CinePerc AUX is an auxiliary expansion to the other CinePerc options that will expand your template along with your creativity. These samples were recorded along with the rest of CinePerc at the SONY Scoring Stage, and were also mixed by Dennis Sands. This expansion includes many of the other colors you’ll need in your percussion writing. It includes ethnic instruments, toys, and other knick-knacks to give your pieces an extra flavor. The ability to use off-the-beaten-path sounds is essential in film, tv, and video-game writing, and we recorded every random instrument we could get a hold of!
One of the highlights of the CinePerc AUX library is this sheer variety of timbral choices. As composers, we’re always looking for ways to stand apart from the crowd in our music. With instruments like the Bodhran, Anklungs, Ethnic Chimes, Ethnic Shakers, Log Drum, Monkey Sticks, Talking Drums and Tambourika, this library will add a great variety of creative and unique auxiliary colors to your composing palette. CinePerc breaks new ground in the addition of a new “LFE/SUB” channel. All of the instruments requiring this additional low-end boost were mixed by Dennis Sands to contain this channel. So, for those of us with a surround and sub setup, you can send this LFE/SUB channel to your sub. Add that to the QUAD mix, and you have a near-final mix for large movie theaters. Along with the LFE channel (on most instruments), CinePerc adds in the standard Full Mix from Dennis Sands, Close, Overhead, Mid Room, Room and Surrounds. When the LFE is created (for the low frequency instruments) the Room and Surrounds transform into a QUAD Front and QUAD rear channel creating a perfect 4.1 environment specifically remixed by Dennis Sands. Check out the link below to see how different microphone positions can drastically change your mix, this also highlights how versatile our library can be.
