Tongue Drum

A tongue drum sampled in three different varieties.

The story

My wife just gave me this tongue drum for Valentine’s Day, something I’ve wanted ever since I knew they existed, and the thing I really wanted, a Hang Drum is way out of my budget. There are three instruments contained in this folder. The 1st is just the drum played as it normally would be, with rubber mallets. I added an additional layer with me dampening the extra notes for slightly more attack and clarity. The second is the drum played with sticks for a more percussive sound (play with the mod wheel, it controls the HP cutoff). Lastly, I made a pad out of it by time stretching the original sample, adding delay, and then layering it with a reverse version and also a time stretched sample of some toy bells; again, play with the mod wheel for HP filter cutoff. I think the resulting sound is really nice. I hope you enjoy.

  • Awesome to have this on pianobook

    Its so awesome to have this instrument on pianobook. Ive always thought they sounded so cool and im happy to report this library definitely captures the magic of the instrument. Its very resonant but in such a calming peaceful way, never feeling harsh or overbearing. You get three different patches here which is also a really nice edition including a beautiful pad. Im already planning on using this in an organic house track, i think it would fit so well but i think it has so many applications including scoring, new age and more.

  • An useful instrument

    This may be useful for many different situations, the pad has a very relaxing sound and the other two pathces can be used for lead melodies. This is very playable and a bliss to hear. The GUI is simple but is effective.

  • Deep Space Drum?

    I like the sound of this. It somehow feels a bit celestial. Could be good for sci fi?

  • Inspired me to write music for the first time in ages.

    A characterful, melodic instrument. I love the main patch most, it just begged to be used as soon as I heard it. An unusual and flexible instrument, full of tone and character used dry and spaced-out and dreamy with a huge pile of reverb on it. Inspiring.
