Tonehammer Sleigh Bells

Tonehammer has released Sleigh Bells, another limited-time free sample pack as part of its Gnomehammer December Celebration.

Gnomehammer is proud to present: “Sleigh Bells” (aka Jingle Bells aka Santas Balls)

This library was created by recording a pair of hand-held sleighbells. We captured a small concert sleigh bell set, comprised of a wooden handle and 21 medium-sized brass bells. We also captured a smaller leather hand-grip style set, with 5 large steel bells attached to it. We captured brisk and gentle shakes, strikes and sustaining shake rolls at a wide variety of tempos, rhythms and intensity levels, all with release trigged samples. Both patches feature expression control on the modwheel: attack sharpening & muting for the single notes and subtle intensity swelling on the loops.
