The Indian Drone Instrument, version 2.

Back in 2014, Indian Drone was one of the first generators featured on this website. At that time, synthetic oscillators were used to recreate the distinctive sound of the Indian tanpura (or tambura). That sound became quite popular for meditation sessions.

Two years later, I am recreating the same sound, but this time from acoustic samples − sounds acquired from the real instrument. This new version sounds different — better to my ears and more realistic — but doesn't replace the original. Try combining both : they blend extremely well to create an even richer sound.

  Combining this with Distant Thunder on a heavy rain setting. Feels like I'm on my cabin porch watching the massive rainfall while having one of those ethereal moments of great realisation. Those moments you wish would last forever.

  I combined this with Canyon and Tibetan Choir, all on animate, and now I'm lost in some exotic desert land. It's really quite amazing.

  I find this fantastic for meditating to. It is great through the headphones and for winding down to at the end of the day.

  So relaxing, it gave me chills and I can see myself finishing this project tonight.

  Great with the sub bass from Indian Drone while adding a subtle shruti box at the 5th+8ve for a full spectrum of sound.

  Putting the two together adds many layers of tonal depth. It sounds amazing and it's a great studying background track.

  This feels like a gentle caress to the ear. Incredible.
