RITUAL GONG DRUM – EPIC BRONZE PERCUSSION

Riot Audio released RITUAL GONG DRUM, an epic bronze percussion library for Kontakt. RITUAL GONG DRUM is based on a ceremonial bronze gong drum (“Karen drum”) from South East Asia.

RITUAL GONG DRUM is an epic bronze gong drum library sampled in pristine clarity – a highly versatile virtual instrument that ranges from intimate taps to ringing mallet booms.

This particular drum was in the ground for most of its lifetime as a ceremonial drum, only to be disenterred for ancestral and other rituals in the local village. It was brought back to the UK by renowned South East Asia expert and anthropologist Andrew Turton, during his studies there in the 1970s. It has since been in his private collection of artefacts and musical instruments from the region.

The drum was recorded dry. The library is highly playable, with left hand and right hand separately mapped for easy playing and programming of rolls and crescendi. The custom UI interface allows for control of Sustain, Tape Saturation and subtle Low End control as well as Reverb amount and size.
