Embertone has announced its Soprano Jug Drum, a free sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt.
What happens when you lock two sound designers in a space with 5 water jugs, 5 microphones, a laptop and an audio interface? Pure #$!@ing magic, that’s what! With oodles of round robins, 4 different playing styles, and a dynamic range equipped to shake things up, you’re going to love this instrument… It’s a new angle on the concept of “epic drumming”
The 4 playing styles are mapped out equally over 4 octaves. From highest to lowest they are: 1) Hand (muted) 2) Hand (ring out) 3) Timpani Mallet 4) Stick. This instrument is sooo much fun, we suggest trying it out with an arpeggiator!
Soprano Jug Drum features
- 1 drum – just the soprano.
- 4 playing styles.
- 1 pre-mixed mic position.
- 10 vel layers/10x RR.
- Full Kontakt 4.2.4+ required.
The sample library is a free download at Embertone.
