FlyingHand Percussion is a dedicated Hand-Percussion sample library.

It represents an authentic and evocative ensemble utilizing a great number of articulations, true replication of the drums’ behavior at various playing techniques, and authentic nuances from each instrument. Whether you are composing or playing live, the outcome is great responsiveness, authentic character, and complete genre freedom no matter the type of music you play or write.

ArticulationPercussion instruments in general, and hand Percussion in particular, offer so much more diversity beyond the stock idiomatic articulations. Especially when expanding traditional articulations with extended and unique playing methods. In doing so, each instrument becomes a world of sound, giving you an opportunity for expressive thematic writing.
The all-new Version 1.5 offers a completely redesigned user interface with total control over microphone positions including sample unload to save memory. The library was re-programmed with numerous enhancements and new features:

  • Brand new Interface featuring a detailed visual display of articulations, playing zones, mixer and more.
  • Better handling of round robin alternates.
  • A single patch design with all microphone positions including samples load/unload.
  • Brand new Legato Drumming™ engine, which includes auto nuance and gesture control including dynamic muting.
  • Patches load much faster.
  • Compatible with Kontakt 4 and above (full retail version required).
  • Downloadable and watermarked.
  • An update for users of FHP 1.0 is available through HandheldSound directly

With FlyingHand Percussion, all instruments sound and respond as if playing a real one. Most importantly, each drum fulfills its true musical potential with a multitude of extended articulation techniques using unconventional playing styles.

Very good sample quality and lay-out. Still one of the best there is. Only minor issue is that the product is missing some percussion instruments I would love to have included.
