Colossal Toms

Tom Ensemble - 127 Velocity layers!

Product Overview

ARIA Sounds are proud to present "Colossal Toms", an ensemble of eight separately playable toms, with tunings from large and deep to high.

One of the things that really makes this library stand out, easy to use, and realistic, is that we tried to max out the velocity layers, so each hit has up to 127 different, separately recorded dynamics. This means, on top of the fact that you virtually eliminate the problem of hearing one sample twice too soon, creating an artificial sound, but you can obtain extremely realistic performances.

A loud section can be easily scaled down in dynamics, due to the fact that there are so many velocity layers - see the upcoming demos for examples of this.

The instrument is also compatible with both version 4 and 5 of Kontakt, and comes with a close mic position, and hall mic position. Each drum has been played with varied techniques, including soft mallets, sticks, sticks with newspaper on the drum, rims, hands, brushes etc.

Click each of the drum icons on the interface to load and unload that particular drum. Unloaded drums will appear on the keyboard interface as black, and loaded drums with active samples will be shown as blue keys. This library runs in KONTAKT 4 and above. Library size is 6GB
