Extinct Art of India – Tabla Tarang

Please Note : Tabla Tarang Library/Instruments works with Native Instruments Kontakt 5.4.2 or Higher (Full Version).Free Players works for 30 minutes.

Introduction

You already heard the "Magical Sound of Tabla” in our previous release which was performed by master tabla artist ” Jagannath Singh”. we have already discussed the effect of black ink spot on tabla which makes this instrument capable of producing one note higher than the main pitched note (Psyco-acoustic issue).

Magical Sound Of 13 unique hand made "Tablas”


There are many Tuned Percussion Instruments available in the market.We can say market is quite saturated but here is the extinct art of India "Tabla Tarang”. Most of the people in India have heard about this instrument but have not seen any performance happening live. Sadly , Authentic playing is no more seen.

Solo Tabla Tarang

"Tarang” means waves. Many hand made tabla drums are tuned separately by hitting hammer on the rim of tabla according to "Raga” and all tabla drums are placed in semicircular positions covering lower bass tabla from left to higher pitched tabla towards right. Each tabla has its own character and the melodies are produced by hitting hands on the centre of tabla. Black Ink spot produce a unique sound and when artist perform any emotional raga using these different-different tabla it sounds exotic.
Its bit sad to say that this art is almost not seen in India nowadays.Pandit Kamalesh Maitra has some of his performances on youtube which can be searched by his name.

Crypto Cipher Solo Tabla Tarang

Recreating this art was adventurous and fun. We teamed up with tabla artist and tabla makers and discussed the plan and finally we have sampled 13 tabla drums not with just the magical black ink spot sound but also the two other tuned sounds "Ta” and "Tin” ,which are produced by hitting at the rim/chanti and middle portion/maidan of tabla drum.
So we have three main tuned sounds "Ta” "Tin” and "Tun” mapped across the keyboard.
Mixing all three sound make the instrument so special as never heard before.
We recreated this instrument for Modern music composers and recorded almost 15,000 samples with three mic types (Ribbon , Dynamic , Condensor). Also with the powerful scripted technology we pushed the capability of the instrument to next level. We have legato and drum articulation section which will help composers to play the instrument in more advance ways.

Tabla Tarang Authentic Playing Technique

We recommend you to see artwork made by Kirti Taneja for "Tabla Tarang” to understand the instrument( Artist sits in the middle and place tabla in semicircular position creating a keyboard layout). All tabla are tuned manually by hitting hammer on tabla according to Raga which artist is going to perform.
Artist can hit maximum two drums at a time producing one stroke from each hand at once (Human capability).Example : Artist cannot play "Ta and Tin” "Tin or Tun” at the same time on same drum but can hit Ta on one drum and Tin on other drum at same time. Same concept for other strokes.

In other words 
Tabla Tarang artist can produce only two notes harmony at max as again he has two hands and one hand produce one stroke at a time.
Its not like piano . (In piano you can hit 5 notes at a time with one hand and 5 other from other hand maximum).
So, most of the time the arrangement of these tablas are used as solo melodic tuned instrument.
Its not necessary to play Tabla Tarang in authentic way , you can play the instrument in other ways you want .

Applications – Ideas

You can do sound design stuff with these variety of samples and create texture you never created before . This instrument can be layered with other sounds. It can be a part of your main background theme of movie as its character is so unique.
You can try soft samples of tun articulation to create very emotional and heart touching melodies and on the other side you can have aggressive punchiness of "Ta” and "Tin” Sounds.
You can use this instrument into your drum track to create fillers etc. There are many applications just play the instrument and see what inspires you.

Soundiron Little Wooden Flutes (KONTAKT) Soundiron Little Wooden Flutes (KONTAKT)

Welcome to Soundiron's Little Wooden Flutes! This soulful collection features an Indian Venu flute recorded in a dry studio environment as well as several Native American Plains flutes recorded in a large open sanctuary hall to provide a rich, natural reverb. We’ve also included a broad collection of outstanding atmospheric, synth and pad instruments hand-crafted from the raw flute recordings to provide even more creative possibilities. Carrying the spirit and soul of the flutes, these sounds offer excellent accompaniment and texture that can be used both with the flutes and in any number of other ways, in any style of music or sound design.

