German Log Drum (356MB)

The German Log Drum is a 356MB virtual instrument. Each note of this 8 note pentatonic Logdrum has been meticulously sampled at 6 velocity levels, then turned into a chromatic instrument within Kontakt. The instrument used was a Schlagwerk 8 note Oak Log Drum in Bb major pentatonic (F2 G2 Bb2 C3 D3 F3 G3 Bb3).

Paper Stone Instruments recorded it with center, stereo and room microphones, and played it with timpani felt beaters (soft and hard) as well as with the hand.

BUZZ ROLLS

Buzz rolls are also included (2 octaves above the clean hit) and various percussive hits are found an octave below. Buzz rolls are where the beater is allowed to come to a natural rest on the note.  This feature was included for round robin possibilities and creative options!

FEATURES

  • 1188 samples at 24bit 44.1 KHz.
  • 3 Microphone Positions.
  • Quick switch articulations.
  • Original user interface and advanced custom scripting engine.
  • GLD Full.nki (All articulations and dynamic keyswitching).
  • GLD Felt.nki (‘lighter’ version with just the Felt articulation loaded).
  • GLD Soft.nki (‘lighter’ version with just the Soft articulation loaded).
  • GLD Hand.nki (‘lighter’ version with just the Hand articulation loaded).

Marimba (3.2GB)

The PSI Marimba is a 52 note, 10,221 sample, 6.2 GB (3.2 compressed) virtual Instrument.

The phase alignment of the audio was essential for the sound to ensure a focused tone, this had to be done for each note. The end result represents a forensic, audiophile yet characterful recreation of a world class instrument.

ROBERT VAN SICE ARTIST MARIMBA

Each note of a Robert Van Sice Artist Series 4 & 1/3 Octave Rosewood Marimba was intensively sampled in Paper Stone Instruments’ cinematic live room to recreate the authentic sound of this beautiful instrument, using 9 microphones and with up to 23 velocity levels.

MICROPHONES

To do justice to this 6 foot long Marimba they felt it was necessary to capture its sound using 5 microphone positions. Only this would convey its full tone and feel and also allow for endless acoustic possibilities in the mix.

Using the faders on the GUI the user can create the optimal blend of ‘Centre’, ‘Stereo’, ‘Wide’, ‘Ribbon’ & ‘Room’ mics for their purposes.

INSTRUMENTS

There are 2 main instruments:

‘Main’ with felt beaters (contains rolls and straight hits)
‘Soft’ with softer beater (contains rolls and straight hits)

There are also 2 patches which contain the rolls without the standard hits, for times when you need just the roll.

The main instruments also have a ‘Less Stereo Width’ version with a narrower stereo field – for situations where the natural width of the instrument needs to be reduced.

There are also 5 bonus patches which have a hard rubber beater, drag strokes with a felt beater and 5th, Minor 3rd and Major 3rd intervals also with the standard felt beater.

BEATERS

Also represented are the varying tones and effects created by different beaters and hitting techniques, and so have created nkis featuring Felt beaters, Soft Felt beaters and Rubber beaters, plus straight hits, rolls and drags.
