Version: Kontakt 5.1 / NCW / V1
Tuned Tunnel Percussion
Download Method: Kontakt Hub
We've built two different versions of this instrument:
- Metal Tunelle
- Wooden Tunelle
Both of them hold two full octaves of chromatically arranged compression springs. The different materials used for the resonating bodies are important factors for their resulting sonic characteristics. Metal Tunelle has a clear and long metallic ring, where as Wooden Tunelle has a more damped and warmer sound quality.
Springs always ring in several pitches at the same time. Depending on the articulation used, different pitches of the same spring can be heard more or less clearly.
Tunelle was designed to be played mainly by pulling the springs with fingers and quickly releasing them, letting the springs wobble and resonate.
Other articulations, such as horizontal plucking, vertical plucking, striking with a rubber mallet and plucking with a plectrum bring out friendly rattles that ring in distinct pitches.
In the Tunelle library for NI Kontakt you will find:
- 5 Metal Tunelle articulations, all covering 2 octaves
- 2 Wooden Tunelle articulations, both covering 2 octaves
- 1 Body Hits articulation, covering 3.5 octaves
- Up to 8 velocity layers
- 3 round-robin layers
- 40 presets
- 2 GB of Tunelle samples (44.1 kHz, 24-bit).
Installed size: approx. 895 MB using lossless ncw compression. Full version of Kontakt 5 required.
