Spitfire Audio has announced the availability of Abbey Road Orchestra: Low Percussion.
Low Percussion explores the timbral and textural range of 20 drums from across the orchestral repertoire and further, with up to seven beater options per drum, performing hits, rolls, swirls and sweeps, performed by virtuoso percussionist Joby Burgess and sampled in incredible detail.
Spitfire says that the new sound library lays the foundations for their flagship Professional Composer Series, as the most detailed sample library that it has ever created. It features performances by British world-class percussionist Joby Burgess (Black Panther, Mission: Impossible) in Abbey Road Studios’ world-famous Studio One, beautifully captured by GRAMMY® Award-winning engineer Simon Rhodes (Skyfall, Avatar).
Company co-founder Paul Thomson describes the new sound library as “a collection of unique and rare instruments, captured in extreme detail, and with a really expressive feel. This is the most detail we have ever created in any of our projects.”

percussion is one of those things I rather do myself; you can get a lot of aggression out, and it’s fun!
Amen! Play my drums 2x a day. Pretty good workout. At least an hour each session.
I wish someone would would make a rack mount unit based on the old Roland Trigger to MIDI modules. I’m guessing some company could make a 16 input version in a single rack space.
Let you change note assignments via a simple menu or buttons or whatever. The LCDs on my TD-20 and TD-10 are both doing the death fade. Yeah drums are IMHO, an under developed controller. Akira Jimbo was a master at using velocity to trigger MIDI stuff while he played.
Inflation in England must be pretty high if they charge this much. Anyway, I don’t buy from this company any longer. I get a bad vibe from them.
