    Hi all,

    I'm doing a mockup of this piece and am having trouble recreating the meditative pad and sprinkling percussive sound playing under the duduk at the beginning (0:00-0:30).



    Can anyone recommend a good sample library for this?

    0:09 & 0:17 Sounds like a bowed cymbal - but with the audio stretched to decrease both tempo and pitch? There are good bowed cymbal samples in Stormdrum...3? I think.

    Reminds me of a pad/textures at the beginning & end of this track of mine here:



    PM me if you'd like the production details.

    Is this just me or is the piano/pad relation quite out of tune?The synths are much more flat than the piano...

    Correct Christof - this was intentional to add an unsettling mood or sense of menace. The pad sound drifts in and out of tune like an old analog synth.

    The only thing I'm missing now is the sprinkly percussive effect...does anyone know what this is called? I know I've heard it before.

    Chimes, bar chimes, mark tree...
    Wind chimes can sound similar, depending on the size.
