Hang Drum - Freebie

Beautiful, Characterful, One of a Kind

Get a taste of Hang Drum for free!

Hang Drum is the new instalment in our innovative range of virtual instruments, The Experiments. Featuring a highly unique set of never before captured articulations, this multi-sampled Hang Drum is truly one of a kind and captures an incredibly raw and soulful tone which is perfect for modern cinematic music. Performed by virtuoso Hang player, Marc Constantine, this library was designed to fill a gap in the virtual Hang Drum market.

With a wonderfully rich and intimate sound, this library is perfect for creating beautiful melodic lines, fast rhythmical passages and stunning, aleatoric effects. Our custom user interface was carefully designed to be both intuitive and inspiring, allowing you to warp and shape your sound with filters, reverbs, distortion and much more.

Hang Drum is an instrument that we had always wanted to record, due to its unique design and beautiful, rich tone. After discovering Marc Constantine, we knew he was the man for the job. Marc is a musician that plays the hang like no one else - a virtuoso and an innovator, his creative approach and sheer musicality brings his performances on Hang to an unparalleled level. After long talks about ideas and the potential for the sample library, we knew that we had to go all in and capture everything that we could, to make this the most detailed and comprehensive set of Hang samples on the market.

To capture the rich and delicate tone of Marc's Hang Drums, we decided to choose a wonderful, spacious room in The Nave, a studio in the north of England which was converted from an old church. The high ceilings and rich acoustic gives life to the sound of the Hang and offered us the chance to capture a wide range of microphone perspectives, from very close and intimate to distant and ethereal.

The full version of the libary features a variety of articulations such as Single Hits, Muted Hits and Tremolo, however it is what we captured next which truly brings the library to life. In collaboration with Marc, we curated a range of unique and inspiring articulations, some of which aren't featured in any other sample libraries. These include Flams, Knuckle Wraps, Harmonics, Pitch Bends, Spinning Hang and much more. These sounds add a whole new creative dimension to the Hang Drum, allowing you to have direct access to the tone and creative flair that Marc has spent years developing. We wanted to create a library that can truly enrich scores and bring an amazingly raw and lifelike sound which is usually unachievable with samples.

Kontakt Player is a free sampler created by Native Instruments, which allows you to use certain sample libraries without the need for additional paid software. Kontakt (sometimes referred to as the FULL version of Kontakt) is a sampler which can be purchased from www.nativeinstruments.com. The vast majority of our libraries only run in the FULL version of Kontakt, and therefore you must check that you have the correct version of Kontakt in order to use our sample libraries.

Please note that currently our libraries are not supported by NKS, however we will be updating certain products to be NKS compatible in the near future.
All of our Kontakt based libraries contain samples that have been converted to NCW. This has been done primarily to protect the content within the library, making it more difficult for people to use the samples outside of Kontakt.
