Spitfire Audio has announced availability of HZ02 - Hans Zimmer Percussion Los Angeles — the second virtual instrument instalment of Hollywood soundtrack supremo Hans Zimmer's take on his approach to cinematic percussion production for Native Instruments' Kontakt Player platform.

HZ02 features performances from Jason Bonham on his huge-sounding DW Vistalite drum kit, recorded at the epic-sounding Newman Scoring Stage at 20th Century Fox Film Studios (Century City, California) and the Sony Pictures Scoring Stage (Culver City, California), as well as a large concrete space within Zimmer's Remote Control Productions lot in Santa Monica, California, known as 'The Cathedral'.

Recorded by the Grammy Award-winning Alan Meyerson using numerous microphone positions at those three legendary locations to capture Bonham playing and hitting his one-of-a-kind DW Vistalite drum kit with numerous snares, beaters, and sticks, as well as banging 20th Century Fox's thumping great bass drum (originally commissioned by Alfred Newman for the famous 20th Century Fox theme), and mixed in stereo and 5.1 surround by Grammy Award- and Oscar-winning engineers Geoff Foster and Steve Lipsom, HZ02 - Hans Zimmer Percussion Los Angeles also features exclusive content created by Zimmer himself, including some serious hand-crafted synth drums courtesy of his monstrous modular systems at Remote Control Productions.

With everything deeply recorded with multiple round robins, dynamic layers, beater types, and playing styles under Zimmer's direction (resulting in 29,477 samples from 35.6 hours of source material to create 34.3GB of WAV format file data), all GUI and scripting design was handled back in London by Spitfire Audio.

HZ02 - Hans Zimmer Percussion Los Angeles can be purchased and downloaded directly from Spitfire Audio for £199.00 (subject to VAT within the EU). Native Instruments Kontakt Player is included — no additional purchase necessary to run this product.

For more detailed info and several audio demos from professional composers, including Spitfire Audio co-founders Christian Henson and Paul Thompson, please visit the HZ02 - Hans Zimmer Percussion Los Angeles page.
