News Soniccouture Bowed Gamelan

Soniccouture has announced its third "Exclusive Content" release, Bowed Gamelan, which is available to Soniccouture customers only.

It is a free download for any customer who has purchased three or more SC products from the new Soniccouture.com website (valid on purchases made since 24/8/09). Other Exclusive Content products include Devilfish 303 and TubeDrum.

Bowed Gamelan is described as “a unique sampled instrument, made by contact-miking a Ugal – one of the principal metallaphones in the gamelan ensemble.”

The metal Ugal keys were bowed using a standard cello bow, vertically across the thin edge of the metal. Instead of a conventional microphone, a Trance Audio Trance Inducer contact mic was used. This gives the sound a detailed, surgical scraping quality, the company says. The result is a playable, musical metallic pad – an acoustic synthesizer patch.

Specifications:
  • Kontakt | EXS | Ableton Live.
  • 24 bit 44.1khz Sampling.
  • 5 Alternate round robin samples per note.
  • Key-off samples.
  • Free with 3rd product purchased.
