The Timpani, also known as Kettle Drums, are a set of 3-5 large, bowl-shaped drums tuned to pitches that create a strong, resonant sound, perhaps best known from its bold appearance in Also Sprach Zarathustra. Over six hours of raw recording went into this virtual instrument, originally yielding 1,300 samples. We've paired it down to the best of those and balanced it out across velocities and notes to create a highly playable instrument that sounds great at any velocity. Available as Kontakt 4, Kontakt 5, VSTi (32 or 64-bit), and Audio Unit formats.
- Wholetone sampling; 4-6x RR, 5 Velocity Layers, stereo.
- Kontakt version features EQ and convolution reverb.
- Ear plugs not included.
