6th November 2013
Sonokinetic has announced the release of Toll, a new instrument for Kontakt 4 and Kontakt 5.
Here's what they say: "Way back when, when Sonokinetic was in its infant stage, we recorded two carillons and turned them into a simple Kontakt instrument. Ever since, we have felt the urge to revisit that, and do it with the knowledge and experience we have gained over the past years. That time has come, and this time it is not just a carillon, but a large collection of different sized bells, from various periods and places of origin".
Each hit on these bells will spark a very unique and authentic sound that can only be generated by pure weight and age. Sonokinetic sampled historical valuable bronze cast bells as old as a 1000 years, proceeded through the ages of innovation in bell casting and tuning and ended in our time of hi-tech computer calibrated pitch accurate bells, and sampled all of those with great attention to detail, preserving their original tails of up to 30 seconds.
