Singing Slates is a unique cinematic Kontakt library built from sample recordings of a rare, custom built percussion instrument, perfect for adding an African or Tribal inspired melody into your music.
The handcrafted instrument we used was built from natural Welsh slate, by carefully tuning each piece and cutting it to size. Our Audio Craftsmen experimented with different types of beaters before recording to capture the most natural sound in this one of a kind instrument.
We then meticulously edited, balanced and programmed 13 different patches and integrated them into our Kontakt interface, giving Music Producers and Film Composers an extensive set of rare sounds. We have implemented 3 octaves of tuned slate sounds, which provides a positive, uplifting sound and can be used as a replacement for a Kalimba. This exotic instrument is perfect for creating cinematic scores, percussion loops and music of different genres.
As always with our Kontakt releases, our in-house composers designed 12 additional patches including kick drums, snares, kalimba, riser, creepy alarms, monster laughter and much more to add extra tonal and atonal elements to your music.
Our user-friendly Kontakt interface provides a variety of controls that encourage experimentation with the patches. The built in Arpeggiator and Step Sequencer are great for generating hundreds of percussion/lead variations on the fly. We also dedicated ADSR controls to shape your sounds while the main view provides various effects and controls to design unique sounds.
Note: The full version of Kontakt 5.8.1 or higher is required to use this library.
