Tonehammer is proud to present a teaser for our upcoming "Cylindrum" library to be released on February 16th 2009
The library contains a custom built instrument known as: "Cylindrum". The Cylindrum is a massive custom built tuned percussion instrument ranging over 4 octaves, so a percussionists dream come true. The Cylindrum contains three separate variations of the instrument (light, dry and wet). The light version is made from a series of 1.5 inch PVC pipes played by tapping fingers over one end, while microphones were positioned in the opposite end. The dry version was made a series of 4 inch ADS corrugated tubes with an open-ended rubber head played with a paddle. The wet version was recorded in our signature hall and has a more percussive feel then the dry and light versions - resulting in a sort of tuned tom-tom sound. The wet version is used in the demo (see below).
Cylindrum contains 3 separate instruments, 3 mic positions and a mighty 3,336 samples at $39.
Not to distract from your release, but I find these sorts of demos quite useless. When I'm considering a sample set purchase all I want to hear are the actual samples. Show how it works in a mix, sure, but a "pure" demo is the essential first step in evaluating the sound.
