NI announces Discovery Series: BALINESE GAMELAN

updated 01:45 am EDT, Tue September 29, 2009

BALINESE GAMELAN virtual instruments

Native Instruments in collaboration with the sound-design house Soniccouture, have announced the latest KONTAKT-powered virtual instrument BALINESE GAMELAN. The new audio software is the second entry in the "discovery series," offering an assortment of ethnic instruments of classic Indonesian music. The instruments in this software were sampled from the London Symphonic Orchestra's Semara Dana Gamelan Ensemble, featuring three essential elements such as the big gongs, the paired metallophones and the kettle gongs.

The core instruments consist of the Gongs, the Jegog, the Calung and the Penyaca, delivering the basic structure of a melody. Next up is the "Gangsa", which delivers paired metallophones including Ugal, Kantilan, and Pemadé. Lastly, the third of the group is the kettle gongs, which offer the Trompong and Reyong instrument sounds.

BALINESE GAMELAN is supported in both the free KONTAKT player and the full-featured KONTAKT app, and provides features for switching between original gamelan tuning or western-oriented tuning, and a Synth version for tweaking sounds of individual instruments.

Users can purchase and download BALINESE GAMELAN directly from the NI online store for $80.
