Sound Dust releases Steel Drum Percussion Room mk2

Sound Dust Steel Drum Percussion Room

Sound Dust has announced the mk2 version of Steel Drum Percussion Room, a percussion based sample library.

A kit of lovely dusty binaural acoustic drum samples and slightly prepared steel drums….a kind of Tom Waits percussion machine featuring drums in all shapes and sizes.

Theres 4 octaves of huge flappy marching band bass drums, ripped and rattly snares and kicks, frame drums, congas, bongos, toms, hi-hats, cymbals, boxes, metal shelving…you name it.

Plus the “prepared” steel drums. These are a neglected set of bass and cello steel pans played with fingers and soft mallets to avoid sounding like proper steel drums ( more apocalypse than calypso ), the tunings are a bit iffy, but theres plenty of velocity layers per hit for a rusty hang drum like effect.

Great for film scoring. Both kits were recorded binaurally in a great sounding room with long decays with a total of 168mb of samples.

Steel Drum Percussion Room mk2 is available to purchase for £15 GBP.
