Nine Volt Audio releases Action Drums: Taiko Edition
Nine Volt Audio has released Action Drums: Taiko Edition, a sample library that brings the power, thunder and excitement of Japanese taiko drums to the REX, Stylus RMX, ACID wav and Apple Loop formats.
Recorded in a concert hall with microphones from stage to balcony, Action Drums: Taiko Edition captures the energy resonating from every strike, boom and cinematic blow.
Action Drums: Taiko Edition features
- Available on DVD or via Download and features 100% copyright free loops.
- Contains 680+ loops in the REX2, Stylus RMX, Reason ReFill, Apple Loop and ACIDized Wav formats.
