Tonehammer releases Small Epic Percussion for Kontakt


Tonehammer has announced the release of Small Epic Percussion for Native Instruments' Kontakt.

Small Epic Percussion is a collection of small orchestral and ethnic percussion instruments intended to compliment Tonehammer's existing collection of epic drums. Tonehammer captured the majority of them in the same epic hall and using the same techniques as their Epic Dohl, Tom and other wet libraries, so Tonehammer thinks it will mesh well with most of them right out of the box.

It also stands alone as a unique toolbox of under-appreciated but often called-for items, like the tambourine and finger cymbals. Tonehammer not only went out of their way to capture these instruments as deeply as possible, but tried to discover new ways of thinking about and playing them. You may notice some unorthodox articulations included with some of the instruments, as well as a few strange combinations and mutations that Tonehammer hopes will inspire you to play and create.

The release includes about 2,800 samples of instruments ranging from solo and ensemble claves, vibraslap, sticks, rattles, various shakers, metal rattles and bells. The most comprehensive instruments include large tambourine, finger cymbals, ships bell, concert triangle, native american rabbit skin shaker/hand drum, monkey drum, wooden frog rasps and a bonus section of eerie ambiences.
