Hollywood Orchestral Percussion
Hollywood Orchestral Percussion is the most detailed and comprehensive orchestral percussion collection available. It is an utterly unique orchestral percussion library that completes the Hollywood series, featuring one of America's very best orchestral percussionists and his inspiring arsenal of instruments. Orchestral percussion staples like timpani, snare drums, cymbals, bass drums, and metals are sampled with such astounding detail and variety that you will find exactly the right sound for EVERY piece of music.
Available in the "Gold" and "Diamond" editions, HOLLYWOOD ORCHESTRAL PERCUSSION perfects techniques pioneered in Stormdrum 3, using unique repetition sampling techniques and 8 way round robin, that deliver a virtual live performance.
HOLLYWOOD ORCHESTRAL PERCUSSION also focuses on the speed of a performance and has specific samples to handle extreme tempos. Timpani and cymbals truly come to life when sampled as part of a musical performance, and HOLLYWOOD ORCHESTRAL PERCUSSION has the most extensive and fluid timpani ever sampled. For the first time, an extensive array of epic anvils has been sampled. Truly the holy grail.
Orchestral chimes were sampled in a way that mimics the sound of real church bells, as the instrument was originally intended. HOLLYWOOD ORCHESTRAL PERCUSSION has an inspiring array of vintage field drums. Epic Bass Drum Ensemble and Mahler Hammer give this collection some serious punch. For the first time, the celeste has been captured in a multi mic position environment with extremely low noise.
