Sometime in 2019 I ordered a cheap singing bowl online. It seemed like the obvious thing to sample. Recorded a wonderful pad, hit it, and discovered that if I spun the bowl on my desk before hitting it I could create a pad with a nice rumble.At the end of the year my Mum gave me another singing bowl for Christmas so I made some similar instruments with this.
I have also included 2 extra instruments, one made using my metal Chillys bottle, and another using the lid of a casserole dish. I have they are simple and fun but I did not feel they were worth submitting on their own.
Leave a review to let others know what you thought of the instrument!
Unique and usable singing bowls
These singing bowls are both beautiful and immediately playable. They fit nicely and unobtrusively into mixes, and offer a beautiful and rich warmth. The addition of the Chilly bottle and pot lid are nice bonuses too!
Unfortuately too noisy!
Even though some sounds are really nice, unfortunately they suffer from too much noise, and the attack might be too harsh for the most non-pad patches. I also found the pitch being kinda off in some lower samples. I liked the bowl sounds the most, because they reminded me some kind of church bells.
high quality at the best possible price
I didn't expect to find instruments that sounded so good on pianobook, but I changed my mind also thanks to this singing bowl. Very inspirational, thank you!
Nice eerie bell sounds. Slight detuning on the notes. All will come in to play to add a unique character to it. Another great one for the month of October! Enjoy!
