A Tingklik is a bamboo percussion instrument from Bali. It’s often used for “Rindik” music, so is sometimes referred to as a Rindik itself. Rindik music usually involves two Tingklik players and a single Suling (bamboo flute).
A Tingklik typically has 11 bamboo tubes, although the instrument we sampled has 12. With five notes per octave, the range is just over 2 octaves. The tubes are suspended using string over a wooden frame. The player sits on the ground and strikes the bamboo tubes with rubber-tipped mallets.
The Tingklik player uses both hands, bouncing the mallets in a constant rhythm. The left hand usually plays the melody and the right hand plays an accompaniment to it. If there are two players, the right hand parts are often interlocking (a technique called kotekan), giving an illusion of very extremely fast playing ; A “bubbling chatter of bamboo brilliance”.
Because the Tingklik only has 12 notes, it is possible to sample it in great detail without it becoming too large in terms of sampler memory. Each note was sampled at 12 different velocity levels, with 6 alternate samples for each level, ensuring a very natural, living sound. The Kontakt instrument includes tools for doubling the Tingklik to simulate the authentic paired playing found in Bali. Both the original tuning and a full chromatic western tuning are included.
The Tingklik instrument page features envelope and filter controls for shaping the sound, as well as Tremolo, Strum and Ensemble modules.
Calder is a generative music device that creates repetitions (loops) that vary in length while a note is held down. You can have one or two loops active, and a loop will be created for every note you hold down. Jammer works like a normal arpeggiator if you want, or you can set it to randomly evolve the pattern based on parameters you set: note, octave, gaps etc . Chord Mutate will take any input chord and slowly repeat and transform it over time..forever.
A completely user configurable FX chain: choose from 16 different effects in 6 insert slots - in any order you like. The Space processor offers everything from straight rooms and halls to ambient convolution effects.
