Tomtom (Gong) Sound

• May 2, 2016 - 14:02

For some reason, the sound of the tomtom in the software is not really similar to real life, and also doesn't do the kind of natural crescendo that it does in real life, and I hope it'll get developers' attention.
Thank you.


The tamtam does not have a general MIDI sound assignment in General MIDI. The sound instead is a Chinese Cymbal. You would have to find a specialty soundfont to get a Tamtam sound. I am currently building such a soundfont, but it will take a while.

Just an FYI: tom-tom is a type of drum, tam-tam is the gong like instrument. This will make your search much easier :) .
