Gothic Instruments have just released the eleventh module in their award-winning series of atmosphere creation tools — DRONAR Rolling Percussion.
Don’t be fooled by the name, while Dronar Rolling Percussion has an extensive collection of expressive drum and cymbals rolls (and can be used just for them), its main draw is a massive set of beautiful, rich, atmospheric evolving pads harvested from an exotic new sound-world.
The rich organic sampled drums in the core library include timpani, tom-toms, bells, cymbals, gongs, triangles, tam-tams, a bass drum, snares, a vibraphone, a xylophone, plus more exotic pieces such as the pitched bamboo angklung and Malian xylophone-like instrument, the balafon.
The instruments in DRONAR Rolling Percussion were performed recorded and further processed by sound design expert Allessandro Camnasio. As well as natural untuned drum rolls, you get tuned versions of most sounds that can be played on a keyboard for chords and rich arpeggios, all responsive to Mod Wheel expression for powerful swells and crescendos.
On top of that, onboard effects allows all sorts of sound design possibilities.
You’ll need the full (paid for) version of Kontakt 5.8 or higher to run Dronar Rolling Percussion and from now until 21st November there's 20% off (£47.96, reg £59.95). Existing Gothic Instruments customers can save an additional 20% when using code GOTHLOYA20 at the checkout.
