The Essense of the Ocean

In the same way the rain stick harnesses the essence of rain, the Sand Drum harnesses the essence of the entire ocean; hundreds of quintillions of gallons of water. The unique surf-like sound is produced by a medium-sized, enclosed drum about 1.25″ thick and filled with dozens of tiny silver metal beads. When gently rocked and rotated in a circular motion, the sand drum produces an amazing tidal effect, like waves ebbing and flowing. In addition to the ambient effects it creates, the sand drum, being a “drum” is also a unique percussion instrument, offering a variety of different percussive elements. All core hit articulations were recorded with 10 round robins. 

This library includes custom front-panel controls and modwheel automation to allow pitch adjustment of up to +/- 24 semitones, as well as room wetness shaping, going from tight and close to full and lush.
