In over 2 days of session time, we captured the wonderful sound of an orchestral timpani with it´s many different facets in one of our favorite venues: The Teldex scoring stage in Berlin. The same stage where we recorded Berlin Woodwinds and THE Glock. THE Timpani is the first library of it´s kind with True Damping Control, which enables you to dampen the skin on a very natural way by using special recorded release samples. The instrument was played by Sebastian Trimolt (credits includes soundtrack recordings for “The International” and Blue Man Group).
Choose between 4 different mallets from soft to hard and a special baroque version.
Pre-recorded crescendos and diminuendos in many different lengths and dynamics, controllable with customizable keyswitches.
Tempo synced repetitions
