Hits and strikes recorded over many dynamic layers with different beaters and numerous round robins.  Single hits recorded with mallets, sticks, hands and fingers. 

Our Runebomme sample library delivers deeply sampled ceremonial frame drums, complete with round-robin variations for realistic playback

Granular Sound Design

The [FX] Sound Sculpt-tools allows you to extract small fragments of sounds and meld them into expansive, evolving loops. It can also conjure the delightful patter of raindrops or transform them into a mesmerizing, enveloping wall of sound, reminiscent of the mesmerizing qualities of granular synthesis. VST

The drums are crafted from hollowed-out logs or tree trunks and are played using a stick or beater. We discovered that striking two or three drums simultaneously generated the most resonant and cinematic sounds. 

We do not specialize in traditional runebomme playing techniques. Instead, we focused on creating Framedrum samples that we believed were the most appealing and effective.

"I'm a player and huge fan of frame drums so I have a ton of libraries with them. This one sounds great and easily stands up to the best of them. The bite on the medium size is just spot on. Kudos for creating such an excellent sounding library."
