Description: Petroglyph is a stone percussion library, a recorded collection of authentic primitive stone artifacts from various tribes and cultures of pre-Columbian North America, with some artifacts dating back thousands of years. They include the usual tools (mortars, pestles, whetstones, bowls, awls, hammers) and weapons (axes, spearheads and arrowheads) in all sorts of shapes, sizes and types of stones. The objects are carved from obsidian, serpentine, slate, flint, graphite, sandstone, volcanic basalt and animal bones.
The sounds range from heavy scratches and knocks to subtle, light knocks, clicks, clicks and ringing. We recorded 100 sound sets, each with 8 to 10 RR variations for each velocity layer. They can be used as unique alternatives to traditional hand and drum percussion, electronic percussion, sound effects, and for scoring game/software user interfaces.
These varied artifacts of ancient everyday life have been discovered throughout the continent. However, they each share the same general types, designs, and uses that can be found among the tools and weapons of almost all prehistoric human societies around the world. They give us an understanding of our common origins, about families and tribes, about the creators of household tools and tools, farmers, prisoners of war and hunters. These are not just curiosity – they are all symbols of our common heritage. And we believe it is important to give these finds new life and new potential as creative tools for the modern era.
Our instrument’s user interface is equipped with flexible control functions such as attack, release, transient offset, dynamic swelling, filter type selection, resonant filter sweep and Arpeggiator, which provides a full range of customizable dynamic arpeggiation modes and step sequence pattern creation options. There’s also a full suite of DSP effects, including a convolution reverb with a variety of unique spaces such as cathedrals, churches, halls, bunkers, garages, tunnels, chambers, rooms and a host of otherworldly FX pulses for an endless variety of strange and unexpected sound manipulations.
