Gongs are mainly found in East and Southeast Asia. They are typically made of a flat metal plate, are various shapes and are struck with a mallet. As gongs are created in many sizes, we´ve focused on the most musical - middle to small-sized (5-26 inches).
The best quality possible was aimed while recording the entire library at 24 bit / 96 kHz utilizing the best available ADCs so that the natural essence of these rich percussive instruments has been faithfully preserved as a result.
Depending on the particular gong, the possibility to record multiple velocity layers was given. The perceptual tonality of each sample allows them to be played on the keyboard intuitively and in key. The result is a more than just a library of gong sounds; its versatile instrument capable of creating lengthy metallic textures, large metallic hits and magnificent musical bell and chime tones.
The library has been sorted by country of origin, and includes 80 gongs from Burma, Cambodia, China, Indochina, Japan, Malaysia and Vietnam. Photos and physical specifications accompany the majority of presets.
