Modwheel’s predilection for highly-useful, left-of-center sample libraries continues with Angklung. As much fun as it is to use, it is obvious that the developers had just as much fun while creating this library. Each sample oozes musicality with patches that can comfortably handle anything from world music to film scores to – yes – 80’s rock.

ANGKLUNG on Soundcloud
Part of MODWHEEL'S
ANGKLUNG is the third release in the Creative Differences series, a percussion instrument library that focuses on quality, organic percussion sounds recorded and designed for the Kontakt user.
Following in the footsteps of HUMDRUM and THE BENDS and WORLDLY GOODS it features a collection of 24 tuned Bamboo Angklung.
The Angklung is a musical instrument from Indonesia now popular throughout South East Asia. Made of two to four bamboo tubes attached to a bamboo frame.
The tubes are carved to have a resonant pitch when struck and are often tuned to octaves. The base of the frame is held in one hand, whilst the other hand strikes the instrument. This causes a repeating note to sound.

6 Angklung with 3 rattles each that play a tonic, major 3rd and a fifth. The major chord Angklung have been kept as separate patches
The single patches have 10 round robins of both up and down playing. The up stroke plays on key release and the volume of this stroke can be adjusted using the mod wheel.
