Sonokinetic Steelpan is our take on the Steel Drum or Steelpan popularized
by the people of Trinidad and Tobago. A tropical joy emanates from every
touch of this beautiful instrument. Steelpans are handcrafted from the
wealth of oil barrels that proliferate the Island State. They are a low
tech by-product of big industry and a testament to the creativity of
whoever it first was that heard the music in these barrels and started
to tune and cultivate them into the musical instrument of today.

The unique sound that is produced by striking the tuned parts of the
instrument is very rich in overtones, especially on louder hits, where
the whole instrument oscillates and resonates with the actual tine hit.

We decided to capture that sound using our proven methods, with two
different types of sticks and additionally with our fingers. The finger
tapped sound not normally common to Steeldrum playing but we really loved
the timbre when we experimented with the instrument and felt we needed to
share it with you for inspiration outside of the usual use of the instrument.

Steelpan is captured using five microphones, a stereo set up on the balcony,
another stereo set at about a meter and a half distance slanted above the
instrument, and a close mic below the instrument, giving you ample
opportunity to mix the sound to your liking.

To easily accommodate the distinctive playing method of this instrument we
also included an automatic tremolo setting that will alternate between two
notes when two or more notes are held together. Rapid tremolos are made
easy for those of you with less nimble fingers.

With a beautifully crafted themed user interface designed by Ryo Ishido, we
are very proud and pleased to present to you the next step in our traditional
music cultural heritage, “Steelpan"

Sonokinetic ‘sticks’ with its unbeatable pricing module and high quality
sampling, we are really happy with how Steelpan turned out and we hope you
will share in our enthusiasm for this instrument and it brings you a broad
smile every time you play it.

* The Interface

All of the controls for Steelpan are featured on the main Kontakt UI.
These include: hand / wool / rubber mallet selection, EQ controls,
microphone mixing, RR selection and tuning, convolution reverb and

* Mallet Selection

Click on the graphic of either hand, wool or rubber mallet to choose
the method that the steelpan is struck. Hand playing has the softest
timbre, wool is a medium strike and rubber produces the hardest and
most defined tone.

* 3 Band Equalizer Controls

The EQ section, shown here, allows you to quickly and simply tweak
the levels of the low, mid and high frequencies. Simply click and
drag. Cmd / ctrl click to reset. The EQ settings apply simultaneously
to each of 3 different mallet selections.

* Tremolo

A common technique when performing live on a steelpan is to create
a fast tremolo between two different notes. This can easily be
emulated with Sonokinetic Steelpan.

Hold one note in the playable range and then press another.
A tremolo crescendo will be played until you release the notes.

Turn the tremolo function on / off by clicking the button shown
here. You can also activate tremolo with your MIDI sustain pedal
(CC #64)

* Microphone Positions

The Steelpan instrument was sampled with 3 different microphone
positions: Close, Overhead (OH) and Far. This section of the interface
gives you control over the mixing of these positions.

Steelpan comes preloaded with a convolution reverb sampled from an
actual space to simulate a realistic environment. This control makes
it easy to quickly dial in some realistic reverb without too much fuss.
Adjust the wetness and size of the reverb by click-dragging on the dials
shown here.
