Tonehammer Waterphone

Tonehammer has released Waterphone, a water phone sample library for Kontakt.

We decided to sample this instrument deeper and more creatively then ever before in the history of samples. The best current water phone libraries contains approx. 180-200 samples, which is less then 1/15 of the Tonehammer Waterphone, which contains a mighty 2.903 samples recorded with a variety of bows, a huge set of mallets, metal devices, hands and other contraptions. The library also contains a variety of more experimental patches, including boiled water at four different temperature levels, hydrophone recordings (underwater microphones in the waterphone), magnets on waterphone tines and filling waterphone with metal nails and other goodies.

Waterphone features

  • 57 instrument patches, 2.903 samples, 4.3 GB installed, 1.25 GB .rar download.
  • 22 Ambient Patches by Steven Tavaglione (Ambient music on Wall-E, American Beauty etc).
  • Recorded with custom Neumann in studio (excluding wild FX).
  • 44.1Khz/16Bit stereo .wav format, Kontakt 2 and .wav (note: Kontakt 3 requirement for bonus content).

Waterphone is available for the introductory price of $89 USD until 3 March, 2009 (regular price is $99 USD).
