The German Log Drum is a 356MB virtual instrument. Each note of our 8-note pentatonic Logdrum has been meticulously sampled at 6 velocity levels, then turned into a chromatic instrument within Kontakt. The instrument used was a Schlagwerk 8 note Oak Log Drum in Bb major pentatonic (F2 G2 Bb2 C3 D3 F3 G3 Bb3)
We recorded it with center, stereo, and room microphones, and played it with timpani felt beaters (soft and hard) as well as with the hand.
