Free Windows Percussion Plugin, Otobongo


Buying Choices

Mildon Studios has released Otobongo, an unusual free VSTi based on a cowhide bongo. 

Here's what they have to say about Otobongo:

Here's the next installment to my let-me-find-a-good-use-for-ethnic-instruments-in-my-studio project: an authentic cowhide bongo made in the mountain province of Benguet, Philippines. I bought it on the day of my college graduation so it's really special to me. 

If you've ever had a cowhide bongo you would know that they don't have much resonance like the conga, instead they're very natural-sounding, more earthy. It's great for world and ethnic music styles. So if you're making the soundtrack for the next Pocahontas sequel, maybe this can come handy.

Since there are already hundreds of percussion kits going around in the net, I thought I'd just have fun with it and add a little twist. I call it, Otobongo (read auto-bongo), because it automatically varies the location and intensity of the tap each time you press the key. Now you can assign the whole instrument to a single drum pad on your keyboard. Works great on my Axiom 61.

Availability

Otobongo is available now as a free download for Windows.
