"This is an amazing package and the price is a steal for what you’re getting. These are some of the best drum recordings I’ve heard in ages. Plus it’s useful even beyond the drums, as this is a perfect foley tool for video games and movies too." - Ask Audio

"All in all, Go2 is hard to fault. Rob Papen appears to have achieved what they set out to do: create a cheap, workhorse of a synth with enough bite and depth to keep you entertained in the long term while not being too complex. The extensive morphing and modulation system is enjoyable and simple to use, meaning it's just as easy to dig into unique, wild-sounding synthesis as it is to knock up the most basic of patches. Its price, sound quality, versatility and ease of use mean that Go2 might just live up to its name." - Resident Advisor

Customer Reviews

Press Quotes

"Trailers for action/thriller movies do tend to hit big in the drum/percussion department and thankfully, Saga's sonics seem to be well up to the task.  That said, if you want to get subtle, there's enough detail in the velocity based sampling to let you do that also.  There are, of course plenty of alternative cinematic drum and percussion libraries out there, however, Saga more than holds its own. It is also competitively priced so you don't need a Hollywood budget to get on board. If your palette of cinematic and percussion sounds needs expanding, Saga Acoustic Trailer Percussion is well worth auditioning."  - Sound On Sound

"They’re sounding stunning. They are very intuitive to use and much like the rest of Red Room Audio’s instruments they’re made for fast work and playability." - Reuben Cornell, The Samplecast

"The release of SAGA Acoustic Trailer Percussion came as a nice surprise as the library features a remarkably punchy and powerful, yet very flexible sound that leaves room for custom processing if needed. [...] SAGA’s neatly arranged interface allows for instant usability and presents every important feature at first sight." - EPICOMPOSER (Click here to read the full review)

"Straight up Saga sounds big, focused and energetic. The orchestral ensembles are a refreshing thing to hear in a library of this kind, and it really rounds out the library’s applications should you require some more traditional classical percussion but larger and louder." - Rating 5/5 - StrongMocha.com
