Tablas is a deeply multi-sampled percussion library with a wide selection of live dynamic performance phrases. The tabla is a popular Indian percussion instrument used in the classical, popular and devotional music of the Indian subcontinent and in Hindustani classical music. The instrument consists of a pair of hand drums of contrasting sizes and timbres. We worked with tabla master and jazz percussionist Sameer Gupta to capture a range of tabla rhythm, melody and soul. Sameer has been a student and practitioner in the art of percussion for over 30 years, traveling the world to study and perform in some of the world's most prestigious institutions and venues.
This library was recorded close and dry, in a medium wood and masonry studio. We covered every classical tabla articulation and a variety of variants and creative alternatives for maximum flexibility. Tablas 2.0 comes with an arsenal of new features and a highly-customizable GUI that allows you to shape the live performance phrases in your own way. You'll also find a broad set of special effects, tuned melodic programs and mutations, as well as a mighty set of brand new ambient drones, pads, and soundscapes crafted and sculpted from the heavily manipulated raw source recordings. We covered every classical tabla articulation and a variety of variants and creative alternatives for maximum flexibility. Tablas is made for soundtracks, production music, and much more.
We've packed the user interface with powerful sound-shaping controls to give you complete flexibility. The main master Tablas preset contains all the multi-samples in the library and a host of powerful expression features. There are 4 independent sound layers, each with a full set of parameters that can be linked, automated and customized. These include swell, attack, start offset, release (with pad-mode), vibrato, filter, coarse and fine pitch, sound bank selection, and crossfader assignment. Next, we used various sound-design tricks to morph the sounds from our journey into tonal and dissonant pads, synth-tones and ambient dreamscapes. You'll find these in the Layer 3 (Ambience) sound menu. They can be played by themselves, or used to add texture and body to the primary sounds in Layers 1 and 2. Lastly, the Sub-Synth layer is a basic synthesizer with 10 shapes that can be added for transient and tonal support.
