AudioThing releases "Environments - Temple of Mercury" for Kontakt
15th November 2012

AudioThing has released Environments - Temple of Mercury for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Environments - Temple of Mercury features sound gestures from a corrugated plastic pipe and the impulse response of the Temple of Mercury, a wide caldera situated in the west of Naples (Italy). The Temple is also known as "The Echo Temple" for its several acoustic reflections caused by a dome vault and water on the floor. The temple is entirely made of tophus, and it has a diameter of 21.5 meters (71ft) and a circular opening in the vault reminiscent of the one in the Pantheon in Rome. The sampled instrument produces flute, horn, efxs, impulsive sounds, and, with a little electroacoustic modification, feedback sounds; all sounds are playable with or without the convolution of the Temple.

Details:

Price: $15. Temple of Mercury is available for the introductory price of $12 until November 24th, 2012.

Native Instruments Kontakt 4.2.4+ full version is required.

This library was inspired by a video by Salvatore Carannante, a musician who plays common or recycled everyday objects as a way of interacting with the acoustic space: www.youtube.com/watch?v=tXLk7tLyBbQ
