Sonuscore has released Dhol Ensemble, a free virtual instrument for Native Instruments Kontakt full version.
Pound through the mid-range with this potent display of percussion power from the South Caucasus. This hand drum is the main rhythmic percussion backing for folk music in the region, and is now available to you (for FREE) to add an authentic touch full of energy and movement to your compositions.
Tired of using taikos to build up the energy in your pieces? Try the dhol. The dhol fills nearly the same mid-range and can both stir up the emotions and tension in a cinematic piece, as well as offer a strong rhythmic grounding for folk music styles.
The Dhol Ensemble was recorded on a beautifully crafted scoring stage at Georgian Film in Tbilisi, Georgia. Recorded in pairs with a center percussionist, it gives the true feel of a 5-person ensemble. With the 5 velocity layers and 8 round robins included in this meticulously sampled instrument, the possibilities for customizing authentic-sounding percussion phrases are practically endless.
Dhol Ensemble requires a full version of Native Instruments Kontakt version 6.7.1 or higher; in the free Kontakt Player version it will run in demo mode with limitations.
