Percussion Box + Cymbal EFX

Percussion Box + Cymbal EFX


Hi! My name is Andy Stroud and this is my Percussion Box and Cymbal EFX sample library.

The idea behind this library was to record sounds that would work well in both orchestral and pop settings. As a drummer and percussionist I really enjoy incorporating little flourishes with shakers, tambourines and cymbals into recordings or live sessions as I believe it can add some very interesting texture to a track. These flourishes quickly became the main focus of this library along with some accented hits.

For the percussion sounds I recorded studio shakers, small egg shakers and some seed shakers. For the cymbals I recorded a range of dark sounding Zildjian K Dry Ride cymbals and some brighter sounding Meinl Crashes amongst others. Having a range of different sound qualities within the same articulations I believe is very important and reflects the way in which I like to structure my percussion set up for recording.

I hope you can find a place for these sounds in some of your own compositions. Thanks for reading!
