Steel Tones Header

Multi-sampled metallic tuned Percussion Instrument

Steel Tones captures the essence of a Hapi Drum, built by Hapi Tones, the Hapi Drum is a hollow steel-chambered acoustic instrument measuring 12 inches wide and 8 inches deep (30cm x 20cm). It’s in the family of steel tongue drums, also known as tank drums or hank drums. The concept was originally pioneered by Dennis Havlena in 2007 and has evolved into various forms by numerous instrument makers.

This particular model has 8 tongues tuned to a D-major pentatonic scale. Each note has a strong fundamental tone wrapped in a haze of complex overtones and harmonics and a long, very mellow sustain. Soundiron recorded it with a close stereo pair of Neumann studio mics for a dry and very present sound, as well as a second stereo pair captured in a hall at 15 feet for an open, spacious sound. They sampled it deeply with 7 round robins and up to 9 velocity layers per note, using soft rubber mallets and hard metal mallets.

You can chromatically solo, combine or layer the different articulations, tongues and mic positions to create your own unique sonic blends. You can control each layer’s volume with the swell control, adjust attack, sample start offset, release, semi-tone pitch-stepping and define playable midi key range. These easy-to-use main parameter controls give you truly endless creative possibilities. Soundiron also included dozens of expertly sound-designed ambiences, textures, soundscapes, organic synth pads and custom presets, drawn from the acoustic source to provide excellent accompaniment and underscoring tools.

The robust ARP system provides dynamic arpeggiation and step-sequencing options. The FX Rack page provides chorus, phaser, flanger, compressor, several distortion types, amp and speaker simulation, EQ, resonant filter, delay and convolution reverb. The reverb includes dozens of our custom cathedrals, churches, halls, bunkers, garages, tunnels, chambers, rooms and plenty of special FX impulses to explore.

Guter Sound für einen passenden Preis. Ein Lautstärkeregler für die beiden parallelen Instrumente wäre wünschenswert

ABER HALLO! Supertolles virtuelles Instrument! Vielseitig einsetzbar, die Sounds lassen sich ordentlich weiterverarbeiten, super Basics für Athmos, oder auch für das kleine individuelle Detail in so ziemlich jeder Stilrichtung geeignet. Get it and love it!!!

Die Sounds klingen alle sehr gut und lassen sich einfach abrufen. Eine Unterstützung über das Komplete Kontrol von NI wäre schön.
