The story

Had this drum from a good while and decided to record and sample it. The sounds are layered and processed in cecilia5 with the UltimateGrainer time stretch. The samples are then loaded with decent sampler format and both pad and one shot hit’s are combined. The microphone used was a shure beta 57a

  • Very funky tuning

    This is a very interesting instrument, because of its tuning. The sound is quite nice, with nice quality and very good resonance. There are a couple of issues with the tonality and how the samplers are layered on the keybed. The middle C is actually an E, so if you want it to sit properly consider putting it in -4st through the DS setting on the top right. After the middle E though, there are some undertones as well, which may seem weird if you want to use it for a lead melody, but it can do great as an abstract sound effect with lots of depth. It's up to everyone's imagination I guess!

  • Cool ambient tongue drum

    I like the UI design (totally not because I love the color green xD) and the sound, the offset (pointed out by Alex) can be a little weird, but not that big of an issue. It sounds best reverbed in the background in my opinion, and it does that job quite well! Good job, and maybe next time check the tuning ;)

  • Lovely

    Gotta thank Alex for pointing out the -4ST offset needed to tune this right. I thought it was just a bit off :D

    Lovely little tongue drum sample, sits really nicely in a mix - not too bright, not too muddy. Having some fun playing with it right now.
