Overtone singing drones accompanied by Tibetan Singing Bowl overtones....

The story

I am a hobbyist and or closet overtone singer/chanter. Back off ladies, I’m spoken for 🙂 I recorded several passes of me singing while attempting to get some cool overtone textures. My cat looked at me differently ever since, but alas I did catch a few moments. Unlike my monk mentors, I have the ability to pitch stuff way down and it works great as a single note drone. Its a bit worldly but still has some sonic mangling in it to make it a bit modern too, I hope?

I also recorded a Tibetan “Singing” Bowl as well. This I kept pretty simple and let the natural overtones do the heavy lifting.

  • Unique and inspiring textures!

    What a great sample pack! The throat singing is really unique, but works beautifully as an underlying drone in many situations, and the singing bowls are beautiful and really unique. Another great library from Joshua!

  • A small journey

    This is a very small set of two patches that will surely remind you of the eastern mountains. It's simple yet effective enough to keep you awake in this dreamy soundscape. Being used to Joshua's way to treat his instruments, I was not surprised to just see a simple wallpaper and no controls included at all. Nevetheless, this instrument might be just right for your works.

    I played a drone pad with a Tibetan bowl, and awesome!! Very exotic set of voices. I really appreciate these playable and exciting instruments!

  • I love this sound!

    I think the title says it all about what this instrument does :D Instant himalayan feeling, which is surprisingly hard to find among other virtual instruments anywhere,
