UVI Soundpack Spirit of Gongs

Saturday May 16, 2009. 11:51 AM, by Nantho Virtual Instrument > Univers-Sons
Virtual Instrument : UVI Soundpack Spirit of Gongs - macmusicUnivers-Sons / Ultimate Sound Bank introduces Spirit of Gongs, another crazy and exclusive UVI Soundpack which features 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 their pristine audio quality policy, Univers-Sons did record these pieces of history with the best analog and digital equipment in 24-bit / 96 kHz, to capture the essence of these rich percussive instruments. Depending on the model, they were able to sample in multiple velocity levels.

In addition to the recordings, they 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.

Spirit of Gongs is now available for $99, and includes the full version of UVI Workstation. Note that a video demo is available at :
