Tonehammer Propanium

Tonehammer releases Propanium (aka MILLTONE), a highly emotive, metal based, tongue drum.

The drum has certain similarities to the Hang Drum, but is more clean, less “steel-drummy”, has more harmonics and overtones. We recorded Propanium in a variety of ways including finger, brushes, mallet articulations and tons of effects. The drum follows our “deep-sampling” methodology and the larger patches generally have approx. 10 velocity layers and 6-8 round robin (repetition) pr. layer, however certain patches (ex. overtone patches) have over 35 velocity layers for maximum playability.

Propanium features

  • Brush (Nylon) on all 8 notes: 10 velocity layers, 6x round-robin.
  • Brush FX: Variation of short and longer brush swells.
  • Finger on all 8 notes: 10 velocity layers, 8x round-robin.
  • Finger percussion: 18 velocity layers, 4x round-robin.
  • Mallet: 9 velocity layers, 8x round-robin.
  • Ambiences MW: 6×6 velocity layers.
  • Overtones: 8×35 velocity layers.
  • Overtone flowers: 4×40 velocity layers.
  • Finger arpeggiator: A variety of dual-tongues arpeggiated.
  • Random Arp: A variety of dual-tongues arpeggiated & randomized.
  • Random MW Tuning: A variety of dual-tongues tuned on MW.
  • Extensive read me install, patch and hint documentation (.pdf).
  • 11 instrument patches, 2224 samples, 1.67 GB installed, 368 MB .rar download.
  • Sample resolution: 44.1Khz/16Bit stereo .wav format.
  • Format(s): Kontakt 2 and .wav.

Propanium is available as a Kontakt instrument for $49 USD.
