This new cinematic percussion pack comes courtesy of composer Russ Harris and boasts a large number of dynamic percussion loops and hits. The bulk of the pack is its more than 160 mixed percussion patterns, with separate loops for the individual parts. There are more traditional toms, taiko and percussion instruments alongside big cinematic hits and industrial junk-foley sounds, which add a sense of grandeur. Also included are an impressive number of impact sounds and foley one-shots, including aluminium buckets, chains and steel trays. Unfortunately, the percussion loops aren’t labelled with time signatures, so you’ll have to use your ears to work them out.
