At the heart of this library are the Single Hits patches which include Left and Right hand samples in 8 velocity layers, that’s 16 samples per note! These instruments have been programmed so that the length of the release trail can be controlled by the mod wheel. Additionally you’ll find long sampled rolls in both looped and unlooped variations with specially edited release samples that allow you to end the roll at any time. And of course the long roll samples wouldn’t be complete without the inclusion of mod wheel controlled crossfades. You’ll find three variations with 5, 3 and 2 dynamic layers to fit your polyphony demands. There are also fixed length crescendos and diminuendos in 2, 4 and 8 second options. The downloadable version of the timpani includes all of these articulations using the medium mallet for only $70 (US). For the truly complete solution it’s only $110 (US) for the full DVD featuring 2 additional mallets with these same great choices of articulations.
As with the other Modular Series products we’ve included effect samples such as Single Hit Glissandos, Glissando Rolls and Rolls with a suspended cymbal on the drum.
Whether you are a power user or a hobbyist, the feature list and price of this module are enough to make any serious musician want to add this exquisite sounding instrument to their arsenal.
