Tamtams & Gongs features four Tamtams of different sizes (60, 100, and 130 cm diameter). We’ve recorded not only single hits in various velocities, but also tremolos and scratches – these sounds have become very popular in film scoring and sound design. Unlike the tamtams, the gongs have a definite pitch and a knob in the center.
You’ll find gongs played with different mallets (soft, wood, metal) and a bow, including rolls and crescendo articulations. As a third category, the finger cymbals (low and high) are featured with normal strokes, side strokes, and rubs. With Tamtams & Gongs you’ll bring some exotic flavor to your music!
The Standard and Extended Libraries of the Download Instrument offer the complete samples and articulations on par with the ones of the big Vienna Instruments Collection Percussion. Please find a detailed list of included playing techniques under the menu item Sample Content.
Your purchase of Tamtams & Gongs entitles you to download the free Vienna Instruments player software that includes the Vienna Ensemble mixing and host software.
