Welcome to Forest Frame Drums, our world percussion sample library based on three ancient frame drums captured in fine detail; the library includes many dynamics, round robins, and articulations, but most importantly a great space that works for both intimate and cinematic purposes. The drums are a set of hand-made, animal-skin instruments from the Ojibway tribe with a particularly warm and deep sound. While other frame drum libraries have opted for a more 'epic' and cinematic sound, Forest Frame Drums opts for a traditional approach that offers more flexibility and authenticity.

Forest Frame Drums sports 20 articulations for the primary "Forest Drum" which provide a large palette of percussive tones ranging from soft and subtle to bright and splashy:

  • Finger strikes (center, rim, muted).
  • Fingertips (center, rim, muted).
  • Thumb (center).
  • Hand (center, rim, muted, side).
  • Wrist (side, muffled).
  • Scrapes (center).
  • Mallet (center, rim).
  • Stick (center, rim, side, reverse side).

The Forest Drum was recorded in a naturally ambient environment, but with a close perspective, thus maintaining all the important detail while also providing more "epic" and hall-like reverb tails at the highest dynamic levels.

The next drum is a hybrid frame & hand drum with a deeper, bassier tone (the "Deep Drum"), and includes:

  • Finger strikes (center, rim).
  • Thumb (center, rim).
  • Hand (center, rim).
  • Bends.
  • Fingerpad + fingertip gliss.
  • Muted gliss.
  • Palm slap (+ cradled), w/ releases.
  • Stick + mallet.
  • Rolls + 'rain'.

Lastly, a bonus "Small Drum" is included with hand and thumb strikes - still with plenty of detail.

Library Features:

  • 2000+ samples.
  • Easy to use master patches with all articulations (one per key) for easy playability.
  • Highly detailed - Up to 6 dynamics/15x RR.
  • EQ and tone / envelope controls in UI.
  • Ensemble maker script.
  • Saturator, limiter and stereo controls.
  • Reverb controls with custom impulses.
  • Programmed for Kontakt 4.
