Modwheel has announced the release of Angklung, a tuned bamboo percussion library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

ANGKLUNG is the third release in the Creative Differences series, a percussion instrument library that focuses on quality, organic percussion sounds recorded and designed for the Kontakt user.

Following in the footsteps of HUMDRUM and THE BENDS and WORLDLY GOODS it features a collection of 24 tuned Bamboo Angklung.

The Angklung is a musical instrument from Indonesia now popular throughout South East Asia. Made of two to four bamboo tubes attached to a bamboo frame. The tubes are carved to have a resonant pitch when struck and are often tuned to octaves. The base of the frame is held in one hand, whilst the other hand strikes the instrument. This causes a repeating note to sound.

Angklung features

  • 23 Patches of Tuned Bamboo Angklung.
  • 24bit 96kHz Multisamples (1570 samples).
  • 2.58GB Core Library (1.4GB via lossless compression).
  • Note: Requires Kontakt 5.3.0 or higher, full version.

The library is available for the introductory price of $15 USD.
