EastWest releases Hollywood Orchestral Percussion - Completes Flagship Orchestral Series


EastWest has released Hollywood Orchestral Percussion, produced by a team comprised of Doug Rogers, Nick Phoenix, Thomas Bergersen, and engineer Shawn Murphy. This release completes the company's flagship Hollywood Orchestra, which also includes Hollywood Strings, Hollywood Brass, and Hollywood Orchestral Woodwinds.

Hollywood Orchestral Percussion is a unique orchestral percussion library featuring one of America's best orchestral percussionists and his arsenal of instruments. A composition tool for serious composers, Hollywood Orchestral Percussion includes PLAY 4 software, offering powerful scripting for ease of use and up to 5 microphone positions for control over each instrument including main pickup (Decca tree), mid pickup, close pickup, surround pickup, and an alternate vintage circa 1945 RCA ribbon room pickup.

Recorded in the famous EastWest Studio 1, the home of major Hollywood soundtracks and television themes, Hollywood Orchestral Percussion perfects techniques pioneered in Stormdrum 3, using unique repetition sampling techniques and 8 way round robin that deliver a virtual live performance. The entire collection uses zero noise reduction resulting in "a sound that will virtually jump out of the speakers".
