Sample Logic and System Blue have joined forces to produce Rumble, which they describe as the world's first Kontakt Player virtual instrument to combine the finest in traditional marching drums with cutting-edge sound design.Here's what they have to say about it...
This superbly flexible virtual instrument gives educators, composers, and musicians an imaginative, innovative, and inspiring new sonic palette for creative music-making.
Featuring the legendary DCI World Champion Blue Devils drum & bugle corps and Scott Johnson–one of the most sought after marching percussion arrangers and clinicians in the world–and recorded by Leslie Ann Jones on the Scoring Stage at Skywalker Sound (a Lucasfilm Ltd. Company). Rumble delivers a comprehensive set of pristine, carefully crafted marching drum samples. Each instrument was captured using modern-day film score recording techniques at multiple dynamic levels, round-robins, and at close, mid, and far microphone placements, affording composers, producers, arrangers, and performers a solid foundation for realizing accurate, dynamic musical productions.
But that's just the beginning... Rumble goes far beyond traditional marching drums and enters into the morphed sonic realm of Sample Logic's trademark "blurring the line between music and sound design." All of the drums recorded for Rumble are not only included as production-ready multi-sampled instruments, but are also used as the basis for all of the morphed sounds. The result is a library that contains both traditional instruments and an evocative collection of morphed "cinematic" instruments, including transitions, atmospheres, and rhythms aimed squarely at the needs of TV, film, game and electronic music composers.
