The log drum, also called Slit Drum, is an idiophone usually carved in wood or constructed in a resonant wooden box. On the surface there are some woodden tongues that can be struct to play a simple melody. Our instrument is a “vintage” version of the most common log drum in commerce. It was used for years before we could get our hands on it. Some toungues were not perfectly in tune, and there was a small crack on a tongue that made he instrument to “sizzle” on strong beats.
But… we felt its sound lovely and authentic and we hope you will enjoy its sound too.

Duet — Win VST
Double-tracking/harmonizer effect developed to enhance vocals or instruments, such as guitars, by thickening the sound and adding a rich glossy sheen to your audio material. Duet works by independently pitch-shifting the left and right inputs using a novel synchronous overlap and add technique, allowing pitch to be manipulated in real-time while still maintaining the time duration of the audio.
