Soundiron announce Hopkin Instrumentarium: RATTLETINES
The instrument is on a special intro price of $29.00 (reg $39) until September 2nd!
“These one-of-a-kind kalimba-like instruments each produce their own special flavor of rattle or buzz with every note having its own warmly resonant flavor. Rattletine includes two rows of tines, with the upper tines hammering against “anvils” as they vibrate. The lower row is clean, for a clearer tone quality. Mahogany and Hacksaw Blades both feature tongues with holes punched in them and small pieces of metal wrapped through.”
Hopkin Instrumentarium: RATTLETINES is a set of unique hand-crafted tuned percussion instruments created by instrument designer and sound sculptor Bart Hopkin.
When plucked, the metal wrappings rattle as the tongue vibrates, producing a unique buzzing sound. Aptly named, Hacksaw Blades uses actual hacksaw blades for the tongues. We’ve faithfully sampled tine plucks and percussive hand slaps on the instrument bodies, with two stereo mic positions. While this library works perfect for children’s music, it can also unleash brooding and sinister cascades great for scoring horror soundtracks. We also include a wide selection custom FX presets and lots of our signature sound designed ambient and cinematic content. This product is made for the Kontakt 6 Player and all NKS standard hardware.
