Expressive Kontakt Instrument
Multisampled 32bit Instrument for Kontakt - authentically played with long loops, latched instruments and assorted hits. Singing Bowls are traditionally played by running a wooden beater around the rim of the bowls, similar to running your finger around the top of a wineglass.
These samples have been performed in this style. Notoriously hard to record, they produce a spiritual, resonant tone that is perfect for backgrounds, ambient/chill material and meditation.
With nearly 250MB of long, gently fluctuating 32bit loops and hits mapped across a full 88 note keyboard range, this instrument almost plays itself - check out the demo which was performed live in one take.
Using Kontakt's extensive range of editing parameters, power-users can attain a wide variety of different effects.
To ensure you hear all the lowest tones of the bowls please ensure you are monitoring through good-sized speakers :)
Building this instrument was truly a labour of love... (Compatible with Kontakt FULL version 2.2.3.003 and above..)
