The story

This is the very basic ‘bell’ sound I sampled for the #globalswarm
project using my mums solid brass mortar & pestle.
I added some reverb to the sample and put it into Kontakt 5

  • Sounds beautiful

    Sounds fantastic. The high notes were the ones that got me hooked. They just sound so amazing.

  • A lovely touch

    This is indeed something that could be thrown into a mix to add a unique character.

  • A good sample pack

    I like the sounds of this pack. For some reason it reminds me of 80's and 90's movies. I would have liked it to have more controls. I also think it should shift an octave higher.

  • An ethereal mallet!

    this is a magnificent mallet-like instrument that has this fantastical - outwordly sound singnature to it. When you realise this is based on just one sample, you will get blown away for sure. For this reason, the lowest notes might seem to be slightly distorted, but that's fairly normal. The rest sound amazing!

    I'd personally like it to be shifted one octave higher, since in the "default" sitting position, you get a fairly high-pitched sound.

  • A rich bell sound

    A nice, bell sound with rich reverby sound. Unfortunately the reverb is built in to the sample, so there is no level control. There is also no UI to speak of, which limits control of the sound without going under the hood or adding your own EQ / effects. The basic sound is very nice across the whole range, though I noticed some crunching sounds in the lowest notes (maybe an artefact of the reverb being pitch-shifted?). But with the lack of UI it's definitely a case of what-you-hear-is-what-you-get, without much opportunity to tweak the sound to taste.
