes both Mk.1 + Mk. 2 Hang Drum Models
- Over 1000 24 bit Stereo 44.1 Samples per Drum
- Hang Jammer – KSP Random Pattern Generator
- Multiple Articulations
- Up to 21 Velocity Layers
This seems to be quite an unique instrument, developed by the instrument builders of PANArt, Felix Rohner and Sabina Schärer. You will not be able to buy one from just any store. According to Soniccouture you would have to have to wait up to 2 years before you can get one from the PANArt, that is if they’d agree to build you one…
Hang Drum is available for download (49 GBP) and on disc (52 GBP) for Kontakt 2.
