This is another crazy and exclusive UVI Soundpack from UVI Soundsource: 80 ancient gongs and related percussions in one single library. Gongs are mainly East and South East Asian musical instruments, the shape of a flat metal plate, usually hit with a mallet. There are gongs of various sizes, and this collection focuses on the most musical ones, middle to small-sized, from 5 to 26 inch. Following our pristine audio quality policy, we did record these pieces of history with the best analog and digital equipment in 24bit / 96 kHz, to capture the essence of these rich percussive instruments. Depending on the model, we were able to sample in multiple velocity levels. In addition to the recordings, we assed the perceptual tuning of each sample, allowing the presets to be played around the keyboard. Thanks to that, the collection stands as more versatile than just a "classic" gong collection: sound textures are varying from large metal bongs, to magnificent and musical bell chimes. Instruments are sorted in a very meticulous way, from their original location : Burma, Cambodia, China, Indochina, Japan, Malaysia, Vietnam... Pictures and actual sizes are provided along for most of the presets. "Thanks to the UVI Soundsource concept, we can offer very dedicated sound libraries. Spirit of Gongs will open up to a new era of metallic sonic textures, from the traditional ones to the most processed sounds and musical FXs." said Alain Etchart, Founder and Director of Marketing at Univers Sons / Ultimate Sound Bank. SPIRIT OF GONGS is available for $99 as digital download.
