Music Composers Unite!
Hi guys, I'm still very new to digital composing and my sound library is quite limited at the moment. I primarily use East West's Symphonic Orchestra and Symphonic Choirs. I've also obtained other little VST instruments and effects here and there, but nothing of great quality (most were free). Anyway, what do you guys think of Stormdrum/Stormdrum2? It seems like it would be a great investment for me for percussion instruments/effects. Has anyone had any experiences with this or other similar percussion software? Are there any other good percussion soundsets floating around that may be cheaper or even free? I currently have timpani, snare drums, couple woodblock sounds, and a drumset(hiphop) and I would like to upgrade my options. Thanks for taking the time to read and excuse my poor grammar :/
If you want percussion loops you have :
stormdrum 1 / 2
epic drums (big fish audio)
And if you want percussions without loops :
tonehammer epic tom
true strike 1 and 2
drum of war 1 and 2 by cinesamples
Thanks guys, and taking a look through Symphonic Orchestra, I didn't realize how many percussion instruments actually came with the set. Now I have something to start with and I know where to go when I'm ready to upgrade.
In particular I know I will be looking for some ethnic sounds like Djembes and the like and I really like the sounds (not just percussion) that James Horner used in Avatar.
I believe Stormdrum 2 (play version) is on sale until 12 midnight TONIGHT ($197.50) PST
