The story

This is the bowed and fx percussion portion of a multi-part percussion library I put together during my final year of university. For a few years now, this library has been a secret sauce/garnish that I would blend into my other paid and professional libraries and figured it was about time to share! Despite this being my first go at sampling, I had access to all of the conservatory’s instruments, multiple studios, and professional gear so I was pretty intent on quality and detailed sampling.

(The left knob in the GUI controls the close mic signal and the right knob controls the far signal!).

The rig:
Preamps- Focusrite ISA428, UA 4-710d
Close Mics- Neumann KM 184’s
Far Mics- AKG C414’s

The collection:
Bowed Cymbals
Whale-Soul Gong

  • The Hunter's Percussion library got bigger!

    The hunter hungers for more, and this is the result. Another amazing addition to the Hunter's Percussion library, now featuring many effects. As the others, these patches are very well-crafted with quality in mind. The simple yet very neat design offers two knobs for you to mix and match the different recording styles.

    Inside the Bowed Cymbals, the included dynamic layers sound awesome and they seem different enough to create even more variation on the already big range of sounds. The Whale-Soul Gong has a small range, but the sound is thrilling. Finally, the Waterphone has a huge variety of sounds, which are also colour-coded, and there are also 3 keyswitches that affect the first range (cyan colour). You can also select them by clicking the circle on the GUI, but it seems a little buggy sometimes.

    Nevertheless, this is a premium quality instrument. An awesome addition to the already perfect percussion series. Well done, hunter.

  • Another inspiring library

    This one brings percussion fx with metallic sounds. The work done in the waterphone section was quite substantial setting up key switches for different articulations. Well done!

  • Love the knobs...

    ... as well as another set of expertly recorded and produced percussion sounds. The first library was outstanding and while this is less "main stream" it's probably all the more valuable as a result. Not too many places you'll find sampled bowed cymbals and waterphones - let alone Whale's Souls. Badger's noses anyone? Seriously though, this just expands on what is already such an impression collection.

  • Unique and haunting

    This is a nice addition to Hunter Rogerson's percussion series. I'm still amazed that he gifted us with a complete and professional sounding percussion library. This FX section has some really unusual sounds that are great for creating interesting atmospheres. Some of these sounds can be pretty eerie and would fit nicely into horror and tension kind of genres. Overall a great addition!

  • 2 out of 3 ain't bad

    While Bowed Cymbals and Whale-Soul gong work fine in Kontakt 7.7.3, Waterphone hangs every time I try and load it and I have to force quit. Re-downloaded and tried again. Same thing.
