Ancient Heavy Boxes is a cinematic Percussion Library for Native Instruments Kontakt 5.
What is so special about this library?
Ten cardboard-boxes have been recorded in different positions and styles. We used sticks, brushes and hammers. We hit, scratched and smashed them. And after recording over 5000 samples we chose 2500 to be the best so we can come up with 15 unique patches:
- Bass Drum 1 & 2.
- Brushed Boxes 1 - 6.
- Paper Djembe.
- Taikos 1 - 3.
- Tom Drums 1 - 3.
Boxes? Made of paper? Hit with drumsticks?
Yeah, we know how crazy that sounds. But recorded in the right way they really sound fantastic. We found out that paper boxes have a special unique sound that can give some very interesting edge to a track. Even the Genre doesn't matter. The "Ancient Heavy Boxes" can be used in Cinematic Trailer tracks as good as they could fit in Indie Rock songs acting like big tom drums. Just open your mind and play around.
Most of the patches consist of 10 white playable keys so you have one and a half octaves to play around with your drum sounds. As always our library is completely dry so it will be very easy to integrate this library in your template by using your own reverbs. The samples are recorded and processed in 41kHz / 16-bit and the Zip file requires about 500 MB disk space.
