Fluffy Audio has released My Log Drum, a free primitive sounding percussion instrument for Native Instruments Kontakt.
The log drum, also called Slit Drum, is an idiophone usually carved in wood or constructed in a resonant wooden box. On the surface there are some woodden tongues that can be struct to play a simple melody.
Our instrument is a “vintage” version of the most common log drum in commerce. It was used for years before we could get our hands on it. Some toungues were not perfectly in tune, and there was a small crack on a tongue that made the instrument to “sizzle” on strong beats. But… we felt its sound lovely and authentic and we hope you will enjoy its sound too.
My Log Drum is a free download for Kontakt 4.2.4+ (full version required).
