GONGS IN DRY ROOM ●
A set of patches with a VERY detailed response range
Feng Gong that will blend smoothly into drum tracks and rhythm sections. We recorded up to 9 velocity layers x3rr
HALL SESSION ●
Standard articulations recorded in a great sounding hall
Feng gong articulations recorded in a hall. A good addendum to orchestral recordings and filmusic scenarious.
TEXTURAL GONGS ●
Experiments in vibrational transfer, wave movements and resonation
For the cinematic gong patches, we experimented with different materials, rubbing superballs, fingernails, scrapes, scrubbing and effects on a variety of gongs and outboard effects.
We also mounted a bass speaker directly on large gongs, triggering different sorts of vibrations from there. Contact microphones, placed directly on the metal, transmitted signals through hardware and sub speaker.
A non-standard percussion sample library wth Gongs in a handsome array of contours and configurations
A Kontakt interface programmed to be scalable
PLEASINGLY DELIGHTFUL GONGS
The gongs recorded for Torus deliver at all volumes for a wide range of music styles. The dry-room session includes a wide dynamic range with 9 layers and 3 round robins. The cinematic gongs are great for sound-design, textures as well as punch hits. And the hall session works great in orchestral settings.
