In Session Audio Fluid Strike Tuned Percussion KONTAKT
Fluid Strike is an instrument designed to create richly layered melodic percussive patterns with ease.

Why tuned percussion? Because the instruments are timeless.

Wood, steel, stone, bamboo, glass and gourds combine to make a sound that is elemental. A sound that can harken to both the past and the future.

With a slew of effects, sound shaping tools and autoplay rhythmic and melodic features at your fingertips, Fluid Strike allows tuned percussion to sound completely unique.

The Instruments

WE’VE GONE THE EXTRA MILE
•We didn’t stop at sampling each instrument just once.
•Where possible, each instrument has been recorded using a variety of sticks, mallets, fingers, brushes and bows.
•For example, the vibraphone is offered played with soft mallets open and muted, rubber mallets open and muted and bowed! Choose what you need.
•Between the 30 instruments recorded for Fluid Strike, there are 63 different sample sets!
•You can find a complete list below the instrument images.


Disclosure: The mbiras, tingkliks and the Brazilian tongue drum were previously featured in products by Nine Volt Audio. However, they have been re-mastered and re-mapped for Fluid Strike.

TRIPLE PLAY ENGINE

The idea had been rattling in our heads for a while. Years actually.
What if we could create an instrument that allowed the user to:

•Select three sound sources to layer together
•Arpeggiate the three sound sources with independent patterns, rates and playback modes
•Shape and effect the three sound sources independent of one another
•Select any effect directly from the interface (and swap their positions on the fly)
•Humanize the three sound sources independent of one another

With nearly six months of development, we did it!
We look forward to putting it in your hands.

FEATURES:

•30 tuned percussive instruments
•120 custom made synth sets
•Where possible, each instrument has been recorded using a variety of sticks, mallets, fingers, brushes and bows, bringing the tuned percussion sample set count to 63.

•Most instruments feature many velocity layers and triple round robin cycling for natural variation.

•To improve playability all instruments have been stretched across the entire keyboard range.

•200 patches split into seven categories:

– Triple Play Arps – Natural (36)
– Triple Play Arps – Hybrid (36)

– Rhythmic Pulses w Mod Wheel (24)
– Solo (24)
– Pads (24)
– Ambient (32)
– Sequences (24)

•71 custom reverb impulse responses
•12 custom amp cabinet impulse responses
•64 custom fx unit presets

Triple Play rhythm grids can modify up to 15 parameters simultaneously (arp, pitch, filter cutoff, volume and pan x 3)

The Triple Play engine supports up to 22 user-selected Kontakt effects at once, plus an additional three filters, three send delays and three send reverbs, for a total of 31 (!) simultaneous effects.

Fluid Strike runs in Kontakt or the free Kontakt Player 5.6.8 or higher (requires a minimum of Windows 7 or Mac OS 10.10).

The library consists of sets of Jal Tarang, Tabla Tarang, Spoon Tarang and derived sound designed instruments. Jal Tarang (means waves in water) is an Indian melodic percussion instrument, it consists of sets of ceramic bowls tuned with the aid of water, and the bowls are played by striking the edge with wooden sticks, one in each hand.

TablaTarang is a rarely heard instrument these days. It consists of a number of right hand drums of Tabla tuned to different scales placed in semi-circular arrangement, melodies are played by striking the drums.
AudioThing Pipes KONTAKT AudioThing Pipes KONTAKT
Pipes is a collection of instruments derived from a variety of cardboard tubes, aluminum spray cans, dreamcatchers, and PVC pipes. Even if the pitch of most of the sources is not stable, all instruments were manually tuned. Each instrument features from 3 to 6 Round Robin samples and up to 3 velocity layers. One of the main instruments is a sampled Wah Wah Tube (aka Vibratone): bell-like sound with a very long release and a dedicated control for overtones. There are a couple of sound designed patches derived from the original instruments along with Kontakt Multis ready to play.
Audio Thing Tank Drum KONTAKT Audio Thing Tank Drum KONTAKT
Tank Drum features samples from a famous steel tongue drum. Also called hank drums, these instruments are usually made out of propane tanks with tongues of different sizes and tuned in different scales. The instrument we have sampled features 8 tongues and it’s tuned in E minor pentatonic. It was played both with hands and rubber mallets along with some sound effects with hands and brushes. The sound has a long release and is rich in harmonics.

