IK Multimedia has introduced Orchestral Percussion, an add-on instrument collection for Miroslav Philharmonik 2 and SampleTank 3 that contains over 45 symphonic percussion instruments.
IK says that ‘users will get the majesty of full-range, dynamic timpani, the stirring power of a massive 36? gran cassa orchestral bass drum, the unmistakable punctuation of symphonic chau gongs and piatti cymbals. Also included are the ultra-stylized articulations of three different classical snare drums along with flexible variations of sleighbells, tambourines, triangles, castanets, bell tree and more.’.
Here’s the official intro video:
All instruments in Orchestral Percussion are provided with multiple round robin samples, avoiding the “machine gun effect” of triggering the same sample over and over. Multiple velocities are also provided for the instruments, for dynamic range and tonal depth.
Orchestral Percussion also includes over over 100 MIDI patterns and over 400 audio loops covering difficult-to-program rolls, crescendos and other dynamic performances. Players can work with these files directly in Miroslav Philharmonik 2 or SampleTank 3, or drag them into the DAW timeline for further editing.

Orchestral Percussion for Miroslav Philharmonik 2 and SampleTank 3 is available now from the IK online store and the SampleTank 3 Custom Shop for $/€99.99 (excl. taxes).
