Tongue Drum - The Small Instrument That Makes A Big Impact

Tongue Drum includes artist-curated processed patches and rhythmic pulses to bring a modern cinematic touch to your music.

With its ease of use and exceptional sound quality, the Tongue Drum is a valuable asset for composers looking to elevate their work.

Explore the world of sonic artistry with our Tongue Drum, a remarkable addition to our Authentic Series.

This series is tailored for composers seeking top-tier sample libraries that provide a unique advantage in their creative process.

In our Authentic Series, we’ve meticulously crafted smaller, more focused libraries, showcasing deep-sampled authentic instruments in easily digestible formats.

Additionally, Tongue Drum features artist-curated processed patches, delivering a hybrid and contemporary twist to the core sample material.

The Tongue Drum itself is a charming, round, and ethnic-sounding instrument, resonating with a soft, warm, and mellow tone that produces a plethora of musical overtones.

It’s the ultimate layering instrument for any cinematic genre and equally exceptional as a featured instrument.

Tongue Drum offers four distinct articulations: standard, muted, stick, and tremolo, with the tremolos seamlessly looped for a continuous, mesmerizing effect.

Soft versions of each articulation are also at your fingertips.

Our meticulous recording process took place in the acoustically pristine environment of Triumph Studios’ control room.

We captured the essence of the Tongue Drum using two different instruments to extend its tonal range, employing Neumann microphone clones in stereo to ensure a full, warm, and expansive sound.

Customize your sonic landscape by adding your preferred reverb and effects or explore our engine effects to achieve your desired sound.

“I love working with this library!

The versatile array of tongue drum articulations sound great, and then on top of that all of the mangling and sequencing options in the interface take it to a whole other level.”

“Once again, Triumph Audio created a library I didn’t know I wanted, and now I use Tongue Drum like it was what I’ve been missing.

Just like their other libraries; Tongue Drum is able to stand on it’s own so well.

That is why I was able to write an entire cue with Tongue Drum exclusively.”

“Tongue Drum is library that plays as beautifully as it sounds!

This wonderfully captures the signature sound of the instrument and is easily manipulated into all sorts of colors that are evocative and inspiring to write with.

As a percussionist, I’m always trying to add new instruments to my palette that feel organic and have the ability to be both aggressively percussive and warmly melodic, and Tongue Drum really excels at both.”
