Thoughts

Waterharp 2

Waterharp 2 is a reboot of the original Waterphone library that now contains over 550 instruments and multis. Even though both of these libraries are a little older, there is no points deducted for sound and functionality. Waterharp 2 is a virtual sonic playground with sounds ranging from gentle and eerie ambiences to punchy arpeggiated beats, melodic passages and a huge selection of tempo-sync’d beats. I really found the Multis to be a great source of inspiration for getting a the base of a track sketched out quickly.

Thunder Springs

Thunder Springs is a curated collection of Spring Drums and Thunder Tubes that are played naturally and also abused with chains, crowbars and other tools to coax new and interesting sounds from them. No doubt unique is the fact that Sample Logic has collected all of the sizes and shapes produced, including the rarities no longer produced. Thundersprings is definitely hybrid ready percussion but goes far beyond with it’s arpeggiated instruments and the ability to use the onboard effects to morph and twist the sounds to fit your needs. This works well to create hybrid cinematic effects, in underscore or as part of a variety of musical genres as a percussive element or accent.

When all is said and done, this is simply a no-brainer deal! I love both of these instruments and have owned them since they originally came out. I have a clear preference for the Waterharp 2 because it is something I have used so often but you will find a whole world to explore in both of these instruments. Even when combined in one of my video examples you will see the potential to pair them up in a composition.
