Soundiron updates Angklung for Kontakt 6


The folks over at Soundiron announced a new update to their Kontakt instrument, Angklung.  For a limited time, it’s available at the introductory price of $29 (regular price $49).  This library is built for the full version of Kontakt 6.2.2 or later.  More details from Soundiron below.


Announcing the newly updated Angklung! This traditional tuned percussion instrument originates from 7th Century AD Indonesia, and has been meticulously recorded to capture its authentic sound. Angklungs can be heard in a variety of traditional and modern music, from gamelan orchestras to pop bands and jazz ensembles.

The Angklung is actually best thought of as a set of several individual single-note instruments, each one comprised of a pair of bamboo tubes in a higher/lower octave pair sounded by a loose rattle. The result is a uniquely full, clear but short-sustaining, dry note.

Spanning nearly 3 octaves of a major scale, we recorded 18 notes of tuned percussion in both dry studio and spacious hall environments, along with a collection of sustaining pads, ambiences, and soundscapes crafted from the raw bamboo Angklung recordings.
