Orchestral Tools have teamed up with Alexander Hacke - from Einstürzende Neubauten to create a sample library which plays in their SINE player. It features 6 sections of specific drone flavours all chromatically sampled over differing key ranges, some with key switches.
Created by dronemeister Alexander Hacke they feature a wide ranges of instruments that he obviously had a hoot recording in Berlin's Teldex Scoreing Stage and Silent Green, with his Thunderbird Bass rig, guitars, strings, hurdy gurdies, voices, tanpura, didgeridoo, ebow piano, brass and basses.
Nick takes a look at the sounds, which also feature individual elements that go into making the full patches, tools for blending your own drones and a close/far mic mix to taste.
Drones is around 165GB to download fro OrchestralSounds.com priced at €189 euros.
