We are proud to present Cinematic Thunder: Epic Orchestral Toms. Recorded in a large concert hall in central California from three mic positions for complete flexibility, Cinematic Thunder delivers an epic sound. From soft and warm to big and bombastic, Cinematic Thunder is an absolute and indispensable production tool.

Cinematic Thunder contains four master patches: Sticks, Mallets, Group Hits and Group Big Hits. Each patch contains unique and powerful drum sounds within an extremely user-friendly and versatile interface.

The Sticks patch offers punchy attacks in the lower velocities and clear, crisp tones in the higher velocities while the Mallets patch offers deep and soft attacks in the lower velocities and gigantic cinematic impacts in the higher velocities. Both the Stick and Mallet patches offer six different drum groups including; surdo, 18” Toms, 16” Toms, 14” Toms, 12” Toms, and 10” Toms, as well as combo hits which are samples of two toms being struck simultaneously for an even more robust impact.

The Group Hits patch contains hits as well as two-drum flams for each drum. The Group Big Hits patch is a great patch for adding big accents, it contains only single hits and flams played at maximum volume.

Customer Reviews

Press Quotes

"They did a great job of offering something super powerful that is also deadly simple to use." -

"The overall quality of this library is excellent. There's great flexibiity in here and I could easily find a place for this in my orchestral productions. Cinematic Thunder is a high-quality tom library meant for orchestral compositions requiring high energy, massive impact, such as action trailers and movie scores – and in a certain hybrid productions. A fun and truly huge-sounding collection." – Music Tech

"...As a source of very playable -and suitably thunderous- orchestral toms, Cinematic Thunder provides plenty of bang for a relatively modest buck. Well worth auditioning alongside some of the obvious competition." John Walden, SOUND ON SOUND
