Experience The Authentic Timbres Of The Javanese Gamelan In An Easy To Use GUI

Gamelan is an ancient artform of Indonesia; it is a musical ensemble most often containing percussive, tuned metallophones with meditative, bell-like tones.

The gamelan is among the oldest known instrument ensembles that is still played today, known to be at least 1,200 years old. Each instrument within the ensemble has its own unique design, size, and tuning, resulting in a rich and transcendent sound when played together.

The sound of the gamelan was hugely influential on 20th century Western composers like Satie, Cage, Bartók, Messiaen, and Britten, but can also be heard prominently in acclaimed scores like Akira, Battlestar: Galactica, The Girl with a Pearl Earring, and many others.

Impact Soundworks sampled Javanese Gamelan (as opposed to Balinese, or Sundanese) which consists of twelve instruments made from bronze in Indonesia, carefully played and sampled by composer Gonzalo Varela to capture their full clarity and nuance.

They have presented them here as an ensemble with standard Western tuning, along with the option for custom microtuning scales, and authentic Pelog and Slendro scales.

Javanese Gamelan lets you customize your own ensemble or play individual instruments in their authentic forms.

Whether you’re writing for soundtracks, pop music, atmospheric electronica, or New Age, we think you’ll find it incredibly inspiring.

What’s Inside?

The library includes twelve individual instruments comprising the ensemble:

  • Bonang
  • Demung
  • Gambang
  • Gender
  • Gongs
  • Kempul
  • Kempyang
  • Kenong
  • Kethuk
  • Peking
  • Saron
  • Slenthem

Each has been sampled with fully-sustaining and dampened notes, in 16 dynamic layers, which allows deep playability and responsiveness.

The single instrument patches are presented in two idiomatic tuningsPelog and Slendro – as well as equal temperament, suitable for traditional Western music.

The ensemble builder allows for per-instrument tuning, mixing, effects, and humanization, allowing you to create your own custom blend of tones in whatever note ranges you choose.

You can truly shape the sound of the gamelan with Impact Soundworks integrated Console Mixer & FX Rack.

In the ensemble patch, each instrument gets its own channel, allowing you to add up to 8 modular effects for each. EQs, compression, reverb, modulation, distortion and many more FX units are available, giving you endless tonal possibilities.
