SONiVOX MI has released FlyingHand Percussion (Mac/Win; $259), a Kontakt 2 sample library featuring a unique selection of hand percussion and electronic percussion instruments. The 4-DVD set has over 40,000 samples of percussion instruments with myriad articulations and dynamics, multiple microphone positions, alternate takes to avoid repetitive sounds, and a Legato Drumming feature that inserts nuances and tonal variances to make the performance more musical.
Produced by veteran sound designer/composer Eitan Teomi of Handheld Sound, FlyingHand Percussion ships in a package that was actually hand made by artisans from Nepal.
As a sneak preview, SONiVOX MI is giving away almost 600 MB of this collection free at www.sonivoxmi.com. Visit the Web site to get free sounds, listen to demos, and view a complete list of instruments included in FlyingHand Percussion.
