Dave Stewart on the GAMELAN
Complete Gamelan Manual
|PROPELLER ISLAND'S COMPLETE GAMELAN CD-ROM* P.I. 01
Fantastic multisamples of a complete Indonesian, loud style gamelan orchestra:
GONG BESAR and GONG KECIL, JENGLONGS, BONANGS, SARONS and GENDANGS. Split
into 4 groups for flexibility and ease of use with different sampler RAM
1. STUDIO SAMPLES - superb stereo recordings of all instruments 2. MONO
SAMPLES - same superb quality, but requiring half the memory. 3. WORKSHOP
SAMPLES - alternative versions of all the instruments recorded in a small
Indonesian gamelan factory.
Great atmosphere and ambience! 4. REDUCED SAMPLES - a less memory - intensive
version of the work- shop sounds designed for samplers with limited RAM.
Use the reduced samples to load a COMPLETE GAMELAN of more than 80 instruments
and play it all from one keyboard! Also many UNUSUAL STRIKES - inspirational
and exotic timbres created by unconventional playing techniques. More than
1000 samples organized in more than 1200 elaborately designed PROGRAMS,
presented in both western tempered tuning and original Indonesien tuning.
A selection of beautiful Indonesian JUNGLE and CONCERT ATMOSPHERES capture
the mood of a real life gamelan recital.
