Time+Space has announced the of the eleventh module in Gothic Instruments’ award-winning series of atmosphere creation tools – DRONAR Rolling Percussion.

Don’t be fooled by the name, while DRONAR Rolling Percussion has an extensive collection of expressive drum and cymbals rolls (and can be used just for them!), its main draw is a massive set of beautiful, rich, atmospheric evolving pads harvested from an exotic new sound-world.

The rich organic sampled drums in the core library include timpani, tom-toms, bells, cymbals, gongs, triangles, tam-tams, a bass drum, snares, a vibraphone, an angklung, a xylophone and a balafon.

The instruments in DRONAR Rolling Percussion were performed recorded and further processed by sound design expert Alessandro Camnasio. As well as natural untuned drum rolls, we get tuned versions of most sounds that can be played on a keyboard for chords and rich arpeggios, all beautifully responsive to Mod Wheel expression for powerful swells and crescendos.
