Dark Arps releases free Hang Drum for Kontakt

Dark Arps Hang Drum

Dark Arps has released a free sampled Hang Drum instrument for Native Instruments Kontakt.

I decided I should sample the instrument, and brought a few mics, my laptop and interface round to my friend John’s house. I had John play each note around the drum at increasing velocities (quietest through moderate, to hardest), using the flat of his hand, his knuckle or a rubber mallet, so as to capture a variety of tonal characters.

I recorded each strike using an AKG C414B and Beyerdynamic M160, using the mid/side micing technique which produces a recording with a wide stereo image, but which also sums perfectly to mono. Once these differing velocities were captured, I processed the recordings (EQ, compression, noise gate), mixed them and bounced the entire recording to one stereo file, which I then sliced up manually and loaded into Kontakt, scaling the incoming velocities to trigger the recordings of the drum being hit at the respective velocities.

Importantly, I removed the velocity to volume modulation which is typically a default setting for most synths/samplers, as the recording of the lighter velocities are, naturally, lower in volume than the higher velocities.

The 147 MB download is available from Dark Arps at no cost.

Boscomac has announced Hanky Tank, a free tonal percussion instrument crafted from a propane tank.

Boscomac Hanky Tank
The Hanky Tank for Native Instruments Reaktor features a 4-octave pitch range.

Forget guitar on the beach, it’s overused, it’s good for the bigheads. This summer, to seduce girls and boys, opt for an original instrument, I propose HANKY TANK: This is a propane tank ingeniously sawed to get close to the Hang drum sounds.

Here you can choose the sound color, the intensity of harmonious harmonics, the detuned resonances, the decay of sound, mixing in reverb and even presicion beat on the tank.

Hanky Tank for Reaktor is a free download. Donations are appreciated.

8Dio releases The New Alien Drum

8Dio The New Alien Drum

8Dio Productions has launched The New Alien Drum, a percussion instrument for Native Instruments Kontakt.

The New Alien Drum (aka Hang Drum by Pan Art) is a unique tone based percussion instrument, which is almost impossible to come by, since there is only one maker in the world and less than 1000 drums in circulation. The instrument has a soft, sorrowful, melancholic tone to it and is a perfect companion for emotional or ambient type of scores.

The New Alien Drum also contains several morphed patches – where the Hang Drum was morphed with other acoustic instruments (ex. modified piano, modified tonal percussion, modified stringed instruments, synths etc) and 20 carefully crafted ethereal ambiences. This is the first virtual instrument designed to match the SETI program and we are proud to announce it has been approved by the IGMP (Intergalactic Music Program).

The New Alien Drum is available to purchase for the introductory price of $59 USD until July 1st, 2013 (regular $79 USD). This update is free for all existing Alien Drum owners.
