The XXL Tam-Tam from the Vienna Symphonic Library is a sample-based virtual instrument featuring the oversized 65-inch tam-tam. With a special nod to Stockhausen's opus "Mikrophonie," the instrument was extensively excited, including being struck with metal rods, cardboard and jigsaw blades, hit and rubbed with chains, and manhandled with fly swatters, an egg cutter, and a massaging rod.
