Inspired by the
creative PVC percussion instruments used by the Blue
Man group, I created this simple drum from a balloon
and three cardboard poster tubes. The first two are
taped together, while third tube, which is slightly
thinner, slides in and
out, producing different pitches.
This drum was
sampled at different velocities, allowing a smooth
transition from soft to loud. I also made sure
record/program "round robin". To make playing
easier, I mapped two groups of the same samples on
the keyboard, so you can use both hands to make
drumming more natural.
Both libraries are available as a
free download for Plogue’s free
plugin for Mac or Windows.
