View Full Version : Instrument in Shinobi 3 - "Idaten"

I'm looking for the name of an instrument so I can find a sample of it to use in a track I'm working on. It's the Japanese wood-blockish chime thing in the beginning of "Idaten."


It comes in from the right first, and then again from the left. A name would be cool, and if you can link to a sample, that'd be even better. Thanks in advance.

Actually that sounds like those japanese knocking sticks,what the fuck were they called....

Oh yeah, that's right, they're called Hyoshigi. They're clappers usually made of bamboo and whatnot. I've been looking for samples of those things for years. Your best bet is to do what I did and rip them out of SNES Goemon soundtracks.

Thanks. If I find a good sample, I'll send it your way.

EDIT: I ripped a pretty good one off my girlfriend's Fruits Basket DVD. The decay drops suddenly, but if you put it with some music and add some reverb, it's nothing noticeable. Served my needs perfectly, though. I'll upload it to Rapidshare or something and put a link here for those interested.
