The Solo Dhol contains over 5.100 samples and +100 different articulations, including sticks, mallets, brushes, hands/fingers, bass bends and so forth. We deep sampled two professional Dhol Drums for this library, each with distinct characteristics. These drums have animal hide bass heads (called "dagga") and maylar treble heads (called "thili"). They dagga sides are tuned with a single heavy nylon rope, wound around the drum through steel rings. The thili heads are tuned with a series of steel lugs and rods, typical of most modern percussion.

We like to refer to the thili as "snare" and dagga as "bass", since they sound and function in much the same way snare and bass drums are used in western music. The thili sound ranges from that of roto-toms or smaller timables to nasty, abrasive, grainy and thrashing snare-like sounds, depending on the drum size, turning, mallet type, strike position and playing style. The dagga heads range from a bayan-like water drip to a taiko-like boom-crack. For this deeper dry- and close-mic recorded collection, we used a wide variety of sticks, mallets, brushes and hand articulations, as well as unique tunings, to explore the widest possible range of sounds that these instrument were capable of. We recorded every single note with a full 10 round-robin variations and up to 14 velocity layers.

The Solo Dhol Drum library includes two professional Dhol drums recorded in a dry studio environment. Deeply sampled, we achieved up to 14 velocity layers and 10 round robin per articulation. We recorded both thili (snare) and dagga (bass) with sticks, mallets, brushes fingers and hands. For the hand articulations, we've also included a set of nearly 40 tabla-like bass bends from slow to fast with 10 round robin each.

Included is a set of preset patches with pre-loaded custom convolution reverb impulses. We've divided these patches into three main types, "all master" which includes all articulations, "combo hands" including all hand articulations and "combo mallets" which includes all mallet articulations. For each of these three articulation types we've included five separate patches each with a distinct convolution. These convolutions are "bunker", "garage", "hall", "stairwell" and "valley."
