NATURAL PERCUSSION

An exhaustive set of 55 orchestral percussion instruments, recorded at Studio 22, Budapest. PERCUSSION offers superb balance between precision and ambience, and the range and playability to meet the needs of any orchestral production task. It also provides an outstanding percussion set for pop and electronic genres.

PRECISION AND AMBIENCE

With a wide range of both classic and exotic percussive instruments, diverse articulations and powerful drum head resonance simulation, PERCUSSION is the definitive set of orchestral rhythm tools. An ultra-detailed spot microphone for transient detail adds to four distinct room mixes, providing the depth and versatility to work with any composition and genre.

PERCUSSION is available in full SYMPHONY SERIES version or streamlined SYMPHONY ESSENTIALS version.

FEATURES

PERCUSSION offers powerful performance features and a wide range of both essential and exotic percussion instruments.

RESONANCE SIMULATION

PERCUSSION uses a unique sampling and playback system for unprecedented realism. Drum Head Resonance Simulation (DHRS) intelligently switches between recordings of strikes on still drum heads and recordings with resonating drum heads. This allows round-robin sets that recreate the real-world sound of played drums, adjusting for style and performance.

55 INSTRUMENTS, 7 KITS

This diverse palette of percussion instruments offers symphonic classics like timpani, snare, and concert toms, alongside tuned percussion like celesta, marimba, and vibraphone, and even playful hand percussion like agogo, jawbone, temple blocks, and much more. Each instrument can be played individually or as one of seven smartly combined kits.
