Sample Logic releases Rumble - Marching & Cinematic Drums

Sample Logic and System Blue have joined forces to release Rumble - a Kontakt Player virtual instrument that combines the finest in traditional marching drums with cutting-edge cinematic sound design. Sample Logic says that this flexible virtual instrument will give educators, composers, and musicians an imaginative, innovative, and inspiring new sonic palette for creative music-making.

Rumble features the legendary DCI World Champion Blue Devils drum & bugle corps and was recorded by Leslie Ann Jones on the Scoring Stage at Skywalker Sound (a Lucasfilm Ltd. Company).

What is Rumble?
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. Sample Logic and System Blue have also partnered up with Avid delivering Rumble with seamless integration in Avid's Sibelius 7 music notation software.

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.

Rumble offers extensive control over sound and performance, thanks to Sample Logic's custom-designed Kontakt Player interface. Building on the exclusive "multi-core effects sequencer" first introduced in their Cinematic Guitars collection, Sample Logic puts complete, customizable user control right at your fingertips, from spatialization and sound-swirling effects to sequencers, LFOs, programmable arpeggiation, a unique Rhythmic Articulator, and a fully integrated multi-microphone mixer. Rumble also contains a newly invented loop engine that displays loop slices graphically and supports independent editing, effects processing, and real-time automation of each slice. All together, Rumble boasts over 40 screens of powerful, intuitive user interface controls.

Every instrument included in Rumble has a full set of parameter randomization options that give you virtually infinite power to morph and sculpt any instrument in the library. Whether you're in the studio or on stage, unique new sounds are always just one button-push away.