For the Indian Venu flute, we captured three styles of multi-sampled sustain and staccato notes: normal, trilled and overtone bursts, all with multiple round robin. The Venu was recorded in a dry studio with both a large diaphragm condenser microphone as well as a more modern transformerless cardioid microphone. In addition, there are sets of live performance phrases in a variety of keys, styles and tempos. The Native American Plains flutes feature a broad range of live performance phrases and short special flute effects all captured in a large sanctuary with multiple mic positions.

As usual, we have included an enormous amount of flexibility and control packed into every preset. The program interface allows key transposition, tempo adjustment and a whole host of customization features to allow the content to be used in any number of ways. We’ve also included our comprehensive FX Rack panel, with multi-effects, compression, EQ, amp/speaker simulation and convolution reverb, featuring dozens of our most popular custom recorded rooms, halls, cathedrals and otherworldly fx impulses easily available right through the interface.

The Indian Venu flute is an ancient end-blown keyless transverse flute used widely in both modern and traditional Indian folk music. Primarily found in southern India, it is often depicted being played by the Hindu god Krishna. The Venu we recorded for this library is peculiar in that it is a 7 holed flute carved from rosewood, rather than the typical 8 hole bamboo material you’ll find in most venu flutes. This difference gives it a warmer, fuller sound. It is tuned in the key of C minor.
The Native American plains flutes we recorded were carved from walnut and cedar, in the keys of D and G minor. They are traditional end-blown 8-hole flutes, with two air chambers joined by a channel covered by an ornate block often called a "bird” or "fetish”. These flutes have a mellower, darker and generally softer sound, yet have the ability to produce powerful trills, overtones and chirps. Finally, we took the source material and contorted it into a broad selection of ambiences, drones, atmospheres, pads, leads and special FX instruments.

reFUSE Software Lowender 1.4 VST reFUSE Software Lowender 1.4 VST
Soft / VST Instruments 19-09-2015
From post-production houses to disco floors, from high-powered live sound to rock, dub, and metal studio productions, the characteristic rumble of the subharmonic synthesizer has been an engineer’s best-kept secret for years. Now, finally, you can get those low lows from within your favorite DAW application!

While taking the classic "Boom Box” sound as its core, the Lowender expands on the concept in several ways. First, it offers switchable frequency ranges, so that the low end frequencies generated can be selected to fit the program material.

Second, the generated subharmonics pass through a gate tailored for low frequencies, which is useful for cleaning up unwanted bass rumble (e.g. from between kick drum hits in a drum loop).

Third, the Lowender passes the bass material through an output section comprised of an overdrive circuit and a lowpass filter. Driving or compressing the newly generated low frequencies is essential for evening out their dynamics, and will allow them to sit well in a mix. The variable lowpass filter is provided to shave off the higher harmonics of the overdrive and create a smooth low end - or you can leave some of them in, for raspier bass sounds.
Forgotten Keys FK9 Hammond Auto-Vari 28 V.4.2 KONTAKT Forgotten Keys FK9 Hammond Auto-Vari 28 V.4.2 KONTAKT
Soft / VST Instruments 30-08-2015
This Hammond AutoVari rhythm unit was originally built into an old old Hammond Dolphin organ from the 1970s. Although it only had 7 rhythm buttons, each one had 4 variations so there were 28 rhythms in all. The unit itself included circuitry and controls for the organs auto-accompaniment section but no circuit diagrams or schematics were available to see how to access it.

Sounds
The FK9 includes isolated samples of the 7 analogue sounds of the AutoVari. Each sound has been sampled 8 times and is chosen randomly within Kontakt. They are, or course, accessible via a keyboard or DAW sequencer also. The sounds are in 24-bit 44.1KHz wav format.

Rhythms
Each of the 28 rhythm patterns have been re-created for Kontakt. They are not sampled loops, rather they are sequences that trigger the individual sound samples when needed. This is how a real drum machine works, only here we use samples instead of a sound generator circuit.

Setup
The Setup tab offers greater control over how the FK9 sounds and operates. There are volume, pan and tune controls for each sound. Incoming MIDI notes can be mapped to any rhythm. Random tune and volume controls add a little human element to the sounds.

Inside
Here’s what the AutoVari looked like inside. There was no case of course as it was enclosed by the organ cabinet. Some of the controls you see here were for the organs auto-accompaniment section.
