HOLLYWOOD ORCHESTRAL PERCUSSION is the most detailed and comprehensive orchestral percussion collection available with unprecedented control over sound and instruments and a must have compositional tool for serious composers.

Includes PLAY 5 64-bit software, powerful scripting for ease of use, and more user control than any other collection — all recorded in the famous EASTWEST STUDIO 1, the same studio where many Hollywood soundtracks and television themes were recorded with a live orchestra...the home of major Hollywood Soundtracks and Television Themes.

Produced by DOUG ROGERS, NICK PHOENIX, AND THOMAS BERGERSEN. Sound Engineered by SHAWN MURPHY (ACADEMY AWARD, C.A.S. (Cinema Audio Society), BAFTA, and EMMY award-winning sound engineer).

HOLLYWOOD ORCHESTRAL PERCUSSION is an utterly unique orchestral percussion library that completes the Hollywood series, featuring one of America's very best orchestral percussionists and his inspiring arsenal of instruments. The Hollywood Series comprises of Hollywood Strings, Hollywood Brass, Hollywood Orchestral Woodwinds, and Hollywood Orchestral Percussion, plus Hollywood Solo Instruments which includes Harp, Cello and Violin.

Orchestral percussion staples like timpani, snare drums, cymbals, bass drums, and metals are sampled with such astounding detail and variety that you will find exactly the right sound for EVERY piece of music.

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. HOLLYWOOD ORCHESTRAL PERCUSSION also focuses on the speed of a performance and has specific samples to handle extreme tempos. Timpani and cymbals truly come to life when sampled as part of a musical performance, and HOLLYWOOD ORCHESTRAL PERCUSSION has the most extensive and fluid timpani ever sampled.

For the first time, an extensive array of epic anvils has been sampled. Truly the holy grail. Orchestral chimes were sampled in a way that mimics the sound of real church bells, as the instrument was originally intended.

HOLLYWOOD ORCHESTRAL PERCUSSION has an inspiring array of vintage field drums. Epic Bass Drum Ensemble and Mahler Hammer give this collection some serious punch. For the first time, the celeste has been captured in an environment with extremely low noise. In fact, the entire collection uses zero noise reduction resulting in a spectacular sound that will jump out of your speakers.

This library and the other libraries in the same EastWest “Hollywood” series are designed to work together particularly well; they include the same microphone position and other features that help them blend into a unified sound. So, feel free to add in strings, guitars, ethnic instruments, voices, whatever you can imagine!

      • Cymbal crashes
      • Cymbal rolls

      DRUMS

      • Concert Toms
      • Field Drums

      "As expected, this library is at the same level of the other EastWest instruments and it offers the same quality of another EastWest library percussion recently reviewed, obviously with different instruments, but it is important to mention the continuity and consistency in quality of how these percussion sounds were captured. With a team like this company has, we don't expect less when it comes to the sound quality of this virtual instrument. EastWest Studios are known for being the best recording studios in the world, with the best microphones and equipment available on the market. This, along with the interpretations of some of the best orchestral percussionists from Los Angeles, leads to an outstanding result. This library is a strong contender to be considered one of the best libraries of orchestral percussion. The 75GB of samples are fundamental, even if it hurts to invest 75GB of hard disk space to install the library. The variety and versatility of sounds along with countless options, microphone configurations and parameters that the user can modify in the Play interface, allow you to achieve the desired sound without having to rely on other plug-ins. The most spectacular feature of this library is that it allows the user to create tracks of realistic sounding orchestral percussion, without having to go to a studio and hire a musician. This product is highly recommended for composers and music producers who want orchestral percussion instruments in their arsenal of composition and/or production tools. For film composers, this tool is a must."

      "EastWest originally made their mark in the orchestral sample world in 2003 with EWQL Symphonic Orchestra, the first full-orchestra library with surround-sound capability. By completing the much larger Hollywood Orchestra project, the company has achieved another first: it’s currently the only virtual instrument developer on the planet with two full symphonic collections on its books. For the foreseeable future at least, it’s hard to imagine that anyone else would be crazy enough to take on such a task!

      Orchestral sample users are spoiled for choice nowadays, and the enduring popularity of the orchestra in film soundtracks has created a thriving market in sample products. Hollywood Orchestral Percussion is second to none: it’s straightforward to use, has a comprehensive instrumentation and presents a shining example of how percussion should be recorded. Super-clean, powerful, dynamically responsive and musically on the money, this is a library for professionals that beginners can also enjoy."

      "With Hollywood Orchestral Percussion, EastWest presents a superlative of symphonic orchestral percussion instruments for use in film music and beyond that, all other projects with natural rhythm. The audio quality is excellent and the instruments are extremely nuanced and dynamically playable... The elaborate timpani are in a class of their own, thanks to the controllable dynamic drum roll feature. All in all, the sounds and possibilities to play them leave nothing to be desired. With Hollywood Orchestral Percussion, EastWest remains true to its line and presents a professionally produced, easy to control percussion collection of exceptional value that fits seamlessly into the Hollywood series."
