ToneHammer WaterPhone Kontakt (1 dvd)
Welcome to the Tonehammer Waterphone.
We decided to sample this instrument deeper and more creatively then ever done
before in the history of sampling. The biggest current Waterphone libraries
contains approximately 180-200 samples, which is less then 1/15 of the new
Tonehammer library, Ours contains 2,903 samples and 59 different articulations,
divided into two main categories: Bowed & Mallets.
The articulations include a variety of bows, a huge set of different 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 screws and other goodies.
This sample library pretty much covers just about every thinkable and unthinkable
way you.d want to use/abuse a waterphone. We can proudly state we sampled the
living soul out of the waterphone. All playable mallet programs contain between
5-10 velocity layers . and 6-10 round robin variations for maximum playability.
In addition Waterphone contains a bonus set of waterphone ambiences, including a
large collection of unique patches (Kontakt 3 only) made by Steven Tavaglione
(Instrumentalist and Sound Designer; Wall-E, American Beauty, CSI, Supernatural
and 100s other movies/shows/games).
