While an increasing number of people across the world are spending more time at home, Klevgränd has announced the release of a percussion instrument with sounds originating from things laying around at home.

Ting features 12 different percussive sounds originating from everyday objects such as silverware, a sofa, toy drum or a pair of car keys. It is intended to be a creative tool and a substitute for ordinary drum and percussion instruments.

Altogether ~500 individual samples are used to make this instrument. Each sound is carefully multi-sampled and processed with the common goal to be musically playable. In addition to the sounds, there is an EQ, a room simulator, a reverb and a compressor.

“Since we’re all stuck in our homes, we decided to make use of what’s there.” – Johan Sundhage , Lead Developer, Klevgrand.

Ting is on sale for the intro price of $14.99 USD until April 30th, 2020 in AU/VST/AAX plugin formats for Windows and macOS (regular $19.99 USD). The iOS version (iPad/AUv3 only) is $4.99 USD during the sale (40% off regular).
