Soundiron has announced the release of Steel Tones, a deeply resonant and beautifully tonal tongue drum for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Soundiron Steel Tones

Built by Hapi Tones, the Hapi Drum is a large, hollow steel-chambered acoustic instrument in the family of steel tongue drums. And we’ve pushed it even farther with our detailed sampling methods, excellent sound-shaping tools, extended atmospheric content and powerful UI features. Let your creativity flow with Steel Tones!

The library comes fully equipped with flexible control features, dual-layer sound shaping, key switching and a robust Arpeggiator system that provides lots of dynamic arpeggiation modes and step sequencer pattern creation.
