Nine Volt Audio tells us that Stickbreakers Vol 3 – Sync'd Cymbals Plus has been created for composers that need tempo sync-able crescendo rolls, dynamic controllable rolls, a wide range of hit types, and bow, brush and "swipe" effect sounds. Here's the rest of what they have to say...
Most sound libraries that offer cymbal crescendo rolls present several issues: there aren't enough, the length and/or dynamics aren't always right, and they slow the composer's work flow by forcing the micro-management of sample and MIDI start times.
To address these issues, four of the seven cymbals sampled for Stickbreakers Vol 3 offer tempo-sync'd crescendo rolls ranging from one to eight beats AND dynamic controllable rolls using the modwheel. With these options, it is only a matter of hitting a key in time with the track to get the crescendo's apex in just the right place.
Beyond the sync'd rolls, Stickbreakers' seven cymbals offer a broad range of articulations, including: soft mallet hits, stick hits, brush hits, piatti and piatti with performed chokes.
And creating cues requiring tension, mystery or a sci-fi feel are made easy by the inclusion of well organized and simple-to-use sound menus of bowed, brushed and scraped cymbals (and a gong, too!).
With a clear and beautiful sound, Stickbreakers Vol 3 will allows composers to work with cymbals easier, faster and with greater control.
