A steel tongue drum or tank drum is a round steel slit/tongue drum originally made from an empty propane cylinder. The instrument is played with the fingers or with mallets.

I have recorded such an instrument and created a playable sampler instrument out of it in a format of Ableton Live's Drum Rack.

The samples are legally royalty-free as I have recorded the physical instrument myself.

Adjustable parameters:

Fade in - Control sample fade in time

Fade out - Control sample fade out time

Spread - Stereo spread

Pan - Panorama (L-R)

Filter Freq - LP Filter Frequency (24 dB/oct)

Filter Res - LP Filter Resonance

Transpose - transpose all samples at once (by semitones)

Volume - all samples' output volume

I offer the device for FREE to use, however, if you feel like supporting my work, you can buy me a coffee, which I would highly appreciate! Many thanks in advance!
