Percussive Adventures 2 expands the borders of the original in depth, detail and creativity. If you've experienced Percussive Adventures 1 you will be blown away with this sequel, apparently.
Percussive Adventures 2 was created, performed and produced by Kurt Wortman and Tony Humecke AKA Beta Rhythm Farm, well recognized for their unique sensibilities as drummers, percussionists and composers, and the major force behind Percussive Adventures 1.
The versatility of Percussive Adventures 2 is multiplied tenfold from its predecessor by it's meticulous and much deeper use of construction layers. Staying true to the entire piece you'll find all the bits and pieces to design your own unique composition any way you want it.
What you get:
70 full multi-layered pieces. Full beds (full mixes), full bed loops, alternate mixes, phrases, endings, individual elements/layers, and some individual hits. Most of these pieces are complete in their own right and can stand on their own. You can easily expand, contract rearrange and remix to fit your needs. And it's not just percussion. There is a world of fresh ambient flowing textures and events perfect for combining with the rhythmic beds for complete soundtracks. Lots of sound design and creative processing here.
In addition the producers combined similar elements from all the titles into three huge patches: "Big Hits", "Ambi Ants" and "Movers and Shakers". These are a big convenience when you simply don't have time to hunt for often used elements.
Percussive Adventures 2 costs $399.95 USD.
