Handpan MachinaSample Library
HANDPAN : MACHINA is NOT your typical Handpan instrument. This is our most powerful Kontakt GUI to date and it’s capable of seamlessly combining loops and multi-sampled Halos that we injected with our brand of creative modern processing to create otherworldly pads, drones, plucks, and loops. Each Kontakt Instrument features a dual XY Pad environment and it’s able to run 4 different layers with independent sequencers and FXs. The second XY pad is dedicated exclusively to controlling custom mixes of several effects so you can perform full cues in real-time while recording or automatizing almost anything. HANDPAN : MACHINA is a collaboration between Pulsesetter Sounds and award-winning composer Greg Tripi (Manhunt: Unabomber, The Fix, Ma). By combining Greg’s unique Halo playing and style with Pulsesetter’s modern hybrid approach, we have created a mean instrument capable of producing full music cues in one pass, thanks to its extensive flexibility and content.

Highly Advanced, Yet Simple At The Same Time:
Designed by composers for composers. A very complex Kontakt GUI hides behind a simple GUI that inspires. A quad-layer engine with a bird’s eye view of all effects and controls. Creating a simple approach to working with several types of sounds that lets you mix and match sounds, effects, and sequences.
A Combination of Natural & Sound Design Instruments:
We created multi-sample cinematic loops & pulses from one of the most pristine Halo (a brand of Handpan) drums available. Later, we processed the samples to make pads, cinematic loops, and hybrid multi-sample hits. Combined with our custom-made Kontakt GUI, a powerful cinematic and scoring-specific instrument arises.
A Collaboration With One Of The Industry’s Top Player:
Greg Tripi is a composer, multi-instrumentalist, and synthesist based out of Los Angeles, California. He is the composer for the ABC television series The Fix, Manhunt: Unabomber (Discovery/ Netflix), and he collaborated with Cliff Martinez for The Knick (Cinemax). His music has been featured in motion pictures, including Ma, Drive, Contagion, Rememory, Dark Places, and Hotel Artemis, as well as Academy Award and Emmy Award-winning independent films, video games, and commercials.
The Most Useful Tool For a Film Composer:
Such a simple and powerful tool that it will become part of your workflow. Film composers rely on combining pedal notes, rhythms, drones, and melodies to take the audience through a composing ride while keeping it grounded to one sonic element. With our LOCK feature, you have the same power in a quad GUI. This enables one to lock one layer of sound while bringing in and out other elements like loops, pads, and sequences.
We provide 100+ starting points and encourage you to create your own sonic story by using the recording function in the GUI.
Color & Space: Playable Effects for Eternal Change
The right XY is a custom effect live player that modulates several effects in real time depending on the cursor’s location. We call it Space & Color. The Y and X axes have a series of effects and modulators that can be customized in the Color and Space row of the GUI.
This feature adds additional playability and uniqueness to each patch while keeping them very organic and dynamic.
View and Select any FX, Mod or Sequencer Easily
Kontakt Bird’s Eye View GUI
Instead of splitting each page into a main GUI, effects section, modulations, and sequencer page, our GUI has a “Bird’s Eye View” of everything. Select the module of the module you want to edit, and its parameters will show up on the right panel.
Once the module is selected, edit its parameters on the right panel.
In this example of the Bird’s Eye View, the filter of Layer 3 with the sample “MSMP Nail” is selected for editing in the right panel. Controls and settings of the filter are available on the right panel. The Step sequencer of the filter has been activated and set to 64 steps at 1/8 rate.
Advanced Sequencer x4
Advanced Sequencer with three modes:
Chord Sequencer: Play chords that repeat
Arpeggiator: Plays one note at a time.
Sequencer: Pitch mode. Each step can be set to a specific note.
Amount knob: Changes the velocity of all steps at the same time.
Two XY pads with their custom MIDI CC assignment let you record your story. The left XY pad lets you move from one of the four sound sources, while the right XY pad lets you change effects in real-time.
Handpan Machina is a fantastic new instrument to add to the arsenal. It sounds terrific right out of the box and is downright fun to play. It’s intuitive to use and easy to tweak/customize. I love the big filter knob! I look forward to using it in all my future projects. Thanks Greg Tripi and Pulsesetter!

The authenticity and musicality of “Handpan Machina” brings such a warmth and unique sound to a score. The cinematic phrases especially are something I haven’t seen executed this well in any other library.
