Mallets&Sticks

 

Varying from 70 - 6 cm in diameter, this is a 4 octave spanning, truly gigantic tuned orchestral gong collection. Meticulously sampled in an anechoic room with up to 10 x roundrobin and 8 velocity layers in lots of different articulations. Mysterious & different, yet well tuned and chromatically playable!

Our vi has been discussed at length at VI-control, take a look at user reviews and more here.

We've captured these instruments in immense detail, in Audio Ease's real anechoic chamber, very close. This makes for a new experience, it sounds like you're in front of real instruments! 

 

Demo Music

 

- "This first volume of gongs is a marvel and NoiseGuild shows us how deep sampling can be exciting in generating unique and extremely musical instruments when practiced by sensitive and capable musicians. We will eagerly wait for the release of opus 2 and 3"  - Kr-Homestudio

The 3 interface pages: Main, Settings and Gong Machine

 

 

 

 

- Pattern / Patch browser as part of the instrument.

- Real anechoic recordings meaning that the gongs can be convincingly placed in various venues using your reverb of choice. No reverb on reverb sound.

Gong machine: The Gong Machine plays back organic sounding complex patterns using different articulations.

- Innovative performance features, the pedal clamps and unclamps the gongs in 'piano' mode using recorded multiple rr real samples of those. There are also Harpsichord like patches with a marked release sample

- Timbral Variance Round Robin parameter makes for a bigger timbral diversity when set higher, by repitching other gongs to the note played.

 

Background

 

Some 15 years ago i worked with a giant set of these gongs for the live music for a Dance performance. Bewitched by the exotic sound of these instruments, i did a sample session, but that didn't really work, i decided to wait for someone else's sampling effort.

I was quite surprised that to this day no one has, at least nothing deep sampled...

So now we have...

This is the first installment of the library, Mallets & Sticks. There are a second: Rubs and Bows, and a third: Percussives. All Together in the TRINITY bundle.

Apart from a 'normal' bell hit, we've also sampled offcenter and rim hits, clamped bell and rim hits and clamp- and release sounds. With Mallet beater and drumstick. These can be intuitively played from the keyboard with pedalled clamp control.
