Antidrum and Rust are out

Recommended Posts

Tonehammer    178
Hot damn, our two new December releases - Anti-drum and Rust - are finally out. Yay! The libraries are a compilation of highly unconventional percussive instruments ranging from soda-cans to bowed saw, from boot stomps and scrapes, to water cooler drums, to stairwell railing percussion, monkey balls and baby toys. Together, Anti-Drum and Rust contain 38 unique instruments with a total of over 5,000 samples. Both collections are awesome if you're into way out of the ordinary percussion and there are a few quasi-melodic instruments in both libraries as well. They're both built specifically for Kontakt 2 or 3 right now, but we'll try to get ports to EXS, Sample Tank and Battery going fairly soon. Tonehammer Anti-Drum contains 19 unconventional percussive instruments sampled in a variety of ways, in various locations. It is a celebration of every day objects and sounds transforming into new- and interesting musical instruments. The Anti-Drum instruments ranges from work boot stomps to water bottle thwacks, clicking baby toys, wall balls, ukulele- and guitar drums, to shock mount thunks and clapping ensembles. It contains just about 1GB and includes 2400 samples. Tonehammer Rust is a hymn to man-made metal. The library contains 18 different metallic “instruments” ranging from huge sounding Stairwell Railings to a tiny Soda Can Ensemble, from dumpster percussion to an old coal mine air shaft, from Bowed saw to Monkey balls and much more. It contains nearly 2700 samples, totaling over 1 GB.
