Sonic Zest has announced African Tube Percussion, a virtual instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Soniz Zest African Tube Percussion

We recently stumbled across this instrument in a pop-up shop. The lady was selling Ghanaian imports, amongst which we found this set of African percussive tubes.

We recorded each tube being hit multiple times to give a 3x round robin. Minimal audio manipulation was required after the recording session to ensure that each note was perfectly tuned. The tones have been spread chromatically outside their normal range for playability. With a bit of sound design we created some additional patches, including a lovely sounding pad. African Tube Percussion Kontakt instrument is a great addition to any set-up.
