Drums of War 2 rules!
Nov 26, 2010
There we go! After the “Drums of War” that was released a while ago, Cinesamples has worked on a much much more extensive cinematic drums library “Drums of War 2″ and really came out with a fantastic product!
It’s well focussed, brilliantly sampled and it’s innovative. (I love the crescendo mapping, the 10xRR and all the keyswitches programmed for the effects!)
I am already using it in my next composition
Have you seen Q?

Full new instrument from Vir2, and it’s not a gadget, really?
Q has twenty-three main categories. Here you start thinking do they have an organization problem? Well the thing is they have the ambition to cover a lot of very diverse sounds for movie sound effects.
Honestly, very often, when one tries to do too much, it ends up being superficial. I haven’t tried this library, but i am suspecting it has the same flaw. Just a suspicion really.
Some things do sound good to my ears though, when i read Granular Orchestra or Hong Kong Cinema sounds … curious to find out what’s in there.
For sure the interface looks good, the sounds sound good, and they end up with a very professional looking product, as Vir2 always does, so … who wants to try and give some feedback?
MOTU got it all right!

The iPad is now a control surface for Digital Performer:
Yes! and I am waiting for that one coming from either Presonus or/and Steinberg … guys?
Imagine when you’ll be able to control your VSTs in there as well …. yooohooo…
Cinetoms 2 and cinesnares

Cinesamples continue their way to delivering good quality libraries with their 2 new titles: cinesnares and cinetoms 2. The upcoming “voxo facts” will be an interesting competition to the wordbuilder with a scriptable phrase building technology based on the Kontakt 4 engine. Looking forward to hear all that!

Tonehammer’s crazy little brother microhammer has realease a serie of very interesting libraries: spirit flute, berimbau, sand drums, kokiriko, and so on are incredibly affordable Kontakt libraries that you can play with just like toys to make very serious and original projects. Looking forward to hear that Clay drum demo!
