Why HandHeldSound

About Our Philosophy

Working with samples opens the door for realistic productions but it’s sometimes at the expense of a fluid compositional workflow. Dealing with many patches, key switches, and non realtime options can interfere with the natural creative process and composing turns into an editing job or worse yet, a stitching job. This is where HandHeldsound comes in!

When we design sampled instruments they must play and feel as close as possible to the real live experience. It’s more than just capturing ‘the sound‘…

It’s the ability to control musical gestures and timbres with ease, allowing you to transfer an instrument’s musicality to your productions using MIDI controllers. All without ever compromising the feeling of fluidity of playing a real instrument.

At HandHeldSound we produce virtual instruments from acoustic instruments  with a design and approach that streamlines your process and give you freedom to perform and compose in your DAW!

Our Products

Legacy.Acclaim

Following a number of small start-up products, our first real product was FlyingHand Percussion – a unique and dedicated hand Percussion sample library.

Apart from being one of the first “deep sampled” libraries out there with over 25,000 samples (there are only 11 acoustic instruments in this library…) it  introduced many new features that greatly improve playability and ease of use.

FHP’s critical acclaim and popularity pushed us to keep designing new instruments following the same uncompromising meticulous work of recording, processing, programming, scripting, and implementing.

For us, samples are not the outcome. It’s the framework we use to create truly playable and responsive virtual instruments.
