The story

Tuned Thai gongs are expensive, cumbersome instruments which many percussionists/composers in the United States may not have access to. Noticing a lack of high-quality gong sample libraries, I decided to work on creating my own! Me and a friend recorded a 2.5 octave whole tone scale, from the lowest pitch available to us.

Special thanks to Fernando Meza and Mike Duffy of the University of Minnesota for making this possible!

  • Useful gongs!

    Not everyone knows that Thailand makes gongs and that they have a unique sound when compared to your typical gong or Chinese gong. This sample pack captures the sound of the Thai going very well, with different velocities played as well. Overall, a useful set of gongs to have in your arsenal. 3 different mic positions as well, though the "Pan" knob was hard to see in the GUI, I did figure out what it was eventually.
