The PVC Beatbox Ensemble was created by assembling a vocal ensemble and vocalizing through long, elaborately hand-built pvc pipe "trumpets" to create drones, dirges, booms, horn blasts, drum kit-like percussive chuffs, thumps, hisses, pops and steam effects. We gathered our usual ensemble percussion crew together in a large "epic" glass and tile hall with lush natural reverberation, assembling strange maze-like tangles of pipe using a ton of plastic PVC tubing and fittings and then attempting to beatbox through it all. The best word to describe the result would be STEAM DRUMS.
Originally released by Tonehammer as part of the Microhammer series in 2009, this is a classic experimental creation. We’ve gone back and souped it up, and added more advanced programming and a brand new special FX patch. Articulations include up to 10X round robin and 1-3 velocity layers. This library features 9 articulations, including kick, snare, rimshot, tom 1, tom 2, tom 3, hat/ride and crash.
