The timpani are perhaps best known from their bold appearance in Also Sprach Zarathustra. As one of the few pitched membranophones, they play and integral role in the orchestral percussion section.
We have balanced the samples out across velocities and notes to create a highly playable instrument with a broad dynamic range and an exceptionally punchy top velocity.
Features 4-6 RR, 5 velocity layers, wholetone sampling.
This particular set of timpani is not part of VSCO 2.
WITH A MIGHTY THUNDER...
Timpani was recorded with a large array of mics to provide a powerful performance by carefully blending many perspectives together.
Unlike many timpani libraries which sit too far back in a mix, we designed Timpani to be raw and energetic, like the sound of the true instruments themselves.
Although one of our earlier projects, it's still one of our favorites in terms of final product. We couldn't be happier!
