Waverunner Audio Church Bells [KONTAKT]

Waverunner Audio’s Church Bells brings beautifully captured bells of an historical English church to your fingertips. Each of the 12 Bells were recorded from 4 positions at multiple round robins in and around the church; we scaled the ladders and laid many metres of cable to 2 rooftop, 1 church yard and 1 bell tower positions. The result is a flexible, playable church bell instrument with a rich, authentic sound. Alongside the traditional rope pull technique, we took the opportunity to capture a second, unique articulation; walking the scaffolding of the bell tower, tapping the clapper on the bell by hand. This seldom, if ever heard sound is included with 2 bell tower mic positions. The sound is a softer timbre with a more intimate ring. A bonus Bell Synth is included; an organic synth created using the spectral information of the bells.
