Web shop Eiravaein Works supplements their collection of unique sound libraries by releasing Jarred (1450 sounds, $21.00).
Jarred was designed to provide “re-imagined” drum kit elements. The sound library features mallet hits on the lids of metal jars filled with fluids. The result is a collection of watery and twangy metal hits in a wide variety of tones.
From the publisher’s website:
It is a meditation on toms, and as such was designed using three different sized jars, fluids, and mallets. However, the splashiness of some of the lid hits as well the fluctuations caused by the water movement extend into other timbre regions of the kit. The combination of these variables merge into a library of snappy pops and warbling strikes, muddled decays and ringing harmonics.
While the library was intended to provide percussive elements, I can see it finding a home as sound design elements, as well.
