Hunter’s Percussion – World

Djembe, Conga, Bongo, Udu and Taiko Family

The story

This is the world percussion portion of a multi-part percussion library I put together during my final year of university. For a few years now, this library has been a secret sauce/garnish that I would blend into my other paid and professional libraries and figured it was about time to share!

Despite this being my first go at sampling, I had access to all of the conservatory’s instruments, multiple studios, and professional gear so I was pretty intent on quality and detailed sampling. Most articulations were captured with left and right hand variants and at least 6 velocity layers/4 round robins (unless the articulation or drum was specialized in some way).

The rig:

Preamps- API’s THE BOX, and Focusrite ISA428
Close Mics- Neumann KM 184’s
Room Mics- Neumann U87s

The collection:

Taiko Family (O Daiko, Taiko, Shime Daiko)

  • Perfection.

    This misses absolutely nothing, and it's actually better executed than many premium instruments that I've encountered. Absolute perfection, must download, must use, and must be thankful for the contribution. This will help many, many composers who start out without having a proper percussion library. Kudos!

  • Fantastic pack.

    As a percussionist it is nice to see such a well produced product.

  • Five stars across the board...

    Truly one of the "hidden" gems of Pianobook. This library has the quality that I would expect in a paid Spitfire library all for free. It's definitely a must-have if you're writing for any type of percussion. Highly, highly recommend.

  • Excellent Quality Again

    I have just reviewed the Orchestral Percussion pack by Hunter and this one is every bit as good. Once again crisp and clear samples with little or low discernible background noise.

    The Taiko is some interesting sauce to be added under arrangements for sure.

  • Thats also free?

    That is a great little selection of ethnic drums. The sample quality is top notch. But I cannot play these damn ethnic rythms. But thats my fault!
