Big Fish Audio Epic Drums
Picture a chase scene, with Matt Damon
jumping over a barbed wire fence, pursued
by snarling dogs and the Stasi. Or, imagine
the airplane piloted by the Good Guy, with
Sidewinder missiles bearing down fast . . .
or the suspense scene where the evil Dr.
Doom starts the countdown sequence that
will destroy humanity as we know it, with
the ever-resourceful Bond-type character smashing the
faces of bad guys left and right after managing to escape
the Shark Tank of Certain Death.
In situations like these, you want fast, heavy, adrenalininducing
percussion, with big cymbals, bigger toms, orchestral
kicks, hard tympani hits, weird percussion, and a serious
dose of steroids. You want Epic Drums.
This reminds me of Heavyocity’s Evolve instrument, but is
more focused on a particular sound—epic drums. (In fact if
you’d rather play these sounds as an instrument, a 2.4GB
download is available for $99.95 with Apple Loops and Kontakt
There are 40 folders with BPM notations, each with an
average of 30 files that includes a mix of loops and oneshots.
It’s easy to build a scene from these various elements,
and the one-shots are a gem; add some of them to your
standard drum kit for some real power, taking this library
further than being only for soundtracks.
BOOM! CRASH! Pocka-pocka-pocka-pocka POW—BADOOM!!!
Meet Epic Drums.
