Don’t be fooled by the name - yes Dronar Rolling Percussion has lots of great expressive drum and cymbals rolls (and can be used just for them!), but its main draw is a massive set of beautiful, rich atmospheric evolving pads from an exotic new sound-world.

The rich organic drums include timpani, tom-toms, bells, cymbals, gongs, triangles, tam-tams, bass drum, snares, vibraphone, angklung, xylophone and balafon.

They were performed, recorded and further processed by sound design expert Alessandro Camnasio. As well as natural untuned drum rolls, we get tuned versions of most sounds that can be played on a keyboard for chords and rich arpeggios, all beautifully responsive to Mod Wheel expression for powerful swells and crescendos.

In Dronar’s glorious engine eight separate sounds are animated by independent arpeggiators and modulations to conjure an otherworldly realm of rainforests, alien planets and exotic lands.

This module is excellent for anyone wanting absorbing exotic organic pads and will be especially useful to film and TV composers.

Customer Reviews

Press Quotes

"After getting a chance to scratch the surface of what the DRONAR Rolling Percussion has to offer through the first look video, I think this library will be extremely useful if you are scoring for horror, suspense, thriller or looking for a new tool for creating tension.  That said, there is a pretty broad variety of timbres that this instrument can create. Best of all, playback is sounding very fresh and modern, all part of the beauty of new sample sets inside the DRONAR engine."  - Don Bodin, Sample Library Review

System Requirements

Minimum requirements (Dronar will run, but not many instances and freezing will be needed
to run alongside other resource-hungry plugins):

  • Four cores, i5
  • 4GBRAM
  • Windows 7-10 or OS X 10.11 and above
  • Kontakt 5.8.1
  • Avoid directly hosting in Logic Pro X with a pre-2014 or less powerful Mac (Logic Pro X
    forces Dronar to run on one core which can lead to CPU spikes on less powerful or older Macs including Mac Pros, so a different DAW or external host such as VE PRO is recommended to avoid this)

Recommended system (Dronar should run smoothly) :

  • At least four cores, i7
  • At least 16 GB RAM
  • Windows 7-10 or OS X 10.11 and above • Kontakt 5.8.1 or later
  • Installed on an SSD drive
  • Computer from 2014 or newer
  • 256 samples audio buffer
