Cinematique Instruments – Pandrum (KONTAKT)
WHAT IS A HANDPAN / PANDRUM
A Hand Pan consists of two metal half-shells glued together with an opening whole in the bottom side. On top is a central tone field with the deepest note surrounded by a circle of at least seven tone fields with higher scale notes. The creation and tuning of the tone fields is extremely complex. In the process of tuning, the tuner hammers several overtones into every tone field. This takes a very long time. Finally the handpan is available in a large amount of scales from all over the world. In addition to the classic handpan instruments with battered in tone fields, there is also the department of the Tongue Drums, which work with metallic reeds.
In order to give Pandrum the widest possible range of instruments and their variety, we have put together a very sophisticated selection of handpans and tongue drums from simple to top notch. They were all recorded in several dynamic layers and 8 round robin variations.
