Loopmasters has launched Drums Of Sparta, a sample pack by composer Russ Harris featuring a collection of dramatic cinematic drums, destined to enrich your productions in music, film, TV and gaming.

Loopmasters Drums Of Sparta

Russel Harris has over 25 years of experience in the music industry; both in the studio and on the road with musicians from The Cure, Erasure and Bastille to name a few. Over the years, he’s gained notoriety among filmmakers and games developers for his off-kilter scores and atonal soundscape works – with a love for the bombastic beats of huge cinematic percussion orchestras.

Drums Of Sparta comes from a carefully honed arsenal of world percussion, offering producers a highly versatile and adaptable collection which lays the essential foundations of truly atmospheric drum tracks. Featuring over 400 professionally recorded samples of Taiko Drums, Daiko, Hira Daiko, Doumbek, Dundun, Mondo Toms, Chang Chang, Hang and Frame Drums alongside many other elements of orchestral percussion – Drums of Sparta takes no prisoners!

Each loop has been carefully arranged and produced to inhabit a realistic acoustic space, with the natural timings and velocities captured in fine detail, interlocking dynamics of a live cinematic orchestra. As well as full drum loops broken down into their individual elements, there are over 100 drum fills to add variation and spice to the mix.

Russ brings you a fresh, dramatic flavour and gives you the building blocks to make you production stand out. Drums of Sparta comes at tempos between 72-180BPM, so is suited for a full range of applications – as well as House, Drum & Bass, Techno, Hip Hop, Downtempo and Ambient music.
