Pan Drums by Soniccouture

"..The Hangs were sampled at many different dynamics using palm slaps, knuckles and fingers hits, resulting in 2.47GB of data. The finger strikes were performed in three zones round each of the dimpled 'tone fields', the central zone giving the plummiest tone. There's a choice of keyboard mappings, including one that arranges the samples chromatically across nearly three octaves. Alternatively, you can limit yourself to the Hang's original pitches and use a handy Kontakt control to transpose them into any key. A hugely entertaining 'Hang Jammer' script generates endlessly-repeating notes at a user-selected rhythmic value, with total control over the tempo, degree of pitch variation, randomisation and octave range — a great way of creating unpredictable, slightly deranged, gamelan-like grooves. Despite my views on capital punishment, this is one Hang I'm happy to see brought back. 5 Stars - Dave Stewart, Sound on Sound Magazine.

Smiley Drum by 8DIO

Whenever we cross paths with an interesting variant of the species, we like to snatch it up and see what we can do with it. Normally, with these types of instruments, we tend to go big and deep sample the hell out of them. However, sometimes, you just need a little taste to tap into the essential musicality of a piece. That’s what our smiley drum library is all about. This library includes custom front-panel controls and modwheel automation to allow pitch adjustment of up to +/- 24 semitones, as well as room wetness re-shaping, going from tight and close to full and lush. Note: This library was formerly known as Microhammer: “Smiley Drum”

Alien Drum by 8DIO. Alien Drum Overview The New Alien Drum VST (aka Hand Pan is a unique tone based percussion instrument, which is almost impossible to come by, since there is only one maker in the world and less than 1000 drums in circulation.

The instrument has a soft, sorrowful, melancholic tone to it and is a perfect companion for emotional or ambient type of scores. The 8dio Alien Drum is unique in the sense it was recorded at an average of 15 velocity layers and with 10 round-robin repetitions pr. layer/note, so you will never experience any repetition in the articulation. We used custom microphone set-ups to capture the delicate resonance both inside and outside the drum, since the resonance defines the true sound of the drum. Additionally we sampled multiple playing techniques with fingers, palm, slaps, hand brushing and the back-side of the drum, which has the similar properties to the Udu.
