Ting is an instrument providing 28 different percussive sounds originating from everyday t(h)ings laying around the house – such as silverware, a sofa, toy drum or a pair of car keys. Each sound is carefully multi-sampled and processed with the common goal to be musically playable. Ting is intended to be a creative tool and a substitute for, or complement to ordinary drum and percussion instruments. Altogether, approximately 1500 individual samples were used to make this instrument.

In addition to the sounds, there is an EQ, a room simulator, a reverb and a compressor.
