Spitfire Audio has launched HZ03 – London Solos, a new volume in the series of Hans Zimmer percussion libraries for Native Instruments Kontakt and Kontakt Player.
Percussion legend Frank Ricotti and long term collaborator with Hans plays the definitive anthology of percussion instruments and styles developed over ten years of blockbuster score making. Volume 3 completes the Hans Zimmer project with a beautiful selection of solo instruments that offer added bite, detail, focus, clarity and nuance to this epic series. Hans loves the quiet layers more than any other so whilst, as Frank would put it, the “twat it” layers give you the bitey thunder you’d expect, the lower layers offer up the potential for engaging delicate drum programming to help tick your cues along.
Instruments played in a variety of ways include: Bucket, Snare, Crusher, Paper Djun, Tombek, Dohl, Darbuca, Surdu, Darbucket. All recorded super deep at Air-Studios, one of the finest scoring stages on the planet. With a number of mixes, mics and positions produced by Hans himself and Grammy winners Alan Meyerson & Geoff Foster.
The Kontakt Player powered library is available for the introductory price of £149 GBP until November 14th, 2014 (RRP £199 GBP).
