We have not set out to create a definitive 'world' collection here, we have simply aimed to capture Inder, his personality, his style of playing and the varied collection of instruments he uses as part of his armoury. We don't dare mention terms like 'world' or 'ethnic' within the concept of this library because it is neither, and for it to be constrained to such genres would be a massive failure of intention on our part. This is the heritage, experience and invention of one man living and working in the melting pot that is the United Kingdom.
The library centres around Inder's primary instrument, the Tabla, but extends way beyond that in a comprehensive collection of drums, cymbals, and other instruments. Also featured in this library are Inder's extensive experiments using water to change the timbre, pitch and morph the sounds whilst playing (recorded with submerged water mics specially hired-in for the occasion!).
Herein lies a comprehensive selection of percussion instruments sampled deeply (multiple articulations, beaters, with numerous dynamic layers, round robins and mic positions) with a beautiful selection of microphones (including the aforementioned hydrophones), via Neve mic pre's and Cranesong AD converters in our new, raw, honest and dry Kings X studio complex.
This new studio space has an environment designed to provide recordings full of life and personality but without too much of a signature sound. The hope with our Producer Portfolio is to provide programmers, producers, songwriters and composers with inspiring and exciting building blocks from which you can create your own masterpieces! We have also endeavoured to include some phrases and loops to inspire you to put these instruments to their best use.
