    24ToneGongs, 4 octave spanning massive tuned gong collection, more info..

    Thanks for your enthusiasm guys!! :D

    First a new demo, mostly in the higher range of the instrument, background info about the library follows..
    [flash width=450 height=110 loop=false]http://player.soundcloud.com/player.swf?url=http%3A%2F%2Fapi.soundcloud.com%2Ftracks%2F165585658&secret_url=false[/flash]

    After working with a live set of these gongs (and a percussion player) 15 years ago and captivated by their sound, i tried to sample them then but that didn't work with the tools available. We searched for a Library which covered these sounds, which wasn't available then.

    [​IMG]the_gongs by noiseguild

    We're 15 years further now and surprisingly this still didn't appear, at least nothing deep sampled. So we took on this massive task ourselves.

    Articulations

    We started doing test sessions with just 2 gongs, and we got really enthusiastic about a lot of articulations, resulting in doing them all for the 24 gongs!
    Hitting them in 3 different places with different mallets, bowing them, rubbing them and using them as lapdrums for fingerdrum techniques,etc..

    A quick example:


    Rub raw recording (camera mike)


    Rubs multisamped in the VI (Vol2 Bowed, Rubbed & Designed)

    Recording method

    We wanted to let people decide for themselves what kind of, and how much reverb to use on this instrument. And also to make it easily 'fit' into any orchestration.
    That's why we chose to record in Audio Ease's Anechoic chamber. A room built for research purposes.

    [​IMG]Anechoic_RecVenue by noiseguild

    The result is that you can convincingly place the instrument in the location (verb) of your choice since there are no reflections of the recording venue in the samples.

    Performance

    We worked hard to get all these samples under intuitive control. The Gong Machine lets you control the massive amount of different articulations with a sequencer like approach but still in a performance oriented way. It follows your playing closely. A short example below.

    GongMachine example


    Browser

    Since there are a lot of parameters and this is a complex instrument, we added an integrated Browser to the VI which can be selected from all 3 pages of the interface. It lets you choose patches and patterns from within the instrument.

    Ok, that's it for now, more info to come when it's release time, which will be this week!

    Oooooooh, if the price is right, I'm sold!

    I've refrained from library purchases for a while. New libraries are being released, but nothing has really stood out or appealed to me. This library looks set to change that! Words cannot describe how intrigued I am by the sounds demonstrated in your teasers. Very exciting stuff! :)

    I look forward to learning more in the coming weeks,

    Re: 24ToneGongs, 4 octave spanning massive tuned gong collection, coming early September

    I tried doing this for myself some time back, and found the gongs moved far too much to close mic - there was Doppler effect and phasing, and all kinds of things going on. And distant miking was out of the question since the room didn't sound nice.

    So I'm going to be all over this one.

    I really dig the sound of this library. it has a very haunting quality to it - prefect for Halloween coming up.

    How soon after volume 1 will the other volumes become available?

    Thanks.

    Re: 24ToneGongs, 4 octave spanning massive tuned gong collection, coming early September

    Thanks again for all the thumbs up!

    @james7275: Our original plan was to do all three lib's as one instrument. We were quite far in finalizing that. But then we realized it was all a bit too diverse to put in one package!

    So we've already done quite a lot of work on the 2nd and 3d lib. They are well underway.

    But we only want to release things which are polished and tested and furthermore we're our own enemies in coming up with new ideas all the time to improve things :D . With the current one we were almost done and then came up with the idea for the GongMachine, which took months to fully implement and polish.

    But as said above, we're well underway. I won't mention a date however for obvious reasons...

    Re: 24ToneGongs, 4 octave spanning massive tuned gong collection, coming early September

    @pingu: You're correct, this is not the easiest instrument to record! The anechoic room is great in that you can experiment with mic positions to capture just the instrument, there will be no room reflections. And the subtle doppler effect of the gongs (they swing a little when hit) is one of the reasons the gongs sound so gorgeous!

    Re: 24ToneGongs, 4 octave spanning massive tuned gong collection, coming early September

    NoiseGuild has released 24ToneGongs 1: Mallets&Sticks.

    Varying from 70 - 6 cm in diameter, this is a 4 octave spanning, tuned orchestral gong collection. Meticulously sampled in an anechoic room with up to 10 x roundrobin and 8 velocity layers in lots of different articulations. Mysterious & different, yet well tuned and chromatically playable!

    Some key features:

    - 8 Deep sampled articulations using different mallets and strike positions

    - Real anechoic recordings translate in a very clean sound with no room reflections, because of this the gongs can be convincingly placed in various venues using your reverb of choice. No reverb on reverb sound.

    - GongMachine: The GongMachine plays back organic sounding complex patterns using different articulations. See the Patch/Pattern tour and Walkthrough video below.

    - New Performance features: the pedal clamps and unclamps the gongs, using recorded multiple round robin real samples of those actions.

    - 7800 Samples, 24 Gb uncompessed, 5.5 Gb compressed.

    Here's a quick patch/pattern tour which shows some patches and GongMachine patterns to get an idea of how it sounds.



    Soundcloud:

    [flash width=450 height=110 loop=false]http://player.soundcloud.com/player.swf?url=https://api.soundcloud.com/playlists/49031099&secret_url=false[/flash]

    They are quite wild and complex sounding, but once tamed a very inspirational composing tool!
    Realizing this is something quite different we created a healthy amount of walkthrough videos to get you started and background info on the instrument..

    Walkthrough videos:

    1. Main Page



    2. GongMachine



    3. Settings Tab.



    Intro Price: €159,- (Goes to €200,- on October 30th)

    Intro offer: When purchased before October 30th you will also get a voucher which is good for 20% discount on the 2nd and 3d 24ToneGongs VI's. This is independent of, and adds up to other intro- or other discounts!

    edit: intro offer extended from october 10 to october 30th
