KlevgrÃ¤nd Production has unveiled Ting, a percussion instrument plugin providing 12 different sounds originating from everyday t(h)ings laying around the home, such as silverware, a sofa, a toy drum, or a pair of car keys. Each sound is carefully multi-sampled and processed to be musically playable. Instead of emula(ting) yet another x0x drum machine, Ting is intended to be a creative tool and a substitute for the ordinary. Altogether, around 500 individual samples were used to make this instrument. In addition to the great sounds, Ting includes an EQ, a room simulator, a reverb, and a compressor.
KlevgrÃ¤nd Ting is available now for $19.99, with an intro price of $14.99 until April 28. It requires macOS 10.9 or later and an AU, VST, or AAX plugin host. Of course, this is KlevgrÃ¤nd, so it’s also available as an AUv3 plugin (the featured image up top) for $7.99, with an intro price of $4.99. This version requires iOS 9.1 or later and an iPad Air 2 or better.
