Four discs jam-packed with over 2.5 Gigabytes of the finest orchestral percussion ever produced. Meticulous care went into the recording of these samples, and legendary programming makes this library more expressive than anything else available.A huge selection of instruments are here; for example 8 crash cymbals, 7 snare drums, etc. all at up to 16 stereo velocities. Many instruments also include right and left-hand samples, intelligently laid out for maximum playability. You get multiple articulations per instrument, such as rolls, glissandos, flams, scrapes and more for the most realistic simulations. Each instrument was sampled in its natural environment, the orchestra hall, and most include release samples so the amount of hall can be controlled via the mod wheel. All instruments were recorded in the classical tradition – no close mic’ing – to allow the sound to develop properly. Melodic instruments such as glockenspiel feature multiple dynamics and samples for every available pitch. Finally, there’s an orchestral percussion library for professionals!
