The Noah Bells tuned percussion library is a deeply sampled collection of 21 authentic Indian Khadki bells in a wide ascending range of sizes and pitches, from massively resonant deep notes to small, brittle high notes. These hand-crafted, hammered metal bells are smelted from simple iron and copper mixtures, producing a golden or bronze hue. They range in size from over two feet to less than an inch in diameter, with carved wooden clappers. They have a dark, raspy and heavy tone with lots of mid-range body, a rather variable sustain and strong, complex overtones and undertones.
Listen to naked MP3 demos at Soundcloud:
We recorded each bell in multiple velocities with plenty of round-robin variation to create a naturally dynamic and truly playable virtual instrument. They were captured up close and dry in wide stereo and from afar in a large open cathedral sanctuary to give you very distinct tonal and atmospheric flavors to blend and choose from. You can use our intuitive UI controls to customize your sound with a variety of options such as swell, attack, release, tightness, tuning, vibrato, articulation selection, an optional sub-synth waveform module for tonal reinforcement and a complete step-sequencing arpeggiator system.
We also provide you with a full rack of Kontakt's multi-effects and a wide selection of our own carefully selected convolution reverb impulses offering a variety of authentic and sound-designed spaces. We also include a full set of our popular textural ambiences and custom FX presets, each hand-crafted from the raw source through various effects and sonic manipulation techniques.