Soundiron Solo Dhol Drum KONTAKT Soundiron Solo Dhol Drum KONTAKT
Welcome to our Solo Dhol drum library. The Solo Dhol contains over 5.100 samples and +100 different articulations, including sticks, mallets, brushes, hands/fingers, bass bends and more, all recorded in extraordinary detail in a close, dry studio setting. We deep sampled two professional Dhol Drums for this library, each with distinct characteristics and tones. These drums have animal hide bass heads (called "dagga”) and maylar treble heads (called "thili”). They dagga sides are tuned with a single heavy nylon rope, wound around the drum through steel rings. The thili heads are tuned with a series of steel lugs and rods, typical of most modern percussion.

We like to refer to the thili as "snare” and dagga as "bass”, since they sound and function in much the same way snare and bass drums are used in western music. Also, we don’t like to do anything in the usual way, because we’re a pack of weirdos. The thili sound ranges from that of roto-toms or smaller timables to nasty, abrasive, grainy and thrashing snare-like sounds, depending on the drum size, turning, mallet type, strike position and playing style. The dagga heads range from a bayan-like water drip to a taiko-like boom-crack. We beat the hell out of our Dhol, to push the sound as far as we could take it. For this deeper dry- and close-mic recorded collection, we used a wide variety of sticks, mallets, brushes and hand articulations, as well as unique tunings, to explore the widest possible range of sounds that these instrument were capable of. We recorded every single note with a full 10 round-robin variations and up to 14 velocity layers. The end-result is the deepest sampled Dhol in the history of sampling allowing you to make completely audio-realistic dhol grooves.
Soundiron Angklung KONTAKT Soundiron Angklung KONTAKT
We welcome you to the Soundiron Angklung. This library is a full-ranged traditional tuned percussion instrument originating from Indonesia, dating back to roughly the 7th Century AD. Over the past thousand years, it has spread widely throughout Southeast Asia and Polynesia and can be heard in a variety of traditional and modern music, from gamelan orchestras to pop bands and jazz ensembles.

The Angklung is actually best thought of as a set of several individual single-note instruments, each one comprised of a pair of bamboo tubes in a higher/lower octave pair sounded by a loose rattle. The result is a uniquely full, clear but short-sustaining, dry note. For this massive dedicated Angklung multi-sample library, we’ve recorded a set of 18 Angklung notes, tuned over a major scale spanning nearly 3 full octaves. We captured them up close in a dry studio and out in a large open hall with 3 mic positions (close, mid, far). We recorded each up and down stroke separately, with 48 round-robin variations per-velocity/per-note for the dry (24 up/24 down) and 16 round-robin variations per-velocity/per-note for the hall samples (8 up/8 down). We also recorded natural hand-played sustaining loops at different speeds and intensities, with smooth dynamic cross-fading between layers and adjustable release samples. And finally, we created a set of ambient soundscapes crafted from the raw source recordings that complement the sound of the instrument.

We’ve integrated this library with a newly upgraded version of our celebrated Uberpeggiator meta-arpeggiation system. It allows you to create realistic sustaining angklung rolls with the multi-sample presets that have completely fluid attack, sustain and release behavior, with precise real-time speed/tempo and intensity controls, with optional host tempo-syncing and velocity graphing. This gives you total control and the ability to weave the instrument into just about any type of music, while preserving a completely life-like simulation of the instrument’s real-world sound and feel. We’ve designed the instrument primarily to use our Uberpeggiator’s EZ-Roll mode, but it sounds just as good in the other Uber modes as well. Of course, with the Uberpeggiator turned off, it also works as a single-strike wooden mallet tuned bamboo percussion instrument.

Fluid Harmonics is an instrument designed to create richly layered melodic patterns with ease.

Why guitar harmonics?

They have a familiar yet mystical sound to them. A purity and clarity. You can tell it’s guitar – but there’s something a bit different – something special. More sparkle. More chime.
