This specially-priced bundle contains two libraries from Cinesamples. Deep Percussion Beds and Deep Percussion Beds 2 combined offer our entire collection of epic and emotional drum loops.
See below for further details on the products in the bundle.
DEEP PERCUSSION BEDS
Epic and emotional percussion loops for the film, tv and game composer. From deep beds that sit nice in a mix, to high-impact action grooves that pound through a track. For the composer on a deadline.
Percussion loop libraries have been, and will continue to be, a necessary tool for composers on the go. They can transform a cue into something completely different with just a few clicks and one pass on the keyboard.
Cinesamples decided to have a go at an orchestral percussion loop library, and they noticed many incredibly bombastic, active and gigantic sounding loop libraries yet weren't able to find a loop library suitable for the other moments often called on to score. A dialogue scene with underlying tension, or the quieter moments before all hell breaks loose, a troubling flashback to a long forgotten memory, or a scene where the director says "I think the music is saying too much here, perhaps we don't need music till the next part. Yes, the music needs to say much less or nothing at all (the editor nods his head in firm agreement)."
Deep Percussion Beds contains 50 Loop Suites, each loop suite is made up of 3 variations (A/B/C) and a Coda ending. Each Variation grows organically as a piece of music would, variation B being slightly more complex, and variation C being more so. Within each variation you will find the groups/stems which make up the loop to be mapped to Kontakt also. Allowing you to choose either the full mix of each variation or the building blocks.
We've stretched the Tempo Syncing Engine in Kontakt to the limit - allowing you to use each loop at a wide variety of tempi. Each stem was painstakingly sliced by hand at multiple tempi allowing flexibility that the far surpasses the native time stretching engine. Also included in the GUI are reverb controls, EQ controls and Compression Controls.
Deep Percussion Beds is a massive 9GB in size, and uses a combination of our live elements, private libraries and previously recorded materials.
DEEP PERCUSSION BEDS 2
The second epic percussion loop library from Cinesamples, perfect for the film, TV, and game composer featuring 40 brand new dynamic and adaptable grooves. From deep beds that sit nice in a mix, to high-impact action grooves that pound through a track. For the composer on a deadline.
These 40 all-new loops feature 2 additional variations each for a total of 120 different grooves that are all separated into low, mid, and high layers to allow for easy isolation, mixing and matching of the parts, making your work with percussion loops a more creative process.
The problem with most percussion loops is that they sound... well… loopy. Usually, epic orchestral percussion loops have the habit of drawing attention to themselves. They contain so much dynamic thumping that they place themselves in front of the mix whether the composer wants them there or not. The concept of this particular library was to create loops that are devised to be the foundation of a cue, as opposed to the gleaming facade. These loops are specially designed to act as supporting structures in your music, acting as a bed from which to enhance - but not dominate - your cue.
We have taken great lengths to create concrete musical variations. This allows your cue to grow organically, as it would with live percussionists. Each loop is constructed with five major parts: VARIATION A, VARIATION B, VARIATION C, Codas/Endings for each variation, and the individual hits used in the loops. With these different variations, along with the single hits, you can give your percussive beds more character and flexibility, breaking the monotony of a typical drum loop.
