The Epic Tom Ensemble is a large multi-sample library dedicated to massive ensemble percussion. We captured a variety of power articulations, using a combination of high-tuned 10″ – 14″ toms, roto-toms and octabans, various floor toms, bass drums and custom designed mega-toms. Perfect for raging battle scenes or when you just need a really loud boom. We highly recommend trying it with our Epic Dohl, Small Epic Percussion and Bamboo Stick Ensembles. All extensively recorded by some of the very best percussionists* in the world, in a high-ceiling glass, stone and tile hall specifically designed for sample recording.
We originally released our two-volume Epic Toms collection with the hope that we*d one day be able to bring it to non-Kontakt users. While we were at it, we decided to give the entire collection a mighty overhaul and add a wealth of new content. We now bring you Tonehammer*s complete Epic Toms.
Important note: This complete Epic Toms Library contains all of the combined original (discontinued) Epic Toms Vol. I and Vol. II libraries, with plenty of new features, deep programming improvements and special custom patches, plus our new 600MB complete Solo Epic Bass Drum library and a collection of new playable ambiences and drones. Many of the core instrument patches in the Epic Toms library now also include exs24 and sfz versions as well. All previous users that purchased Epic Toms Vol. 1 and/or
2 will receive unique upgrade offers.
