Boatloads Of Articulations, Techniques & Playing Styles
“Flying Hand Percussion” was recorded using multiple microphones (up to 3 to choose from on each instrument) with a large selection of articulations including:
- Palm Hits
Multiple instrument zones were recorded (eg. Center, Edge etc.) and traditional Indian playing styles are also included.
Left and Right hand samples are mapped symmetrically (with unique samples for each hand), meaning all instruments sound and respond as if playing a real one – plus it’s simple to learn to play them!
Legato Drumming™ & Special Features
One of the most innovative features of FHP is its Legato Drumming™ Engine which adds real time gestural hand sounds when moving between drums zones (eg. from the center to the edge of a drum), creating an incredible life-like performance.
The newly updated Legato Drumming™ Engine now also includes auto nuance and gesture control including temporary dynamic muting (when playing polyphonically) creating an even more natural sound and realistic sound.
FHP’s interface offers quick access to control over Legato, Cutoff, Resonance, Release and Panning options as well as a large microphone mixing panel allowing you to blend between up to 3 microphone options (Close, Room and Bass Enhancer). Also included are a selection of custom impulse responses to use.
As well as organic instruments, FHP includes the Morphosis menu, which blends processed acoustic sounds with electronics to produce some obviously unnatural effects – perfect for film or TV work and the Mutants menu which are a selection of cinematic sound FX, re-pitched instruments and virtual ensembles.

What People Think About 67% off “Flying Hand Percussion” by Handheld Sound
"The overall sound quality is as good as anything I’ve heard and then some. It’s clear that a lot of effort went into Flying Hand Percussion and the results are impressive.
I know of no other percussion library with as much articulation control. While the underlying functionality is complex, playing the sounds in a realistic way is as easy as, well, playing a drum. I also like having a choice of mic position and ambience.
Flying Hand Percussion is the one to reach for when looking for a unique sound. In a sea of imitators, Flying Hand Percussion is a rare gem."
"I have used many samples and libraries in my day and there are only a few that I would describe as "go to." After working with and hearing Flying Hand Percussion I have a new go to percussion library. It's so realistic and seemless you'd never know it wasn't a live player!...If you're serious about sampling, composing, producing, or whatever else you have to have this!"
"The product aims to make the experience of playing sampled percussion instruments as realistic as possible, and it succeeds. The developer's incredible attention to detail, the multiple options, and, of course, the great-sounding samples make this a must-have library."
