IK Multimedia has announced the release of Cinematic Percussion, a new SampleTank 3 Instrument collection that's available now on the SampleTank 3 Custom Shop for Mac and PC.
This collection is a massive group of samples, loops and MIDI patterns that are taken straight from instruments used to score countless blockbusters.
The samples come from Greg Ellis, a percussionist whose work has been featured in Argo,Godzilla, Transformers: Age of Extinction, Iron Man, The Matrix trilogy and other popular films.
It has a flexible collection of audio loops recorded at 10 different source tempos, a generous array of MIDI patterns that have been performed and designed by the IK sound design team and Ellis himself. Of course, it also comes with a deep roster of playable single-hit instruments, all of which support multiple velocities and round robin.
All of these drums are mapped using an extended General MIDI mapping, which lets users mix-and-match elements from the Cinematic Percussion kit with elements from other SampleTank 3 drum libraries.
SampleTank 3 is IK Multimedia’s expandable ultimate sound and groove workstation for Mac and PC. It features an intuitive workflow that allows musicians to quickly and easily get down to the business of making music.
