Vienna Symphonic Library IC Elements - Standard
The Vienna Symphonic Library Instrument Collection Elements is a sample library containing featuring water, metal, glass and stone instruments.
The waterphone is an unusual, evocative instrument with a diameter of 14 inches and is considerably larger than the waterphone used in the Vienna Instruments Percussion Collection. Its larger number of sounding rods, their increased length, the larger opening as well as the bigger resonating body with more water, furnish the musician with more unusual sonic possibilities and a wider variety of colors.
The oversized tam-tam, with a diameter of more than 65 inches, was treated with all the tricks of the trade, with a special nod to Stockhausen’s opus “Mikrophonie” and others. It was struck with metal rods, cardboard and jigsaw blades, hit and rubbed with chains, and manhandled with fly swatters, an egg cutter, and even a massaging rod.
The bottles contained in this Collection are blown – with articulations such as sustains and flutter tonguing.
The Elements Collection also features musical glasses, a glass harmonica and a verrophone.
- Bass Waterphone
- XXL Tam-tam
- Musical glasses
- Glass harmonica
Your purchase also entitles you to download the free Vienna Instruments player software that includes the Vienna Ensemble mixing and host software (AU/VST/AAX Native/RTAS plug-in or stand-alone).
