Aria Sounds recently released Catalyst, their “high end cinematic percussion” sample library. The library features drums and percussion instruments with four blend-able microphone positions (close, overhead, mid, far) for greater control over the sound, as well as up to five round robins per note, and multi dynamic layers.
Each drum in the Catalyst sample library was recorded with different types and sizes of sticks/mallets; and when combined with the multiple microphone positions, there are a wide variety of different sounds that can be gotten from each instrument.
