Hopkin Instrumentarium: Rattletines, unique hand-crafted tuned percussion instruments

0

Soundiron has announced the release of Rattletines, a new Hopkin Instrumentarium series sound library featuring inspiring and distinctive bespoke, hand-made instruments for Native Instruments Kontakt 6 Player.

Soundiron Rattletines

Following up on Tines & Echoes, this new sample library is a set of unique hand-crafted tuned percussion instruments created by instrument designer and sound sculptor Bart Hopkin.

These one-of-a-kind kalimba-like instruments each produce their own special flavor of rattle or buzz with every note having its own warmly resonant flavor. Rattletine includes two rows of tines, with the upper tines hammering against “anvils” as they vibrate. The lower row is clean, for a clearer tone quality. Mahogany and Hacksaw Blades both feature tongues with holes punched in them and small pieces of metal wrapped through.

When plucked, the metal wrappings rattle as the tongue vibrates, producing a unique buzzing sound. Aptly named, Hacksaw Blades uses actual hacksaw blades for the tongues. We’ve faithfully sampled tine plucks and percussive hand slaps on the instrument bodies, with two stereo mic positions. While this library works perfect for children’s music, it can also unleash brooding and sinister cascades great for scoring horror soundtracks. We also include a wide selection custom FX presets and lots of our signature sound designed ambient and cinematic content.
