Evolution Series, an Australian sample library developer, has created what Best Service describe as "the next generation World Percussion virtual instrument offering unprecedented sound quality and endless creativity".
World Percussion is all about creating beautifully engineered and completely unique virtual instruments for the most discerning film, TV, game composers and producers. It is a powerful and easy-to-use sample library using state-of-the-art equipment, a world-class scoring stage, and a treasure trove of beautiful instruments.
As a goliath 220 gigabyte library, it features sounds from Africa, Asia, Europe, Middle East, and South America.
It also offers up to 7 user controllable microphone positions, both stereo and true 5.0 surround sound, extensive array of velocities and round robin, and hundreds of unique MIDI grooves. Aside from both tuned and untuned percussion, the library helps to fuel composers' creativity through the World Inspire Sets.
"After four years, we are proud to present Evolution Series World Percussion. We have invested thousands of hours to ensure that this library will add a new dimension of authenticity to your next production," Co-Creator and Music Composer Anthony Ammar said. "By creating multiple versions of each instrument, we provide you flexible options to decrease the sample and CPU system load.
