Sample library for Kontakt that features a set of colour-coded plastic tubes that produce pitched sounds when struck together or in a hard surface.
Fun to play with a distinctive percussive attack.
Colour-coded, tuned percussion tubes
Lightweight, hollow, color-coded, plastic tubes tuned to musical pitches by length. They produce musical tones when struck together or against nearly any surface. Used by performance artists to add an element of spectacle. Also used by educators to teach fundamental concepts in rhythm, harmony and melody.
Sampled 3 octaves of boomwhackers struck on a rubber surface, from C2 to C5. Recorded in stereo in a dry studio environment using high-end mics, preamps and converters. 5 velocity layers and 5 round robins (repetitions per note). All samples denoised and normalized to 0dB for more natural feel without intensity jumps.
Why you'll love Boomwhackers
I see Boomwhackers as the real-life version of the famous synth pluck sound.
Boomwhackers are fun!
Widely used in music therapy with children and adults. They can be played by a group of people, each person gets a set of notes and together we can create music!
Solo and ensemble
With a simple turn of a knob in the main page you can select the number of players, since Boomwhackers are mostly played in group. An ensemble makes them sound fuller.
With the addition of our effects script that lets you add any DSP effect that you want to the sound, you can turn Boomwhackers to a complete tool for sound design.
