Sonic Couture Hang Drum

The hang is a relatively new tuned percussion instrument hand-made by two Swiss guys (see www.hang-music.com), which brings to mind the sound of Javanese gamelan musical ensembles.

The Hang Drum library consists of 12 Kontakt 2 format patches, covering two separate hang instruments, that fully utilise the software's scripting engine to create random sequences.

While Hang Drum isn't for everybody, those with a fondness for esoteric percussion will find it extremely interesting.
