Precisionsound Persian Daf MULTiFORMAT
Precisionsound Persian Daf MULTiFORMAT
The Daf (or Dap) is a large Persian frame drum used in popular and classical music. The frame is usually made of hardwood with many metal ringlets attached by hooks, and the membrane is usually goatskin. The Daf is used mostly in the Middle East and Central Asia, to accompany singing and performances on the tambur, violin, oud, saz, and kanun.

Dafs can be played to produce highly complex and intense rhythms, causing one to enter a trance and reach an ecstatic state. For this reason, they have always been connected with religion. In Iran, Sufis use Dafs during their spiritual chanting rituals.

Frame drums are most ancient type of musical instruments, with a simple structure yet a compelling sound. They have different sizes, and in traditional rituals the larger drums are played mainly by men, while the medium size drums are played mainly by women.

Our sampled Persian Daf was handmade in Iran by a master craftsman. It is quite large, with a diameter of fifty-five centimeters. Our Daf has seventy-two hooks, each of which is attached to a chain of four ringlets.
We recorded all the kinds of sounds you would expect from such a beautiful instrument: dums, teks, snaps, stopped hits, chains, rolls and scratches.

123 unique hits, rolls, scratches and shakes

Modwheel Angklung KONTAKT Modwheel Angklung KONTAKT
ANGKLUNG is the third release in the Creative Differences series, a percussion instrument library that focuses on quality, organic percussion sounds recorded and designed for the Kontakt user.

Following in the footsteps of HUMDRUM and THE BENDS and WORLDLY GOODS it features a collection of 24 tuned Bamboo Angklung.

The Angklung is a musical instrument from Indonesia now popular throughout South East Asia. Made of two to four bamboo tubes attached to a bamboo frame. The tubes are carved to have a resonant pitch when struck and are often tuned to octaves. The base of the frame is held in one hand, whilst the other hand strikes the instrument. This causes a repeating note to sound. 

ANGKLUNG Highlights:

23 Kontakt patches of single hits, rhythms, rattles and effects.

1570 samples recorded at 24-96 kHz with contact and stereo microphones.

We're not sure what the standard Angklung set is made up of but ours has the following...

18 Angklung that have 2 bamboo rattles that play an octave apart.

6 Angklung that have 3 rattles each that play a tonic, major 3rd and a fifth. The Major chord Angklung have been kept as separate patches

The single patches have 10 round robins of both up and down playing. The up stroke plays on key release and the volume of this stroke can be adjusted using the mod wheel.

Angklung -The Bamboozler also features a few patches that aren’t bamboo derived. You also get The Bambonezler a patch made up of bones, shells and seed pods.

The Bamstonezler a patch of slate stone hits that have been tuned and will play chromatically.

PureMagnetik MalletPak One MULTiFORMAT PureMagnetik MalletPak One MULTiFORMAT
MalletPak One is a collection of 13 multisampled marimba instruments. It was recorded in a reflective room with a pair of Shure KSM32s in an ORTF configuration to capture the wide stereo field of the instrument. Four different mallet types were used with multiple hits for round-robin triggering and several velocity layers each.

A violin bow recorded for each marimba bar creates an eerily textured patch with infinite sustain. A hybrid patch combining mallet strikes with the bowed texture allows you to mix between articulations. The Logic, Kontakt and Ableton versions include a massive program that includes all 4 mallet types for easy switching during a performance or recording. Additionally, there are several synthetic patches using the marimba as sound source to create unique new musical tones.

MalletPak was produced in collaboration with artist Richard Lainhart.
