Bamblong

The Bamblong is a small idiophone similar to a marimba, hand-crafted from sections of carved bamboo and originating from Southest Asia. It is comprised of a row of tuned bamboo logs that serve as resonance chambers, each ranging between 1.5 – 2.5 inches in diameter and 8 – 14 inches in length, with sound holes cut into the top of each one. The actual playing surface for each log is a thin bamboo plank suspended on pegs over each bamboo log. When played with recycled rubber bicycle tire mallets, the instrument has a smooth and mellow, yet crisp and clear musical note, with a quick decay.

First, it was captured in a very close, dry setting with a wide pair of large diaphragm mics to capture the full warmth and tonality of each note. This was done to give it a rich, strong presence and allow the Bamblong to work well with reverb or spatializing effect. It was deep-sampled exhaustively, with an average of 20 dynamic velocity layers per note and 10 round-robin variations per dynamic layer. There are also strike and roll articulations using nylon jazz brushes for a raspy effect.

Next, the Bamblong was also recorded in a large glass and stone recording hall for a bright, organic live sound. This "wet" version of the Bamblong is designed for use in symphonic arrangements and blending with other concert percussion. Lastly, it features a selection of sustaining tonal pads and evolving atmospheres crafted from the raw source recordings designed to provide natural accompaniment.

For the new version 2.0, a full-featured custom user interface has been added with a range of fully-automatable performance controls. The included EQ, Reverb and Uberpeggiator meta-arp system are intended to give the new Bamblong v2.0 a whole host of extended musical potential and playability.
