Precisionsound has released Steel Tongue Drum for Kontakt and EXS24.
The Steel Tongue Drum is made from an empty propane tank. It has a resonant and mysterious voice, suitable for cinematic and ambient music.
Precisionsound recorded finger and mallet performances on the drum face, as well as multiple percussive hits on its back and sides and tonal hits using both fingers and mallets, as well as non-tonal hits from the rear and side of the instrument. Each note has four velocity layers and four round robins.
