SIEGE DRUM Explained



Whether a dragon is attacking a town, or a squad of archers are releasing a hellfire of arrows on to a castle... SIEGE DRUM should be in your composing arsenal to help up the drama of your music! Our third release brings a cost effective set of cinematic / epic drum multisamples to your composing palette perfect for your next film or game score. For SIEGE DRUM we have recorded a large 13 x 13 Medieval Davul Drum in both a studio setting for extremely dry recordings as well as in an old late 19th century hall built in 1896 giving the recordings a very unique and nice sense of space. Only compatible with the FULL version of Kontakt 4.2+


We recorded (in both venues) the drum being hit by hands, a large leather mallet, a rattan, as well as traditional sticks each giving the drum a very unique timbre. Every hit has 4X Round Robins and up to 5 velocity layers. 14 patches in all, this drum can have some serious low end or even masquerade as a tom, open snare, or frame drum. If played together these patches can sound MASSIVE. Also included are a series of FX and rolls adding a nice bonus to the entire package. Like Ambient Metal Percussion, the GUI has all of the same tweaks and features from an Arpeggiator, to pitch control, 13 custom Impulse Responses, a dry / wet control, and even the ability to control the EQ, attack, and release of the samples! 


The pitch control in particular makes SIEGE DRUM into a wholly new instrument.  Lowering the pitch can make it sound much like a huge taiko or bassdrum, while raising it can make the drum sound like a Tom or even a Dholak.  Versatility all at a cost effective price are key with this release and we know you'll love adding this to your compositions.
